Stonehouse is a Grade II listed house dating back to the mid-18th century with handsome stone elevations with sliding sash windows. Remodelled and extended in recent years, the house now provides over 5,000sq ft of accommodation.
The main entrance leads to the drawing room with its attractively tiled floor and staircase to the first floor. French windows lead to the conservatory and next to the drawing room is the billiard room which has an open fireplace and polished floorboards – from this room the breakfast kitchen is reached. Access to the cellar is from the original hallway and a study and a sitting room are also found off this room.
The master suite is located on the first floor and a comfortable guest bedroom suite. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor and the second floor has a further bedroom and a large bathroom with corner bath.

Outside the well-kept gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with a wide variety of trees including apple trees, and to the front is a good-sized pond bordered by weeping willows and oaks. To the south is the coach house which could be converted to provide further accommodation. The field is approximately 15 acres and the woodland beyond has four rides accessible by four-wheel drive vehicles. A fenced area of the woodland is currently used by a local Scout group at a rent of £10 per annum.
Stonehouse lies about half a mile south of the centre of Boxley near Maidstone (two miles) in Kent. The village has an historic church and popular Inn overlooking the village green. A range of local shops are available at Penenden Heath, a further half mile away.
The guide price is £1.5m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01227 451 123 or visit www.strurrandparker.co.uk.
