What the owner says

“This charming country property has been in our family since 1969 and it has been a wonderful place in which to grow up. We are surrounded by countryside and there are great places to go for walks with the dog and you can stroll into the centre of the village for all your everyday essentials. Bridge has three pubs including two with excellent restaurants as well as a variety of useful shops such as a baker, butcher, small supermarket, a health centre, chemist and equestrian outlet. There is also a dentist, hairdressers and gift shop as well as a primary school rated Outstanding by Ofsted. The adjacent village of Patrixbourne includes a football club and playing fields and nearby Bekesbourne station provides free parking that is a real bonus for commuters together with a veterinary surgery, deli, café and gift shop.

At the same time Bridge is very close to the A2 for travel to London, Dover and the historic city of Canterbury which is only four miles away and includes two railway stations with the high speed train that can whisk you to London in under an hour. Canterbury has three grammar schools and three top class private schools as well as three universities and two theatres. This UNESCO world heritage site city has some amazing historic buildings plus a variety of high street stores, individual shops and a great selection of pubs and restaurants”.


Property details

‘Living in a character property on the edge of a friendly village' is top of the wish list for many people and if that is your dream then this property in Bridge should tick all the right boxes. This fascinating and spacious property was originally built in 1760 and formed part of the historic Bifrons Park estate and is approached via a cul-de-sac that ends in the countryside. While the house now needs modernizing it has enormous potential to be an absolutely stunning country family home. It is in a wonderful location surrounded by farmland on the outskirts of the village and includes large reception rooms and a delightful self-contained first floor apartment accessed via a lift, so is also ideal for inter-generational requirements. On one side of the property is a block paved driveway leading to the garage and an independent external door to the first floor apartment, while on the other side is another wide driveway with plenty of off road parking leading to the main entrance to the house. It incorporates shrub borders and a dwarf box hedge and leads to a large, paved terrace overlooked by a an attached greenhouse. As you approach the house from this side you can begin to appreciate the charming kerb appeal engendered by the black and white exterior with ornamental carved eaves and a white studded front door. The good sized porch with its oak panelling leads you to the hall where you will find a cloakroom and a separate bathroom and access to the ground floor accommodation. The very large dining room with inset shelving and a lovely corner drinks cabinet is an ideal place for entertaining friends and family and on one side leads through to the good sized kitchen that includes a walk in pantry and access to the attached greenhouse. The dining room also houses the lift to the first floor apartment and has a door to the light, bright and spacious sitting room with double aspect windows and an impressive brick fireplace that makes a delightful focal point.
