Property description



Little Singleton Farm is a handsome Grade II* farmhouse believed to date to 1480. Externally the upper floors are tile hung with decorative fish-scale detailing and timber framing is evident at the ground floor. Internally the house is full of beautiful period features and provides a home of great substance, with a wonderful feel to it. The picturesque traditional stables adjoining the house and the Kentish barn, present further opportunity.

The entrance hall, which has part panelled walls and a flagstone floor, leads into a spacious double aspect drawing room with an inglenook fireplace housing a wood-burning stove. A large window looks across the gardens to the front and provides good levels of light. Beyond this, a door leads to a sitting room which also has a fireplace and stove. A utility leads on to a bright, triple aspect garden room with full height windows. There is a ground floor shower room.

The beautiful beams that are found throughout the house are also evident in the dining room, where there is a fine dragon beam. Adjacent, to the end of the hall, is the farmhouse kitchen with Aga, flagstone floor and vaulted ceiling, providing a welcoming space for informal family meals. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot room leading to the garden.

Four good-sized bedrooms are accessed by two staircases. The master bedroom is en-suite and a second bathroom is Jack and Jill to the landing. Two of the bedrooms have large carved fireplaces and all have fantastic beams and wooden mullioned windows. A fifth bedroom and a bathroom are on the second floor.

Please note that the heating is Oil fired not LPG.

The property is situated in open countryside close to the villages of Great Chart and Singleton, which offer a selection of local amenities. Ashford offers a broader range of shopping, with excellent out of town shopping at the McArthurGlen Outlet centre. There are good state and independent schools in the area and the market town of Tenterden is nearby.

Despite its rural setting, the property has excellent transport links to London and the Continent with Ashford International offering High Speed trains to London St Pancras (from 37 minutes) as well as Eurostar services.

Little Singleton Farm is approached over a gravel drive with the farmhouse set behind a ragstone wall. Adjacent to the house are the delightful traditional farm buildings, including stables and a large detached Kentish barn, currently providing extensive storage but with great potential for ancillary accommodation subject to obtaining necessary consents.

To the front of the farmhouse an attractive walled garden contains mature roses, shrubs and trees bordering an open lawn facing the afternoon sun. A lawn to the rear of the house stretches down to a pond and a former tennis court. The house sits well within its grounds which are set out as paddocks.
