Tenure: Freehold

A substantial, stylish and beautifully presented Grade II listed 17th century barn conversion with landscaped gardens extending to a total of almost half an acre with private driveway and extensive garaging, backing onto apple orchards in a rural position on the North Downs, south west of the Cathedral city of Canterbury.

The property is believed to have been converted during the 1980s with more recent improvements carried out by the present owner to create a stunning mixture of contemporary conveniences and beautiful original features with a wealth of exposed timbers throughout.

The property is equally suited to entertaining and working from home with extensive and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors comprising a large reception hallway, inner hall, downstairs cloakroom, stunning principle drawing room with vaulted 19'2" (5.84m) ceiling, exposed timber structural beams and wood burning stove, dining room, bespoke fitted kitchen, utility room, study, ground floor guest bedroom suite including luxury en-suite shower room, galleried landing overlooking the drawing room, master bedroom suite including twin dressing rooms and luxury bathroom, two further double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Externally, the property enjoys landscaped gardens extending to 0.445 of an acre with a large driveway to the front accessed by an electric five bar gate and a delightfully pretty rear garden with lawns, patios and pond with gravelled areas, studio and triple garage with roller shutter doors. The rear garden backs onto apple orchards and provides lovely views over surrounding countryside.

The property sits in a rural position on the outskirts of the village of Old Wives Lees, a popular close-knit semi-rural village sitting proudly on the North Downs in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and situated some 5.6 miles south west of the Cathedral city of Canterbury with its vast array of shopping and leisure facilities and countrywide public transport connections.

Local rail services are available at nearby Selling (1.5 miles) for travel to Canterbury and London Victoria or Chilham (1.9 miles) for travel to Canterbury and Ashford International with its fast 37 minute service to London St Pancras or travel to the Continent.

Character properties such as this rarely appear on the open market and we strongly advise interested applicants to make arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
