This is a home that makes life easy to live; it has a modern flow, a touch of tradition, a little intrigue and lots of space!
Wye, a small town or grown up village, however you see it, this lovely medieval Kent location has always intrigued and delighted people.
Sitting within an area of outstanding natural beauty, it offers a perfect balance between rural life and village convenience, a lifestyle that provides community spirit, charm and fun.
Set in the heart of the village, this home puts you right in the centre of that lovely rural life, one that offers so much that we long for.
You can get up in the morning and stroll around the corner to grab a paper, pop into the butchers for some bacon and a chat, pick up a fresh loaf of bread from the baker or step into a coffee shop and sit and enjoy a moment there.
There are fantastic rural rambles you can explore, you are in an area of outstanding natural beauty after all and, whether you just wander down to the river and sit in the delightful garden of The Tickled Trout, walk up to the Wye Crown to enjoy the view from a chalk landmark (created by students of the former agricultural college, made to celebrate the 1902 coronation of King Edward the VII), or you explore any number of fabulous walks, this is somewhere from which you can occupy endless hours and feel like the normal hustle and bustle of life is far away from you.
It is the simplicity with which you can enter the wider, busier world from here that makes this oasis so appealing.
Walk down to the station and a train takes you to the Cathedral City of Canterbury, a simple drive if you prefer. The ever-growing town of Ashford is close by too and High-Speed trains can be caught from either of these main stations.
So much for the location, what of this semi detached home? We love the fact that it is an older house that provides a very modern appeal. A charming fireplace feature is a focal point to the main living area and reminds you this isn't a brand new home, yet the open plan layout makes the living space more engaging whilst still providing definition of space, here's your living room, here's where your dining table will be, it all works.
The kitchen stretches away from the dining room and is one of those spaces where everything will feel easy to reach, you won't be racking up the step count if you've forgotten to get something from the fridge.
A ground floor cloakroom provides practicality and is a few steps from the garden.
Explore downstairs into the basement and you discover those wonderful brick arches that give a timeless feel, with a headroom of around five feet seven inches, (1.7m in new parlance) it's a space that houses the boiler and will make for storage.
Upstairs the pleasant surprise is the size of the rooms, three double bedrooms greet you, storage cupboards abound and the lovely modern bathroom has a separate shower beside it which adds an extra touch of convenience.
Outside the garden has a charming traditional paved courtyard feel, separated into two distinct areas it provides a lovely space to spend time with friends, to sit round a table and chat, enjoy a barbecue and enjoy the colourful flower beds. The brick store room that sits neatly in one corner increases the convenience and practicality of life here, somewhere to keep garden furniture or to make into a workshop. There's access to the side of the house into the garden so this can be a great place for storing bikes too.
This home is somewhere that allows you to live a life without a car if you choose to, on street parking has a variety of options nearby.
A selection of lovely pubs including The Kings Head and The New Flying Horse, restaurant The Wife of Bath, cafe, nearby farm shop at Perry Court and super schooling including Spring Grove Prep School complete the picture of a perfect place to settle.
All in all, a fabulous location, a super home and one we love talking about.Get in touch if you like this property.
