A unique opportunity to acquire one of Westerham's most historic homes, sensitively modernised to cater for 21st century living with aplomb and offering the perfect solution for versatile or multigenerational living by virtue of a superb, accompanying, detached two bedroom annexe.

Listed Grade II*, this authentic Hall House boasts 15th century origins with later additions over successive centuries, to include striking enhancements by the renowned Arts & Crafts architect Baillie Scott, who added a first floor gallery to the central, double height, vaulted 'Hall' to create a spectacularly theatrical entertaining space.

Immaculately presented throughout, the property exudes character at every turn, boasting a wealth of authentic features to include exposed timbers, beams and brickwork, fireplaces, linen fold oak panelling and thumb latch doors, quarry tiled and polished oak floors and leaded light windows.

Externally, the house is attractively cocooned within established gardens to the south and west encompassing swathes of level lawn, a myriad of mature planting and several rare species of trees, together with an all-weather tennis court and acre paddock, complete with twin stable and feed store.
