Sur­rounded by lovely gar­dens

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMES NEWS -

If you’ve had enough of the neigh­bours, this three-bed­room house could be per­fect.

On the mar­ket with the Cran­brook of­fice of Fine & Coun­try, Park Lodge is en­cir­cled by its own 1.5 acre grounds in­clud­ing rose gar­den and pad­dock, so you re­ally will be king or queen of all that you sur­vey.

A five-bar gate and sweep­ing gravel drive­way leads to a large park­ing area and this ex­cep­tion­ally pretty house.

The house has been ren­o­vated through­out, but still has pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing leaded light win­dows, beams, open fire­places and elm par­quet floors.

The 24ft kitchen/break­fast room is light and bright with far-reach­ing coun­try­side views. There are win­dows to the side and back and french doors to the ter­race. The room has hand-made kitchen units with match­ing butcher’s block tops and a dou­ble but­ler sink. There is a range cooker and an in­te­grated dish­washer and fridge. The kitchen opens into a snug, with log burner and to a boot room, with ex­ter­nal door. The draw­ing and din­ing room both have bay win­dows and fire­places and there is a util­ity.

The three bed­rooms are all on the first floor and are all dou­bles. While the only bath­room is on the ground floor, it is a stun­ning room, with wal­nut floor pan­elling and floors, slip­per bath made from cop­per and sep­a­rate shower. Plan­ning per­mis­sion has ex­isted in the past to cre­ate an ex­ten­sion, in­clud­ing a first floor bath­room.

Per­mis­sion has also ex­isted in the past to build a two-bay car barn with cloak­room and a room above. Orig­i­nal plans for this work are still avail­able from the ven­dor.

Pretty gar­dens en­cir­cle the prop­erty with a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ar­eas in­clud­ing a decked pa­tio area, long paved ter­race, rose gar­den, and an abun­dance of flow­ers and shrubs. The sep­a­rate pad­dock has a veg­etable gar­den to one side.

The agent is seek­ing of­fers in the re­gion of £750,000 for the prop­erty, which is at Brick Kiln Lane, on the out­skirts of Horsmon­den.

Nearby is Pad­dock Wood, with its main­line train sta­tion into Lon­don.

There is a good choice of schools nearby and the prop­erty falls into the catch­ment area for pop­u­lar Cran­brook School.
