A wonderful one-time Wealden hall house

    Balcombe Farmhouse

    A grade II* listed former Wealden hall house dating from the 15th century with later alterations.

    Brimming with charm and character, this beautifully presented home is arranged over three floors and offers an abundance of exposed timbers and beams, brick flooring, sash and casement windows, and lovely open fireplaces to the reception rooms.

    Set amidst beautiful gardens, the property is in Biddenden Road on the edge of the sought-after village of Frittenden, which is within the Cranbrook School catchment area.

    You enter the ground floor via a south-facing reception hall/dining room with wood panelling and brick flooring and an outlook over the gardens.

    There are two further reception rooms – a dual-aspect drawing room and a sitting room which has access to the gardens via a glazed door, both with inglenook fireplaces.

    The farmhouse-style kitchen has a range of painted cupboards with wood and granite work surfaces, and includes a Belfast sink and two-oven oil Aga as well as an electric oven and an integral dishwasher and fridge.

    The breakfast room, which is open to the kitchen, includes French doors leading out to a terrace.

    A utility room has space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

    An oak staircase leads to the spacious first floor landing, complete with picturesque views across the gardens to the countryside beyond.

    There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en suite) spread across both the first and second floors.

    The generous gardens feature an expansive lawn to the side and rear of the home and several terraces, as well as an all-weather tennis court which is well-screened by evergreen hedging.

    There is off-road parking in the drive, which is accessed via an electric gate. Plus there is a garage and garden store.
