An exceptionally well located small estate close to Sevenoaks and Bough Beech Reservoir. Comprising of a Farmhouse, Period Barn and Separate Oast house
Description: The Farmhouse, Winkhurst Green is an exceptionally well located small estate. The property principally comprises a main farmhouse, Tythe Barn and Oast House, all of which are in fairly close proximity to each other and offer huge degrees of potential.
The Farmhouse has accommodation arranged over both ground and first floors. The rooms are light filled, many of which enjoy views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The house has a lovely feel to it and much character with attractive features including parquet flooring, exposed brick walls and delightful fire places.
Adjacent to the principal farmhouse is a detached Tythe Barn which is magnificent. Having the dimensions of over 55ft x 21ft, the barn with its cathedral-esque structure, is truly impressive. It provides fabulous party space but is also suitable for a variety of uses. Appendages to the barn include 2 store rooms, one of which includes two cloakrooms and a low level open building which provides shelter for the swimming pool.
The detached Oast house provides ancillary accommodation to the main house but is also an attractive property in its own right having well-proportioned accommodation, again arranged over both ground and first floors. Linked to this detached Oast House is a series of stables which offer potential for a variety of uses. In addition to the three principal buildings are a fabulous array of outbuildings. One of which is directly opposite the Farmhouse and provides a further useful range of rooms, including an Estate Office, Wine Store, and a garden and machine store. There is a roadside Detached Barn with dimensions of over 62ft x 29ft, which again provides additional storage. Further outbuildings include a double barn stable with a further open barn.
This property has 35 acres of land.
Outside: The property is approached via one of two driveways. The gardens are truly impressive and have been well tended and include a variety of mature trees, shrubs and well-maintained borders. The grounds include ponds, a small stream, expanses of manicured lawns and woodland. The swimming pool is protected by the projected outbuilding from the Tythe Barn and forms a useful sun trap area. There is an all weather tennis court at the bottom of the formal gardens, which again is well protected and provides a delightful area in which to play. The grounds are of some 32 acres, including both pasture and woodland and are ring-fenced with no foot paths or rights of way over them.
The Farmhouse at Winkhurst Green occupies a truly delightful setting off a country lane, opposite the entrance to Bough Beech reservoir. Despite this idyllic semi-rural setting, Sevenoaks is but a short distance away providing local amenities serving all the usual day-to-day needs.
For the motorist, there is access to the major road routes but principally the A21, which is again within easy reach. For the commuter both Hildenborough and Sevenoaks offer a mainline service to London at Charing Cross and Cannon Street in about 30 minutes.
The area is renowned for the quality of schooling in both the private and state sectors. A number of notable private schools in the area include both Sevenoaks School and Tonbridge School. Kent is also home to the grammar school system and there are again a number of grammar schools in the area.
Leisure activities in the area include riding and walking in the surrounding countryside, golf, with a number of interesting courses in the area including Knole and the Wilderness golf club, sailing on Borough Beech reservoir and on the Kent and Sussex coast.
Directions: From Sevenoaks, continue in a southerly direction, turning right opposite Sevenoaks School into Oak Lane. Turn right over the Gracious Lane bridge and first right into Kippington Lane. Continue to the far end and bear left onto the B2042. Follow the road down through Ide Hill and turn left signed posted Winkhurst Green. Continue to follow the road around to the right and after a short distance, the property will be found on the left hand side, opposite Bough Beech reservoir.Read all
