Vendor Interview Located on the north side of Farningham in the Sevenoaks District of Kent, this wonderful Grade II listed four-storey Georgian town house is steeped in history. Thought to be built in the late 1700s on the foundations of two Elizabethan cottages, the house shows wonderful signs of age through a range of period features, including Queen Anne doors which were verified by their unusual hinges and generous dimensions. During the thirty-seven years owner Stella has lived at Saddlers House she has amassed quite a collection of clay pipes excavated whilst tending the garden. ‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the garden, which is wonderfully secluded and private – it’s been made even more pleasurable by finding little nuggets of history buried in the earth. I’ve found it to be a very peaceful place to live, however if you want entertainment the village is a lively place with an excellent village primary school, church activities, theatrical companies
