Located in the popular Ball Lane, Clyde House is a very appealing period house that offers characterful accommodation presented in a very sympathetic manner. There is a particularly elegant feel about the property that is evident immediately, and is part of its charm and appeal.

A wide entrance vestibule leads to the principal reception rooms. The light and bright drawing room to the right has a feature brick wall, an open brick fireplace and double doors leading to the outside; it is a perfect room for entertaining. To the left is an equally bright, double aspect dining room and from here a short passageway leads directly into the spacious farmhouse kitchen, the heart of this attractive home. The kitchen is fitted with plenty of "old pine" storage cupboards and there is ample space for a large table and chairs to allow for informal entertaining. A useful vestibule off the kitchen leads to the outside. Beyond the kitchen is a short passageway leading to a ground floor bathroom and a boiler room.

Stairs rise from the hall to a generous landing with lovely pine panelling to dado height. The master bedroom is a sunny, double aspect room with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is another double aspect room flooded with light. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom five is currently arranged as a study.

Clyde House is in a quiet location on the outskirts of Kennington. Kennington itself has a public house, general store, post office, doctors' surgery and dental surgery.

The nearby market town of Ashford provides a good range of educational, shopping and recreational facilities, together with excellent transport links. Canterbury has a further wide range of leisure, cultural and educational facilities.

The M20 provides excellent road access. Ashford International offers the High Speed train service to London St Pancras in 37 minutes, as well as Eurostar services to the Continent.

Clyde House is approached over a long, gravelled drive that offers plenty of parking. The drive terminates in front of a very useful outbuilding that is arranged as a pair of garages, each with their own double doors and an adjoining store room. Above the garage, and approached via an external staircase, are two rooms that are currently used as a home office and occasional bedroom. Subject to planning consent, this area could be upgraded into a fully fledged annexe.

The property sits well in its garden with tall hedges giving a high level of privacy. The main garden is to the side and is principally terraced. A heated swimming pool, with adjacent pool house, offers a perfect platform for alfresco entertaining during the summer months. A useful garden shed is situated at one end of the garden.
