Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This magnificent Grade II Listed residence is surrounded by 3.45 acres of gardens, grounds and paddock. In 2005 a superb renovation and conservation project was undertaken to restore, extend and enhance the property to provide a truly luxurious home. As you sweep through the electronic wrought iron gates onto the long, tree lined driveway you glimpse the Flemish gables and mellow brick facade that gives the house such charm and character.

There is a Georgian staircase rising up from the welcoming entrance hall which leads to the sitting area with an archway to the main reception while the elegant dining room is the ideal place for formal entertaining. If you want a quiet read there is a good sized snug and the children can relax in the family area.

This property is built around a beautiful courtyard that you can view and access from the impressive dining hall with its large archway through to the contemporary country style kitchen incorporating a central island, range cooker, integrated appliances and access to the laundry room. For extra storage additional rooms are available on the lower ground floor including a wine cellar. There are three offices and a cloakroom as well as a games room, gym, changing rooms, a covered recreation/al fresco dining area and an outdoor barbecue and terrace surrounding the heated swimming pool.

The first floor has a family bathroom and five double bedrooms. These include two en suite guest rooms and the master with its own bathroom and large dressing room/additional bedroom. The second floor incorporates three bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen so could make ideal staff quarters. Beyond the games room on the ground floor is a large annex with a kitchen, bathroom, lounge and three double bedrooms, two of which have en-suites.

Sweeping lawns surround the property interspersed with trees and shrubs together with flower borders, a walled kitchen garden, a 1.75 acre paddock and the gravel frontage providing off road parking.

What the Owner says:

“This amazing property was in a somewhat parlous state as it had previously been used as a nursing home for nearly 20 years. However the current owners decided they would bring it back to its former glory so that once again it would become a very special place and the results have been fantastic. It has been a wonderful home to live in and entertain friends and family but the sellers feel it is now time to pass the baton on to new owners who they hope will enjoy it as much as they have. The hamlet of Bossington is charming and the property is close to the village of Adisham which includes a primary school that is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and a railway station as well as a livery stables for anyone interested in horses. You are only a short distance from the friendly village of Bridge with its three pubs including two with very good restaurants as well as a variety of useful shops such as a baker, butcher, small supermarket, health centre, chemist and equestrian outlet plus a dentist, hairdressers and gift shop. There is also an Outstanding primary school in Bridge and excellent private and grammar schools in Dover and Canterbury plus two universities and a further education college.
This property is only a few miles from Canterbury with its UNESCO world heritage site historic buildings, high street stores and individual shops, theatres, bars and restaurants as well as two mainline stations and the high speed rail that will get you to London within an hour. Cricket
