Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Broad Oak Farm is a substantial Grade II listed property lying to the north-east of the city of Canterbury. Set well back from the village street, and at the end of a long drive flanked by an avenue of conifers, the house is understood to date to the 18th century. Later additions have resulted in the creation of a very spacious home of great quality.

Internally the house has many features consistent with the Arts and Craft style. Excellent reception rooms of very generous proportions have beautiful herringbone parquet flooring, distinctive brick fireplaces and plentiful windows allowing good levels of light.

The front door opens to a beamed reception hall, either side of which is a dining room with a wide bay window to the front and a study. The splendid drawing room overlooks the lawns to the back of the house, as does the kitchen/ breakfast room. A side entrance provides useful day-to-day access to the rear hall, off which is a utility room.

On the first floor, three of the four principal bedrooms sit to the front of the house and are approached from a wide landing. The master bedroom has a deep bay window and is located opposite a very generous shower room. There is a further family bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Three further rooms are found on the second floor, where exposed beams demonstrate that they occupy the older portion of the house.

A detached building adjacent to the drive provides garaging and additional accommodation in the form of a two bedroom annexe with a kitchen/sitting room.

The property is situated in Broad Oak village to the north-east of Canterbury. The village has a well-regarded pub and nearby Sturry provides a range of local shops and a railway station, as well as being home to Junior King’s School. Canterbury itself offers a wide array of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities, together with an excellent range of educational facilities.

There are excellent rail and road communications in the area. The High Speed train service to London St Pancras is available from Canterbury West station, taking just under an hour. The A299 to the north and the A2 from Canterbury provide direct access to the motorway network.

Ashford International and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone provide regular Eurostar and Shuttle services to the Continent.

A long drive flanked by lawns provides an impressive approach to the house which is well set in the middle of its plot. The drive provides plenty of parking. A low brick wall runs across the front of the house with pretty brick paths bordered with clipped box hedging.

A delightful, partly walled, garden arranged around an ornamental pond with a charming garden shelter is found to the side of the house. There is a terrace behind the house and a rose-covered pergola gives structure to the formal gardens. Lawns stretch away from the house interspersed with shrub beds and mature trees.

To the far end of the garden is a swimming pool and a pool house
