Handsome Misling Farm On Sprawling, Romantic GroundsMisling Lane, Stelling Minnis, Canterbury, United Kingdom
Misling Farm is a delightful and characterful Grade II listed farm house set in generous grounds. Approached off a small country lane, the main drive winds up through dappled woodland passing a pond and terminating in a gravelled parking and turning area in front of the house. An ancient brick and flint wall bounds a central pathway to the front door. The entrance hall opens directly into the generous and light drawing room. This double reception room has a lovely deep inglenook fireplace with copper hood at one end. With its southerly aspect, the room is filled with light and enjoys...good views over the garden. At the far end is a door to the adjoining sun room that runs the depth of the house, and which also gives access to the annexe and the utility room.Behind the drawing room is the farmhouse kitchen. It is well fitted with a range of matching units and working areas to one end with the other end given over to an informal dining area with ample space for relaxed family/friends entertaining. Beyond the kitchen is the dining room which continues through to the snug. Stairs rise to a wide landing. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom which is Jack and Jill to the adjoining bedroom. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.The annexe, accessible directly from the house or from its own front door, is generously arranged with just over 900 square feet of accommodation. It offers a large sitting room, kitchen, double bedroom, study/bedroom two and bathroom. The gardens and grounds of Misling Farm are a real treat. Immediately adjoining the house are the formal gardens with wide lawns and a series of rooms created from clipped hedging. Within these gardens are a number of seating areas and raised beds. Cottage borders around the house are filled with colourful flowering annuals and shrubs giving year round interest. Beyond the formal area of garden is a more parklike setting with specimen trees. This in turn leads on to the paddocks.The wooded entrance creates a magical approach to the house and the ancient pond adds to the romance and charm of the surroundings. Beyond the gardens is an area of woodland, and to one corner of the garden is a large and useful barn.
