Have your say

Approached via a private driveway passing the kitchen terraced garden and three yew arches finally terminating to a large parking area suitable for numerous vehicles. Throughout the property there are many notable features and an abundance of beautiful exposed joinery which includes the feature principal staircase, wall panelling and internal doors with ancient carvings.

There are two large reception rooms both with lovely open fireplaces and stunning ceiling cornicing, the drawing room directly overlooks the private enclosed gardens. An inner hall passes the music area leading to a large and recently re-fitted contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with ample space for a table and chairs. This ground floor accommodation is in addition to the home office/study, cloakroom and sizeable walk in under stairs store, formerly the laundry room. A magnificent turning staircase with two half landings leads to the spacious split level landing affords access to the principal bedroom suite. This impressive light and bright room enjoys a lovely aspect over the gardens and grounds, ornate fireplace and a door through to a large en-suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and door returning to the landing. There are two further double bedrooms and a guest shower room and WC, a substantial laundry room which could be used as an additional bedroom/reception room. An oak door from the principal landing leads to an area considered most suitable to be arranged as a separate internal suite.

The gardens and grounds provide another feature of this property, principally set to an expanse of lawn, interspersed with a complete array of mature and specimen trees to include various fruit trees and a splendid old yew tree. There is a recently re-furbished enclosed tennis court, a lovely sun terrace with various grass and stone pathways leading around the gardens. Immediately abutting the house is a further terrace considered ideal for garden entertaining/eating alfresco. The gardens are either hedged, fenced or wall enclosed, sloping gently down to the River Ouse. Inevitably, this description can only briefly describe this impressive and capacious family house and therefore, as agents, we wholeheartedly recommend an appointment to visit the “North Wing” Malling Deanery.
