About 2 acres

Scooks Farmhouse is a delightful Victorian house set in a fantastic position with views over the surrounding countryside. The house has a wonderfully peaceful feel throughout, with large sash window providing plenty of light.

Approached through a large porch leading to a central entrance hall, a generous and elegant dining room sits to the right overlooking the garden to the side. To the back of the house is a double aspect sitting room with lovely views across the valley. A cast iron fireplace provides a focal point.

The kitchen and breakfast room are divided by the chimneystack, providing a separate yet loosely open-plan family space. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units with granite and wooden work surfaces. A tiled floor flows through to the breakfast room with plenty of space for a table. A useful cloakroom and utility room is located off the porch.

On the first floor three bright bedrooms, each with pretty cast iron fireplaces, provide good accommodation. The master bedroom has a dressing area leading through to an en-suite bathroom and there is also a family shower room.

The property is situated in a secluded rural location, surrounded by rolling countryside on the edge of the stunning Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the south of the ancient market town of Faversham, with its picturesque lanes, boutique shops, regular market and choice of restaurants and cafés.

The historic cathedral city of Canterbury, with its first class shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, is also close by. The north Kent coast is within easy reach, with the popular and fashionable town of Whitstable just nine miles to the northeast.

Mainline rail services are available in Faversham, offering easy access to London St. Pancras in around an hour, while the M2 is just over three miles away. The area has good access to the Continent.

A driveway from the lane leads through woodland to a parking area and turning circle to the front of the house and a double garage. The garage is a substantial brick building which may be suitable for a variety of alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents.

Scooks Farmhouse is surrounded by delightfully peaceful gardens. A paved terrace provides superb views across the gardens to the fields and woodland beyond. Lawns, interspersed with flowerbeds, shrubs and mature trees, create a lovely setting for the house. A beautifully set out vegetable garden with espalier fruit trees sits to the south west of the house; to the other side is a charming willow walk way.
