What the owner says

“We moved here about 21 years ago because we fell in love with the peace and quiet and the stunning surroundings while still being so near the A2 and Canterbury. We have loved every minute but feel it is time to start a new chapter in our lives although it will be difficult to find anything to match the views and the warm and friendly feeling engendered by this house. Whether you are looking for a permanent home or a gorgeous weekend rural retreat this house has it all. We are also not far from the coast at Whitstable or the Thanet towns for a day on the beach. The historic city of Canterbury includes some impressive UNESCO heritage site buildings, a variety of high street stores and individual shops as well as a plethora of restaurants, pubs and two theatres. There are three universities in the city as well as excellent grammar schools and top class private schools while the Blean primary school and St Thomas's Catholic primary are both rated Outstanding by Ofsted”.


Property details

This delightful property is one of four houses converted from a large apple store in 1990. It was originally built in 1860 and still retains its traditional Kent weatherboarding exterior, giving it charm and character even before you cross the threshold. Driving down the private road that leads to China Farm Barn and ends at the farm itself, you feel you are deep in the Kent countryside, yet it is less than a minute's drive to the A2 for London, Canterbury and Dover and just over two miles to Canterbury West station with the high speed train that can whisk you to St Pancras in less than an hour. From the moment you step into the entrance hall you are imbued with a feeling of calm created in part by the various muted colours of the Farrow and Ball paint that covers the walls and ceilings of all the rooms in the house. The delightful farmhouse kitchen/diner with its original beam is the real hub of the household and includes a walk-in larder, a pantry/storeroom and bespoke handmade units painted to match the rest of the room that house a gas hob and double oven. There are French doors to the garden and it is when you walk out onto the circular patios you can really begin to appreciate the panoramic vista of apple orchards and the rolling hillsides beyond. This floor also includes a cloakroom and a study that can be used as an additional bedroom. The impressive lounge on the first floor includes an original ceiling beam, a very attractive semi-circular hearth with a log burner and new casement and picture windows that allow you to revel in the fabulous views. This floor also includes a double bedroom with views over other orchards and an en-suite shower room. On the second floor you will find three more doubles including the main bedroom that provides even more wonderful views, a double fitted wardrobe with sliding doors and an en-suite wet room with a power shower. There is a modern family bathroom that is also accessed by one of the other bedrooms and a spiral staircase leading up to the very useful loft room.
