A very impressive Grade II listed thatched home lying just outside West Farleigh village, near Maidstone.
The attractive gardens and grounds extend to some six acres, which also include a swimming pool, tennis court, gym, thatched outbuildings and an additional single-storey, two-bedroom cottage.
Built in the 17th century with later period additions, Thatched House is in a lovely elevated, rural position with fabulous westerley views.
It has been beautifully restored over recent years and is extremely well presented and maintained, providing nearly 2,900 sq ft of accommodation.
There are four reception rooms on the ground floor – a dining room, drawing room, study and sitting/family room – all with attractive oak floorboards, double-aspect windows and original period detail, such as oak doors and beams.
A particularly notable feature is the sitting room’s inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove.
The large kitchen-breakfast room is fitted with an attractive and comprehensive range of units with wooden work tops, and there is a separate utility room.
On the first floor there are six bedrooms with good storage space, a family bathroom with separate shower and an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom.
The house is approached via a gated entrance and gravel drive, flanked to one side by apple orchards and to the other by mature mixed hedging.
There is ample parking and access to the open-bay garaging, and more land on the opposite side of the road.
