PERIOD HOME IN RUAL LOCATION BUT STILL CLOSE MAJOR ROAD LINKS.
This period house dating from the 1800's is full of character and steeped in history, it is widely believed that the house was originally two cottages that were used by the land workers and assistants of Evelyn Boscawen, the 6th Viscount of Falmouth.
In 1845 the Viscount married, and as such he had access to Mereworth Castle in Kent which he transformed into a large and successful stud, breeding Thoroughbred horses, and winning many classic races. He originally used the pseudonym Mr Valentine when he first started to race horses.
With gardens of approx one acre (TBV). The property includes 4 double bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with a utility room and offers so much more.
The current owners have made it a lovely family home that they have enjoyed for almost 40 years. The private drive serves this and two other properties set around a courtyard owned by this property. There is a small garden area to one side which has high hedging for complete privacy. The majority of the garden is to the rear with a large terrace across the rear of the property opening to an acre of lawns, mature plants, trees and hedging.
The property also benefits from additional rural grazing land at the rear of the garden which has separate road access and can also be bought from the vendors via separate negotiations.
