Woodcote Lodge is a substantial family home situated between the popular villages of Barham and Denton. The approach to the property is along Walderchain Lane, which has fabulous views over the surrounding valleys and farmland in all directions. As you draw closer to the house, there is a more wooded and secluded setting.

A generous entrance hall gives access to the majority of the ground floor rooms and offers a wealth of storage cupboards. Two sizeable reception rooms sit at the front of the property, one with a bespoke fireplace, and the other being a converted garage. The kitchen is open plan and is fitted with a variety of wooden units, AEG cooker, induction hob, and integrated Siemens dishwasher; there are also a walk-in larder, a separate store room and useful utility room. With views over the rear garden, the dining room and conservatory flow from the kitchen and provide a superb entertainment space and serve to bring the outside in throughout the summer months.

The long, central first floor landing leads to six double bedrooms, including the master suite, which benefits from a dressing area with an abundance of fitted wardrobes, and an en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and multi-jet shower with an integrated radio and sound system; the family bathroom has a rolltop bath. There is also a walk-in airing cupboard. The majority of rooms have views over the well-established gardens.

Woodcote Lodge is situated in a lovely rural location on the edge of Denton and close to the popular village of Barham, where a range of local amenities – including a well-regarded primary school - are to be found. Nearby Canterbury provides excellent schooling as well as shopping and leisure facilities.

The A2 provides good communications to Canterbury, the M2, London and beyond, as well as the Channel ports. The A260 provides easy access to Folkestone, the M20 and Channel Tunnel terminal.

High Speed trains to London St Pancras are available from Canterbury West and Folkestone in about 57 minutes and Ashford International in 37 minutes.

The wonderfully private grounds have been cleverly separated into different sections to make the most of the land. The principal garden is accessed from the rear and has a brick-built double BBQ grill stand. To the left is a tennis court with a storage shed, and also a small orchard with apples, pears, plums and cherries. A strip of land at the rear has far reaching countrywide views.

A double garage is adjacent to the house, with a spiral staircase leading down to an underground bar/lounge and wine cellar; a useful store room sits above the garage. A gravel drive provides good turning space and parking for several cars; there is access from the lane via double rust free aluminium gates.
