What the owner says:

We knew this house was right for us as soon as we entered it and almost 40 years later we have been proved right. The proportions were excellent and it had a lovely feel.
Our children are now adults and have moved on, but it was perfect for them as they were growing up for schools, easy access into Canterbury, 20 mins from the coast plus numerous woodland walks a short drive away.
As a typical 1930’s house we needed to expand it, so over the years we extended the kitchen, added a utility room, downstairs cloakroom and an extra family room.
We love the original leaded windows at the front of the house and we have kept them in good order to maintain the character of this lovely house.
The kitchen/breakfast room is where everyone gathers, but each room has its own special feel. The lounge is cosy & warm, especially in winter with the open fire lit. The family room is lovely in the summer with the doors wide open leading onto the garden. The dining room is elegant and great for entertaining.
Over the years there have been numerous parties, celebrations and Christmas get-togethers with family and friends, which the house has easily coped with.
The garden has evolved over time and consists of a lawn, a variety of shrubs, a small pond to encourage wildlife and a vegetable patch.
The time has come for us to move on as we want to be closer to our daughter and family in Chestfield, so reluctantly we need to pass this lovely home onto someone else
