Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Close to Chilham in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this attractive Georgian farmhouse is a delight. The house is approached via electronic double gates and is surrounded by a paddock and beautiful gardens with a large gravelled driveway providing plenty of off road parking and flanked by an Elizabethan style box hedging garden. From the moment you walk inside you can appreciate the efforts made to enhance and modernise the house but also to retain many of the period features. There is a snug with exposed beams, a large inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove and an impressive Bressumer beam. Guests will enjoy a meal in the formal dining room with its brick fireplace and french enamelled wood burning stove, while you can relax in the elegant sitting room.

The beamed kitchen/breakfast room includes a granite topped island/breakfast bar, a black oil fired four oven Aga and pastel yellow bespoke units housing a variety of integrated appliances. There is access to the utility room, the terrace and a large garden room with a hot tub. You will also find a boot room and shower room on the ground floor plus two cellar rooms in the basement.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms and the family bathroom with a bath and separate steam generator double shower. The bedrooms include the master with triple aspect windows, a wall of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom and a guest room with an en suite shower and brick fireplace, while the galleried landing provides a delightful office area.

Outside there is a rear flagstone terrace, a covered barbecue area and a summerhouse overlooking a wildlife pond, together with a large lawn mostly surrounded by a flint and brick wall and a variety of mature trees and shrubs.

What the Owner says:

“We purchased the property in 2001 and spent two years completely renovating and refurbishing it including putting in a new roof, plumbing electrics, kitchen, bathrooms and creating the garden. We have loved living here but feel it is time to begin a new adventure in our lives. The surrounding countryside and Chilham village are delightful and we enjoy the convenience of being close to Canterbury and within easy reach of Ashford, Folkestone and Dover for access to London and the Continent as well as the coast."
