It is accessible to Canterbury, Ashford and Maidstone, yet very peacefully positioned sufficiently far from the motorways to be untroubled by the associated noise that affects much of Kent.Fine period houses that have been carefully maintained are rarely offered for sale, and fewer still sit so well within their own carefully tended grounds.Foxenden Manor retains many period features, and has well-arranged accommodation. The two principal reception rooms interconnect, and one is used as a billiard room.Adjacent is the dining room, set in the oldest part of the house which dates from 1604. The kitchen/breakfast room has extensive timbers and an Aga, as well as ample space for a table. It has been well fitted and provides a superb family space at the heart of the house. Immediately outside is the generous terrace, which enjoys lovely views over the gardens.The first floor has five bedrooms, the principal bedroom having an en-suite bathroom. Like the rest of the house, period features abound here.The gardens are a special feature of this fine family home. They are divided by mature hedges, and variously provide extensive lawns, tranquil seating areas, paddocks, a mature pond and orchards, with an avenue of trees leading away from the house. There are some long distant views towards the sea. The tennis court has been refurbished recently and the swimming pool is neatly set close to the house and the garage building, which has a generous suite of rooms beside and above the double garage. This gives a kitchen and changing area close at hand to the pool which has a large terrace around it. The garage building is considered suitable for a variety of purposes and has been rented in recent years.To the front of the house is the well-appointed barn, which is arranged to provide a bedroom, kitchen/living room and a shower room. It is of charming brick and flint elevations beneath a tiled roof. Also in the grounds is a well-appointed cabin/lodge, which offers useful additional accommodation.There is extensive parking for a number of cars and there are a wide range of sheds, greenhouses and stores in the grounds.
