Virtual viewing available: Beautifully converted Grade II Listed barn in a stunning rural location

Situated in an enviable and quiet rural location Southenay Farm is a delightful Kentish Farmstead. Approached off a country lane via a long driveway, the house sits proudly but discreetly at the end of the driveway taking full of the long distant Downland views. The mellow honey coloured elevations are typical of the local vernacular architecture. The current owners have skilfully improved and developed the site to create a home of style and distinction. The original central cart entrance now forms the principal entrance to the property.

Immediately on entry one is aware of the antiquity of the building with its exposed timbers. The spacious interiors are well planned and suited to modern family living. The open-plan kitchen and dining area has stone-flagged flooring, which extends to the adjacent family room where double doors give access to the rear garden. Bespoke fitted units by Thoroughly Wood have granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and an island unit; the kitchen also features an Aga stove with mantel over. A good-sized utility room with cloakroom adjoins the kitchen, providing additional cupboards, space for appliances and ideal storage for wellies and outdoor wear in the wetter months. Beyond the family room is the really lovely drawing room. With windows on three aspects the room is light and airy with plenty of space to relax in front of the wood-burning stove. There is a further cloakroom in the reception hall.

Four good sized bedrooms are arranged around the first floor landing, with the principal room having excellent en suite facilities and generous storage. Two of the bedrooms have vanity units and custom built storage. A family shower room completes the accommodation at this level.

An integral double car port is adjacent to the utility room and gives dry access to the 25’ games room – an ideal teenagers den! Situated just to one side of the barn is the office/studio building providing the perfect environment for home working - it comprises a large office with an adjoining store room and separate WC. The triple bay cart barn provides garaging and workshop storage.

This property has 2.45 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway to a parking and turning area adjacent to the triple cart-barn. The beautifully-maintained garden is a wonderful setting for the house, with an open outlook to the surrounding undulating countryside to the front.

At the rear, a large paved terrace adjoins the house with access from the family room and provides the ideal setting for outdoor dining and entertaining, with a second sitting area in a secluded spot in the shade of a tree. Banks of shrub and herbaceous borders give year round colour and interest. A high brick wall runs along part of the main boundary.
