Already a home that pays its way, there is phenomenal opportunity here for the creative mind to develop.
Even when you know a home is going to impress you, it's still a wonderful feeling to turn up and have your breath taken away. Here the sensation begins as you drive through the countryside to your destination. Whichever direction you arrive from, you will have driven past glorious Kentish landscapes.
As you realise, during this drive, just how close Canterbury is, how easy it is to be on the seafront at Dover, Folkestone, Deal or Hythe and for those who love riding, how good the hacking is here, well this is somewhere that has probably already captured your heart and imagination.
Once you begin to look around the love affair is sealed. What really impresses us is how this home blends history and character with the things we all want in our modern lives. It is a home in which you can truly enjoy yourself. It is also somewhere that can pay for itself and the future potential is rather exciting to go beyond that.
The Grade II listed home has reputed links back to the Knights of St John and, in this quiet rural spot, life feels as if time has passed by. Renowned for its sunsets and sunrises, this is a location where you can stand and believe the world is a quieter and simpler place.
Explore inside and you will find delightful fireplaces, brick and stonework, beams and doorways, all hearkening back in time. Just around the corner are more expansive rooms, space to spread out with the family, a superb section leading through the games room to gym and swimming pool complex. Above this is a self-contained apartment, ideal for family, for staff or for letting out.
Two holiday cottages, Pips Lodge and Pixie Lodge are in demand continually we are told and with parking and their own garden space they make for a superb holiday destination. Let with use of the spa and gym facilities, it is easy to understand why a 'get away' to such an idyllic location is sought after.
Stables provide a thriving livery income and with almost six acres in total, including a menage and, as we've already mentioned, with super hacking locally, this is a property that provides so much opportunity. Speaking of which, our clients have considered adding a third holiday cottage, planning permission required of course and there is the choice of what to do with the 'cottage' in the grounds, a project with all sorts of possibilities.
We see this home suiting so many people. For a large family, perhaps multi generational, this could be the dream setting. For anyone looking to run bed and breakfast, to continue the holiday let aspect or an entrepreneur planning themed holidays, writing retreats, art groups, cookery courses, almost anything you can imagine, here is a stunning place to begin.
Of course, it is a perfect place to move to if you just want to find some peace and quiet near the coast and still work in London.Get in touch if you like this home.
