A unique Grade II listed period former farmhouse in an exceptional location on the edge of central Canterbury. The property boasts atmospheric accommodation with a wealth of charm and character and would now benefit from some general updating and modernisation. The house offers versatile accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor are two principle reception rooms, a dining room with exposed brick flooring and impressive fireplace and a large sitting room with open fireplace and windows to the front and side. There is also a small separate study to the side. The kitchen is to the rear and adjoins a large walk-in pantry. There is a downstairs w/c and a useful utility room. On the first floor are two large bedrooms, both adjoining the bathroom. On the second floor is a further large bedroom with windows to front and rear, configured into two distinct areas around the central chimney breast and could potentially be divided to provide two rooms if required. There is also a substantial cellar with access from the dining room and a window to the front providing natural light. The property benefits from gas fired heating. Chain free.
Vehicular access is gained from the road onto a gravel driveway providing parking and access to the detached garage. The garage measures approximately 23.6 ft (7.2m) by 12ft (3.7m) with double timber doors to front, pedestrian door to rear and windows to side and rear. From the pavement a pedestrian gate leads onto a brick path reaching the front door and extending to the side and rear of the house. The front garden comprises lawns with well stocked boarders, a further path gives direct access to the driveway. To the front boundary is mature hedging and trees. The rear garden measures approximately 51ft (15.5m) by 76ft (23.2m) (max) with an attractive seating area and lawn with well stocked mature beds. There is a screened composting area and fruit and vegetable garden to the rear of the garage. The garden is enclosed by a mixture of solid brick walls and wood-panel fencing.
