What the owner says

“We have lived in Bridge for 21 years and came here when our son was very young. It is a wonderful part of the world and the village is a delight. Over the years we have loved extending and renovating the house to provide everything you need in a large family home. However we now feel it is time to downsize and hope that another family will be able to enjoy everything we have put into the design and creation of this lovely place, from its beginnings as a three bedroom cottage to becoming probably one of the most impressive and largest modern house in the village. Bridge is a very friendly and social place and includes three pubs and restaurants as well as a tea shop and a variety of shops including a small supermarket, a health food shop, pharmacy and a hair and beauty salon. You will also find a dentist and an excellent surgery and clinic. There is a good primary school in the village as well as outstanding private and grammar schools in Canterbury, Folkestone and Dover and a regular bus service through the village to Folkestone and Canterbury, while there is very easy access to the A2 for London, Canterbury, Dover and the Continent. Broome Park Golf Club is close by for golfing aficionados and for those who enjoy riding, Covert Wood offers some splendid ‘off road' facilities, while there are lots of great places to take the dog for a walk".


Property details

To really appreciate this stunning residence you need to step over the threshold to revel in the wow factor and enjoy this veritable Tardis of a spacious family home. It was originally built in the mid 1950s but in 2006 it was completely renovated and expanded by the current owner. As a builder the owner has ensured that everything is of the highest quality and you can see the superb craftsmanship wherever you look. The property nestles in 0.4001 acre of grounds and includes plenty of flexible accommodation that has been designed for both a leisurely family life and entertainment. There is an indoor swimming pool complex, a cinema, a high quality brick built barbecue and a gym.

Once over the threshold and through the large tiled porch your first sight is the impressive double height reception hall with its attractive pine staircase and galleried landing. It leads to the main family space that includes the large country style fitted kitchen, a dining room with french doors to the rear terrace and the sitting room with its attractive art deco style fireplace and herringbone parquet flooring. An arched corridor leads to the beautifully proportioned and elegant drawing room and a good sized cinema that leads through to the swimming pool complex that could always be converted into a separate annex. It includes the heated pool, a gym and changing facilities, a utility room, shower room, an office, plant room, the forecourt and the fully tiled and heated double garage/games room. The landing leads to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. They are separate from the master suites and approached via the main staircase, One of the rooms has access to the large attic that could be another bedroom. The other staircase leads to two stunning master suites both with seating areas and stairs up to dressing rooms that could become additional bedrooms if required. One is adjacent to a fully tiled and marble bathroom and the other includes an en suite bathroom. Outside there are individual garden areas and an additional walled driveway.
