The Post House is, as its name suggests, a converted former Post Office, comprising three spacious floors of flexible accommodation, an attached garage, driveway and tiered rear gardens within the semi-rural village of Adisham.
The property is approached via a central entrance hall, off which is a bright front-facing office with stairs to a substantial cellar which offers potential to create further living space. The elegant 26 ft sitting room with a bay window provides an excellent space to receive guests; a spacious dining area sits alongside via a split-level arrangement.
The dual-aspect kitchen has views over the garden, with the neighbouring light-filled utility having access to the garden. The rear-facing drawing room enjoys views to the sunny terrace and gardens. There is an adjacent cloakroom. The staircase to the first-floor level is located off the dining room.
On the first floor are five well-proportioned bedrooms and a large family bathroom with separate bath and walk-in shower. The dual-aspect principal suite sits above the attached garage and benefits from a shower room, fitted wardrobes and its own access staircase to the ground floor level and terrace. Two of the further bedrooms enjoy bay windows, whilst the remaining two rooms benefit from elevated garden views. The south end of the house was previously used as an annexe, which could be reinstated if desired.
The property has a handsome frontage, with an attached garage with through access to the rear.
A sizeable paved rear terrace is followed by tiered levels comprising red brick walls and railway sleepers interspersed with several shrubs and herbaceous plants, with steps to the substantial raised lawned garden.
The plot is surrounded by mature hedge lines and taller trees and backs onto countryside, which provides good levels of privacy.
The property is located in the tranquil village of Adisham, surrounded by beautiful countryside, to the southeast of Canterbury and with the stunning Sandwich Bay coastal area to the east. The village is a charming small community, with a parish church and an outstanding-rated primary school.
For local amenities, the nearby larger village of Aylesham has a village store, leisure centre and mainline station, while Canterbury, with its excellent range of educational, shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, is within easy reach.
The A2 is readily accessible and the village has a mainline station offering direct services to London Victoria. The area has good access to the Continent.
