Full description

The property, consisting of the main house and adjacent new build, is situated on the edge of the sought after village of Chillenden, a charming unspoilt village about 9 miles from the cathedral city of Canterbury and 5 miles from the historic town of Sandwich. Chillenden boasts a 12th century church, an award winning 14th century public house and Chillenden Windmill, one of only three historic post mills in Kent. An excellent local farm shop with butchers, florist and café is 2 miles away and there is a small rural village primary school in Goodnestone, around 1 mile away. A range of facilities can be found in Sandwich, including an extensive range of shops, supermarket, doctor and dentist surgeries, opticians, banks, restaurants, public houses and a high speed train service to London St. Pancras.

The Ark sits on a plot measuring 0.3 acres and offers an exciting and rare opportunity to either renovate/refurbish the main house or enjoy the challenge of demolishing and replacing it with either your own design for a new dwelling, or using the design for which planning consent has already been granted (Ref: DOV/15/00502).

The current owners have replaced an old dilapidated barn with a superb new build adjacent to the main house, which echoes the shape of the old barn that once stood there. This new build incorporates a light and airy contemporary design with attractive tiled floor, underfloor heating, panelled oak veneer doors and well fitted modern bathrooms. This accommodation is extremely versatile and would lend itself superbly as a potential holiday let, granny flat or annexe. It also incorporates a deceptively large double garage which would also make an extremely useful workshop. A door to the rear of the garage leads to an office/study which in turn has a further door leading outside.

Outside is a private driveway and ample parking for numerous vehicles.
