Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious and well presented Victorian residence, set within approx. half an acre of beautiful and mature gardens in a secluded and rural setting. Prospect House has been subject to numerous improvements in recent years, including a substantial two storey rear extension, however it has managed to retain some lovely period features and much of its original character.

A double glazed front door opens into a pleasant entrance hall with oak flooring and stairs to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall is a family room with a lovely exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove, and to the left of the entrance hall there is a dual aspect dining room with oak flooring and a cast iron fireplace.

Beyond these two reception rooms, an inner hallway leads to the sitting room, the kitchen, a useful utility room and a ground floor bathroom. This has been beautifully fitted with a contemporary white suite and luxuriously finished with marble tiling.

The sitting room is a well proportioned dual aspect room, with an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden.

The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent range of wall and base units set around granite effect work surfaces and a range of stainless steel integrated appliances. The kitchen also enjoys a direct access to the rear garden via a set of double glazed French doors.

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and original cast iron fireplaces to the front of the house. To the rear of the first floor there is a small single bedroom, a well appointed family bathroom and the master bedroom. This has lovely views over the gardens and a recently refitted en suite shower room with a contemporary suite and stylish tiling throughout.


Prospect House sits within a generous plot which measures approx. half an acre, and is mainly laid to lawn and planted with a variety of mature trees, including several fruit trees and a lovely flowering magnolia tree, all of which provide a tremendous sense of privacy and seclusion for the garden.

A full width patio runs across the rear of the house and is shaded by a wonderful vine covered pergola. Adjacent to the patio is an area of decking with a raised circular swimming pool.

To the side of the property, a large gated driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to an open port garage and a 43 ft x 15 ft workshop. Whilst in need of some attention now, this vast outbuilding offers huge potential and could (subject to planning consent) be converted into a home office and gym, a guest annexe or perhaps even a holiday cottage.


Prospect House is situated on the Canterbury Road, just outside the village of Challock and adjacent to Kings Wood. These 1500 acres of ancient woodland contain a rich variety of flora and fauna including roaming herds of fallow deer, and provide a truly spectacular backdrop to this wonderfully rural property.

Challock is a picturesque and typically Kentish village, centred around the village Lees and situated high on the North Downs in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is conveniently situated close to both the A251 from Faversham to Ashford and the A252 from Canterbury to Maidstone.

The village is served by a well regarded primary school, a Post Office, The Barn Shop, a public house (The Halfway House) and an aquarium. The village has a strong sense of community, with many clubs and societies running from either the village’s Methodist chapel or the ancient Norman Church of Saint Comas and Saint Damian.

Other nearby villages include Charing (4 miles), Wye (4 miles) and Chilham (5 miles), all of which offer a good range of local services including shops, primary schools and railway stations.

From a wider range of amenities you have the market towns of Faversham (7 miles), Ashford (7 miles) and the Cathedral city of Canterbury (11 miles). Both Canterbury and Ashford offer a good selection of shopping and leisure facilities, private and state schools, hospitals and mainline stations with high speed links to London.
