Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This large and extended country property surrounded by 1.607 acres of grounds is a truly inter-generational family home. There is plenty of flexible and spacious accommodation currently configured in two parts. The primary end of the house consists of five bedrooms including the bedroom, a family bathroom, a recently installed new kitchen/breakfast room with a breakfast bar, oven, hob and cold store together with a large, open-plan lounge/dining area and a beautiful L-shaped conservatory. This can be accessed via the kitchen and the lounge area, making a wonderful additional seating and eating area as well as an

excellent environment for numerous plants. On the other side of the house you will find the annex, with a very large L-shaped sitting/dining area with direct access to the garden, a well-fitted kitchen and utility room and a separate staircase to two double bedrooms and a bathroom with both a bath and a shower. However, a further bedroom could be transferred to this side of the house if required, so there is truly plenty of room for adult children or elderly relatives to have a sizeable, separate home. Alternatively, it would be simple to recreate the whole house as one unit if you have a large family.

Outside, there is truly something for everyone – particularly if you are thinking of living the ‘good life’. There are a variety of garden areas, a one-acre paddock and a number of attractive outbuildings, some of which are insulated and have lighting and heating so can be used for a number of purposes. There is a double garage, a long driveway and a large triple carport so plenty of parking space for any number of vehicles.

Herne is a delightful place and there is an excellent primary school in the village, rated as Outstanding by Ofsted. Herne Bay, with its station and wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and beach, is only three miles away and it is even closer to the Thanet Way for access to London, Faversham and the Thanet towns.

What the Owner says:


We used to live next door and this has always been our ‘dream home’ and we were eventually able to purchase it. We have thoroughly enjoyed living here for many years and bringing up our children in such a wonderful environment. Unfortunately, family circumstances mean we have to make a move. However, we have lived along this road for 25 years and will not be moving far away as we find it is an ideal spot. We have a garden centre as well as the charming Butcher’s Arms micro-pub – reputed to be the first micro-pub in the country and the smallest free house in England. There are also plenty of places to walk nearby including the lovely Blean Woods National Nature Reserve with its five nature trails and an ancient woodland habitat. It has been a labour of love updating and extending the house and creating a variety of options in the grounds. The large wooden building outside affectionately known as the ‘The Lodge’ is just the place for barbecues on the decked terrace and occasional sleepovers as it even includes a log-burning stove, while the small stable block makes an ideal place for chickens, goats, miniature Shetland ponies or dog kennels. Alternatively, this could be converted into larger stables for horsey enthusiasts. Another building is our stunning gym and you could always put a hot tub in the summer house. There is an excellent ‘man cave’ as well as a large building designed as an office.
