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

Ad­dress: Barn Cot­tage, Rye Road, Sandhurst, near Cran­brook Price: £600k-£625k Agent: Fine & Coun­try Now avail­able to buy for the first time in 20 years, this weath­er­boarded barn has plenty of sur­prises hid­ing be­hind its front door.

The five-bed­room de­tached home has a bright, beau­ti­ful kitchen, a large din­ing space with doors lead­ing out to the gar­den as well as com­fort­able lounge with lovely beams, solid wooden floor­ing and fea­ture fire­places.

“This is a Tardis of a house,” says the cur­rent owner.

“From the out­side the house looks cosy and bi­joux, but when you get in­side it is re­ally rather sprawl­ing, with much more space than it would seem from the front.”

The five bed­rooms are in a unique ar­range­ment ser­viced by a bath­room and shower room en­sur­ing that both your family and guests will be com­fort­able.

The gar­den has also been lov­ingly looked af­ter and now in­cor­po­rates a lawn, seat­ing ar­eas, flower beds, a gar­den shed and even a chil­dren’s sum­mer house. Af­ter mov­ing in dur­ing the late 1990s, the own­ers set about an ex­ten­sive restora­tion project to show off the barn’s full po­ten­tial whilst re­tain­ing its orig­i­nal charm.

Work in­cluded retil­ing the roof, re­plac­ing the weath­er­board­ing and lev­el­ling and re-lay­ing the down­stairs floor.

For the past three years the prop­erty has pro­vided a suc­cess­ful hol­i­day let­ting busi­ness, pop­u­lar with vis­i­tors who have re­turned time af­ter time.

“Ev­ery­one who comes here loves the warmth of the place,” added the owner.

Barn Cot­tage is in Sandhurst, one of the Weald’s most charm­ing vil­lages as well as the Cran­brook School catch­ment area.
