Roods Meadow is situated in a rural location on a little used country lane just off Pay Street between Densole and Acrise. There is easy access to the south to Hawkinge village with immediate links to the A20 & M20 within close proximity of the Port of Dover and Eurotunnel. The A2 lies to the north via the A260 giving access to Canterbury and beyond. High speed HS1 trains are available at Dover, Folkestone, and Ashford.
The house is believed to date back to the 1930’s and has been the seller’s home for about the last 50 years or so. The house now requires some modernisation or renovation or has the potential to be extended, subject to planning.
The white goods in the kitchen including the washing machine, fridge, cooker and microwave will be included in the sale.
The house is approached along its own drive off the main entrance which leads to the garage/workshop and the side garden which includes a small tool/potting shed. The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn. In the rear garden are 2 greenhouses, one of which is dilapidated, and a polytunnel.
These are located off the main entrance drive and include:
1) Former farm workshop about 33’8 x 18’10
2) The remains of 2 former piggery buildings, which are in the corner of the first field.
The land is divided into 2 good sized pasture fields which are both mainly level. They are both bounded on 2 sides by woodland. The back field also appears to include a small area of Cobham’s Rough wood. The 2 grass fields are capable of subdivision to create smaller fields/paddocks if needed.
There is a trackway along the south eastern boundary of the property which is part of the ownership but outside the field boundary. This is known as 'Cobham Rough Lane, Paddlesworth’ and is a public highway which is maintained at public expense by KCC Highways. However, it has been blocked off at the Pay Street end to restrict access for vehicles.
There are 2 footpaths crossing the property. Footpath HE115 crosses the first field in a diagonal direction before entering Cobham’s Rough wood. Footpath HE236 is fenced off from the property and runs along the north east boundary before entering the woodland.
All planning enquiries must be directed to the planning department at Folkestone & Hythe District Council (folkestone-hythe.gov.uk)
