A 19th century farmhouse is on the market complete with planning permission for an additional barn conversion.
Bottle Farm, in 9.5 acres at Hart Hill, Charing, has a guide price of £895,000. A proper old farmhouse, it is detached and set in the beautiful North Downs with lovely views. Gardens surround the house and there are eight acres of fields.
The main house has four bedrooms and is spacious and versatile and, in addition, there is planning permission to convert a two-storey barn into a two- bedroom annexe. This would have a large first floor open plan kitchen and living area, with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor. There would be an additional first floor reception room. It would be great for relatives staying over, but would also have potential as holiday lets.
Arriving at the main farmhouse, there is a large hallway, which leads off right into a 28ft lounge/dining room with working fire, two large bay windows and stripped wooden floors.
The hallway also leads into the kitchen, which is fitted with good quality wooden units with granite work surfaces. The room has good views over the gardens.
A 19ft family room leads into a conservatory and the property has a downstairs cloakroom and a cellar reached through a concealed trap door.
At one end of the ground floor is a room presently used as a fourth bedroom, which has its own en-suite.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, all of which have exceptional views and the family bathroom.
Outside is a real gardener’s dream. There are numerous fruit trees including apple, pear, damson and walnut among many other trees and shrubs.
There is also a pergola and terrace area for outdoor entertaining.
To one side of the house are fields of about eight acres.
There is a large agricultural barn which planning permission dictates would need to be demolished once the barn conversion has taken place.
Andrew Neal of selling agent, Andrew & Co said: “Bottle Farm is nestled on the North Downs and enjoys fabulous countryside views.
