Property of the month - Berenden Park, High Halden

Hard-to-please family? This £3m family home in the heart of the Weald should keep everyone happy, from the horse enthusiast to the film buff
There are a lot of rambling country houses in Kent, but the older they are, the more often you'll have to keep opening your chequebook. A new roof here, some plastering there - it all adds up, so there's definitely something to be said for buying a new place.
And, as Berenden Park in High Halden proves, there's no need to skimp on the luxuries. It may have only four bedrooms, but with a swimming pool complex, a games room and full equestrian facilities outside, you won't be spending much time in your bedroom.
For guests, there's a whole separate lodge to stay in, and if you happen to have a car collection - a really big car collection - there's more garaging space than Brands Hatch.
Set within 55 acres of secluded gardens, the views across the Kent countryside are second to none and a four-mile drive will see you in the historic Cinque Port of Tenterden.
For the technology enthusiast, the whole building is wired for sound, video and security cameras, including a Bang and Olufsen sound system and air conditioning, making it easy to take (remote) control of your surroundings.
A perfect family home, it might be an idea to invest in some walkie talkies to keep track of everyone - it's not a small place.
Berenden Park has a guide price of 3m. For more information, contact Jackson Stops and Staff, tel: 01580 720000
