Set in the ever popular village of Ickham, Fern Cottage epitomises the charm and style of English village life. Substantially renovated by the current owner, the house offers sophisticated yet relaxed living.

The hallway is set to the left of the front door, off which is the cloakroom. To the right of the front door is a charming snug, with double aspect over the side and front of the house. There is a door down to a useful cellar, currently a store room. Beyond the hall is a lovely bright and well fitted kitchen breakfast room. With a wide door to the garden the room is flooded with light.

A bespoke handmade kitchen by Thoroughly Wood offers plenty of stylish and well-designed storage. From either end of the room double doors lead respectively in to the conservatory and the drawing room. The drawing room is wonderfully calm and tranquil with double doors overlooking the garden. An open fireplace with a fitted wood burner is the focal point of the room with fitted cupboards and shelves to one side. Adjoining and reached through a second set of double doors is the conservatory - a lovely room for entertaining or relaxing in.

Upstairs the master bedroom is at the back of the house and overlooks the garden. There is a generous and beautifully fitted en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor.

Ickham is a picturesque village on the outskirts of Canterbury. The village has a public house and a church whilst neighbouring Wickhambreaux has a highly regarded primary school. Canterbury provides a broad range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities and the nearby villages of Littlebourne and Wingham offer day-to-day amenities.

There are excellent road and rail links with access to the A2 at Bridge (3.5 miles) and the High Speed service to London St Pancras from Canterbury West taking just under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.

As with the house the gardens have had significant investment made on them. A large terrace with a wooden pergola is set to one side of the house. Beyond is a mature, box-hedged knot garden with lovely varieties of old English roses planted within. From here steps lead up to the level lawn with symmetrically planted yew trees. The house is swathed in old fashioned climbing roses, giving a riot of colour in mid-summer.

There is a detached garage.
