This clever conversion of a flint granary shows what a little imagination can do. Homes & Living took a look.
Now for sale is a stunning converted flint granary set among similar homes on a former working farm in a peaceful part of Aylesford.
A striking double-height, beamed hallway leads to a large sitting room with exposed beams, wood burning stove and double doors to garden.
From here, double doors head to a dining room.
The kitchen is modern, with integrated appliances, but is also sympathetically designed to suit the style of this rural, character property.
There are wooden work surfaces with inset ceramic sink and drainer, Hotpoint electric hob with stainless steel Bosch extractor hood over, integrated double oven, space for a fridge-freezer, microwave and integrated dishwasher.
From the kitchen, double doors lead to a raised decking area, perfect for entertaining on a warm evening.
There is also a downstairs cloakroom.
The house has three bedrooms. Two of them are on the first floor and they are both large rooms, with sloping ceilings and extensive eaves storage. Two bathrooms are also on the first floor.
The remaining bedroom is on the ground floor.
The attractive back garden is well tended with a fine lawn and a circular paved seating area. A water feature adds to the overall tranquility of this pretty plot.
The garage has automatic up-and-over door with power, light and pitched roof storage over.
There is gravel parking for at least two further vehicles.
The house is a mile from the centre of Aylesford. For golf enthusiasts, Cobtree Manor Park golf course is only a short distance away. Access to motorway links are less than a mile away.

I just fell in love with The Granary immediately I came to view. At first glance, it is neat and compact but once inside it is spacious and bright with lovely rooms, all with character.
It is such a welcoming home and one which is fabulous to share with friends and family.
Our family favourite is the sitting room. It captures all available light and has a lovely outlook to the garden.
On warm, summer days, we throw open the door wide and love to listen to the birdsong. However, in winter time, it is warm and cosy and is where we like to switch off away from the elements.
The pretty garden is beautifully private. The raised timber decking outside the kitchen provides a special area in which to survey the garden, or to enjoy relaxed meals. We also have another area set in the middle of the garden in which we can relax.
This has been a truly wonderful family home and we will miss many things, particularly its location, which contains a friendly sociable community who are not in the least bit intrusive, but are caring and welcoming.
