A beautiful and stylish Grade II listed former farmhouse with 5 - 6 bedrooms and the most beautifully flexible accommodation set within lovely gardens at the edge of this sought after village.
Birdsend Farmhouse is a unique and extremely special Grade II listed former farmhouse positioned within the most glorious gardens of 0.6 acres which back onto open fields. The original property dates back to 17th century and was extended in the third quarter of the 19th century. It is the most attractive house to all elevations with interesting features throughout to its original structure and era, including part exposed timber beams and immaculate Flemish brick work. The house has a wonderfull ambience and is presented for sale in the most immaculate order with beautiful period features throughout illustrating its heritage. Its traditional layout has a sense of symmetry creating accommodation that is manageable and flows with ease.
Entrance is gained through a reception hall with the drawing room to one side and a formal dining room to the other, both rooms have high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and a light atmosphere with the dining room enjoying views over the side garden through a feature bay window. To the rear of the house, overlooking the garden, is a further sitting room with doors opening to outside and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with an excellent range of units, an Aga and summer oven with hob.
Adjacent is a utility/boot room with direct rear access. From here, a hallway opens to a bedroom and shower room, lending itself to an ideal guest or au pair quarter, independent of the bedroom space and with the addition of a small sitting room or study area. This area would also make an excellent home office away from the main house. There is an extremely useful cellar which is accessed from the kitchen.
On the first floor are four excellent double bedrooms, all enjoying peaceful garden views to each elevation and with a large bathroom and separate shower room to share. A further flight of stairs leads to two further double bedrooms on the second floor. There is access the large boarded attic which is currently used for storage, but subject to the relevant permissions, could be used as further accommodation.
Occupying a private position, at the edge of this lovely village, Birdsend Farmhouse is accessed via a long driveway, behind wooden gates, leading to parking for several cars and the oak framed double carport with storage above. Tucked away at the rear of the property is a useful garden shed and a firewood shed. The grounds are immaculate, mainly laid to areas of lawn bordered by hedging and mature trees with a pathway running from the garage around to the boxed raised hedges and flower boarders at the front of the house. This entire area is beautifully maintained and provides the perfect balance to a home of this size and the most tranquil of settings overlooking open countryside.
