Crowbourne Farm is a stunning Grade II listed former farmhouse with mid-17th century origins and a later Victorian extension. The house is exceptionally presented throughout, including the majority of outbuildings which have been refurbished during the current ownership.
The property has a wonderful feel due to a combination of large light reception rooms with high ceilings and period features, and more intimate rooms for those cosy winter evenings. The drawing and dining rooms, overlooking the formal gardens, are both elegant rooms at the front of the house. The beautiful bespoke Tom Howley kitchen, utility and boot room are at the heart of the house with a modern traditional feel. The kitchen leads into the breakfast and family rooms, the latter with a large inglenook fireplace.
The principal bedroom, with a bay window overlooking the lake and grounds, has a dressing room and large ensuite bathroom. There is a guest suite with sitting room and en-suite, plus two further spacious bedrooms and an immaculate family bathroom. Two rooms on the second floor offer further flexible accommodation.
Sitting centrally within its land the property benefits from stunning panoramic rural views, particularly across the valley towards the picturesque Horsmonden church.
There are two cottages which provide excellent ancillary accommodation and are both beautifully presented.
The Guest Cottage comprises a vaulted sitting room with a mezzanine to one end and Tom Howley kitchenette, bedroom and shower room.
The self-contained Cart Lodge Cottage, with a private garden and terrace has captivating views, is currently used as a successful holiday let (occupancy governed as per planning consent ref. TW00/02441/ful).
Further outbuildings include a studio (with potential for home office), barn, garden store, workshop and quadruple car port.
Gardens and grounds
Crowbourne Farm is approached from a quiet country lane via period iron electric gates that open to a sweeping gravel drive which in turn leads to the generous parking to the front and side of the house, the open bay garaging, other buildings and separate rear driveway.
The formal gardens are beautifully maintained with large expanses of level lawns, a wide variety of mature shrubs, trees, herbaceous borders, rose beds and York stone terraces.
Hidden to the south east is an Astro Turf Tennis Court and pavilion. Beyond are areas of orchard, wild flower meadow and paddock that lead to an idyllic woodland and large lake with pontoon and boat house. The lake is a haven for wildlife with ducks, fish and vegetation with paths leading around it, and a rustic bridge to a small island.
To the north of the property there are further paddocks and stables with a very smart chicken and geese enclosure.
