Farmhouse with trees galore
Address: Smiths Hill House, Smiths Hill, West Farleigh, near Maidstone Guide price: £1.195m Agent: Lambert & Foster
Open the five-bar gate to find the large sunny gardens that wrap around this substantial five-bedroom character farmhouse.
Buyers will love the mature maple, ash and pine trees at this detached property, which comes with a ground floor annexe.
The front door opens into an entrance porch, leading into an entrance hall and the kitchen/ breakfast room has an oil-fired Aga set into a chimney recess. There is also a pantry.
The drawing room and dining room have exposed timbers and beams and both have inglenook fireplaces with woodburning stoves. There is a study and downstairs cloakroom.
The one-bedroom ground floor annexe has a door leading from the kitchen and also has its own access from the garden.
On the first floor is a large galleried landing with doors to five double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.
All the bedrooms have views over the grounds and have built-in wardrobes.
There is an unconverted barn and store which links to the main house. The agent believes this space has great potential for redevelopment.
The garden has an open south facing aspect, with lawns wrapping around the property with a scattering of mature trees.
The nearest mainline railway station at Barming is less than five miles away.
The property is on the market with no forward chain.
