A rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed late medieval Hall House, recently the subject of substantial renovation and modernisation without detracting from its original character. Improvements include re-roofing, new double glazed windows throughout, re-wiring, re-plumbing, a new drainage system and a new LPG central heating system with underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first and second floors. The original kitchen extension was demolished and re built to be more in keeping with the character of the house and featuring a high vaulted ceiling and range of hand built painted units.
The property stands in just over two and a half acres of grounds with extensive lawns, a small orchard and a pony paddock divided into two sections. The western boundary runs through the centre of an attractive lake.
Included in the sale is a detached timber built double garage and a detached timber framed barn dating from Victorian times and with lapsed planning consent for conversion to a self-contained annexe. Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries but initial meeting with Sevenoaks Planning Office indicates that there is a reasonable expectation that planning consent will be re-instated.
Occupying a rural but not isolated position at the end of a private unmade lane, shared by a number of individual properties and in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Picturesque Cowden Village with Church and popular pub is about 1 mile away and Cowden Station offering commuter services to Croydon & London is about 3 miles distant. Edenbridge Town offers a wider range of facilities and is within 4 miles.
From Edenbridge head south on the B2026 until reaching the Queen’s Arms Public House. Turn right into Spode Land and the drive to Ludwells Farmhouse will be seen after half a mile on the right hand side. Alternatively. From Cowden village, turn off the High Street into North Street which becomes Spode Lane and the drive to Ludwells Farmhouse will be seen after ¾ of mile on the left hand side.
