6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Harts House, Boughton Monchelsea

3 6 3

Guide Price £1,000,000 - £1,250,000. Grade II* Listed Tudor Hall House. Stunning 2 acre plot with lake. Six bedrooms. Three reception rooms. Double garage block plus additional single garage. Planning permission granted for ground floor extension. London by train approx. 1 hr (via Marden).

A simply stunning example of a Grade II* listed hall house believed to have 16th Century origins. The property retains enormous character and is now configured as a six bedroom family home within a two acre plot that includes formal gardens and its own picturesque lake.

The property sits within a beautiful enclave of homes known as the Boughton Quarries. This area provided much of the stone that ultimately was used in the construction of many of London's historic buildings including Westminster Abbey and The Houses of Parliament. The quarries, which date from Roman times have long since ceased operation, with their legacy being this very exclusive residential area.

The home is approached on foot via a gated pathway that leads to the main front door, or via the rear pathway that leads from the double garage block to the side and rear of the home. The grounds of the property are themselves considered amongst the finest in the region. The formal Elizabethan inspired rear garden is planted to clipped box hedging. Beyond a large lawn area gently falls away towards a delightful lake which is fed via a small stream at its eastern end and disperses at the western end by a beautiful water fall. The far side of the lake is banked and planted as light woodland.

Boughton Quarries is found to the south of Maidstone and is ideally positioned. There is a choice of mainline stations that provide access to several London stations. Typical journey times from Marden station are around 1 hour. The motorway network is also conveniently close, with the M20 offering easy access to the capital and channel ports. For those requiring high speed train journeys to the capital or the continent, Ashford International rail terminus is only 21 miles distant.

GROUNDS, GARDENS AND LAKE The property sits on an overall plot of approximately 2 acres. To the rear of the house is sited an Elizabethan inspired boxed hedged garden. Paved pathways, paved seating and gravelled pathways define this area. Fine lawns lead down to a lake with a small island and wooden bridge. Beyond the lake a small waterfall carries the lake water to a stream that leaves the property at its most westerly boundary. The property has heavy ragstone walled boundaries to its eastern and northerly sides with natural banking and light woodland to the south and west. An ancient well is located close to the entrance and is still easily accessed via a stone staircase. Three ragstone built outbuildings are located to the side of the main house. They provide useful storage and house the gas fired boiler which serves the property. 

PARKING The property benefits from a double garage block with power and light, one powered door and a double wooden door. A further single garage with power, light and a powered door, is separately located south of the house. A storage bay below the garage provides space for a boat (for lake use). 

DIRECTIONS The property is located on the lower part of Atkins Hill (between Bottlescrew Hill & The Maltings). Viewers should enter the property via the front gate.
