Walters Farm is set-back from the High Street behind electric gates in the heart of the picturesque village of Brenchley. Lying about seven miles to the east of Tunbridge Wells, Brenchley is surrounded by beautiful countryside in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village offers a post office, doctors’ surgery and dispensary, along with a fine church, primary school, small bar/coffee shop and a village club.
For more comprehensive shopping, Paddock Wood has a Waitrose supermarket conveniently located near the mainline station and several other shops, whilst Tunbridge Wells, offers a wide choice of amenities including two theatres, a multiplex cinema, health clubs, restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels.
Matfield village (about 1.2 miles) offers two pubs for food, with the Poet aimed at high end dining.
There are many highly regarded schools in the area, both state and private, including Brenchley and Horsmonden village primary schools, the Grammar Schools in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Maidstone, Bethany school in Goudhurst, St Ronans and Marlbrough House in Hawkhurst, the Schools at Somerhill, Holmewood House, Kent College for girls, Tonbridge School for Boys, Mayfield School for Girls and co-education at Sevenoaks.
Paddock Wood station has mainline services to London Charing Cross via London Bridge and Waterloo East (and Cannon Street), with services from about 53 minutes. The nearby A21 links directly to the M25 London orbital motorway to the north and thereby a national motorway network, ideal for Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and the Eurostar tunnel which is about 28 miles to the east.
Constructed about eleven years ago as a bespoke project, this five bedroom detached family house, with a studio annexe, has been very attractively designed and finished both inside and out, including the landscaping. The fine exterior elevations are finished in oak cladding and brickwork; the windows and doors are triple glazed with painted woodwork.
The interior also enjoys a quality presentation throughout, with a number of impressive design details, incorporating oak and tiled flooring in places, along with extensive oak joinery, including the doors and stairs, skirting boards and architraves.
In addition, the house has a modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, four shower rooms and one bathroom for the five bedrooms. The main reception and the principal bedroom suite above both enjoy direct southerly views out across the property’s landholding. The annexe is similarly well finished.
Outside, there is extensive car parking behind the automatic gates with CCTV and maintained alarm system as an additional security measure.
The landscaped mature gardens and grounds are an exceptional feature, with plenty of terracing, accessed from the key rooms, a good area of formal lawn and planting and about 4.9 acres of more informal paddock, which incorporates a number of nice trees, including a prominent oak, as well as an extensive grass meadow.
