Full property description


The property is set within approx. 2.7 acres of garden & paddocks and is beautifully situated within an idyllic rural setting, which commands views over some of Kents finest countryside.

A striking modern barn, newly built with an uncompromising degree of craftsmanship and attention to detail offering 2750 Sq Ft of superb living accommodation.
Summer Charm Barn has been meticulously constructed into an impressive contemporary residence, with a harmonious blend of modern luxury and comfort. Natural materials combined with high specification fixtures and fittings blend beautifully with the high vaulted ceilings, vast open space, and extensive glazing.

The property is entered via an entrance lobby, with cloakroom and coat closet, this in turn leads into an impressive open plan living space. Solid oak doors and tiled flooring set the scene for the rest of the property as these features flourish throughout.

The kitchen has been fitted with a range of sleek, contemporary units which are set around oak work surfaces. A range of appliances including a wine cooler, double oven with warming draws, fridge freezer, dishwasher, combination microwave and coffee machine have all been integrated. There is a matt black sink set within the worktop and is completed with a matching Quooker tap.

A large island integrates an induction hob with extractor fan, whilst there is additional storage cupboards and a seating area creating a breakfast bar. A dining room table would sit perfectly next to the bi-fold doors, enabling you to enjoy views of the garden and woodland.
The kitchen is further complemented by a well-equipped utility room which also integrates laundry appliances and a useful sink.

Internal windows have been built into a beautiful oak wall which creates a division between the dining area and sitting room. This triple aspect room has bi-fold doors which open onto raised decking, whilst a Stovax wood burning stove is set within an exposed brick chimney breast.

A distinctive spiral staircase, with striking curved glass rises from the living area to a wonderful mezzanine galleried landing, the area is illuminated with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows.

There are two large double bedrooms to either end of the hallway both with impressive, vaulted ceilings and luxury en - suite shower rooms, the main bedroom, which is an impressive 24 ft in length, benefits from two Juliet balconies overlooking the paddock and far reaching countryside. There are also three additional generously proportioned bedrooms and a beautifully appointed family bathroom to complete the first floor accommodation.

An air source heat pump has been installed allowing the barn to run economically, twinned with the excellent insulation and double glazing ensures the property delivers excellent energy efficiency.

The versatile layout and impeccable quality of finish of the property are matched by its utterly magnificent setting, making this a rare family home.


Summer Charm Barn is set within approx. 2.7 acres of grounds, backing onto orchards, the flexibility of the plot does leave it open to possible equestrian use and a 'tack shed' has been fitted on the plot with power and water. The Barn is approached via a gated gravelled driveway, which provides parking for numerous cars and leads on to an integral double garage and the main front door. The weatherboard faade of the barn and the garage complements the dark framed windows and characterful brickwork.

Bi-fold doors open onto raised decking which is surrounded by vast open space, the well-manicured lawn is bordered by fencing, whilst an open paddock can be enjoyed beyond the main garden.
