Jetwells is a substantial Grade II listed Queen Anne property on the outskirts of Goudhurst in Kent. The many period features include natural wood floors, high celings, ornate plasterwork, shutters, period fireplaces, panelling and exposed timber beams.

The house has excellent proportions, and comprises five reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with doors out to the terrace, pantry, laundry room, master bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom plus five further bedrooms, two en suite, a family bathroom, as well as three bedrooms and a living room on the second floor. There is also a conservatory and a swimming pool, a cellar, triple garage and an outdoor heated swimming pool and delightful formal gardens.

These gardens are wonderful, with the front area laid mainly to lawn, interspersed with mature trees and shrubs including what is supposed to be the oldest azalea in Kent. To the rear there is an extensive York stone terrace and courtyard with ‘Chilstone’ balustrade and fountain. The swimming pool has a mosaic tiled finish and steps from here lead down to a further lawned area with views across to the North Downs and the paddock beyond. There is also a formal rose garden beside a yew hedge and a timber greenhouse. The gardens and grounds amount to around five acres in total.
