A stunning Grade II listed detached period village house understood to date from circa 1520. The property is set in its own grounds close to the centre of Petham village with easy access to Stone Street and south Canterbury. The house offers spacious, versatile and atmospheric accommodation, boasting exposed timbers and attractive fireplaces. On the ground floor there are two principal reception rooms, the sitting room featuring a wood burning stove and the dining room having an impressive inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke range of units and an oil-fired Aga. The property has been extended to the side, providing what is currently used as a studio/music room but could easily make a family room or home office. On the first floor are four bedrooms plus the family bathroom and useful walk-in dressing room/store.
Externally the property is approached by double five-bar gates onto a gravelled driveway, which passes the house and provides parking and turning. The drive then extends further reaching the detached double garage which measures approximately 20ft (6.09m) x 18ft (5.48m). Opposite the garage is a timber garden shed. The gardens to the side include a kitchen garden with greenhouse and pond beyond which are formals lawns with mature beds. The main garden lies to the rear of the house comprising formal lawn, paved seating areas and mature beds well stocked with a variety of ground covering plants, flowering plants, shrubbery and small trees.
