Property Flirt:


Property Flirt is one of the most popular features on Muddy – because you’re all nosy like me! – so I’m all for keeping it interesting by giving you new challenges. This house is a rather fabulous looking Grade II listed farmhouse with it’s own charming features and pretty garden but also part of a private development, with access to communal grounds too. Will that make it a tricky one to guess on price? I think it might have the better of you (wah, ha, haaaaaa). Come on then, let’s ring the bell. What, no one in? Okay, let’s sneak round the back and shimmy up the drain pipe…



Beautiful, charming, perfectly formed…The Old Farmhouse, Caxton Place, is situated in a quiet residential road in Hadlow just outside Tonbridge – so a real hotspot for both commuters (around 50 mins into London) and families (excellent colleges, independent and grammar schools all ripe for the picking). You’ve also got all the local ammenities and shops of Hadlow village on your doorstep.




So what we’re looking at here is a 5 bedroom attached family home, (2 with en suites); lots of sympathetic updates, while maintaining all the gorgeous period features, like that large inglenook fireplace (above) flagstone flooring in the kitchen (oh, and a a four oven Aga) and loads of exposed wall and ceiling timbers everywhere. We like that.


The master bedroom features a stunning vaulted ceiling and some nifty fitted oak wardrobes and cupboards – perfect for my shoe collection. And just to give you something else to take into consideration with your price prediction, there’s a separate study and dining room as well… Want to take a look outside for a few more clues? Follow me…



When thinking of numbers, remember it is an attached property. Yet it offers privacy too. There is a pretty part walled rear cottage style garden with a good sized patio area, ideal for al fresco dining and/or an afternoon G & T. The residents of Caxton Place also have access and use of exceptionally well maintained grounds and a beautiful communal garden.

Keep in mind, Tonbridge has surged to the top of the list for prime property sales outside London – so potentially any purchase in this area is a smart investment.

Righto! No more clues… Are you ready with your final figure? Get it set in your mind, argue it out with the cat (or whoever’s sitting next to you) and click here to see how close you got!
