Welcome to The Barn, a splendid and distinct detached home nestled in the heart of the serene Nonington village.

As one approaches The Barn, the deep oak panelled entrance door heralds a grand reception hall, seamlessly flowing into an open-plan living space.

The heart of this home undoubtedly resides in its kitchen/breakfast room.

Ascending to the first floor, the galleried landing serves as a gateway to the private quarters. The master bedroom, a sanctuary of luxury, offers en-suite facilities and newly installed fitted wardrobes. Accompanying this are a further double bedroom and a meticulously designed family bathroom. The charm continues to the second floor, hosting an additional bedroom and a versatile space, currently arrayed as a study, echoing the home's blend of elegance and practicality.

The Barnlet, once a humble garage, now stands as a self-contained one-bedroom annexe. It boasts an open-plan kitchen/living area, a high-quality downstairs shower room, and a spacious mezzanine bedroom. The integration of quality fixtures and fittings creates a seamless extension of the main houses luxury.

This property is a harmonious blend of past and present, offering a unique opportunity to own a piece of Kent's heritage infused with modern luxury. Embrace the chance to experience the allure of The Barn, a sanctuary where every detail echoes a story of elegance and charm.
