OUTSIDE Thornsdale Farm is set at the very end of a long private lane. As you approach the house, a five bar gate leads you onto a driveway where there is parking and turning for several cars in front of a double garage. The garage, which has an attached workshop to the rear, offers potential for additional living accommodation (stpp). The landscaped and more formal front garden, with its wonderfully mature trees and box balls, is perfectly in keeping with the character of the house, whilst the beautiful rear garden, with its spectacular uninterrupted views towards the Isle of Oxney, is a nature lover's haven. A terrace across the back of the house lends itself perfectly to entertaining and relaxation, and there is a further upper terrace where the heated swimming pool can be found. On the lower level, paths mowed through the long meadow grass lead you past a large wild life pond to the river's edge, where there is a private mooring with hinged boat landing stage. A perfect place to spend those peaceful summer days.
