Character barn in gorgeous grounds revamped with a contemporary feel

    Tong Barn

    Believed to date back to around 1650, this fine Grade II listed barn has been beautifully renovated to a high standard. The ample interior combines period features with stylish contemporary touches, and provides flexible family accommodation.

    Located in the historic village of Brenchley, the property sits in stunning gardens and grounds, including a large apple orchard.

    The house opens to a large vaulted reception/dining hall, and the L-shaped drawing room also offers plenty of space, along with a Stovax wood burner, underfloor heating and French doors to the garden. From here stairs rise to an impressive galleried family room with the vaulted ceiling here reaching full roof height.

    The well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a range of white cupboards and drawers, long granite composite work surfaces, a central island with cupboards underneath and integrated appliances. The dining hall, drawing room and kitchen all have porcelain tiled flooring.

    Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room with door opening to the courtyard.

    In another wing of the ground floor, the generous principal bedroom has a dressing area and a beautifully fitted en-suite bathroom.

    There is a guest bedroom with fitted cupboards and a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room – which also opens to the reception hall.

    On the top floor there are two further bedrooms, accessed via a second staircase in the drawing room. They both share a washroom.

    An attached studio with cloakroom is currently used as an artist studio.

    The house is approached through a delightful walled garden with timber gates, and there is parking for several vehicles.

    The garden is mainly laid to lawn and has a variety of shrubs and trees as well as a vegetable patch, a brick built gazebo and shed.

    In addition, there is a wild meadow which has a pond and a pathway to an apple orchard of about three and a half acres.
