Property Description

Full description

Nestled in idyllic grounds and gardens extending to several acres, Oakleigh is a beautiful period home in a small and desirable village location just a stone's throw from Canterbury.

Approached via a private, gated driveway, this large family home is discreetly situated away from the main road and well screened behind established, tree-lined boundaries.

Believed to date from the 17th century with later additions, and formed in part from a hall house, this unlisted property has much character, with open fireplaces, exposed timbers and leaded windows.

Invitingly cool in summer and cosy in winter, this is a welcoming home that enjoys an unspoiled and constantly evolving outlook from each window, that changes with the seasons.

Extensive accommodation is laid out over nearly 2,400 sq.ft and includes a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining dining room, which benefits from far-reaching views and French doors opening onto a patio.

There is plenty of living space which includes a large living room, a family room and study. There is also a cloakroom, boot room and utility.

Five bedrooms lie on the first floor, four of which are good-size double rooms. The master bedroom has an adjoining ensuite bathroom, whilst a family shower room serves the remaining rooms.

Delightful gardens surround the property, which have been lovingly tended and beautifully planted.

With so much outside space, it's easy to lose yourself amongst the rose beds, shrubs and rare tree specimens, one of which is the Chinese hankerchief tree.

Several outside seating areas immediately adjacent to the house are great for entertaining, whilst the croquet lawn provides fun for whole family.

Beyond the lawns and colourful array of flowers, meandering paths cut through wild grasses and fruit trees into a veritable adventure playground for children and home to a host of wildlife.

A driveway provides parking for several vehicles in addition to a detached range of garaging with workshop.
