A front door opens into an entrance hall with laminate floor. A door leads through to the family room and this opens into the dining room,
with French windows to the south-facing terrace and an opening through to the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of base and wall
units. The main sitting room has a south facing bay window with excellent views and French windows to a paved courtyard at the rear
of the house; there is a woodburning stove. To the east side of the house is a useful study with north-facing bay window and a utility room housing the central heating boiler; adjacent is a cloakroom and a rear garden room/boot room.

Lodge Farm is set on the south side of Bowl Road in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The picturesque village of Charing is about 1.25 miles to the south and offers good local shopping, a primary school,
railway station and doctor’s surgery together with pubs and restaurants. There are two other good pubs nearby, The Bowl Inn (0.75 mile) and The Plough in Stalisfield (1.5miles).
A comprehensive range of shops and schools can be found in the nearby market towns of Ashford and Faversham, with the Cathedral City of Canterbury offering an even greater
range of entertainments.

Lodge Farm is approached from Bowl Road over a tarmacadam drive with a central grass island which leads up to the house. A separate concrete drive leads to the main outbuilding. Attractive gardens surround the house with an area of productive apple orchard on the north-east side, with a greenhouse and mower store nearby. There are further gardens on the south side. Timber chalet style summerhouse with verandah. An arbour leads through a gap in the fence to a closely mown paddock which dramatically drops away down the upper slope of the Downs.
The present owners have planning permission to run a business from the premises. There are some excellent outbuildings currently used
for the business and it is considered likely that a new owner may be able to run a similar style of business subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. Alternatively these buildings will readily convert into useful outbuildings or stabling.
The buildings include 2 substantial block built and timber clad workshops (both 35’ x 20’approx) on the west side of the house; on
the east side is a large block and rendered (70’ x 20’ approx) with pitched roof and windows together with a double garage with a pitched roof and some other smaller outbuildings.
A drive leads down the east side of the property past the outbuildings to a rear courtyard and also gives access around the
rear of the house to the two more western buildings.
