Approached over a long, winding gravel drive, Fourwinds stands sentinel atop of Hart Hill and affords the most glorious southerly views. To the east the coast at Dungeness is visible on a fine day and to the west views over the Weald. The house sits proudly in its grounds.
A welcoming reception hall leads to two generous reception rooms. The sitting room is double aspect and has doors to the rear garden; it is a lovely room to relax in, particularly in winter with the wood burning stove roaring. The drawing room is an elegant and gracious room with wide windows taking full advantage of the views, and a deep recess provides a quiet area to curl up and read a book.
Adjoining the drawing room is the formal dining room with a deep bay, including doors and windows offering a splendid outlook across the undulating landscape and access to the garden terrace. A further door leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is comprehensively fitted with a range of wall and floor cupboards with a peninsula bar. There is ample space for a large table and chairs for family or informal dining. There is also a study for home-workers, as well as a laundry room and separate utility room, along with a cloakroom.
The staircase rises from the sitting room to give access to the first floor, where steps lead to the separate wings of the upper level. The impressive principal bedroom has two dressing areas, fitted wardrobes, a stylish en suite bathroom; doors from the bedrooms leads out to a balcony - a perfect place for an early morning coffee. There are three further en suite bedrooms, all with storage and two having access to the large, south-west facing balcony
This property has 9.8 acres of land.
A sweeping driveway gives access through parkland grounds to the front of the property and to the triple garage.
With unrivalled vistas across the surrounding Weald, the park like gardens, interspersed with specimen trees, are mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked flower beds, evergreen hedging and clipped topiary.
To the rear of the house is a kitchen garden and a small copse of conifers. An ornamental pond is also a delightful feature. Running across the south-west elevation is a large paved terrace, which provides opportunities for alfresco entertaining.
