Keller Williams Meldone Estates are excited to present this immaculate 5-double bedroom property to the market. The magnificent property is in the sought-after location of New Barn, on the outskirts of Longfield, Kent.

Positioned behind electric double gates and at the end of a private 100ft driveway, this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a beautiful detached family home. The property is a perfect example of a versatile family home and is being offered in superb condition having been renovated by the current owners. Whilst boasting a modern interior, the owners have been very careful not to lose the charm and character.

All areas of the home are in our opinion, designed and decorated to a high standard, and as you can see from our room list, the layout is both very practical and versatile to accommodate a growing family.

Complementing the spacious interior, buyers who love their outdoor space will certainly appreciate the extensive gardens which are well maintained and surround the home on 3 sides. These grounds provide a wonderful setting in which to entertain with friends and relatives plus there is an added bonus of a large detached summer house, currently being used by the owners as a gymnasium. The impressive outdoors also extend to the generous parking area which together with the detached double garage, provide ample off-road parking.?

This premium property has been fully decorated to a high specification throughout. From the entrance hall, you have access to the two reception rooms and then leading into the office/bedroom and dining area. With a well-presented modern kitchen with all modern appliances and services with a good size utility room adjacent, with access to the side garden
with a large patio area. The beautiful wrap around garden houses a large koi pond and a summer house that would make for a superb home office or a gym. Further potential to grow the property to the rear or to the side is a possibility with the permission and consent of the local authority.

Some words from the current owners
"This is a unique property located in a very quiet and private position as one of just two properties in a gated mews which is almost hidden within the road. It is rurally set with gorgeous countryside for walks, runs and cycling on your doorstep yet still within walking distance of a range of amenities in Longfield and the Vintage Inns pub and restaurant on Longfield Hill. There
are great commuter links by road and rail and it is c lose to major shopping centres.

We fell in love with the property the first time we saw it early in 2006 because of its hidden away location in a private road. We liked the unique style of the property with its large rooms and many high ceilings which offered ample living space inside and wrap around gardens offering
ample space for our family outside. We felt it was a safe and secure location for our children to grow up, whilst being peaceful and quiet.

We have modernised the property throughout whilst trying to remain in keeping with the property style and maintaining the original features that we inherited.

Although Pescot Avenue is a road of many individual houses, the residents are friendly, collaborative and neighbourly. Being a private road, it is not maintained by the council and the road had recently been in a state of disrepair. A group of Pescot Avenue resident's setup a committee to organise the resurfacing of the road, which was extremely well supported and resulted in the road surface being fully restored in 2021.

We are proud to of have been able to create a happy and relaxing home where you can interact with the family and be able to escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

We have been very fortunate to have enjoyed 16 very happy years here, while our children have grown up enjoying the space and freedom that the property has given us. Now our children are grown up, we no longer need the space inside or out and would love to see a new family taking
advantage of all the benefits that living in New Barn has to offer.

This property is one of the original properties first built in Pescot Avenue. From stories shared by older neighbours when we first moved in, we discovered that the house was built for the headmaster of the original village school (now a house on Main Road) and was known by locals
as the house on the hill due to its high position overlooking Longfield and Hartley'.
