Seller Insight    Kenneth and Margarida, the present owners, were thrilled to find the dilapidated barn and cowshed in the glorious Kent countryside. They explain, We had been looking for a conversion property, and the agricultural barn that dated from the nineteenth century was perfect. We immediately visualised its great potential as an exciting project.

We are in an idyllic setting, surrounded by fields and trees, yet have access to historic Rochester, fifteen minutes away. London, by rail, is under an hour’s journey, with nearby Ebbsfleet providing links to the continent. Motorways take you to the coastal towns and into London. Four miles away, Hoo village has shops for everyday needs, a primary school, restaurants and locally there are many villages, and any number of glorious country walks. We have access to the best of town and country living.

We caringly dismantled the old barn as it could not be saved but kept the same footprint and built it in keeping with the original exterior features and working to the highest specification, Fenn Barn is now a superb modern home, with a great luxury of space and comfort. Each room has generous windows which flood the house with natural light creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere throughout and allowing views into the garden and across the fields. The views from the two first floor bedrooms, range across the landscape to The River Medway, and it is a wonderful view to start each day.

Fenn Barn is very much a family home. The kitchen is where we cook and enjoy down time, and has been the scene of many chatty meals with family and friends. It is perfect in the summer when you can open the bi fold doors onto the patio, and invite the outside in. The spacious lounge has an inglenook and with a fire crackling in the log burner, is a perfect winter refuge: and it also opens onto a large second patio. The small gatehouse has a kitchenette and toilet and is the perfect home office whilst there is ample parking for up to eight cars.

The garden wraps around the house, and is a joyous and colourful mix of lawn, flowers, and shrubs, where you can follow the sun round the garden through the day. We have lovely memories of our wedding reception in the garden, barbecues and warm evenings when we enjoy a glass of wine in our calm oasis, and all you hear are the birds who nest in the birdboxes.

We are relocating to Portugal but will miss absolutely everything about Fenn Barn. It has given us a perfect lifestyle and we take away many very happy memories.
