Situated off a quiet no through road and thence off a long private drive, Ileden Farmhouse has one of the most outstanding rural locations close to Canterbury. Set in a gently undulating landscape with a handful of cottages and various other farm buildings nearby, the house is by no means isolated yet enjoys a sense of seclusion and privacy.

Dating from the mid-18th century, this handsome red brick Georgian farmhouse is Grade II Listed, and is now in need of refurbishment. The current owners have spent considerable time and expenditure in gaining planning consent for a significant extension to the rear of the house creating an enlarged kitchen and incorporating the outbuilding into the main body of the house. Sadly, an overseas posting has not enabled the vendors to commence the project, hence the sale of the house.

Currently the house has three good sized reception rooms, a large kitchen and a utility room on the ground floor, and five bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. When completed the house will provide:

5 Reception rooms
Kitchen
Conservatory
Cloakroom
6 Bedrooms
4 Bathrooms

Full plans of the proposed work are available
for inspection on the Canterbury City Council
website. This is an exciting project with forward
thinking architectural plans by award winning
firm Purcells. The finished property will be one
of the finest period houses in the region, and
greatly enhanced by the wonderful location.

Ileden is situated in a lovely rural location off the A2 to the south-east of Canterbury and on the outskirts of Kingston village, where there is a thriving community, with a public house and church. The adjoining villages of Bridge and Barham have shops and primary schools, with Canterbury providing a broad range of educational, leisure and shopping facilities.

Canterbury offers two stations with access to the High Speed service to London St Pancras (taking about 56 minutes) as well as stopping services to London Victoria and Charing Cross. The area has good access to the Continent.

The gardens have a “park like” feel to them with beautiful mature trees in a lightly wooded landscape. There are lovely views across adjoining open countryside on three sides. At the top of the garden is a timber framed period barn - also in need of improvement.
