Property description

Tenure: Freehold

If stunning views, village life and even a self-contained annexe are top of your list of dreams for your new home then this charming, detached family home in Lydden has it all. As you turn into the spacious, gated driveway you can appreciate the front of the house has charming kerb appeal with its white painted exterior and diamond pane windows. Once inside you are immediately drawn to the French doors at the end of the hallway where you see uninterrupted views across the rolling hills of the Lydden and Temple Ewell Nature Reserve.

Believed to be about 100 years old the house retains some charming period features such as exposed beams in many of the rooms including in the attractive dining area that has a wide arch to the country style kitchen with its pine units and range cooker. Amtico tiling flows through much of the house and there are steps down to a utility room with doors to the veranda and the garage. The living room includes a multifuel burner and French doors to the vast, glass fronted veranda. This floor also has a large study and a family bathroom while there is another bathroom on the first floor as well as four double bedrooms including the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a Juliette balcony.

The entrance to the annexe is via its own private courtyard. It has an open plan living area with access to the double bedroom and steps up to the fitted kitchen and bathroom. The rear garden backs onto the nature reserve and includes lawns together with a variety of gorgeous shrubs and trees, a summerhouse and storage sheds while hard standing at the front provides off road parking.

What the Owner says:

“I have lived here for some 36 years and have always taken great pleasure in being in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Not only because of the stunning views but also because it is very quiet and most of the time all we hear at home is the singing of the birds in the garden. Indeed, creating the garden from a ‘blank canvas' has been a real labour of love and it will be a wrench to leave but I am going to move nearer to my daughter. Building the annex extension has been extremely useful and my son lived there for a number of years so it is ideal for family members.

There are great places to go for walks along permitted MOD land and it is very convenient as the local primary school is very close and the buses stop every 20 minutes in either direction. It is only about two minutes' drive to the A 2 for Canterbury and London or Dover Docks and the Channel Tunnel for the Continent while petrol heads can enjoy motor racing at the Lydden Hill circuit. Sailors can join the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club while golfers have a variety of choices from the Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club to the Championship courses at Sandwich and Deal. Nearby Temple Ewell has a post office and convenience store and it is not far to Tescos and a retail park”.
