An excellent family house with paddocks and outbuildings on the edge of a popular village
Believed to date to the 19th century and set in an elevated position, Mulberry House has fine views across the valley and the North Downs. Benefitting from a recently installed boiler and extensive rewiring, internally the light-filled, flexible accommodation is arranged over three floors and is a freshly decorated canvas providing a lovely country home.
The ground floor radiates from a central reception and staircase hall with recently fitted oak flooring which flows to the reception rooms either side. To the left, the generous sitting room is double aspect with a wood-burning stove. Beyond is the snug/study, which provides another bright space.
A door from the snug returns to the sizeable family kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of wall and base units and has ample space for a good sized table. Adjacent is a large utility room and a cloakroom. The dining room, set to the front of the house, enjoys lovely garden views, as does the conservatory which is home to a magnificent grape vine and has French doors opening to the terrace.
Set off the spacious first floor landing, the bedroom accommodation includes a generous double aspect principal bedroom with large en suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor.
Stairs continue to the second floor where two bedrooms are set either side of a useful cloakroom.
This property has 3.6 acres of land.
Mulberry House is approached over a gravelled driveway leading to plenty of parking and the outbuildings. An attractive brick building provides storage and stables and offers potential for conversion to a home office or ancillary accommodation, subject to any necessary consents. Opposite is a triple garage.
Immediately in front of the house a terrace bordered by clipped box hedging provides a pleasant spot to relax, enjoy the views and entertain. The mature garden slopes gently away from the house and is laid to lawn with established trees and shrub borders.
There is a pond and summer house beyond which a post and rail fence separates the garden from two paddocks, one smaller and one larger. A pole barn is set amongst apple, pear and quince trees. A path leads down to the bottom of the holding and to a gate to the road, giving the option to walk into Chilham and its station.
The property is set on the edge of the historic village of Chilham, which lies amidst the stunning countryside of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Chilham is a delightful village, filled with chocolate box Tudor buildings and a Norman castle, while the village benefits from several everyday amenities, including pubs and cafés, a doctor's surgery, a primary school. A mainline station provides direct services to London Charing Cross and services to London St Pancras via Ashford.
Canterbury and Ashford both offer a wealth of shops, supermarkets, amenities and leisure facilities as well as well-regarded schools in both private and state sectors. The M2 is also within easy reach, providing easy access towards the M25. The area has good access to the Continent.
From Canterbury: Leave on the A28 via Wincheap towards Ashford for 5.5 miles. Continue onto A252. Turn right onto Mulberry Hill, where the property will be found on the right. The house name will be seen on the brick wall at the entrance of the drive, approached through double wooden gates.Read more
