Gardens and Grounds

You will not stumble on this property as it lies at the end of a private lane beyond beautifully converted farm buildings, in a peaceful setting. Large wooden gates open from the lane into a generous off road parking area giving access to the grounds and garden entrance
to the house and pedestrian access to the barn.

Part of the detached barn of ragstone with timber elevations under a kent peg tiled roof has power and lights and currently is used as a gym/entertaining area. Being vaulted there is huge space for storage and could easily revert back in to garaging using the retained up
and over doors that adjoin the lane.

The gardens have been sensitively landscaped using some of the old ragstone found within the grounds. Varying terraces that enjoy views of the property and groundsedge a lawned area that overlook the woodland. Italian slate sweeps around to the steps leading to the side entrance of the barn and continues down to the lower terrace.

The lower terrace provides for a generous area to barbeque, with a fun garden bar, water feature and subtle lighting for those barmy evenings.

A deep paved terrace adjoining the property leads on through a pergola to the sunken woodland. Once a railway line to the medway towns, now a haven for wildlife.
