An enchanting Grade II listed farmhouse in a rural setting with far-reaching views. Further land available subject to negotiation

Lime Kiln Farm is a fine Grade II listed country farmhouse that has been thoughtfully and sympathetically restored to create a most appealing and fascinating property.

The house, graced with attractive elevations of painted weatherboarding under a Kentish peg tiled roof, offers beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three levels. The many period features, such as exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces, have been successfully blended with modern-day luxuries to create a stylish and comfortable family home.

Situated on the ground floor is a welcoming dual aspect drawing room with an exposed brick inglenook fireplace and a dining room/study with part-panelled walls, built-in bookshelving and an inglenook fireplace.

The remarkable kitchen/breakfast room, boasting a beamed vaulted ceiling and part panelled walls, is fitted with a comprehensive range of units, granite worksurfaces, appliances and a further peninsular unit with a wooden worksurface and cupboards, drawers and integral wine rack below. The breakfast area provides ample space for a breakfast table, perfect for more informal dining, and there is an adjoining utility room. Also located on the ground floor is a bedroom and a shower room.

On the first floor, the bedrooms are arranged around the attractive landing with exposed beams and include a bedroom with an en suite wet room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Located on the second floor is an impressive fifth bedroom with a beamed vaulted ceiling and an en suite bathroom.

Outside Set within about 11.5 acres, Lime Kiln Farm is approached via a sweeping gravelled driveway leading to a parking/turning area at the front of the house. The driveway leads on to the oak-framed triple garage and an open-fronted garage with adjoining workshop.

The lawned gardens contain a variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees and enjoy superb far-reaching views over countryside towards Smarden.

A large field at the east of the property (currently being leased to a local farmer) could be utilised as a paddock or amenity land if wished.

Also situated within the grounds are a large traditional glasshouse and a garden room, with staging, light, power and water.

This property has 11.5 acres of land.
