Tickeridge Farmhouse, Kingscote.

A spacious and beautifully presented Hall House occupying a delightful semi-rural position with views across the Medway Valley.

Tickeridge Farmhouse is a spacious and beautifully presented Grade II listed Open Hall House dating from 1452 with later additions. Featured in many architectural journals, it is reputed to be one of the oldest Hall Houses in the South of England. As the name suggests, the property is situated on a ridge overlooking the surrounding countryside and across the Medway Valley.

The accommodation in the house is arranged over three floors, briefly comprising: entrance hall, drawing room, sitting/media room, study, open plan kitchen/dining/family room, utility room, cloakroom, master bedroom suite, 4 further bedrooms and 2 further bathrooms.

Tickeridge Farmhouse offers secondary accommodation in the recently refurbished former Forge, which is currently arranged as a ground floor kitchenette, gym, games room and wet room, with first floor offices.

The Forge incorporates an integrated heated double garage. Other outbuildings include a substantial open fronted timber framed barn and machinery store with first floor storage, a machine/garden store with greenhouse, a bothy cottage (previously used as an artist’s studio) and a summerhouse with underfloor heating.

The beautiful landscaped gardens extend to just under 1.5 acres and form an idyllic setting for the main house. To the south of the house is a sunken levelled garden with a fishpond; the east facing rear terrace is fully enclosed and can be accessed directly from the kitchen creating an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. Across the lane and adjoining the Gravetye Estate is a separate, lightly wooded paddock extending to about 5 acres, with a stream and two-storey log cabin.

In all, about 6.5 acres.
