Fine and Country a delighted to offer this truly magnificent example of a Grade II Listed residence, poised in an elevated position affording far reaching views over the neighbouring farmland and beyond. The property has been sympathetically redecorated by the current owners who have managed to retain the original period features and to enhance the home to exacting standards. Currently configured with five bedrooms, each served by high specification en-suite bath/shower rooms and divided into two wings to the south and north of the house. The property exhibits a fine blend of contemporary elegance throughout with a large dining hall to the centre of the home providing a perfect space in which to entertain family and friends. This room offers enormous character with beamed walls and ceilings, an original quarry tiled floor and a large inglenook fireplace providing warmth in the winter and a year round focal point. The stylish bespoke kitchen with vaulted ceiling has been cleverly arranged to afford an abundance of practicality combined with quality integrated appliances and benefits from the added convenience of a walk in pantry and separate utility room. Additionally there is a study, downstairs cloakroom and two further lounges to the ground floor which offer more formal areas to retire and relax. The property occupies idyllic grounds of approximately 1.25 acres within a rural yet accessible location. The Parish of East Sutton is well positioned, being very close to the village of Sutton Valence. The area is well served with easy access to the motorway networks. Private and State schools, serving both the primary and secondary age groups are nearby, as are mainline rail stations.

Seller Insight Beautifully positioned in the heart of the Kentish Weald, just seven miles from Maidstone town centre is Morry House, a very handsome family home that also boasts two acres of stunning grounds. The property originally dates back to the 17th century, but over time it has been greatly enlarged, and in more recent years it has been stylishly and sympathetically improved by the current owner. The owner comments that it was the quite spectacular setting that originally attracted him to the property. The house enjoys an elevated location and in almost every direction the view is green for as far as the eye can see, and within both the house and the grounds there is a wonderful feeling of peaceful seclusion. So although the house was in need of updating when he purchased it, he could see that it had a wealth of potential to be transformed into a really fabulous family home, and that potential has now most definitely been realised. Morry House is very much a family home and throughout there is a tremendous feeling of both light and space. It incorporates a large kitchen/breakfast room, an extremely impressive and hugely characterful dining room and two further spacious reception rooms, and each of the generously proportioned bedrooms is en suite, so it is a house that is ideal for modern living. The expansive grounds wrap around three sides of the house and are wonderfully established. There are open lawns, mature English hedgerows and right at the very end there is a very pretty partwalled garden that incorporates a patio terrace, ideal for alfresco entertaining. The current owner of the property says that the garden is an outstanding feature of the property. It’s ideal for relaxing, entertaining and it could be an amazing natural playground for children. The owner comments that the dining hall is without doubt the standout room in the house. It features a heavily beamed ceiling, the original stone floor and a huge inglenook, so not only is it a very characterful room but it also provides an extremely impressive entertaining space. What makes this location so special is the fact that the immediate surroundings are very rural, peaceful and incredibly picturesque, and yet from the house it’s only a ten-minute drive to the motorway or the station at Headcorn – which operates a fast service into central London – and the property is situated almost equidistant between Maidstone and Ashford. The current owner says that as up dating process has only recently finished, the house is absolutely immaculate throughout and ready for the new owners to move in and enjoy. Morry House is without doubt a very beautiful and spacious family home, but what really sets it apart are the stunning grounds and the truly idyllic setting.
