    4 bedroom detached house for sale

    This delightful unlisted residence could benefit from a little upgrading, but is a charming and sympathetic conversion offering well-proportioned, and light accommodation, with a wealth of beams and timbers throughout, (some restricted in height), feature areas of herringbone brick and timber on internal walls, wooden skirtings, ‘old’ pine internal doors with brass furniture, and an open fireplace. The spacious entrance hall doubles up as a flexible reception area, the triple aspect sitting room has an Inglenook styled open fireplace, from the kitchen/breakfast room you can thoughtfully enter the utility room, or the roundel both of which have access to the outside. Many of the rooms are at least double aspect affording great light and therefore taking full advantage of the surrounding country views. Set in delightful gardens with a separate access into the orchard/paddock area to the rear. Benefiting from a mixture of wooden framed sealed unit double glazed windows and Upvc windows, mains gas central heating (with the exception of the conservatory), and its own private drainage system. Viewing is highly recommended in order to appreciate what is being offered.


    Approached over a private driveway, tucked away, yet not isolated, being located within a convenient drive of numerous and varied facilities and amenities. Staplehurst Village (about 2.5 miles) offers some local facilities including a primary school, nurseries, a Sainsburys, and a mainline station with frequent direct services to London (the journey taking just under an hour), and Ashford International. Being less than 4 miles from the pretty village of Marden, again offering local facilities, and the main line to London, and less than a 20-minute drive of Maidstone, the county Town of Kent. Therefore, there is plenty of choice for excellent schooling, access to major road networks, and to many local attractions including a number of vineyards, castles and historic woodland walks.


    From the centre of Cranbrook proceed down the High Street into Stone Street, and bear left out of the Town merging with the Angley Road. At the crossroads continue straight over towards Staplehurst. Continue for about 7.8 miles, and as you approach a slight right-hand bend turn left into the private drive, (identified by our for-sale board), continue and the Oasthouse will be found on your left-hand side.
