Chapel Farm was built for the current owner and completed in 2014. It is styled in the Kentish vernacular with attractive elevations of mellow brick and tile hanging under a tiled roof.
The front door leads to a single storey hall which in turn leads to the drawing room, an impressive room at over 35 feet in length. The large fireplace with wood-burning stove has a heavy oak surround and is the focal point of the room; there are oak floorboards and staircase to the first floor. Next door is the study.
The kitchen/dining/sitting room is at the rear side of the house. It is well fitted with a range of painted base and wall cabinets, and central island, all with light granite work surfaces. There are oak floor boards and the room - at nearly 40 feet in length - has plenty of space for a family to cook, eat and relax. A door leads to the utility room and cloakroom. There is a back door to an enclosed walkway linking the house to the garage.
At the rear of the house is the timber-framed conservatory, a most attractive room with oak floor boards and heating.
The first floor accommodation is a principal bedroom with ensuite shower room and 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are superb views, particularly from the rear bedrooms.
This property has 3 acres of land.
Chapel Farm is approached through a five bar gate and over a tarmacadam drive leading to the parking and turning area in front of the double garage. There are twin automatic doors for access. An external staircase rises to the studio annexe above. This has oak floor boards and a well fitted kitchen at one end and separate shower room.
The house stands in a landscaped garden, with predominantly lawns at the front and a colourful bed outside the front door. Hedging screens the property from the lane and neighbour.
At the rear, just outside the conservatory, is a large paved terrace surrounded by colourful beds and with steps down to a lower terraced area with lawn and an area of kitchen garden. There are some mature trees and hedges delineate the separate garden areas.
At the entrance gate there is a back drive which leads down to the stables. These are of solid block construction with timber cladding under a slate roof. There are three loose boxes with concrete hardstanding at the front; there is power and water.
The paddock extends to about 2.25 acres and is hedged and fenced. It has been maintained by mowing in recent years so is equally suitable for sports as grazing.
The property is set in a fine elevated position in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are tremendous views down to the Kent coast and Thames estuary.
The rural parish of Stalisfield must be amongst Kent's most beautiful villages. The centre is clustered around a green, with the historic Plough Inn and newly built village hall providing the focus for a wide range of community events. The surrounding countryside is characterised by a series of valleys with stunning bluebell woods, arable and pasture, through which there are a network of narrow lanes, footpaths and bridleways. Spuckles Wood, a nature reserve, is nearby.
Shopping facilities are available in Charing, Faversham and Canterbury. There are excellent transport links to the A20, M20 and M2. Rail services to London are available in Faversham (from 67 minutes) and Ashford (from 36 minutes).
There is a good choice of schools nearby with Eastling Primary, Lorenden Prep and secondary schools in Faversham and Canterbury, including grammar schools. Independent schools include The King's School, St Edmunds and Kent College.
From the A20 just west of Charing take the turn north into Hart Hill (signposted to Stalisfield). At the T-junction after just under 2 miles, take the right turn and pass through the centre of Stalisfield Green. Keep on this road and 0.8 miles beyond the Plough Inn, turn right into Hillside Road. The property will be seen on the left after about 400 metres.Read all
