Ad­dress: Cleve­lands, The Street, Be­nen­den Price: Of­fers in re­gion of £1.25 mil­lion Agent: Jack­son-Stops & Staff Cleve­lands is a Grade II listed vil­lage house with a one-bed­room an­nexe.

It over­looks the vil­lage green at Be­nen­den, one of the most de­sir­able vil­lages of the Ken­tish Weald. The house dates from the early 17th cen­tury and was sub­se­quently ex­tended, with Gothic re­vival in­flu­ences.

It has a mul­ti­tude of pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing oak beams, tim­bers and wide floor boards, dec­o­ra­tive fire­places, wood pan­elling and orig­i­nal win­dow shut­ters.

An in­ter­est­ing fea­ture is the work­ing set of house­maids bells which still hang in the kitchen.

There is also a com­pletely self­con­tained one-bed­room an­nexe which pro­vides in­come po­ten­tial or use­ful ad­di­tional space for guests.

The gar­dens and grounds amount to about an acre, un­usual for a house in the cen­tre of a vil­lage. Mainly lawn, the grounds also have paved and brick path­ways. Th­ese lead around the house, pass­ing through climber clad per­go­las and trel­lises.

They in­clude clipped box hedg­ing and top­i­ary, beds and bor­ders filled with masses of flow­er­ing shrubs, herba­ceous plants and rose va­ri­eties gen­er­at­ing colour and in­ter­est through­out the sea­sons.

There is also a pro­duc­tive or­chard.

Cleve­lands is within walk­ing dis­tance of shops and pubs. It is in­side the highly re­garded Cran­brook School catch­ment area and close to Be­nen­den School.
