Settle House is an immaculately presented, early Victorian village house which has been beautifully refurbished and extended over recent years. The accommodation now offers a wonderful family home, the hub of which is a stylish kitchen which occupies a sympathetically crafted extension merged seamlessly with the character of the original house, built in approximately 1841.

Arranged around a central island and with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, the kitchen opens to the garden via a wall of bi-folding doors. Off the kitchen is a utility room and a useful study. Steps rise linking the kitchen to a snug and a dining room which combine to create the type of loosely open plan, sociable space so sought after for day-to-day family life. Across the entrance hall a generous triple aspect sitting room provides a more formal reception space with an open fireplace.

Arranged over three floors, the property has four bedrooms. The large master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, whilst the remaining two bedrooms on the first floor share a family bathroom. The lower ground floor offers a further en-suite bedroom, providing excellent guest accommodation and having separate access to the garden.

The picturesque village of Petham benefits from a primary school, church and active community village hall. The surrounding countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing a lovely environment for walking, riding and cycling.

Canterbury offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. In particular, there is a good range of educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors.
The A2 provides direct dual carriageway access onto the motorway network and Canterbury West station provides High Speed services to London St Pancras in under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.

Occupying a large plot in the heart of Petham and set back from the road behind wrought iron railings, Settle House enjoys stunning views across surrounding countryside. The property has off-street parking on a gravel drive to the side with a garage and open carport.

The good sized garden has been thoughtfully landscaped and planted to compliment the house having an established rose parterre and herbaceous borders as well as a wild flower area. An extensive slate terrace sits directly behind the house with a path leading to a further split-level terrace facing south west. There is a good expanse of lawn and a garden shed.
