Full description

A very special extended country cottage providing comprehensive and delightfully presented accommodation in an enviable rural setting. There are three reception rooms including the sitting room to the front, with an exposed brick fireplace, and the dining room which features a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is most impressive and includes a part-vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers. To the rear the large family room overlooks and opens onto the garden. There is also a utility room, shower/wc and attractive hall. On the first floor are four bedrooms, two of which command fine views over the neighbouring farmland, and the family bathroom which features a roll-top, ball and claw foot bath. The property enjoys a host of period features and benefits from oil fired central heating.
Externally the south facing garden bordered by woodland includes a large paved seating area and lawn with well-stocked mature beds, soft fruit bushes and borders. To the side is a chicken enclosure, beyond which is the garden Studio Room. The Studio Room has electricity supply and wall mounted electric radiators, timber flooring, part-vaulted ceiling and some loft storage space. To the front of the house is an area for parking. In addition to the property a beautifully restored traditional Showman's Wagon is available by separate negotiation, which could be used as a ?glamping? holiday let facility.

The property is set in beautiful countryside just outside the village of Lower Hardres which has a comprehensive Farm Shop and highly regarded pub and restaurant, The Granville. The surrounding farmland and countryside offers lovely walking and cycling. South Canterbury is easily accessible with facilities including the Simon Langton Grammar Schools, Kent and Canterbury and Chaucer Hospitals and Kent County Cricket Ground. Canterbury offers a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities, schools, colleges and universities. The City is served by two mainline railway stations with the high speed services available from Canterbury West to London St. Pancras with a journey time of approx. 55 mins.
