A characterful Edwardian-style property built in 1880 is for sale in the pretty market town of Edenbridge, Kent, for a cool £5 million.
Arranged over three sprawling floors, Blackmoor House is what countryside dreams are made of. In 2007, the property was purchased as three separate dwellings, but owners soon restored it to its former glory with elegant features and heaps of open-plan space.
It's visually striking, both inside and out. The principle reception rooms are all arranged around a vaulted hall (which has scene-stealing checkerboard tiles). Attention to detail here is wonderful, with the formal ground floor rooms providing a light-filled entertaining space for all to enjoy.
When you're not unwinding in the grand sitting room, head into the kitchen/breakfast room — the central core of the home. Converted from the former billiard room with vaulted ceilings, it has a stylish grey island, large dining room table, floor-to-ceiling windows, a cream-coloured AGA, and a plethora of useful kitchen cupboards.
Head upstairs and you'll find eight bedrooms, a principal suite with its own bedroom, bathroom and 'his and hers' dressing rooms, plus three further bathrooms.
The garden is a true tonic for the soul. At the back of the house, you'll find a heated swimming pool, a pool house with a fully-equipped kitchen, plus a pergola, tennis court, kitchen garden, yoga studio, tennis court, and paddocks. We also love the spacious lawn area, which gives owners the chance to unplug, rest and reset.
Encompassing 11 acres, there are also two interconnecting ponds with a small oak folly and decking in one corner of the garden. Moving further south, there's a Victorian-style greenhouse and practical outbuildings for hiding away all those garden tools. The generous herbaceous border tops it all off nicely.
Tempted to put down an offer? Blackmoor House is currently on the market for £5,000,000 with Knight Frank.
