On top of the North Downs, this former village pub comes with original 18th-century fireplaces, exposed beams and eight acres of land.
Once known as the Windmill Inn, it originally took its name from a neighbouring smock mill, now long gone.
While there’s still plenty of character, the property at Throwley Forstal near Faversham is now a comfortable four-bedroom home, with the two large pub rooms at the front now a dining room and an extended sitting room, each with a fireplace and linked by double doors.
An L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room is at the back of the house and the house has a downstairs cloakroom.
There’s still fun to be had in the old function room at the back, which makes a great games room or party venue. And instead of barrels, the old beer cellar now houses an oil-fired boiler providing the central heating and hot water.
On the first floor the master bedroom has an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
There is driveway parking as well as a garage, workshop and some other outbuildings.
At the back is a courtyard, lawns, mature trees and a kitchen garden with greenhouse. Grazing land is fenced and has a separate access, making the total plot of eight acres.
Paul Willmott of selling agent Charles Bainbridge, says: “Throwley Forstal is a picturesque village surrounded by delightful farmland and countryside.”
The house is priced at £925,000.
