2 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Marley Lane, Kingston

Driving down a leafy lane on the outskirts of Kingston village you come upon the charming Marley House nestling in the midst of 2.019 acres of grounds including woodlands and surrounded by the most stunning countryside. There are superb views across the rolling hills of the Elham Valley and it is no surprise that this is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The delightful brick and flint house was originally built in 1510, so is full of character and attractive features reflecting the era. However it is not Grade II listed or in a Conservation area so is not affected by the usual restrictions on extending or developing a property of this calibre, age and individuality.

Once through the attractive wood front door into the welcoming hall with its period floor tiling you can feel the warmth emanating from the house and this is further enhanced as you walk into the lovely sitting room with its brick fireplace and vast bay window and glazed door to the garden, providing fabulous rural views.  There is a charming light dining room for formal occasions with double aspect windows and brick surround fireplace and the country style kitchen includes a built in double oven while the adjacent breakfast room with its wood burning stove provides a relaxing and informal family space. Upstairs you will find a family bathroom with a corner bath and two delightful double bedrooms including the master. This has patio doors to a splendid half moon balcony where you can sit over your morning coffee enjoying the stunning views.

Outside is full of fascinating surprises. By the large crazy paved driveway with its impressive specimen trees providing a lovely canopy is a garage and a large storage shed as well as a door through to the woodland where you will find three further outbuildings. At the other end of the property there is a paddock interspersed with some delightful mature trees as well as a charming circular flint folly and nearby is another large outbuilding that used to be stables. Outside the house there is a patio area for al fresco dining, a further storage shed and a cool wine store.

“We moved here 20 years ago because we fell in love with the position and the view as well as the peace and tranquility. Although it will be sad to move we feel it is time for us to start a new phase in our lives. Although we are out in the country there is a pleasant village community and the delightful Black Robin pub and we are very near Barham and Bridge for day to day necessities.There is the opportunity to extend the property as there is plenty of space available. Indeed, the previous owners obtained planning permission to extend over the kitchen but while that planning has lapsed it should be possible to replace or expand it for anyone looking to extend the property. If you enjoy walking or have a youngster with as pony in the paddock there are some lovely walks and bridleways in neighbouring Covet and Covert woods while Broome Park is not far away for golfing enthusiasts.Barham is a very friendly village with a village hall that offers a variety of activities. There is an excellent pub/restaurant nearby and a well respected village school as well as a post office and a useful village shop run by volunteers that sells everything you need from light bulbs to specialist wines and homemade bread to fresh meat. The village has an active tennis and bowls club and there is a cricket club in the nearby village of Bridge where there are also a variety of shops including a... Read more
