If you're house hunting at the moment (and can afford it), this impressive Georgian-style country property, sitting within its own carefully manicured gardens and grounds, is on the market for £5.5m.
Hookwood Farm at Shipbourne, which is up for sale with Jackson-Stops' Sevenoaks branch, is approached by a gravel drive leading to a stone pillared entrance and wrought iron gates.
Built by its present owners and completed in 2013, it comes complete with a handmade kitchen and elegant marble fireplaces and flooring.
In the kitchen/breakfast room, which has French doors to the east terrace, you'll find an island unit and appliances including two Agas - one electric one gas - as well as two fridges and dishwashers, a Miele coffee machine and a wine fridge.
It has seven generously-proportioned bedrooms, six bathrooms and four reception rooms, and, if you were thinking of working from home, there's two broadband lines, five landlines and 16 telephones.
Outside, there is a barn, stables and, if you were worried something was missing - even a chicken run with coop.
There is a kitchen garden, along with parkland grounds and a lake with an island and waterfall feeding into a smaller pond, while planting includes magnolias and more than 200 varieties of rhododendrons.
The owners have also recently acquired the land beyond Mote Stream known as Woodcock Bottom extending to just under four acres, which has a paddock with stables, a spinney and remains of a Victorian pumping station. The property also comes with planning permission for a swimming pool and fishpond.
The property in Puttenden Road, Shipbourne, is on the market for £5,500,000. Find out more here.
