5 bed Detached House
House Plus Annexe, Barming, Maidstone
This charming yet substantial detached family home sits enviably within an approximate plot size of 0.5 acres and affords an abundance of character in the highly desirable location of Barming.
The property itself dates back to circa 1615 and once served as the farmhouse to Court Lodge Farm. The main residence benefits from five-six bedrooms served by an en-suite and family bathroom, with two reception rooms that are complimented by a well positioned kitchen/breakfast room which overlooks the charming garden.
Additionally, the property further benefits from a spacious, self contained two bedroom annexe/cottage, with a large lounge/dining room and direct access to the gardens via a well appointed kitchen which further increases the desirability of this wonderful home.
The gardens are arranged into separate areas which affords the ability to select a location based on your mood. The main garden area, mainly laid to lawn, is ideal for playing children or entertaining family and guests. In addition a secluded pavilion offers various facilities to include a changing room, W.C. shower and sauna. There is also a bar/kitchenette and sizeable dinning area with sliding doors out onto a terrace which in turn serves a heated swimming pool. A courtyard provides the perfect spot to relax and unwind whilst those interested in producing their own vegetables can do so in the dedicated area provided.
