‘Little Ruckinge Farm’ is found within a desirable semi-rural location nestled between the thriving cathedral city of Canterbury and the fast ‘up-and-coming’ seaside town of Herne Bay.

The property itself has been restored over recent years with an abundance of period features that include exposed timbers and beams throughout, log burners and original wooden floor boards. The property also benefits from complete rewiring and updated central heating throughout.

Two reception rooms are found on the ground floor with a modernized farmhouse style kitchen and a downstairs bathroom. Two large bedrooms are found on the first floor whilst a third bedroom and additional loft room with restricted access occupy the third floor.

Extensive off-road parking is provided via the walled driveway to the front of the property and there are 3 separate access gates further along the plot.

Backing onto picturesque rolling countryside, this property is perfect for those looking for a rural lifestyle with everyday convenience just minutes away.

Due to increased demand for housing and further planned development for Herne Bay, the land may offer the potential for development. This would be subject to necessary planning and building consents being obtained.
