Country houses for sale

A stunning Georgian house with two acres of park-like gardens and an impressive orangery, in a leafy part of Kent

Looking at Fairseat House from the outside you know it's going to be good — and it is, with beautifully preserved period features, airy, dual aspect rooms and a garden that would make anyone green with envy.

Grade II-listed, Georgian and in handsome red brick festooned with greenery, Fairseat House covers a sizeable 8,511sq ft, incorporating eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and five reception rooms. The house is currently on the market via Jackson-Stops at a guide price of £4.75 million.

In the village of Fairseat, just under 10 miles from Sevenoaks, window seats, fireplaces and sash windows contrast well with an orangery, added by current owners, which has limestone floors, a woodburner and doors leading outside.

Further modernity can be found in the state-of-the-art kitchen and 60,000-litre rainwater capture and storage system. Two expired planning permissions — for an extra two bedrooms in the attic and a garage conversion — could perhaps be revived.

Meanwhile, park-like lawns wrap around the house, bordered with rhododendrons, beeches, a cedar of Lebanon and an orchard, with space for a picture-perfect swimming pool and tennis court.
