An amazing medieval home, built by the crew who redesigned Shakespeare’s Globe in 1997, has gone up for grabs at £2.8M.

Nestled in beautiful gardens and trees, Corner Cottage is located on Haymans Hill in Tonbridge, Kent, and is an outstanding, timber-framed former hall house, believed to date from approximately 1460.

The amazing kitchen

The fascinating four-bedroom, four-bathroom home has been completely restored, extended and refurbished – merging the historic integrity with the 21st century.

The restoration and beautiful extension was undertaken by the same company responsible for the design and construction of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.

The home is spread over three floors and amounts to in excess of 4,500 sq ft, including a generous wine cellar and air-conditioned gym.

Enormous wine cellar

On the ground floor is the sitting room with an open fireplace, a formal dining room, a bespoke home office, utility room and a family room, which all give amazing garden views.

The kitchen is a stunning room, fitted with a three oven gas Aga, huge island and beautiful beamed ceilings, connected to the sitting and dining rooms.

An oak staircase leads to the first floor landing, which leads to a stunning guest bedroom with shower room and decked balcony.

Then, reached through another flight of stairs or through the first bedroom, the first floor also boasts three further bedrooms and two bathrooms – including the magnificent vaulted principal bedroom, with luxuriously appointed bathroom.

Outside, Corner Cottage has beautiful landscaped gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 1.6 acres.

To the front, there are ancient yew trees, Laburnum trees, rose beds and raised herb beds.

There is also a heated swimming pool with electric cover, tiled surround and a further large terrace, perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Relax, sunbathe or swim by the beautiful pool

Corner cottage is approached by electric gates which leads you through to a pretty area of private woodland, with a path that meanders beside a spring-fed pond.

Additionally, you’ll find a double garage with an adjoining workshop and open sided log store, as well as a glasshouse, greenhouse, dog kennel, pool house and a plant room.

The cottage is approached via electric gates which open to a paved drive.

There is a secondary gated access to the southwest of the gardens culminating in a generous area of parking, the garaging and workshop.

The home is under a mile from Horsmonden Village and four miles from Paddock Wood station, with frequent services to London.

The property is currently on the market with Savills for £2.8 million.
