THE HOUSE

Introducing the Adam Suite, an ultra-luxurious apartment forming the entire penthouse of the award-winning “Colesdane” mansion estate. Surrounded by over 9 acres of immaculately landscaped communal gardens and woodlands, it was built in 2001 by John Walker Developments. Steeped in history, yet with a tasteful modern design, the Adam Suite is perfect if you are seeking an elegant, low-maintenance lifestyle in an area of outstanding natural beauty with incredible views of the Kent countryside. 

The Adam Suite offers 3,980 square feet of pure luxury and exclusivity, that immediately greets you as the doors of the private lift open into the centre of the apartment. With stunningly tall ceilings, ornate cornicing and beautiful sash windows, every detail is finished to an impeccable standard throughout. The perfect blend of classical architecture and modern living is truly accomplished. 

Stepping through into a spacious and elegant lounge, double-aspect windows fill the room with natural light, enhancing the subtle colour palette. An opulent marble fireplace takes centre stage, encapsulated by beautifully crafted cabinetry adding further depth and character. Extending almost 30 feet, it is the perfect space to relax and unwind or entertain guests. 

Next to the lounge, is the extraordinary kitchen diner affording further views onto the Kent countryside. Carefully designed and built by Tom Howley, classic shaker-style doors, a Silestone quartz worktop and a grand central island, form a beautifully bespoke kitchen. An additional built-in seating area provides the perfect opportunity to host family and friends, in a gorgeously decorated environment. A pantry offering plenty of storage, and a separate utility room can both be accessed via the kitchen for convenience. 

Situated adjacently is the expansive dining room, ideal for more formal dinners and larger get-togethers. The current owners also like to use it as a snooker room, highlighting the versatility this spacious apartment affords.

The master suite with views onto the blossoming grounds, is extremely inviting and provides the perfect sanctuary to relax after a long day. With ample space for a super king-size bed, the tall ceilings add to the overwhelming sense of grandeur. Benefitting from an ensuite with his and her sinks and a separate bath and shower, there is also a walk-in wardrobe complete with fitted cabinetry. If that’s not all, you can access a study with bespoke desk and cupboards providing the perfect working environment. 

The second bedroom is equally as impressive also with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The third and final bedroom still has plenty of room and features a lovely skylight letting in lots of natural light. 

Complete with an additional WC and shower room, arguably the best feature of this home is the spiral staircase leading to your own private rooftop terrace. With 360° views of the Kent countryside, the sunsets from here are breath-taking. 

THE GROUNDS

‘Colesdane’ mansion house is entered via a tree lined, gravel, private driveway, leading to a coach sweep that incorporates a roundel filled with flowering shrubs and topiary, directly in front of the magnificent property. A separate garage complex provides The Adam Suite with its own double garage with electronic door and remote-controlled access, to fit two large cars and further storage in the eves. 

The property is accessed by a communal entrance. It is possible to take the stairs to the first floor of the apartment or the lift enabling access straight to the second floor, the centre of the apartment. 

The 9 acres of exceptional gardens and grounds surrounding The Adam Suite boast ample opportunity to relax, unwind and take in the Kent countryside without leaving your home. Beautiful meandering paths and lawns lead to a stunning Italian garden, two ponds, a rose garden, croquet lawn with an Italian design pavilion, grotto and summer house. 

In the mature woodland, you will find a maintained area of wildlife, hidden seating areas and a campfire perfect for entertaining. 

THE MYTHS DISPELLED

The tenure of The Adam Suite is Common Freehold, whereby each owner owns an eighth of the freehold of the entirety of the Colesdane estate with an underlying lease which is 999 years from 01/01/2000. Common freehold or shared freehold, as it is sometimes referred to, is unlike a traditional leasehold purchase. Upon completion, you will join a select group of residents with shareholder and director positions within Colesdane Management Limited. This enables you to have influence over change and future opportunities of the estate. 

The benefits are huge and sometimes misunderstood, but it’s important to remember you are purchasing a lifestyle at Colesdane, which enables you to live a maintenance free life in immaculate surroundings. 

The annual service charge is kept to a minimum by residents who always ensure efficient and effective use of joint resources. The charge provides for many daily elements including all gardening & woodland management, CCTV security, exterior lighting, buildings insurance, sewage, communal area general maintenance and repair. 

It also contributes to an agreed ‘reserve fund’ or contingency to cater for longer term planned projects, such as all exterior planned improvements and decoration or any unexpected occurrences. 

THE AMENITIES

Whilst The Adam Suite is set within 9 acres of garden and woodland, this does not mean there are poor services or restricted communications. Mobile signal is good and the property benefits from good broadband connection. If you wish, Sky is available via a communal dish enabling you to transfer your current account to your new address quickly and efficiently. 

The property is supplied with mains electricity, water & LPG gas. Colesdane benefits from private drainage with an eco-friendly bio-mass unit which is managed by the management company and all costs are included in the service charge. 

There is CCTV, exterior photo/electric lighting alongside other measures, which offer a highly secure lifestyle perfect for full time residents, but also highly desirable for those looking for a premises they can lock up and leave safe in the knowledge it is secure. 

THE LOCATION

The Adam Suite is situated on the outskirts of Harrietsham, Kent, a popular village home to many properties in the North Downs area of outstanding national beauty. Whilst you can enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of country life, you are only a short distance from all the local amenities and convenient transport links. Harrietsham train station is a 6-minute drive away with trains to London Victoria arriving in approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes maximum. If you would prefer a day trip to the continent with a spot of lunch, then you’re only a 40-minute drive to the channel tunnel to Europe. Within easy access of the M20 motorway, the property is extremely well-connected. 

Alongside Harrietsham, Hollingbourne & Lenham villages are nearby with many opportunities for residents to be part of the local community with social clubs, sports clubs, good quality pubs & restaurants with several beautiful walks along the Downs. Excellent golf courses are located close-by including Leeds Castle & The Ridge. The lovely heritage site of Leeds Castle is just down the road and even if you cannot visit, you can see the firework display from your private rooftop terrace.
