A handsome village house in a secluded setting, providing versatile accommodation over three floors, with extensive gardens and grounds. The living accommodation includes a substantial sitting room with large recessed fireplace housing an open fire. It enjoys dual aspect, front and rear, and to the side opens into a glazed garden room which, in turn, overlooks and opens onto the garden. The dining room also has dual aspect with adjoining study area having a door to the garden. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of wall, drawer and floor units and features granite work surfaces. There is an adjoining utility room, which also accesses the garden. On the first floor is a large master bedroom suite spanning the depth of the house incorporating the bedroom and large ensuite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms plus the family bathroom. On the second floor are two additional double bedrooms both with pleasant views over the gardens and grounds. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazed windows.
From the road, vehicular access is gained to a five bar gate and drive reaching a central parking and turning area and access to the double garage building with workshop. The garage has an up and over door, power and light and a window to the rear. Adjoining the garage is a separate workshop with power and light. The building has a pitch and tiled roof. Adjacent to the workshop is a covered brick recess housing the oil tank, which stands on a brick and concrete plinth. The property is set in delightful mature gardens and grounds, which extend to the front, sides and rear of the house. The gardens principally comprise lawns with inset mature beds which are well stocked with a variety of ground covering plants, flowering plants, shrubbery and small trees. Within the lawns are an impressive array of mature trees including substantial oaks, beech, chestnut, silver birch, cherry and a variety of conifers. There are more densely wooded areas towards the front and side boundaries. Adjacent to the side of the house is a paved seating area with access from the garden room. The boundaries are enclosed by a mix of stock wire and post and rail fencing. The plot is an irregular shape and we understand the site amounts to approximately 2.25 acres (0.91 hectares), as yet unverified.
The property enjoys a secluded location in the delightful, small village of Wootton. Wootton is set to the South of Canterbury and enjoys a thriving community with a number of village facilities including a picturesque cricket ground. The outlying countryside provides lovely walking, cycling and riding. The nearby village of Denton has a popular public house, the Jackdaw, and to the North, the village of Barham has a local shop and highly regarded primary school. Broome Park Country Club provides a quality golf course and a range of other sporting and leisure pursuits. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is easily accessible and offers extensive facilities including a wide range of schools. The channel ports of Dover and Folkestone provide regular services to the continent. High speed rail services are available from Folkestone, Ashford and Canterbury to London St Pancras.
