Full property description
Clock Tower Barn is an impressive four bedroom home with a wealth of original features, exposed beams, stable doors, vaulted ceilings, and the magnificent clock tower, which stands proudly on top of this stunning barn. The property enjoys a splendid rural setting, in a small, exclusive gated community within the spectacular grounds of Norton Court, yet within easy reach of the market town of Faversham.
A beautiful entrance through a handsome glazed front door brings you to the elevated reception hall.
On the ground floor, stylish wood effect Amtico flooring has been laid throughout this spectacular open plan living space. There is a hidden cloakroom just off the dining room, which has been cleverly designed and offers ample storage space for coats and shoes.
The kitchen has been fitted to a very high standard by a local joiner, modern appliances have been beautifully integrated and finished with a mix of granite and wood block work surfaces, which offer a traditional feel to this characterful space.
Next to the dining room, there is the fourth bedroom, which could equally be used as playroom or a snug, has a delightful cosy feel and is a wonderful addition to the downstairs space.
Steps lead up into the triple aspect sitting room, with a stunning vaulted ceiling and fine views over the gardens, whilst the contemporary wood burner allows more warmth and ambience to fill this impressive space.
On the first floor, a glass galleried landing leads to a further three double bedrooms, where the character continues with exposed beams, traditionally styled radiators and oak doors. There is a well-appointed family bathroom, with a beautiful modern suite, including a double ended bath and a separate shower enclosure. The main bedroom at the end of the corridor has an elegant en-suite bathroom, built-in wardrobes and is a wonderful space to retreat to.
The property is set within an extremely private and secluded plot of 0.23 acres and is approached via a sweeping gravelled driveway, which provides ample parking for several cars. This leads to a detached double garage which has ample storage but also has the potential (subject to planning) to be a wonderful annexe or large workshop.
The garden can be reached by several rooms, and is mainly laid to lawn, with well-stocked beds and borders. Adjacent to the barn, there is a full width patio area, with a brick built barabeque and pizza oven. To the rear of barn, there is another lovely paved patio area, where you will find a log store. The summer house is currently being used a superb home office, with heating, air conditioning and the most wonderful views of the garden. The garden has been beautifully manicured and enjoys splendid views over fields beyond, which provide a tremendous sense of privacy and makes this an ideal place to entertain.
