This beautiful period property is situated just 1 mile away from the village of Nettlestead in a fabulous rural setting with far-reaching countryside views inside the Green Belt. The house is approached at the end of a long private drive, in a small farm hamlet of just a handful of properties. The Granary sits within 3 acres of its own land and really does need to be viewed to appreciate all that is on offer.

The property is arranged over 2 floors, and has a wonderful flow of accommodation, with a large dine-in kitchen, 4/5 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2/3 reception rooms. Each room has its own charm: the entrance hall is light and airy thanks to the large windows which were once the main doors to the barn, which flows into a kitchen with an Aga and enough space to seat large parties of up to 20 for dinner. the sitting room provides a cosy sanctuary, with a large inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. Upstairs, the vaulted master bedroom has views over the fields to the west.

The main house flanks a charming, south facing cottage garden, full of mature plants, and most of the accommodation has easy access to this peaceful space. To the north of the garden is an open cart barn which is currently used as a log and garden store but which has planning permission for residential use should the new owners require more living space.

The annexe, which sits to the side of the property, has its own dedicated entrance, but could easily be incorporated into the main house, depending on the new owner’s requirements. It has been converted and extended by the current owners with great success, and now provides additional spacious accommodation allowing the entire property to cater for multi-generational living. There is a large vaulted sitting room, with French doors to the private walled gardens that the annexe enjoys. In addition, the annexe has a dine-in kitchen with a further set of French doors, a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe and a second bedroom. The annexe flanks an utterly charming walled garden, which has a large area of composite decking, mature shrubs and a fish pond.

The Granary is set within a rural landscape just north of the village of Nettlestead with its charming 13th century Church. A mile further north is the village of Wateringbury, which has a Post Office, General Store and train station. The bustling town of Paddock Wood is just 5 miles away and has a comprehensive range of amenities including Waitrose, Barsley's Department Store, bakers, butchers, banking facilities, pharmacy, cafes, restaurants, dentists, doctors, vets and mainline station, with fast and frequent trains to London. The larger towns of Maidstone and Tonbridge are both 8 miles away and both offer excellent shopping facilities. The vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells with its excellent commercial and leisure facilities can be reached within 25 minutes and the impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is within 30 minutes' drive. Gatwick can be reached in 45 minutes. If you want to escape to the lovely south coast, then the beaches can be reached within an hour.
