Longacre is a wonderful family home that has been in the same ownership for over 50 years that is now in need of some refurbishment. Situated in the favoured Perry Wood area of Selling, it enjoys both woodland and open aspects. The south facing gardens surrounding the house have been carefully created and provide a most special setting.

A generous, triple aspect sitting room and a large dining room are set either side of a staircase hall. The kitchen is at the rear, with utility and porch beyond. A conservatory is sited to take advantage of the best views of the garden. An integrated garage completes the ground floor, and may be suitable for incorporation into the main accommodation, subject to any necessary consents.

The original house has been extended, and now offers five bedrooms on the first floor, with a central family bathroom and an en-suite shower room. The bedrooms all enjoy interesting views.

The house has been well looked after but would now benefit from some updating and provides a rare opportunity to establish a family home in a highly favoured location.

Longacre is situated in a glorious rural location on the edge of Perry Wood, which has almost 150 acres of stunning plantation and native woodland. Selling is a dispersed village comprised of several smaller centres. Local amenities include a primary school, three public houses and a station on the Canterbury to London line (via Faversham). Ashford International provides the High Speed service to St Pancras (37 minutes) as well as services to the Continent. The A2/M2 can be accessed nearby (about 3 miles) and provide links to the motorway network. Faversham and Canterbury provide an extensive range of local amenities and good schools.

Longacre is set back from a quiet lane, and has beautiful, well-tended gardens; it is surrounded on two sides by Perry Wood. There are a number of mature trees around the boundary, and sheds and greenhouses within the garden.
