Surrounded by lovely gardens
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.
