Lot 2: A superbly positioned attractive period farmhouse, with stunning medieval barn, surrounded by its own land.
Little Moorden is a charming 16th Century Grade II listed farmhouse, which has been sympathetically added to over the years and boasts a wealth of period features.
The property is situated in a truly idyllic location and sits centrally within its grounds of 37.5 acres, consisting of pretty established formal gardens, paddocks and woodland. The property also benefits from ancillary accommodation in the form of a detached vaulted barn with annexe. Little Moorden is constructed of brick with pretty tile hung upper elevations, under a Kent peg tile roof with wooden casement windows.
The principal reception rooms are generously proportioned and retain some charming original features, including inglenook fireplaces, exposed wooden beams, drop latch doors and original brick flooring. The stunning vaulted kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Aga forms part of the latest additions to the property. Fitted with shaker style cream units and fully integrated Miele appliances, it benefits from triple aspect views of the surrounding garden and fields beyond. The sitting room with original inglenook fireplace has French doors leading to the terrace and swimming pool. The dining room, again with original inglenook, utility room, snug room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor, the landing features beautiful original wide oak floor boards. There are four double bedrooms and two family bathrooms on this floor, with a further double bedroom and large attic store/walk in dressing room on the second floor.
The magnificent detached barn offers potential for a wide variety of uses. The stunning vaulted reception room is perfect for large scale entertaining and is currently used as a concert hall, as well as yoga classes. The adjoining kitchen, shower room and two further rooms make it an ideal space for offices, and/or further sleeping accommodation.
This property has 37.5 acres of land.
Little Moorden is approached along a private driveway, flanked on both sides by open farmland and culminating in a generous parking and turning area beside the barn.
The gardens are delightful and immaculately maintained, with mature herbaceous borders, shrubs and fruit trees, including fig, walnut and mulberry. There is a productive vegetable garden, including a large asparagus bed and soft fruit cage.
Outside the kitchen the York stone terrace is ideal for entertaining, with a view of the pond framed by wild irises and rhododendron and home to moorhens and mallards, with field beyond.
The swimming pool and tennis court, paddock, two large fields, and area of bluebell wood complete the charming setting. It is extremely rare to find a property in such a glorious position, with such close proximity to London, looking on to its own land in every direction.
Little Moorden is situated in an idyllic and secluded position, between the sought after villages of Leigh and Penshurst, in a designated area of outstanding beauty. The property sits centrally within its grounds and enjoys far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
