Located in a secluded position that very few people are aware of, this unique property is perfect for those looking for a tranquil retreat, while still needing to work at home or wanting to be close to good local amenities, schools and transport systems. The house itself is truly charming, providing just under 2,400 sq ft of beautifully presented, versatile living space that would suit any number of different buyers, including those looking for dual-occupancy. There is also the added advantage of a newly renovated self-contained Annexe, which could be used for additional living or work space or as a holiday let or Airbnb, subject to any necessary consents. The property is approached through electric gates which lead onto a sweeping driveway where there is parking for a number of vehicles in front of the triple garage. This property also benefits from being within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area and a short drive away from the mainline station at Headcorn.

Juniper Hill is set in a very private, tucked away location. Electric gates lead onto a sweeping driveway which leads down to the main house, garaging and annexe, where there is parking and turning for any number of vehicles. The lovely garden, which surrounds the house on two sides, slopes down gently to the woodland which not only provides spectacular views, but is also a haven for wildlife and wild flowers including swathes of snow drops, daffodils and bluebells in winter and spring. In the warmer months, the garden has gentle paths mowed through its long summer grasses, providing an oasis of calm which is completely in keeping with the character and feel of the property, and you can imagine long hot summer days where the children run free along these and through the woods, and you don't see them until tea time. Perfect.
OUTBUILDINGS: There is a Summer House, useful Woodstore with adjacent Mower Shed
Stairs to the side of the triple garage give access to the newly renovated self-contained annexe which sits above it. This wonderful bonus space has a large open plan living area, contemporary kitchen and shower room, and while it is at present being used as a home office, it could serve a number of different functions. The fact that the property is situated in a highly desirable tourist area means that the annexe could provide a possible commercial opportunity for any new owner as a Holiday Let or Airbnb, subject of course to any necessary permissions.
