- Larkfield £1,300,000
Offering more than 5,000 sq ft of living accommodation over four floors, this elegant family home has origins dating back to 1750 and is now predominantly Victorian in its styling, having been remodelled and extended in 1877. It has six/seven double bedrooms, (one is currently being used as a dressing room), with luxurious en-suite and family bathrooms, four reception rooms plus a wine cellar, office and gym housed within the basement. More recently the current owners have remodelled the home to a very high standard, blending original period features with contemporary enhancements. Lunsford Hall sits within a one-acre plot of terraces, lawns and a fenced paddock. There is a lovely summer house (with a kitchen) that could easily be adapted for use as a home office, a studio or an annexe, subject to relevant planning permission.

A large entrance hallway leads through to a living room with feature fireplace and doors out to the rear garden and a second reception room, which could double as a dining room. The well-equipped kitchen has the benefit of a utility room. On the first floor, two of the four double bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms.

- Hadlow £1,600,000
This lovely family home, which forms one half of a six-roundel oast, has been owned by the current vendors for the past 35 years. Back then, the property had a dozen different rooms but only three bedrooms. The top floor was completely unconverted but showed a wealth of potential, which has now been fully realised, creating a spacious games room with two bedroom suites. Generous reception rooms include a dining room leading to an office suite with shower room and the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted into the roundel. A second reception room has a wood-burning stove and its own bar. The large garden boasts an ornamental pond water feature, an outdoor heated pool and barbecue area. There are two detached brick and tiled garage buildings.
