Full description

A pretty semi-detached double-fronted period cottage in need of some improvement and located in an excellent position towards the outskirts of the village.

This delightful cottage is situated in a quiet no-through road off Bossingham Road on the outskirts of the lovely and sought-after village of Stelling Minnis. The Minnis, which surrounds the village, is a large tract of unspoilt grass and woodland managed by conservators and provides marvellous walking and recreational facilities. Stelling Minnis is located off Stone Street which connects Canterbury with Folkestone and the property lies approximately 9 miles south of the Cathedral City of Canterbury.

Directions by road: On entering the village of Stelling Minnis from Stone Street, via Curtis Lane, turn right into Bossingham Road, proceed for 0.2 of a mile. Look for the small 30 mph sign on your right-hand side and turn right into a tarmac road which is marked 'No through' road. White Cottage is the third property on the left-hand side.

This spacious period semi-detached house is reputedly in part 260 years old. The cottage was originally two but has been converted into one in more recent years and has superb views from the front windows across The Minnis. The accommodation, which is in need of some modernisation and improvement, has oil central heating* to most rooms and many original period features. (*The central heating system has not been turned on in 20 years and should be tested prior to exchange of contracts by the purchaser and his solicitor/surveyor).
