Character charm meets contemporary living within an idyllic Weald location
IT’S seen as the most desired partnership within a family home – period rustic charm, coupled with a sleek contemporary finish. Many houses claim to have it, but few carry it off with such panache as Dale Farm House, a Grade II listed rural home which is currently being marketed through Savills Sevenoaks.
The highly picturesque Dale Farm House is as pretty as the setting in which it is located. Positioned in the village of Weald within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it benefits from outstanding far reaching views across the Kent countryside. However, despite its tranquil setting, Dale Farm House is only three miles from Sevenoaks town and its rail links to London.
The five bedroom, two bathroom property has been renovated and updated to create a seamless marriage of character features with highly versatile and modern living. Dale Farm House features a bespoke modern kitchen, sleek contemporary bathroom suites and minimalist cream plasterwork, which are offset by the wealth of original timbers which give the house its signature look. The kitchen in particular is a style high point of the property, with a vaulted ceiling, modern bespoke units, flagstone floors and granite work surfaces.
On the ground floor, an inglenook fireplace in the large drawing room creates a charming focal point, which is separated from the dining room by open stud work. The separate spacious family room, located across the hallway, is a delightful space with dual aspect windows and a door opening onto the gardens, which feature a large entertaining terrace with pergola.
Richard Smith of Savills Sevenoaks, who is marketing the property, said: “Dale Farm House offers truly flexible accommodation, for it includes a detached one bedroom annexe in its grounds. In addition, the second floor of the main house has been designed as a single large bedroom, which would be ideal for a teenager’s personal space, or even a study or craft room.”
Dale Farm House makes the most of its delightful rural location by offering something special for equestrians, too. Within the grounds are situated two stable blocks, with a total of five loose boxes and a tack / feed room. The property comes with a paddock, plus an additional 4.4 acres is available for purchase by separate arrangement, offering the opportunity to create a real horse lover’s hideaway.
Dale Farm House is being marketed by Savills Sevenoaks at a guide of £1.595 million. For more information, contact Richard Smith on 01732 789 700.
