Homes & Living
Now on the market with Fine & Country is The Tyning, a large family home at Harrietsham.
Double wooden gates and a sweeping gravel driveway lead to the modern property, which is in a good rural position in this sought-after village.
The bright and spacious interior has been extremely well maintained by the owners who have lived in the house since it was built 15 years ago.
Centred around an oak-floored hallway, the property has substantial and flexible living accommodation, mainly on ground floor level.
The contemporary kitchen/ breakfast room has granite work surfaces, mood lighting, a range of integrated appliances and an adjoining utility room. The floor is Italian stone tiles.
French windows lead out to a pitched roof conservatory, which overlooks the five-acre grounds and is equipped with automatic skylight and under-floor heating. Double doors from here lead on to a raised decked seating area, perfect for enjoying a lazy summer evening or entertaining guests.
The 21ft sitting room has double doors and windows looking out to the back and a feature fireplace with marble hearth. There is also a separate dining room.
Five large bedrooms are downstairs, with two bathrooms. Three bedrooms, with eaves storage and Velux windows are in the roof, with one bathroom.
The house has a detached double garage and there is a further timber-built outbuilding.
This area is very well served by primary schools in both Harrietsham and Lenham, a secondary school in Lenham, plus grammar and private schools in and around Maidstone and Ashford.
