Delightful rural views from this character farmhouse


    Ethnam is a Grade II listed farmhouse filled with character, and sited in a semi-rural position in the village of Sandhurst, near Hawkhurst.

    Offering excellent accommodation and many period features, the property has red brick lower elevations and tile hung upper elevations under a tiled roof with two towering chimneys.

    There are leaded light windows in the majority of the rooms, some with views over the garden and beyond, as well as exposed timbers and some original flooring.

    Internally, the accommodation is well laid out and boasts reception rooms of excellent proportions,
    as well as an attractive full-height entrance hall with a galleried sitting area, parquet flooring and a brick inglenook fireplace.

    The ground floor features a spacious triple-aspect drawing room, a separate dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom, a boot room and a study. Plus there is a useful cellar below.

    Upstairs, the property has a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a guest bedroom with en-suite cloakroom, two further bedrooms and two more bathrooms.

    There is a fifth bedroom with eaves access on the second floor.

    The house is located towards the end of a lane and approached via a gated entrance over a sweeping driveway leading to a parking area.

    The gardens are of particular note, and include a formal garden with large lawned areas and flower borders, and a beautiful rose garden with box hedging.

    The grounds also include two ponds, a small orchard, a secluded compost area and a multitude of mature trees and shrubs.

    To the rear of the house there is a walled swimming pool with paved surround and a pool house with a shower room.

    There are wonderful south-facing views over the surrounding countryside, and the land totals around 2.59 acres.
