Grey Barn is a substantial Grade II listed Kentish property dating back to the 19th century, which was converted in 1990. The living spaces are extremely generous, and include a superb dining hall with a large floor-to-ceiling window and double-height vaulted ceiling; the drawing room is over 20ft square and enjoys pleasant views out over the gardens, while the kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted, and benefits from an Aga.

Upstairs are four bedrooms on the first floor – the master suite has its own staircase leading to a bathroom and dressing room – while the second floor has a fifth bedroom which completes the 3,600+ sq ft of interior accommodation.
