Horseshoe Farm, Ruckinge


Three of the best Kent homes for sale this month

Horseshoe Farm offers great flexibility for a single or extended family, or the possibility of extra income from its cottage and lodge. A large summer house and

decked area in the gardens provide excellent outdoor living and entertaining space and the whole property enjoys a delightful and secluded woodland setting.

Approached via a gravel carriage drive through double five-bar gates which lead to the garage and parking for several cars, the outbuilding and woodland can be accessed via a separate track next to the house.

A timber porch with leaded windows and brick steps leads to a part-glazed front door which opens into the entrance hall of the main house. From here stairs rise to the first floor and to the right is the study overlooking the front of the property.

The kitchen/breakfast room is set to the rear and has an oak floor, deep butler sink and

a large island unit. From the breakfast area a door leads to an ample utility room, and double-glazed doors lead into a sitting room with a wood-burning stove and dining room to the rear.

Also on the ground floor is a library and a sitting room with open fireplace, a bedroom and bathroom, cloakroom and sauna.

Stairs to the first floor lead to the en suite master bedroom with a decked balcony overlooking the gardens, pond and paddocks towards the woodland beyond.

There is a family bathroom and at the other end of the house is a large double bedroom next to a shower room. Two further bedrooms complete the accommodation in this part of the property.
