Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1 The Green is a landmark house in the centre of this pretty Kentish village. Dating from the 18th Century and earlier, the house offers light and elegant family accommodation.

The front door opens into a double reception room that extends across the front of the house, providing a spacious dining area to the left and a comfortable snug to the right arranged around a pretty fireplace. A wide arch opens to the newly fitted kitchen, and together these spaces create a generous and fluid living area.

The family/sitting room sits at the heart of the house, with a bay window overlooking the garden to the side. Steps descend to a garden room and the graceful library/music room, with tall ceilings and extensive fitted bookshelves. A passageway runs along the centre of the house, leading to a boot/utility room and the back door. It also gives access to a useful cellar.

On the first floor the large master bedroom is a bright room with a bay window and en-suite bathroom. The double aspect second bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has an en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms on this floor; the first with a cast iron fireplace and two sash windows, and the other with fitted wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom.

A staircase leads to the second floor where there are two further rooms, both with dormer windows. This floor also has two useful storage cupboards.

Littlebourne is an attractive and popular village to the east of the cathedral city of Canterbury, and offers a number of local amenities, including a post office, shop, primary school and a public house.

Canterbury provides further extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities, including two theatres and a new concert hall. There is a range of good schools in both the independent and state sectors, and two universities. A good bus service runs into Canterbury every 20 minutes throughout the day.

There are excellent commuter links, including the High Speed service to London St Pancras from Canterbury West, with journey times of under an hour.

The area has good access to the motorway network (the M2 and M20) via the A2 at Bridge, and the Continent is readily accessible via the Eurostar from Ashford International, the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone and the Port of Dover.

The garden at 1 The Green provides a very pretty setting for this delightful village house. The principal garden lies to the side of the house and is overlooked from the main reception rooms. An established hedge and brick walls provide good levels of privacy. A terraced area provides outdoor eating space and the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a variety of mature trees, flower beds and raised vegetable beds.

The garden is bisected by a wonderful period barn, with potential to provide further accommodation, subject to any necessary consents. A door from the barn opens to a walled courtyard.
