Estate Agent Description

A handsome Grade II listed, mainly Georgian country house requiring refurbishment, with pond and outbuildings.

Description
Fairbourne Court is a fine, predominantly Georgian country house with impressive brick façade, enhanced by mature rambling wisteria and enjoying grounds of over 2.7 acres including stunning large spring fed pond and paddock. In addition to the house are several period barns, offering immense potential, subject to the relevant planning consents.

The main house is a beautiful building with the date it was originally built (1724) inscribed in the brickwork over the front door. Originally part of The Leeds Castle Estate, the property has been in the same ownership since the mid 1970’s and now offers a wonderful opportunity for refurbishment.

The house has many distinctive features typical of the period, including high ceilings, multi paned sash windows, some with working shutters and period fireplaces. A number of the well proportioned light reception rooms and bedrooms enjoy a south westerly aspect with views over the garden and pond to the front.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with Victorian cast iron staircase rising to the first floor, four reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired four oven aga, a walk in larder, a WC and door leading down to the cellar.

Off the first floor landing are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom fitted with coloured suite and a separate WC. The main bedroom benefits from en suite shower and WC facilities.
Stairs lead up to the substantial second floor where there are two further bedrooms, a bathroom, WC and a storage area.

Fairbourne Court benefits from a front and rear drive, both leading to parking areas for a number of cars. To the front a central path, is edged by lavender bushes and level lawns, interspersed with specimen trees and ancient evergreen Yew trees. A magical view can be enjoyed of the pond. To the rear is a sloping area of garden, a small paddock and a delightful stone building which was formerly used as stabling, with coach house and workshop.

To the west of the gardens is a collection of period barns, in varying states of disrepair, these include a substantial two storey barn, a pole barn, a triple open bay cottage and a derelict stable.

Location
Fairbourne Court occupies a country lane position about 1.2 miles from Harrietsham which benefits from a good range of everyday amenities, under two miles from the pretty village of Ulcombe with The Pepperbox Inn and The Harrow Inn and primary school and 3.2 miles from the market village of Lenham with Coop supermarket, village store, pharmacy, school and public houses.

Rail services run from Harrietsham and Hollingbourne to London Victoria in about 1 hour 12 mins. Ashford (15.3 miles) has a high speed train service to London St Pancras in about 37 minutes. Ebbsfleet International (23 miles) has fast services to London St Pancras in about 20 mins.

Like many parts of Kent there is an excellent selection of schools in the area. In the state sector there are schools for boys and girls in Maidstone, Sittingbourne, Cranbrook and Tonbridge. Independent girls and boys schools in the private sector include Sutton Valence, King’s Canterbury, Lorenden, St Edmunds and Tonbridge at junior and senior level.

There is easy access to the M20 (Junction 8) and M2 providing links to Gatwick and Heathrow airport and other motorway networks.
