Tucked away from view in the heart of the Wealden countryside, close to the picturesque village of Biddenden and sought after towns of Tenterden and Cranbrook, is a very well kept secret called Willow Barn. Located along a private lane, this unique 3 double bedroom oak framed home, converted in 2019/20 to exacting standards by the current owners, offers stylish accommodation and would now make the ideal home for a buyer wishing to move straight in and enjoy living there without having anything to do. The beautiful, spacious, open plan ground floor makes this house an ideal place for entertaining family and friends, and with three good size double bedrooms to the first floor, there is plenty of room to house them. Willow Barn is approached through electric entrance gates which lead onto a driveway where there is a good amount of parking. This property also benefits from a very private low maintenance garden and a large timber cabin which could serve any number of different purposes.

We understand that Bishopsden Road at the bottom of the lane is an adopted road and that the lane that leads up to the property is privately owned. The costs and upkeep of this are shared between the four properties that it services.
Set back behind electric gates, this property is approached over a driveway which gives plentiful parking to the front of the house. The very private, low maintenance garden, laid mainly to lawn with mature hedging and trees, surrounds the house on three sides and is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. A good size TIMBER CABIN, located to the side of the house at the rear, is the perfect garden retreat, play den, studio, workshop, home office or store. It could also be utilised for a small cottage business, subject of course to the necessary permissions. This cabin has a separate fuse box, numerous power points and is double glazed and fully insulated. There is also a timber shed which is large enough to take garden equipment and bikes etc.
