Located in a tucked away position in the hamlet of Smallhythe, surrounded by beautiful countryside and with far reaching views, Salters Barn is everything you could wish for in a truly rural retreat, and yet is within easy reach of the village of Wittersham and the historic town of Tenterden. Unlisted, this 4 bedroom home, set in circa 0.65 acres of south facing grounds, not only has the quintessential charm of a Kentish barn, but for those with more modernist tastes, there is also a unique Scandi / mid-century feel, which can only be appreciated when viewed in person. This flexible property also offers much in the way of potential (stp) and there is certainly the opportunity for dual occupancy or income generation. But it is the stunning location which really takes your breath away. Situated in a set back position along a quiet lane that you could easily miss if you didn't know it was there, surrounded by unspoilt National Trust grazing land, this property truly is a one-off gem.

Salters Barn sits in an elevated position along a private lane and is approached over a gravel driveway where there is ample parking for any number of cars. The south facing garden, which we understand extends to circa 0.65 acres (tbc), is at the front of the house and is very much all about the wildlife and setting in which it sits. Not only is it a nature lover's haven, but it has spectacular views across the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty towards Wittersham which is on the opposite ridge. This would certainly be a dream for anyone wanting an oasis of privacy and relaxation.
