The Vendor's View - Living in the quiet village of Littlebourne is fantastic. The nearby amenities provide all we need for daily life, while we have quick access into Canterbury. We initially moved here for school catchment and the Polo Farm Sports complex (hockey, tennis and cricket) for our daughters and the access we have to both makes life very easy for us. The homely feeling of returning to the rural setting is something we have always loved about living here, despite being close to both the coast and city, it is so relaxing. There are plenty of routes for walking or cycling and having Howletts Wild Animal Park & Wingham Wildlife Park nearby was great when our children were younger.

We have completely refurbished, furnished and decorated our home since buying it in 2012, as the place was a little tired. Putting in new windows, doors, a new kitchen, bathrooms and fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms, helped to both modernise and make the best use out of the space. The large orangery room extension we added a couple of years later has been brilliant for entertaining family and friends. Our home has lots of versatile spaces for both being together and spending time independently, the large family/play room is great for the girls to be with their friends. When renovating we converted a downstairs bathroom into a larger utility space, while retaining a downstairs restroom.

Double doors lead out from the orangery onto the new patio where we host barbecues and it is a lovely spot to dine. The wrap-around garden is generously-sized with a gated driveway at the front, making it a safe and secure space for living and entertaining. To the side of the house we have refurbished a large fish pond with sandstone, crushed granite and a new filter system, to keep the water crystal clear. You feel secluded from the neighbouring properties, as we aren’t overlooked.

We are planning to downsize now, but this has been an ideal location and we have loved our family home. It will be difficult to find another property that ticks as many boxes as this does.
