Tenure: Freehold

This attractive double fronted Victorian property, with a mellow brick facade, has been substantially extended in the early part of this century. In recent years it has been beautifully refurbished and had the addition of a large conservatory, all of which makes for a spacious and comfortable home, set within glorious gardens in a wonderful village location.

The property is entered via a welcoming central entrance hall with a well appointed cloakroom, wooden dado panelling and an elegant staircase to the first floor with a fine mahogany rail.

On the right of the hallway is the dining room which has dual aspect sash windows overlooking the front and side gardens. This is a pleasant room which has a stripped floor and an impressive fireplace with a marble surrounded and quarry tile hearth. There is also a serving hatch to the kitchen.

The kitchen breakfast room is at the rear of the house and has been fitted with good quality units and work surfaces. It has a tiled floor with electric under floor heating, a good range of cream units including larder units and an integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher and these are topped with a lovely granite work surface. The owners are including a 5 ring gas range within the sale.

A stable door leads to the very pleasant gardens and a doorway leads into the through sitting room. This versatile space could be used as two rooms and has a Victorian marble fireplace, inset with a wood burning stove, a dual aspect and a stripped floor.

Double doors lead into a very large conservatory which could serve for multiple purposes and has a tiled floor and doors onto the garden. It also provides access to the utility room and in turn the sweet little study, that has a vaulted ceiling set with a window into the apex of the roof.

To the first floor is an elegant split level landing with an airing cupboard, four good sized bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The master bedroom has two good sized built in wardrobes, an ornate fireplace and an en suite shower room. This has dado panelling, a wash hand basin top set onto a vanity unit, a W.C. with an enclosed cistern and a panelled bath with mixer taps and a shower fitting.

The three further bedrooms all have built in wardrobe or cupboard space. The bathroom is well presented and has a ceramic tile floor, a top set sink unit onto a vanity unit and a panelled bath with mixer taps and a shower fitting.


At the front of the property is a large shingle driveway with parking for several vehicles. It has hedgerows to the front providing good privacy. At the rear is a good sized garden of approx. 73 ft x 68ft. There is a large walled patio behind the house that leads on to the main lawn area which is dotted with fruit trees and shrubs.

The garden is boundaried by some pretty flowerbeds and there is a shed. To the side of the property is another garden which overlooks paddocks, this has a long pergola from the main patio onto a further seating area. This has pretty flowerbeds edged with dwarf box hedging. It has a side gate onto the front drive.


The charming village of Preston is home to The Church of St. Mildred, The Half Moon and Seven Stars public house, a village shop, a butchers and a primary school.

Mill House is located on the outskirts of the village, close to open countryside and opposite a large, exclusive development (currently under construction). Once finished, this will create a real community to the outskirts of this lovely village.

Preston is surrounded by some beautiful countryside which is ideal for walking, cycling and riding, whilst the nearby Stodmarsh Nature Reserve is home to many species of migrating birds and wildlife.

The village of Wingham which is approximately two miles away offers a wider range of shops and amenities including a doctor's surgery and a dentist.

The bustling cathedral city of Canterbury is just eight miles away and this offers an excellent range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities. It also has two mainline railway stations and a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras.
