Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A delightful unlisted period cottage with off road parking, set within beautiful and secluded gardens in this sought after village to the south of the city of Canterbury. The cottage has seen many improvements in recent years, but has still managed to retain much of its charm and character.

The front door opens into a lovely dining/family room with exposed beams and timbers and an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove.

An original latch-key door opens into the kitchen to the rear of the cottage. This has been beautifully fitted with a range of bespoke, hand painted units, set around oak work surfaces and a butler sink. Other pleasant features which complement the kitchen’s traditional styling include oak flooring and wood panelling to the walls.

A staircase rises from the dining/family room to a magnificent first floor sitting room. This has an exposed brick chimney breast, many exposed beams and a wonderful sense of seclusion due to its elevation from street level.

There are two further bedrooms on this floor, both of them good size double rooms, and the family bathroom. This has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite which includes a splendid rolled top, claw foot bath.


To the front of the cottage, a block paved driveway provides parking for at least one car. A paved and gated side access leads to the rear garden, which measures approximately 76 ft.

This is mainly laid to lawn with a large, paved patio area and wonderfully mature, planted borders which create a tremendous sense of seclusion and privacy. There are a variety of outbuildings within the garden, including a workshop, a shed, a summerhouse and a bike store.


Lower Hardres is a charming little village situated just 4 miles to the south of Canterbury. The village is served by a thriving farm shop, a church and a delightful period pub and fine eatery, The Granville, which is featured in The Good Food Guide.

Lower Hardres also has a modern village hall which hosts a variety of clubs and societies ranging from fitness and dance classes to gardening and the Women’s Institute. The village enjoys good road communications, being just 3 miles from the A2 (which connects with the M2 motorway) and 10 miles from junction 11 of the M20.
