18th century Kent country house

This fine, beautifully extended 18th century property comes with a coach house, lake and paddock

Stonehouse is a Grade II listed country house believed to date from the mid-18th century. The house has handsome stone elevations and sliding sash windows under a slate roof.

Substantially extended and remodelled in recent years, the property now provides over 5,000sq ft of living accommodation. Open fireplaces, attractive tiled floors, vaulted ceilings and French windows to the outdoor terrace are all features which add to the period charm of the house, while the first floor houses the master bedroom suite with its freestanding roll-top bath. The guest suite has a Jack and Jill bathroom; there are further three double bedrooms on this level. The second floor houses a further bedroom and a large bathroom with a corner bath – both rooms have charming exposed timbers.

Outside well-kept gardens surround the house. They are predominantly laid to lawn and there are also many apple trees. To the front is a good-sized pond bordered by pretty weeping willows and oaks. An attractive gazebo sits nearby.

The Coach House lies to the south and offers a workshop and storage, and has potential for conversion. The grass paddock is accessed from the top of the drive.

Stonehouse is located around half a mile south of the centre of Boxley in Kent, at the foot of the Downs. The village has an old church and a popular inn overlooking the green. Local shops are available at Penenden Heath, just half a mile away.
