Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Whatever you are looking for in a beautiful Grade II listed property you will find at this property. Tucked away down a private lane this delightful rural idyll offers something for everyone. If you want to generate income there are two beautifully designed and fitted holiday homes. If leisure and pleasure are top of your list then the gorgeous bar and games room, well fitted gym, heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi hot tub and sauna will keep you happy all day. If you have a horse mad family member or you are looking to develop the ‘good life' there is a paddock at the bottom of the garden where you could keep a pony or chickens, sheep, goats or alpacas. But above all if you want to live in a house that is full of charm and delightful period features and enjoy the peace and quiet of a secluded area, this property has it all. Walking under the attractive porch and into the lovely lounge with its beams and inglenook fireplace you immediately feel the warmth and friendly feeling the house engenders. Although it still retains wonderful old features it has been sensitively renovated to provide a home for modern day living. There is a stunning contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with a built in double oven and microwave, induction hob, dishwasher and breakfast bar and a nearby utility room and cloakroom as well as a separate dining area for more formal occasions with a fascinating brick and flint wall. A separate staircase leads from the dining room to a private double bedroom that would also make an excellent office if you want to work from home undisturbed but still be available. Up the main staircase you will find a galleried landing with old panels on the walls leading to three double bedrooms. All of these have en suite showers including the master with its fitted wardrobes and attractive views. Outside there is a delightful brick patio with a well water feature and a covered loggia for outdoor entertaining. This leads to a large lawn that backs on to the paddock and surrounded by farmland. The garden includes a superb tree house for the children and a separate garden house that is currently laid out with a sitting room and area for a kitchen as well as a double bedroom.

What the Owner says:

“We fell in love with the tranquil and secluded surroundings as well as the gorgeous house itself. As builders we were delighted to have the opportunity to renovate such a special house and also upgrade the holiday lets which produce an excellent income and are always fully occupied. Indeed, we even have a 25 per cent occupancy booked for next year so anyone buying the property would already have an ongoing business should they wish it to continue. At the same time it is very much a home for leisure activities, whether it is having friends round for a meal, a barbecue and a swim or an evening in the well fitted bar enjoying a drink and playing pool. Although we are in a village the location it is also an extremely convenient location because if you need to commute to London you can be at Folkestone West station within a few minutes for the high speed train to St Pancras, while it is simple to get to the Eurotunnel or Dover docks for the Continent and shopping facilities are easily accessible in Folkestone and Dover. There are excellent private and grammar schools in Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury while the primary school in River has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.”
