Full property description

An enchanting six-bedroom, unlisted, detached property which dates back to the 17th century and is bursting with original features including open fireplaces, latch key doors and exposed beams. Natural materials and fine craftmanship flourishes throughout and complements the high specification fixtures and fittings.

Set within a rural position with splendid views over peaceful countryside, yet just a short walk or cycle into Hoo St Werburgh village, the property also benefits from being extremely accessible to the motorway and Ebbsfleet high-speed train station for a 19 minute connection into London.

Eschol Farm was once two cottages and has since been generously and sensitively extended, and now offers almost 4000 sq.ft of characterful accommodation. The current owners have an eye for detail and have lovingly renovated throughout, one will expect to find; fine dcor, a bespoke hand-crafted kitchen, newly installed bathrooms, wood burning stoves and Karndean flooring.

There is a wonderful balance of modern convenience and period charm, alongside many energy saving improvements including new double-glazed windows and doors fitted throughout.

The front door opens into an entrance lobby with a characterful circular window, this in turn opens into a stunning kitchen breakfast room with a wood burning stove which is nestled beneath an oak bressummer.

The kitchen has been designed and hand crafted by local joiners who have carefully created a charming kitchen with modern fixtures and appliances. The range is an Everhot stove which sits central to the units and is complemented by quartz work tops and under pelmet lighting. The kitchen is further enhanced by a beautifully appointed utility room with a large pantry, sink area and storage.

The ground floor space has several reception rooms, most of which are configured in the oldest part of the house and brimming with characterful features. There is an elegant dual aspect dining room with an inglenook fireplace situated off the kitchen, whilst to the opposite end of the property, there is a splendid open plan family area.

This room forms part of the extension and blends beautifully from old to new. In the oldest part of the building there is a wood burning stove encompassed by exposed brick and an oak bressummer, whilst to the other end of the room there are two sets of French doors looking out onto the expanse of south facing garden.

A study area sits neatly between the utility and living room, whilst from the dining room there is an entrance lobby to the rear garden and a grand cloakroom.

To the first floor, the period features continue with vaulted beamed ceilings, bespoke joinery, latch key doors and elegant dcor. There are four double bedrooms and two recently installed family bathrooms. The main bedroom has an expanse of fitted wardrobes and also benefits from a stylish ensuite shower room.

Stairs rise to the second floor where one will find another two bedrooms adorned with rich exposed beams.


To the front of the property there is a sweeping driveway which leads to the main house and the double garage. There is great potential to convert the 1100 sq. ft garage into an annexe or home office, STPC.

The 0.51 acre garden wraps around the property and is a combination of patio and an expanse of lawn, interspersed with beautifully planted flower beds and a variety of young trees.

There is an unusual outbuilding, which makes the perfect barbeque/bar area and seating spots have been arranged in the garden making the most of the sunshine at different times of the day.
