How hall grew from estate lodge
Address: Lunsford Hall, Lunsford Lane, Larkfield Price: £1.25 million to £1.5 million Agent: Fine & Country
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.
