The Walled Garden is situated on the outskirts of Yalding, a sought after and picturesque village offering an attractive and traditional village community. This impressive and stylishly presented family home set within landscaped gardens has a vaulted drawing room with original beams and dates back to ca. 1660, with the rest of the property having been added in the 1980s. The property comprises 4/5 bedrooms, drawing room, 2 reception rooms, en suite to master bedroom, kitchen, utility room, shower room and family bathroom. The property benefits from double garage, parking on the drive for approximately 6 cars and further benefits from mains drainage and mains gas. To avoid disappointment we recommend immediate viewing.
The vaulted drawing room and bedroom above date back to circa 1660 with the rest of the property having been added in the 1980s. As we understand, the top 10 courses of bricks from the wall provided the brickwork to the conversion. This is a superb family home which has been much loved. The current owners have entertained in the beautiful garden over the years and spent many a wonderful Christmas in the simply stunning drawing room. The property has the added advantage, for a rural location, to have mains drainage and gas connected.
The property is approached through a 5-bar gate over a gravel driveway, with parking for 3 cars in front of the garage with further space for parking at the rear of the property, for at least 3 cars.
