Old Tree Lane, Boughton Monchelsea, Maidstone
This very attractive detached country home is superbly located on the fringes of the lovely village of Boughton Monchelsea within a belt of countryside to the south of Maidstone.
The property itself is formed from the extensive conversion of a two roundel oast and attached barn. Remarkably, the barn has been externally re-modelled in an elegant Georgian style that is both rare and eye catching.
Internally the property is configured with five bedrooms served by three reception rooms, with a contemporary kitchen and conservatory. The bedrooms benefit from two en-suites plus a family bathroom. A further W.C. is located on the ground floor. This generous size home exudes character throughout. A very large and imposing fireplace acts as a talking point in the lounge and the exposed ragstone walls in the ground floor roundels are particularly striking.
The property sits within an overall plot of approximately 2/3rds of an acre. The gardens that predominantly arranged to the sides and rear are well arranged with expansive lawn areas, a paved patio plus shrubs, trees and flower borders. Beyond the rear garden in an enclosed grass area - large enough for a further building or a kick about or perhaps to rear small livestock.
Boughton Monchelsea is ideally placed. Schools - state, private and grammar are all available in the area. Commuting to London is very convenient. Mainlines services from Marden and Maidstone give a journey time to London of approximately an hour.
