Idyllically positioned out of sight beyond a characterful Kentish ragstone wall, The Old Mill is enviably placed within the middle of its own enchanting gardens featuring historical ruins and the ancient River Len, providing a quite stunning setting to this unique and highly desirable family residence.

Step Inside

Offering a fine blend of period charm and contemporary elegance this beautiful home retains enormous character, appointed over three levels, currently configured with four/five bedrooms. A well considered and arranged ground floor affords a generous level of entertaining space with three reception rooms to include a sizeable drawing room with an exposed open brick fire place featuring inset log-burner and a remarkable series of stone framed and leaded light windows. A heavily beamed music/reading room offers access directly to a patio. A triple aspect dining room shares an open-plan relationship with a well equipped, bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of integrated appliances, solid oak work surfaces, Sandstone flooring and a walk-in pantry. In addition, a dedicated utility room further supports the kitchen whilst a boot room and downstairs cloakroom afford practicality and convenience.

First Floor

The Master Suite presents an air of luxury, exhibiting vaulted/beamed ceilings to the bedroom, contemporary en-suite facilities with a walk-in shower enclosure, plus a feature freestanding roll-top bathtub set upon ball and claw feet. Additionally, a dedicated dressing room compliments the suite perfectly. A contemporary family bathroom serves three further double bedrooms on the first floor, all providing fantastic views over the gardens.

Attic Room - Bedroom Five

A staircase from the first floor landing rises to a characterful attic room, providing a versatile space ideal for use as a guest room, office or gym.

Step Outside

The residence is enveloped by beautifully manicured gardens in-excess of 0.75 acres, affording delightful views from all aspects of the home with the ancient River Len and a ragstone wall predominantly forming the boarders. Lawns interspersed with mature specimen trees offer privacy whilst scattered beds prolifically well stocked with a range of shrubbery, herbaceous plants, grasses and flowers offer colour contrast. Perhaps most noteworthy, the ruins of an 18th Century Paper Mill, providing a quite stunning focal point to the grounds. A garden shed and wood store are also available.


Thought to have 17th Century origins, this elegant residence once served as workers cottages to the adjacent and original 10th Century fulling mill, which went on to become a paper mill in the 18th Century before finally closing in the 1820's. The principle residence takes its name, (The Old Mill) from this historical element, which was converted into a single dwelling in the early 1960's. The current owners purchased the property in 2001 and soon undertook a meticulous renovations program, culminating in a traditional oak framed double height extension, completed in 2007.

Approach & Parking

Reached via a secluded no-through lane, a five bar wooden gate gives way to a parking area sufficient for several vehicles whilst a garage with power and light provides shelter for a single vehicle. Leading on from the parking area, a driveway dressed in fine shingle come to rest at the foot of the house.


The wide ranging amenities of Maidstone and the surrounding villages are conveniently close. This region benefits from excellent schooling, with primary and secondary schools within easy reach. Private schools and a choice of grammar schools can all be found in and around Maidstone. Maidstone itself is Kent's county town and regionally accepted as being a hub for commerce and leisure, as well as offering a vast array of shopping and dining options,

Additionally, the property is ideally situated only a short distance from Bearsted and its village green which during the summer months plays host to all manner of events to include cricket matches, classic car shows, farmers markets and a music festival. The green is also served by well regarded pubs, restaurants and shops and the village has it's own 18 hole parkland golf course. Mainline Rail services offer convenient access to Ashford International, and to the Capital in around an hour whilst the M20 and M2 motorway networks enable additional access to London, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent coast, adding yet further practicality to this idyllic location
