Kentish Express Ashford & District
Space, charm and Kentish history
Seventeenth century charm comes with sweeping lawns, views of farmland and modern fittings with this country home.
The Grade II listed country house in Cranbrook, which is on the market for £995,000, packs in beams aplenty, but also has ample room for a modern family.
Extended in more recent times, the generous and versatile accommodation with good ceiling heights has a whopping 2,600 sq ft of space, including four reception rooms and four bedrooms, many with views over neighbouring countryside.
Period features such as fine oak beams and open fireplaces are complemented by practical modern additions including underfloor heating, and a custom-made kitchen which has two ovens among its range of appliances. Weavers is surrounded by greenery with box hedges at the front enclosing colourful summer flowering beds, plus a gravel driveway and parking for a number of vehicles, while at the back there are sweeping lawns, covering almost an acre.
Set in the catchment area for Cranbrook School, the property also has Dulwich Preparatory School 350 yards away, with other schools close by including Benenden Primary School, Marlborough House at Hawkhurst and Benenden Girls School.
It is also just five miles to Staplehurst Station, with Ashford International 16 miles away.
