It's not often that a property stops us in our tracks, but that's just what Gould Farm, near the village of Frittenden in Kent, has done.
Picture-perfect Gould Farm is a simply sublime property in the heart of the Kent countryside, which finds itself currently on the market via Phillips & Stubbs with a guide price of £2.25 million.
Old English roses and established yews are scattered about the well-kept garden at the medieval hall house, with a timbered front elevation similarly adorned in yellow blooms.
Grade II listed, with 16th- and 18th-century additions, unusual architectural features include original mullion windows, a medieval oak screen, jettied cross wing and a crown post roof.
The property comes with about 2¾ acres of gardens and paddock including a separate home office in an old brick bakehouse, and adorns a tiny hamlet formerly known as The Brook, just outside the village of Frittenden, nine miles from Tenterden.
A separate stables and tractor store could be converted for residential use, subject to consent.
