Property description

Barnfold is an idyllic country home, believed to date back to the 1930's with later extensions. The house has been refurbished and modernised to a high standard by the current owners, ideal for modern family living. The accommodation extends to over 5,000 sq.ft. Arranged over three floors, the space is well balanced between formal and informal living. The rooms feature impressive fire places, exposed beams and leadlight windows. The principle reception rooms comprise a dining room with french doors to the rear terrace, double aspect drawing room and the orangery, all of which enjoy views out to the rear of the property. Also, on the ground floor is the snug.

The large Edmonson designed open plan kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a central work island and fitted Gaggenau appliances. The kitchen is filled with light with two sets of french doors leading out to the rear garden terrace and the Orangery which creates wonderful additional living space. Situated next to the kitchen is the utility room and boiler room.

Oriented to benefit from the southern far-reaching views the first floor has excellent bedroom accommodation, with a generous-sized triple aspect principal bedroom suite, complete with vaulted beamed ceiling, bathroom and dressing room, with views over the garden. There are three further bedrooms with contemporary en suites.

In addition to the main house there is a detached two-storey building currently used as an office on the ground floor and studio on the first floor, ideal for those working from home. The space is flexible and could be used for a number of uses.

The immaculate gardens and grounds complement the house extremely well. Barnfold is approached via an impressive gated gravel carriage driveway that leads to the front of the house with a large lawn, parking area and Roundwood of Mayfield triple bay open garage and double enclosed garage, both with power and lighting.
Wrapping around the house is a paved terrace that connects the garden to the house and provides an excellent setting for al fresco dining enjoying the stunning uninterrupted southern views over the Medway Valley. From the terrace steps lead down through the planted beds to the glorious gardens and grounds with specimen trees, rose beds, a kitchen garden and Victorian style greenhouse.

Beyond the formal gardens is a paddock which is separated by parkland railings and stretches down to the river bank, providing both frontage and fishing rights on the River Medway. There is also an area of woodland. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 6.34 acres.
