The Six Bells is a superb Georgian house situated amongst open countryside to the north-east of Canterbury. Dating to the early 1830s, and once a public house, the property now provides a wonderful family home offering fantastic living space.

The main double reception room stretches across the front of the house and is flooded with light through large sash windows. The room has two wood burning stoves with a third open fire found in the adjoining dining room. A spacious kitchen/breakfast room is arranged around an Aga and has plenty of space for a good sized table. French doors lead outside and adjacent is a useful utility room. A study with a further wood burning stove sits to one end of the house. The extensive cellars, accessed via two staircases, provide the most useful extra space and are currently used as a sewing workshop.

Upstairs the two principal bedrooms are of an excellent size, the master having high, vaulted ceilings and the second wood-panelled walls. Bedroom three has an en-suite shower room and is currently divided into two with a staircase leading to bedroom five on the second floor. The remaining bedroom overlooks the garden and overall the accommodation offers excellent flexibility and space.

The coastal towns of Herne Bay (5 miles) and Whitstable (9.5 miles) are within easy reach, with extensive educational, shopping and leisure facilities being found in Canterbury. There are primary schools in nearby Chislet and Hoath

Transport links are good, with the A28 and A299 connecting with the M2. Rail services to London are available from Herne Bay and Canterbury with Canterbury West offering a High Speed service to St Pancras in under an hour. The Eurotunnel and Ashford International (both within 30 miles) provide services to the Continent.

The house is set behind a picket fence and a five bar gate gives access to an extensive parking area.

The garden is divided into various attractive areas. Behind the house a deck, accessed from the kitchen, gives way to a lawn, across from which another deck provides a further seating/dining area.

There is a large block paved terrace and the garden is bordered by mature hedging and planted with shrub and flower borders. There are raised vegetable beds and a further kitchen garden and chicken run. Adjacent to the drive is an area currently used as a goat pen.
