4 bedroom House - Detached for sale

Sold Subject To Contract

A 15th century thatched cottage of great character and distinction, this three/ four bedroom charming property is deceptively spacious and retains many original features associated with the period of build such as the exposed timbers and beams through many of the rooms, exposed brick and inglenook fireplace. Over the years the property has been extended and modernised without losing any of the character. There’s a useful annexe which is currently utilised as additional living space but would also suit use as studio space or as a home office etc.

The main house is approached via a mature and gated front garden with off-road parking to the side. The rear garden is lawned and gravelled and the grounds have such a level of maturity that it affords a high degree of privacy indeed. There’s a small porch leading to a fraction hallway with shower room and a bedroom off. The through lounge is a fabulous room occupying part of the oldest section of the house with vaulted and beamed ceiling and stunning inglenook fireplace featuring a high quality gas stove. There’s a study and an inner hallway which leads to the modern, well appointed kitchen which in turn leads to the dining/ garden room. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a charming and cosy family room. The first floor has two further bedrooms, family bathroom and large eaves storage room. The annexe features two rooms and a shower room and sits behind the garage which all form a detached outbuilding to the side of the main house.

The Thatch is situated in Broad Oak village, which lies to the north east of the Cathedral City of Canterbury and within easy reach of Canterbury West railway station which provides a high-speed rail link to St. Pancras, as well as access to the city centre with its wide variety of shopping, dining and cultural facilities. Canterbury also has a number of highly regarded schools in both the private and public sectors including grammar schools, colleges and universities.
