THE PROPERTY

A wonderful unlisted period farmhouse with ancillary accommodation and outbuildings amid over 30 acres of land, set in a peaceful rural enclave Little Boy Court is located in a most delightful setting along a no through lane on the outskirts of, but in close proximity to, Headcorn village and all the amenities that it offers including the main line station with direct links to London and coastal stations. Built in the mid 19th century with later additions built around thirty years ago, the house is a traditional brick constructed dwelling with white weather boarding under Kent peg tiles. The accommodation has many traditional features in place; inglenook fireplaces, farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Aga, wooden latch doors, tiled flooring throughout most of the ground floor and a storm porch side entrance. On the ground floor the cosy drawing room spans the full width of the property with triple aspect views whilst the addition of a conservatory garden room with flagstone flooring gives direct access to the garden through double French doors. On the first floor is a good sized master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and 4 further bedrooms, family bathroom and an additional bathroom which could be reconfigured to provide a sizeable en suite to the master bedroom. The gardens and grounds are a real feature of this property. Sitting amongst approximately 30.8 acres the immediate garden is mainly laid to lawn with pockets of informal planting and is bordered by mature trees, hedging and pasture land. A self contained bijou two bedroom converted oast and barn, which has provided rental income in the form of holiday lets over the years, is located across from the main house within its own pocket of fenced garden. An additional unconverted unlisted barn, currently used for garden and general storage, could provide further ancillary accommodation subject to any necessary planning consent(s). A summerhouse situated directly next to the house is currently being used as an office/craft studio but provides the ability for a number of uses.
