Outside: The property is accessed from Churn Lane via a right of way over a shared driveway within the ownership of Pittlands Lakes (marked yellow on plan). The driveway maintenance will be shared for the front access way leading up to the boundary of Pittlands Farmhouse. The Farmhouse then sits within its own scheduled grounds of approximately just over an acre to the North with its own drive (marked brown on plan) which we understand there to be a further historic right of way to the North. The grounds incorporate front and rear gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with interspersed trees and shrubs with a couple of small outbuildings. The house adjoins orchards to the east which cover about 2.43 acres with a woodland shaw to the North West. The property is bordered by agricultural land to the north east and west with far reaching countryside views beyond. There is a dilapidated lean-to which was previously used as a garage prior to it falling into disrepair adjacent to a large parking and turning area to the North West boundary of the plot.

Situation: The property is located on the rural outskirts of the parish of Horsmonden in the Weald of Kent. Horsmonden offers local amenities with further educational, recreational and shopping facilities provided in Tonbridge some 9 miles to the west and Tunbridge Wells some 10 miles to the south west. Paddock Wood railway station is located 3 miles to the North West which provides direct services to London.
