Troon HouseTroon House is a handsome family home that sits in a glorious semi-rural location just a matter of minutes from Maidstone town centre. The house is enveloped by just under four acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and backs onto verdant farmland, and therefore this is a property where one can enjoy an air of peaceful seclusion, but at the same time everyday necessities are extremely close at hand.
I have been building houses for forty years, says William, and when Troon House was constructed for me I ensured that everything was done to the highest standards; no expense was spared. In my opinion the location is superb, the house is magnificent and the grounds have to be seen to be believed.
This beautiful home has an elegant style, is immaculately presented and has a wealth of luxurious features, such as an indoor swimming pool, a gym, a sauna and a home cinema. It is a house that has been built on a grand scale, so there is a wonderful sense of light and space throughout, and yet it also has an extremely comfortable feel.
The property is approached via a long, sweeping driveway, which sets the house well back from the road, and one enters into an impressively large reception hall from which most of the main living areas flow. I like to have a feeling of space, says William, and so every room in this house is very large, and weve put double doors in most of the main living areas so you can really open the house up, which is wonderful when were entertaining. And its such a bright and airy house, says Christine. We have sixty-six windows in total, and every one has the most beautiful view over the garden; its like having huge landscape paintings on every wall.
I think you would be hard pressed to find another house with grounds as beautiful as these, says William. Its like living in your very own park. I love it and Ive looked after it; I think it will be terribly hard to leave it behind when we move. When were here with the gates closed we really could be anywhere, says Christine, and its so peaceful, all you can hear is birdsong; its truly idyllic.
I think we were very lucky to find such a great location, says William, and what I particularly like is our proximity to the main road. It doesnt impact on the peace and tranquillity of the house and grounds, and yet I can be in town or on the motorway in no time. There has been huge investment in Maidstone in recent years, adds Christine, so we have everything from great shops and restaurants, to the hospital and a variety of stations that operate fast services into central London. It couldnt be better.
I think well miss everything about this house when we move, says William, and so will our children and grandchildren; its been a proper family home. Its wonderfully spacious, very peaceful and despite its size is very low maintenance; it needs to be seen to be believed.*

MAIN DESCRIPTIONA truly superb property offered with high calibre fittings and in pristine condition throughout. The property is set within a beautiful landscaped plot of approximately 3.5 acres that encapsulates manicured lawns, a long entrance drive, a very large parking area and a eight car garage block.
Internally the property benefits from five large bedrooms and four large reception rooms. A leisure wing has been added that provides an indoor heated pool, a gymnasium, sauna and steam room.
The property also benefits from having gained planning permission for the construction of a detached building to house staff or perhaps used as an annexe.
Langley village its conveniently positioned south of Maidstone and offers very easy access to the motorway network. Several mainline rail stations are within comfortable reach allowing the owner of the property a real choice in how they may wish to commute to the capital. Access to the continent is also convenient, with Ashford International Station being just a 30 minute drive away and the Channel Ports and Channel tunnel found just beyond.
Excellent schools abound in this area. Primary and secondary schools are very accessible as are grammar schools. For those wishing to privately educate their children the renowned Sutton Valance school is just minutes away as is the nearby Sutton Valance Prep School.
