5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Pound Lane, Molash,

5 5 6 2 Land Size: 3 acres

Driving down the long private road to Oathill Farm you can begin to feel a tremor of excitement as to what you will find once you turn in through the entrance – and the property will certainly live up to your expectations. Built on the hillside surrounded by beautifully manicured grounds, woodland and 3.366 acres of farmland, this impressive split level 1970s extended property is stunning and is just the place if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful rural setting. It is currently divided into three separate living areas – a three bedroom main house, a one bedroom annex and a one bedroom ground floor apartment, so is ideal for families with elderly relatives and/or adult children wanting their own space or perhaps someone with live in staff, but it could also be a large family home.

Walking up to the upper ground floor entrance the first thing you notice is the attractive balcony running along the side of the house extension where you can sit and admire the views and, once through the front door, you can begin to appreciate the flexibility and versatility of the accommodation available. Off to the right from the hallway is a large and charming annex that includes a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a contemporary bathroom and fitted kitchen as well as a large bright lounge/diner with dual aspect patio doors and bi-folding doors to the main terrace and garden.

Passing the entrance to the upper ground floor annex you walk into the heart of the house – the main kitchen/family room. It includes a large range cooker, American fridge freezer and dishwasher together with a peninsular work surface and seating area, patio doors to the garden and access to the dining area that is ideal for more formal occasions. This leads through an archway to the main sitting area with its fireplace and wood burning stove as well as vast patio doors to a balcony overlooking the countryside. There is also a very useful study, cloakroom and utility room on this floor. The first floor has a modern family bathroom and three double bedrooms with stunning rural views including the attractive master with en suite facilities and a wall of fitted cupboards and a second bedroom with an en suite shower.

The lower ground floor is a totally separate and very attractive spacious apartment and can be accessed independently via the patio doors to the sitting area or from the main house. It includes fabulous light and bright sitting & dining areas with a veritable wall of floor to ceiling windows and the patio doors that lead to a private terrace and greenhouse. There is an archway through to a well fitted kitchen and a double bedroom with an en suite double shower.

Outside the large patio is ideal for al fresco dining and barbecues and it is also where you can sit and watch the fish in the pond or shelter in the gazebo if the weather is inclement. There are steps up to the main lawn and summer house while at the front of the house there is masses of space for off road parking and a driveway to the double garage. In addition there is a large poly tunnel, a substantial wooden cabin that makes a great party room as well as a large workshop and a further storage shed. Plus further adjacent land is available for purchase on request. From the grounds you can walk through the woods with the dogs or alongside the fields.

“Our parents moved here in 1998 when it was still a riding stables but that was closed down a few years later and we came here more recently to look after our Dad in his declining years. However now that he is no longer with us we have decided that it is too big for our future needs and we are all looking to downsize. As it is such a wonderful place we had considered a variety of business ventures that could be run from here but have decided that it would be better for new owners to look at the various options available and come in with fresh energy to make the most of all the facilities.

We love the views, the tranquility and the fact we can walk for miles through woodland and the countryside. The house is wonderful for entertaining whether it is indoors, outside or in the cabin as we have plenty of parking space and it doesn’t matter if there is any noise as we don’t have neighbours to worry about. We have the George pub and restaurant within walking distance as well as the village hall and the Halfway House pub isn’t too far away. Molash is very closely aligned to the nearby village of Challock with its post office and newsagent as well as an excellent primary school that is rated Outstanding by Ofsted. We are also virtually equidistant between Ashford, Canterbury and Faversham for road and rail services to and from London or the Continent via the Channel Tunnel or ferries from Dover.

While the property offers wonderful extended family accommodation it also provides plenty of opportunities for developing a variety of business activities. Although the stables were demolished and replaced by the current outbuildings it would still be possible to build a new stable block and use the adjacent paddock for your own horse or for livery. Additional land is available, so you can expand to suit your needs, as at one time there were 30 horses at Oathill Farm. You could develop a new equestrian centre incorporating pony trekking as you can ride for miles through the woods and around the countryside and never have to go on the roads. Also as there is plenty of accommodation you could include residential equestrian activities.

If you were not interested in horses you could develop a kennels and cattery as this place has the great advantage of not having close neighbours to complain about dogs barking. However if animals were not of interest it would make a marvellous venue for weddings, parties or outdoor team building events. You could always set up a small business – perhaps an artist’s studio or something similar or run it as a Bed and Breakfast, guest house, market garden or even holiday lets. The potential opportunities are endless if you have the vision and the enthusiasm.”
