Wenderton Lane, Wingham, Canterbury, CT3
A rare and beautiful find, this desirable Grade II listed 16th Century period property is set in the most idyllic location with fantastic views and no immediate neighbours, a truly rural experience with views over the fields from every window.
This classic period property was originally a Medieval Hall house dating back in places as far as 1475.
The original character is in abundance from the beams throughout and fireplace, but the current owner has restored throughout adding original character with oak flooring and a wood burner yet sympathetically adding modern touches in the bathrooms and kitchen, making a cosy yet spacious and flexible family home.
Enter though the brick built porch with lead diamond lattice windows through the solid panelled arched door into the living room with oak flooring, and bressumer beam over the Inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove.
The dining room has double aspect windows to enjoy the surrounding view, and is full of character with the exposed ceiling and wall timbers.
The Kitchen/breakfast room has a range of base and wall units, work surfaces. A cooker sits neatly in the brick fireplace enclosure.
A door leads to the area that could easily be made into a self-contained ground floor living area. Ideal for an older family member, or a great teenage pad. There are two rooms which could be a living area and bedroom, and a modern bathroom completes this area. Currently used as a tack/doggy area, this would also lend itself to a home office space just off of the main property to feel slightly separate.
Winding stairs lead to the bedrooms. All three bedrooms are double in size, the main one being approximately 15 10 by 11, all with great views and some with exposed ceiling and wall timbers.
There is also a newly installed shower room with modern tiling.
Outside the garden has far reaching views in every direction, yet feels quite private too, a seating area on the patio adjacent to the property, another next to the pond, or round the rear of the property a small terrace to enjoy the evening coolness. The land in total equals just under the 2 acres and is a mixture of domestic and agricultural. An original working well is a great feature completing this country idyll. Behind the five bar gate there is parking on a gravel driveway for several cars, and an oak double bay car port.
The property is situated in the delightful rural hamlet of Monks Horton, but just a few minutes away from the Church and Public House. In the locality there are a few larger villages and local primary schools. Sellindge is only 5 minutes drive with a Co-op, post office and Doctors Surgery.
Ashford, with the International railway station, and services to St Pancras, London only taking 39 minutes is a mere 15 minute drive, and links to the coast and Channel Tunnel. Westenhanger mainline station is nearer, for more local services. Close to the A20 for onward journeys by car on the M20 to Folkestone/Dover and London. Ashford town and Canterbury City a little further afield offer a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities.
