Grade II Listed Pope Street Farmhouse has been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment campaign over recent years, the results of which are breath-taking. The whole home has been thoughtfully re-crafted using a combination of flair, fine materials and craftsmanship.
The generously proportioned family accommodation is well laid out and centred on a superb family kitchen/breakfast room, which opens onto a large terrace and the gardens beyond and it intercommunicates with the family room. There are also two gracious formal reception rooms, the dining room having a large inglenook fireplace and the drawing room a more Georgian feel. A study is also found on the ground floor, along with two cloakrooms and a dog room. The cellars below are arranged as a very well equipped utility room, and a luxurious wine cellar.
The first floor has been rearranged and an extensive master bedroom suite has been created to enjoy the best of the views. The bathroom and dressing room are splendidly equipped. Three family bedrooms are found to the front of the first floor, sharing two bathrooms and there is a generous guest accommodation on the second floor.
The quality of the property continues into the carefully landscaped gardens, which are well planted with floor and shrub borders and hedges. The swimming pool is well contained; the adjoining outbuilding has great potential, having had planning permission granted in 2013 for conversion to ancillary accommodation (http://www.ashford.gov.uk ref 13/00021/AS). The tennis court is recently built.
Beyond is the former chalk pit, now an extension to the garden with space for children’s play equipment, large sheds and chicken runs etc. Closer to the house are the open-fronted car barn with gymnasium behind, as well as log stores and further storage. There is ample car parking on the driveway.
