15th cen­tury delight in the Square

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

With large room sizes and an ex­cep­tional set­ting, this beau­ti­fully kept four-storey home is a rare treat.

The grade II listed house, at The Square, Len­ham, has three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

Packed with char­ac­ter, it is on the books of es­tate agent Pe­riod Homes with Si­mon Miller, with a guide price of £665,000 and is an ab­so­lute must for a Jan­uary view­ing.

From the front door, a hall­way leads to the 15ft din­ing room and 18ft sit­ting room. The 19ft kitchen/ break­fast room is at the back of the house and has gran­ite work­tops and ce­ramic sink. Built-in Siemens ap­pli­ances in­clude a fridge/freezer, wash­ing ma­chine and dish­washer.

The kitchen/break­fast room leads out to the large and shel­tered court­yard gar­den. Steps lead down to a large cel­lar.

A 21ft master bed­room with en suite is on the first floor, to­gether with a large land­ing area and fam­ily bath­room.

The two fur­ther bed­rooms are on the top floor and both have slop­ing ceil­ings. The house has a de­tached garage.

Martin Ran­dall, of the agent’s Len­ham of­fice says: “This lovely 15th cen­tury prop­erty en­joys gen­er­ous liv­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion on all floors, plus a large cel­lar. From most win­dows there are views of the church, manor house, the glo­ri­ous Kent coun­try­side and Len­ham Square.

“There is a wealth of char­ac­ter fea­tures, in­clud­ing a dragon beam and orig­i­nal stone and brick in­glenook fire­place in the din­ing room, a fur­ther in­glenook fire­place with wood burner in the sit­ting room and ex­posed tim­bers through­out.”

Me­dieval Len­ham is on the south­ern edge of the North Downs, half­way be­tween Maid­stone and Ash­ford. This pic­turesque vil­lage in­cludes shops, post of­fice, com­mu­nity cen­tre, pubs, restau­rants, schools, a doc­tors’ surgery, a lo­cal su­per­mar­ket, a beau­ti­ful grade I listed rag­stone and flint church and the Glebe Pond (a source of the River Stour).

There is an abun­dance of foot­paths along the North Downs and the Pil­grims Way, many of which start from the church­yard op­po­site the house.

The main­line sta­tion is half a mile away and there is a good bus ser­vice.
