Timber framed barn on the North Downs in Molash, Kent, between Canterbury and Ashford
Five bedroom barn, converted to a very high standard in a contemporary style, and set in grounds of three quarters of an acre, equidistant between Canterbury and Ashford in Kent, within commuting distance of London
A generously proportioned timber framed barn located in a rural position on the North Downs on the edge of the village of Molash. The City of Canterbury and Canterbury (with the arrival soon of the fast rail link to London and Faversham) are within 12 minutes by car.
It has been finished in a contemporary style and has five double bedrooms, three with ensuites, plus a large family bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom.
The internal layout has been designed to focus attention on the impressive timber frame. With voids and galleries running nearly the entire length of the 21m barn, the feeling of space is overwhelming. Large glass cart doors to the front and rear, plus an imaginative use of glass, make The Barn unusually light.
The designer kitchen is made by Wellman and includes all integrated Smeg appliances plus a halogen hob, a twin oven and a combination oven. There are plenty of storage units plus a large island unit which houses the hob and a food preparation area including a vegetable sink. From the kitchen there is also a large utility room with a range of storage units and cupboards.
The living area measures approx 12m x 9m and is neatly divided with a contemporary double glass sided stove by Stuv and contrasting oak and travertine stone floors.
The Barn is finished to an exceptionally high standard with oak used for every timber finish, doors, skirting, stairs etc. All of the electrical switches and sockets are flat plate with black pearl finish.
Outside, The Barn is approached by a private driveway, with gated access to it's large gardens measuring in the region of three quarters of an acre. Detached from The Barn there is an open fronted double garage plus additional parking.
