Full description

When does a house become a home? when you fill it full of family. There will be no issues doing that in this home as there are plenty of bedrooms and more than enough rooms for everyone to either be together or have their own space.

The living room, which has a snug feeling, has a lovely air of peace and I can imagine sitting in front of the open fire with a good book or having a snooze on a Saturday afternoon. If you want to be more social then head for the kitchen which is the real heart of the home where most of the family can be found leaning up against the oak breakfast bar talking over their day. Meals can be either eaten in the dining room or, if the sun is out, out on the patio.

If you are wanting to build your appetite for Sunday dinner then take a walk round the woods which are some of the oldest in England and have several different routes from dog walks or gentle ambles to ones for the more athletic among us.

Blean is a village that attracts families wanting to have their children go to the Primary School which has had a fantastic reputation for years and is not far along the road from this house. Canterbury and the coast are both on your doorstep along with schools and plenty of shopping in the City Centre.

AGENTS NOTE - The current vendors have obtained planning permission for a conservatory, plus an additional storey comprising of two bedrooms (one en-suite) and an additional W.C.

What the Owner says:

With 5 bedrooms this has been a perfect and fun family home for the last 12 years, even when working from home. With a large, private sun-filled garden, garage/workshop and log cabin, backing onto 3000 acres of nature reserve, enjoying the woods, mountain biking and dog walking and back to a cozy real log fire have been everyday pleasures. The large oak floored kitchen dining room has been the focus for family life and entertaining.

Our daughter is 22 and moved away after university and after obtaining full planning permission for an orangery and roof conversion, we have decided to stop working from home and relocate our expanding business as an alternative to extending the house further.
