THE PROPERTY: Believed to date from the 17th century, this charming Kentish farmhouse has been extended to create a welcoming family home with a separate converted granary annexe, The Lodge.
THE LOCATION: Situated in a secluded countryside setting in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Rogley Farm lies at the edge of the village of Biddenden, between the market towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden, with several excellent schools in the vicinity and rail access to London from Headcorn Station (six miles away) or Ashford International (14 miles). The neighbouring Hemsted Forest is a beautiful area for walking.
THE INTERIOR: The main farmhouse has three substantial reception-rooms and a fitted kitchen with an Aga oven on the ground floor, with four bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. There are lovely period features throughout, including oak flooring and oak-framed windows. The self-contained Lodge includes a vaulted living area with mezzanine sleeping platform, a shower room and a kitchenette.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The landscaped gardens are notable for their sweeping lawns, specimen trees and beautiful wisteria- and rose-clad pergola, making this the perfect home to move into come spring.
