This im­pos­ing seven-bed­room home was orig­i­nally built as an es­tate lodge in about 1750 but be­came known as Lunsford Hall fol­low­ing sig­nif­i­cant ex­ten­sion in the 1870s.

To­day the fam­ily home is set in a pri­vate cul-de-sac on the edge of a res­i­den­tial area at Lark­field within grounds of ap­prox­i­mately one acre. The gar­dens are fringed by the wood­lands sur­round­ing one of the Ley­bourne Lakes.

The beau­ti­fully main­tained house is within a few min­utes’ drive of West Malling and close to Junc­tion 4 of the M20.

Twin oak en­trance doors open into a hall­way with fire­place and che­quer­board mar­ble floor­ing. Three large re­cep­tion rooms and a study all have fire­places. The kitchen/break­fast room has a glazed door to the gar­den and a sash win­dow at the back. There is a ce­ramic but­ler sink and gran­ite work­tops. A cen­tral is­land has a dual fuel range cooker. There is a built-in larder cup­board.

The laun­dry room has a door to the gar­den and there is a base­ment of­fice and wine cel­lars.

One of seven bed­rooms, the mas­ter bed­room has a range of fit­ted wardrobes and a con­cealed en­trance to an en suite with twin wash hand basins. There is a free stand­ing roll top bath, bidet and high level cis­tern toi­let.

Lunsford Hall sits in an acre of ter­races, lawns and a fenced pad­dock. Re­cently a sum­mer­house has been added and there is a dou­ble garage block. There are re­mote con­trolled en­trance gates that lead to a pri­vate drive­way pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the main house and three neigh­bour­ing homes.
