Although this property has much kerb appeal to the front, it is the stunning architect designed bespoke glazed extension to the back of the property which has the real “wow” factor. Added by the current vendors, this wonderfully spacious and light kitchen / dining / family room with its panoramic views of the garden, is ideal for modern living and truly the heart of this beautiful home. Explore further and you will find a welcoming entrance hall, a large sitting room with open fire, utility and cloakroom, and to the first floor, a generous family bathroom and three good size bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms. Outside, what was originally the garage, has been converted into a bonus studio space, consisting of an open plan living area, separate shower room and mezzanine storage area. This useful additional outbuilding has in the past been used for Bed and Breakfast accommodation, however, more recently it has served as guest accommodation to the main house. For anyone looking to work from home, it would certainly make an ideal home office and could also provide potential as an annexe, subject of course to any necessary consents. The lovely enclosed south east facing garden to the rear is landscaped and very well maintained, as is the garden to the front which borders the studio and extensive driveway. Set well back, this unique property would suit anyone looking to live a more peaceful life while still benefitting from having all the many amenities that the coveted town of Tenterden has to offer on the doorstep. Internal viewing is highly recommended.
A storm porch leads you to the front door, which opens into a welcoming hallway that forms the centre of the house. Stairs to first floor with large cupboard below. Room for free standing furniture. Doors to sitting room, cloakroom and kitchen / dining / family room.
A deceptively generous cloakroom with WC, counter top basin with storage below, and large built-in cupboard ideal for storing coats, shoes and bags.
The spacious, elegant sitting room, with its working open fire, has a grand but warm feel. A window to the front and patio doors to the rear flood it with light and provide views of the front and rear gardens. The patio doors also give access to the lovely patio terrace beyond. This room would certainly be large enough to support a lounge area to one end, and study, library or music area to the other if desired.
Open plan Kitchen / Dining / Family room
This stunning, incredibly spacious open plan room is truly the heart of this home. To the front is the well designed, partially hidden kitchen area which has a range of shaker style cream units, drawers and cupboards with granite worktops, giving this space a fresh, modern feel. The high end appliances include an AEG double oven with warming drawer below, AEG induction hob with extractor above. Integrated dishwasher and fridge. Double inset sink with drainer, mixer tap and macerator. The rest of this amazing space has plenty of built-in storage and is flexible in its layout to be used in a number of different ways. The star of the show is most definitely the vaulted south east facing extension to the back with its full height glazed windows, which make this whole space beautifully light and give wonderful views over the pretty garden beyond. This room, with its lead roof is ideal for being cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An external door to the side opens onto the patio.
Handily situated next to the kitchen, this useful utility room has fitted wall and base units for further storage, worktop and sink with mixer tap. Space and plumbing for washing machine and American style fridge / freezer. Boiler. Door to rear garden.

This wonderful bonus space has an open plan living area, shower room and mezzanine storage level, and could serve a number of different functions. The fact that the property is situated in a highly desirable tourist area means that in the past, it has been run as a successful B&B, but it could also provide additional accommodation / bedroom space for family members or guests or serve as a home office, hobby room or art studio. NB: There is a separate boiler for the studio.
Set back in a tucked away position, this property has much kerb appeal. To the front, there is a landscaped garden and two driveways providing off-street parking either side of the studio. A gate at the side of the house takes you through to a good size, enclosed, south east facing garden which has been beautifully landscaped. A paved patio terrace with electric awning at the back of the house has been strategically placed to take full advantage of the sun. For those needing more shade, there is a pretty timber summerhouse which sits under the beautiful oak tree, from which the house gets its name. Various sheds either side of the house provide additional storage.
