Leeds, nr Maidstone 150,000

Old Caring is believed to date

from the 14th century and is listed Grade II. Originally a Kentish Hall House, with a traditional timber-framed construction, interesting features include a dragon beam in

the drawing room ceiling and a Tudor-era, stone-built chimney

in the drawing room.

The house has been refurbished throughout, with a new kitchen

and bathrooms, and one of the

cellars has been converted into a versatile family room.

Leeds Castle is about a mile to the east and the house stands back from

a quiet rural lane in a secluded setting, with good views of the distant North Downs from within its grounds, which include a heated swimming pool and adjacent timber pool house.
