Petham House is amongst the very finest country homes to come to the market within a short distance of the Cathedral City of Canterbury. This fine Grade II listed house which extends to over 10,000 sq ft is well situated on high ground and enjoys fine views from the principal rooms across its own park where magnificent specimen trees frame the views of the rolling countryside.

The house is approached through a grand staircase hall where a cantilevered staircase rises to a generous galleried landing. The principal reception rooms are situated on the south side of the house and enjoy the best views through large full height sash windows. The drawing room and dining room adjoin and cater for entertaining on a generous scale. The morning room is a more intimate family space and all have fine fire surrounds, very high ceilings and period mouldings and other decorations.

A kitchen with aga, breakfast room and conservatory and domestic offices complete the main accommodation; the former servants hall to the west of the house has been adapted to a generous garden room or games room with kitchen and shower room adjacent. It could be used as an annexe or for staff.

The four principal bedrooms are approached off the main landing, and there are three generously sized bathrooms here. A fifth bedroom is accessed from the second staircase (the intercommunicating corridor could readily be reinstated). On the lower ground floor are the utility room, office, gym and a further sitting room all of very generous proportions.

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.

The sweeping lawns surround the house which is approached over a long private driveway. Post and rail fencing divides the gardens from the park beyond.

There are numerous specimen trees and flower and shrub borders, and a pathway leads to the walled garden, which is impeccably planted with fruit and vegetables, with a generous central potting shed and greenhouses. This might be considered suitable for the installation of a pool or tennis court if so desired.

LOT 2 - The Parkland

The parkland beyond is currently grazed by sheep under an agreement with a local farmer.
