Impeccably presented period farmhouse

Masons Farm has been carefully and sensitively refurbished and improved by the current owners over recent years, and is now offered for sale in a high standard of presentation which extends throughout the whole property. To the front of the house are the garage and home office/gymnasium, and adjacent is a stable block, tack room and feed store. The gardens which surround the whole property have been well designed, carefully landscaped and well maintained to make certain that the setting is of equal quality to the house.

The ground floor accommodation is arranged either side of a central hall, with a superbly appointed kitchen/ breakfast room to one side, the generous dining room to the other and the extensive orangery at the rear. A drawing room is found beyond the dining room. Period features and fireplaces abound, and the flooring is a mixture of high quality timber and stone. The utility room and boot room are similarly well appointed.

Upstairs, which can be approached from two staircases, the four principal bedrooms all have bathrooms. There are two more bedrooms on the second floor. It is no surprise to find that the accommodation here is equally well appointed. It also enjoys some of the best long distance views over the gardens and the Weald beyond.

This property has 1.75 acres of land.

Outside

As well as the formal gardens, with a circular lawn lying beyond the well-tended and thoughtfully designed beds designed for year round colour and interest, there are a separate enclosed swimming pool, a manege beyond the hedge (well screened from view) and generous paddocks for the horses. Although there is stabling for several horses, the property will be of interest to others who may consider redeveloping the stables for other purposes.

The garage block to the front of the house was constructed about 10 years ago, and is sympathetic in style to the house. It is of a high quality and the gymnasium could be adapted for other purposes if desired subject to any necessary consents.

Situation

The hamlet of Grafty Green is located in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking the Weald of Kent. Nearby Lenham (3 miles) is a rare example of a medieval village yet still retains an excellent range of local facilities, including boutique shops, village stores, pubs, library, medical centre, schools and a station. The larger village of Headcorn (4 miles) has a further selection of shops and a station. Commuting times from both villages are from around an hour. The popular Sutton Valence school is about 6 miles distant.

The M20 (Junction 8) can be accessed easily via the A20. The High Speed service from Ashford International takes 37 minutes to London St Pancras. The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone, the Port of Dover and Ashford International provide services to the Continent.

Directions

From the M20 (Junction 8): Exit and join the A20 towards Ashford. Continue for about 4 miles and in Harriestsham, turn right onto East Street. Continue onto Sandway Road, and after 1.1 miles turn sharp right on Headcorn Road. The house will be found on the left after about 3 miles; you will pass the Kings Head pub and the house will then be found after about 0.25 mile on the left, identified by the low timber fence and beech hedge.
