A spectacular detached barn, converted in 2009 to a particularly high standard and situated in a wonderfully rural setting within a working farm. The conversion seamless combines all the natural features of a barn, such as stunning vaulted ceilings, tall, floor to ceiling windows and beautiful exposed beams with an extensive use of glass, oak and slate to create an exceptionally light and contemporary interior.
Furthermore, the property also benefits from modern construction techniques, such as high quality insulation, double glazed windows and doors, an integrated sound system and underfloor heating throughout via an energy efficient air source heating system.
A solid oak front door opens into a spectacular reception hall and open study area, with a slate floor, exposed brickwork and beams and a highly contemporary oak and glass split staircase which rises to the first floor.
To the right of the reception hall there are two double bedrooms (both with built in wardrobes) and a beautiful family bathroom. This has been fitted with high quality sanitary ware and finished with rich, travertine tiling.
To the left of the reception hall there is a pleasant master bedroom with two built in wardrobes and a well appointed en suite shower room, a further double bedroom (with direct access to a private courtyard garden) and a useful utility room.
On the first floor, there are two vast open plan living spaces beneath an impressive vaulted ceiling, overlooking the reception hall below.
The sitting area has a lovely oak floor, a contemporary freestanding wood burning stove and a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking farmland, whilst the kitchen and dining area has been fitted with an excellent range of high gloss contemporary units set around white corian work surfaces, integrated appliances, a large island and breakfast bar and a slate tiled floor.
Between these two spaces there is a useful and well appointed wash room.
The whole property is beautifully presented throughout and offers generous and well appointed accommodation combined with a quirky 'upside down' layout, which gives some exceptional views to the living accommodation on the first floor.
The barn sits within a plot which is just under a quarter of an acre. To the left of the barn, there is a double garage and carport approached via a gravelled driveway, which provides parking for numerous cars.
A timber five bar gate leads to the rear garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn. A gate leads to a further courtyard garden with flagstone paving and tall flint walls which provide an excellent degree of privacy.
The Kent Barn enjoys a wonderfully rural setting surrounded by a working farm in the peaceful village of Stalisfield, yet just 5 miles from the bustling market town of Faversham. The parish consists of just 82 dwellings which are scattered over a wide area, however the majority are centred around Stalisfield Green. This beautiful village green hosts the annual village fete and is also home to The Plough Inn, a Grade ll Listed 14th century village pub and restaurant which only serves Kentish beers from hand pumps, alongside great food. Infact, The Plough Inn was awarded 'Kent's Best Pub Award' in 2009.
The village is also served by The Church Of Saint Mary (a lovely 13th century church) and a superb village hall which was newly built in 2014. This hosts numerous clubs, societies and events for this active local community. Stalisfield is predominantly surrounded by lovely farmland and woodland and sits high on the North Downs, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst much of Stalisfield Green is protected as a conservation area, making this an ideal area for anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits.
The nearby village of Charing (three miles) offers an excellent range of local services, including a main street with numerous shops and businesses, a primary school and a mainline railway station. Primary schools can also be found in the nearby villages of Selling, Sheldwich, Eastling, Challock and Chilham, whilst Selling and Chilham also have mainline railway stations.
The nearby town of Faversham offers a far wider range of shopping, leisure and recreational amenities, including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a museum and numerous good pubs and restaurants. The town is served by a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which being the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham also has a mainline station with a high speed link to London St Pancras in just over an hour.
