Set in the charming quiet Downland village of Sutton, Church House is a lovely period home set opposite the picturesque parish church and adjoining similarly pretty and characterful period properties.

A long drive terminates next to the house where a gate opens in to the mainly walled garden. The central front door leads in to a welcoming hall from where all the principal rooms are accessed. To the right is the drawing room, which has a real sense of peace and tranquillity, a place to retreat to from the hubbub of the family! The study is opposite.

To the rear of the house is the fantastic “double” kitchen/dining room. Facing due south the room is flooded with light and has doors directly onto the garden. Skilfully styled, the kitchen has a wonderful “unfitted” feel to it merging effortlessly with the adjoining dining room. This is a superb entertaining space either for “family get togethers” or just a relaxing Sunday together. Beyond the dining room is a snug/sitting room. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a really useful boot room, with an adjoining utility/shower room.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom is a lovely bright room overlooking the garden to the front. The guest bedroom is similarly spacious and overlooks the front, and has an adjoining bedroom off it. The family bathroom is set at the end of a passageway. The second floor comprises two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Set on rising ground the house has a lovely southerly aspect over adjoining countryside. The main area of formal garden is to the front and is principally walled with wide herbaceous and shrub beds on three sides. To the side of the house is an area of paddock. The rear garden is divided into two areas. Immediately to the rear of the house is a charming enclosed sitting area, with box and yew hedging providing structure and interest. The remaining space is given over to informal lawned areas interspersed with varieties of productive fruit trees.

At the bottom of the garden and adjoining the driveway is a useful detached outbuilding, which is currently arranged as a garden store room and a pair of loose boxes.

Sutton is a village in unspoilt countryside located in the triangle of Sandwich, Canterbury and Dover, all of which provide a broad range of cultural, leisure and shopping amenities, together with excellent educational facilities.

Stations at Martin Mill and Dover Priory provide connections to London, offering services to St Pancras in just over an hour. The A2 gives access to the M2 and the remaining motorway network, and the property has good access to the Continent.
