  • Bedrooms: 5
A unique proposition, oast-style detached property in an idyllic rural location, a short distance from Chelsfield village and just 2 miles from the mainline station.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase this substantial 5 bedroom detached and characterful home.

3 Home Farm is located on a corner plot within this secluded and gated, private estate which comprises a small cluster of traditional farm-style properties. The development offers glimpses of the rural and wooded land around it. 3 Home Farm itself, together with the other properties on the development share ownership of approximately 70 acres of agricultural land which engulfs the development.

The development itself sits just outside Chelsfield village and was built to a high standard in 2003 by local developer Asprey Homes. The development was designed sympathetically to blend into the surrounding countryside.

This well-loved family home has been enjoyed and beautifully maintained over the years and there is further potential to fulfil individual requirements. 3 Home Farm is positioned for full enjoyment of the surrounding land and woodland beyond.

To the front of the property there is a large area for parking as well as a carport all of which benefit from external lighting. There is also a large lawn area which has been turfed with artificial grass in order to provide additional parking for particularly large gatherings.

Entering the property you are greeted by a welcoming and large hallway around which, the ground floor accommodation is arranged. There are two large reception rooms both of which have views on to the secluded rear garden. The largest reception room which is used by the current owners as the formal sitting room has a feature fireplace with gas stove and french doors leading to the rear terrace which wraps around the property.

Also off the hallway is access to the open plan kitchen, dining-living area. The kitchen was recently replaced and includes integrated dishwasher, Quooker tap, granite worktops and Falcon feature range oven. The kitchen area has aspects to the secluded side garden, rear garden and to the front of the property. This area really forms the heart of this home, providing access via french doors to the terrace at the rear of the property. Off the kitchen is a lobby and which leads in turn to a sizeable utility/boot room which features a large amount of built in storage, including full height integrated fridge and full height integrated freezer and microwave.

3 Home Farm is currently configured with 5 bedrooms all with en-suites. All of the bedrooms are spacious and roomy with plenty of storage and would provide ample accommodation for a growing family. A further attraction is the flexible upstairs space that uses the structure of the roof space of the two oast style buildings to dramatic effect to create stunning and unusual second floor en-suites to the master and second bedrooms, which really add to the sense of space the accommodation provides.

The gardens, which wrap around the property are surrounded by mature trees giving a real sense of seclusion. There is a generous rear terrace which is ideal for entertaining on warm summer evenings. The current owners have landscaped the garden to also provide outdoor lighting which can be enjoyed all year round. The garden also benefits from a computer controlled sprinkler and watering system served by a concealed 1000 gallon storage tank. There are a number of shed/outbuildings which have been installed by the current owner providing an enormous amount of external storage space. Whilst the garden itself extends to over 0.4 of an acre, there is a gated fence at the end of the garden leading to the wooded area beyond the property which comprises the communal land beyond.

The property also benefits from a fully monitored alarm and recently upgraded central heating system with Hive controls. All curtains and light fittings are included in the sale.

The current owners have lovingly maintained 3 Home Farm and spent many years at the property with their own family. This rare and unique opportunity to purchase this family home should not be missed. We recommend booking an appointment to view in order to fully appreciate the accommodation and lifestyle this property has to offer.
