Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tucked away at the end of a quiet cul de sac this modern four bedroom detached family home in the village of Etchinghill is a true delight. It has the added advantage of backing on to farmland with stunning views across the rolling Kentish countryside as far as the eye can see. It includes its own orchard with a variety of fruit trees such as apples, pears, quince and plums as well as cherries and raspberries. There is a good sized veggie patch with runner beans, potatoes and courgettes and an adjacent paddock that is about two and a half acres. This makes the house an ideal place if you have pony mad children or want to experience the ‘good life’ growing your own fruit and vegetables as well as keeping some sheep, chickens or even alpacas.

Internally there is a charming sitting room that opens up to the conservatory where you can sit and admire the views or wander out onto the adjacent terrace in the warmer weather. The attractive modern kitchen is adjacent to the utility room and has an archway through to the dining room providing a flowing and spacious ambience. Upstairs there is a family bathroom and four bedrooms including the master with its own en suite bathroom and wonderful views.

There is an attractive and secluded garden surrounded by mature shrubs and trees while at the front of the property you will find a garage and a driveway for off road parking as well as a beautifully maintained front garden.

What the Owner says:


We originally lived in the house virtually next door and watched this one being built in 1992. At the time we were looking for more space and a larger garden so we decided to buy this house from new and have loved living in it over the years. During that time we have developed the orchard and bought the paddock where we have some sheep. The area is very peaceful and safe for children and we never get tired of looking at the views. Over the years we have enjoyed hosting some great parties with a large marquee in the paddock.
We love the surrounding countryside and Etchinghill is a warm and friendly village with lots of activities in the village hall including a regular film club on the first Monday of every month and a village market that takes place on the first Saturday of every month as well as regular boot fairs at the Cricket Club. There is the excellent Etchinghill Golf Club with a restaurant that also does a great Sunday carvery and The Gatekeeper Inn – promoted as the nearest pub/restaurant to the Channel Tunnel.
It is very easy to get to the Continent and we are fairly central for Hythe, Canterbury, Ashford and Folkestone. For rail commuters the high speed train to London from Ashford International only takes 36 minutes to St Pancras. Sandling station is only a short distance and there are regular bus services to Folkestone with its excellent secondary schools and high street stores. The nearby Lyminge Primary school was considered Outstanding by Ofsted.
