Description

An attractive country detached house set in a unique environment with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, dining room, sitting room and large kitchen. Plus additional 3 horse stable block and large modern home working detached office all set in 2.8 acres.
Heathwood Lodge was built in 1910 as a Summer holiday retreat for a wealthy business family from Folkestone who bought their staff with them to enjoy the feeling of living in the county side. Set in the small hamlet of Wheelbarrow Town, adjoining the village of Stelling Minnis, this unique positioned property enjoys 2.80 acres of grazing pasture set out in 3 fields. (an adjoining 3 acre field is rented and would involve separate negotiation).

All pasture is set amongst an established boundary of mature trees backing onto open forestry and a truly rural safe riding experience with very low traffic flow. Wonderful walking can be enjoyed in the forestry area or especially on the adjoining ‘ Minnis Land’ of uninterrupted grass land of over 200 acres. The attached village of Stelling Minnis enjoys a village shop, post office, public house, village hall, C of E Primary School and a regular bus to either Canterbury or Hythe by the sea. The established garden is a wrap around family friendly with flower boarders /trees/shrubs/small pond and a small orchard and poultry area all accompanied with resin stone pathways and a raised Indian Sandstone patio.

Accommodation:
The layout of the accommodation on the ground floor consists of a large Kitchen with high ceilings and original pine boarding to wall and part ceiling, an oil fired Rayburn 480K dual purpose cooker and central heating boiler servicing 17 radiators and a small utility room for coats and boots with an external exit door, fitted cupboards and units with hob and dual electric oven.

Off the kitchen is a good sized bay windowed dining room with cast iron Victorian fireplace. The sitting room has dual aspect windows and part bricked working fire place. Off the hallway are the stairs and a generous washroom with wc and wash hand basin and the front entrance door.

On the 1st floor landing is bedroom No 1 with dual aspect windows, a decorative Victorian iron fireplace, and a walk in wardrobe. Bedroom No 2 has a bay window, small built in wardrobe, decorative Victorian iron fireplace and incorporated en-suite shower room. Bedroom No 3 has a large built in wardrobe, dual aspect windows and an incorporated bath en-suite bathroom. Bedroom No 4 has a small built in wardrobe, decorative Victorian fireplace and incorporated en-suite shower bathroom.

Off the landing are the stairs to the second floor No 5 bedroom with a generous bath en-suite bathroom, airing cupboard with large hot water tank and across the landing is a linen storage. There is a small entrance door to under the eaves storage leading to the large bedroom with dual aspect windows and a decorative Victorian fireplace. Nearly all the windows are part sealed doubled glazing with the exception of the coloured featured glass sashes.

Exterior:
With a generous approach driveway to the rear of the property with enough parking for 6 cars and the 2.8 acres of fields, plus a further 3 acres of rented grazing, all laid out in three/four paddocks all with a water supply. The adjacent 3 stables are in line and have a small feed room and a hay store. There is a good sized workshop/garage with windows overlooking the fields. A solar panel area of 16 solar (4KW) panels are attached to the roof of office and stables. Nearer to the house along a resin stone pathway is a very generous home working office with full insulation, under floor heating and an inbuilt rubber floor finish. Just outside the office is a small facility with wc, sink and washing machine/dryer facility. The raised Indian stone patio has southerly aspects which are enjoyed most of the day and has immediate access to kitchen through sliding doors.

Location:
Wheelbarrow Town /Stelling Minnis lies in the High North Downs at circa 160m above sea level in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just off the main through road from Canterbury (6 miles) and Folkestone (circa 8 miles). The strong community spirit enjoys many activities at the village hall and the village benefits from a well supported Davison Windmill and Museum which attracts numerous visitors for cream teas during the summer period. Walking over the exclusive ‘Minnis Land’ is part of the village uniqueness which can be enjoyed with the experience of discovering hidden away properties like nowhere else . A vibrant local Church of England Primary School is a perfect place for education in the country side and enjoys good educational experience in learning how nature works on ‘The Minnis Land’ which is mostly adjacent to the school.
