1977 was a Jubilee year and a fortuitous one for the owner of this home, it started a wonderful period where, moving into this home, both family and a business grew.
Forty-five years on and it is time to pass the reins to someone new, to let others make a super home here and perhaps place their own stamp upon this intriguing property.
The house is believed to have origins dating back to around 1820 though much of what you see is 1930's after a major rebuild.
It is a home with an enticing feel, one that begins as you enter the front gate and walk along the meandering path, the sound of water trickling in the pond accompanying you to the front porch.
From the road the home is hard to spot, you see garage doors to begin with. Behind those is a place where the hobby side of a business has been indulged and, ever thoughtful, the owner has extended and improved the space; looking at it you can easily imagine this becoming a wonderful detached annex for relatives.
One of the lures originally was the commercial unit. A growing business fitted easily into here at the outset then grew, expanded and finally outgrew the space here. From that point on the unit produced a rental income and a few businesses went through a similar successful growth cycle.
Mereworth is a small village sat where the A228 meets the A26. The far end of The Street joins Seven Mile Lane making this one of those incredibly well-connected locations. Pick an address in Kent and it is pretty simple to find a route there.
Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Maidstone, West Malling, Tonbridge, London, all are easy to reach and around the village wonderful countryside surrounds you.
Footpaths take you out along the edges of fields, past fruits of differing kinds.
St Lawrence's Church is a Grade I Listed Neo Palladian style building that retains some medieval stained glass from the former church. In the 1740's the Church was 'moved' at the behest of John Fane as part of his reconstruction and expansion of Mereworth Castle.
