Millbank Lodge is a beautifully crafted Potton house built around 10 years ago by the current owners using reclaimed materials and creating a home of great character and charm whilst being perfectly suited to the demands of 21st Century living. The property occupies a most rare and appealing location on the outskirts of Canterbury, surrounded by open countryside and tucked away in a private no-through road which it shares with only a few neighbouring properties.

The front door opens into a magnificent galleried entrance hall from which you are drawn to the stunning kitchen/breakfast room, which enjoys views over the garden and fields beyond. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of units underneath granite surfaces and is neatly fitted to one corner, whilst the rear portion is principally glazed, creating a very bright and airy family living space. There are two excellent reception rooms, configured as a drawing room and sitting room, both having large open fireplaces and the drawing room having French doors opening to the rear terrace. The accommodation on this level is completed with a good size study and a cloakroom.

On the first floor there are four good size bedrooms, set slightly in the eaves but having excellent head height and generous proportions. The master bedroom is a dramatic space with vaulted ceiling and King post. This fine room has fitted cupboards and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 has an en suite shower room and bedrooms 3 and 4 share the family bathroom.

Millbank Lodge is situated in a highly accessible yet rural location close to Canterbury. The City offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. There is an excellent range of educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors. For information on schools in the area please visit

The new slip road on to the A2 at Wincheap has further improved the road access and links to the M2 at Brenley Corner. The High Speed Link connects Canterbury West to London St. Pancras in 58 minutes and there is also a stopping service to London from both Canterbury East and West stations. Ashford International station, the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone and Port of Dover all provide services to the Continent.

Millbank Lodge is approached from a private lane over a paved driveway. To the left there is a detached garage building with plenty of storage space in the eaves above and easily space for two cars. There are beds to either side of the drive, planted with a variety of trees and shrubs.

The garden swings around both sides of the property and to the left there is a vegetable garden. The rear garden is principally laid to lawn and is perimetered to the rear by a post and rail fence. There is a generous paved terrace, which provides an excellent space for al fresco dining and outdoor entertaining, and is accessible from both the drawing room and kitchen.
