Full Description


The property is situated in the popular village of Bekesbourne, which is surrounded by pleasant farmland and countryside nestled into the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty affording excellent public footpaths, bridle paths and cycle routes. With an excellent range of amenities, available in the neighbouring villages of Bridge and Littlebourne, including primary schools, churches, general store/post office, plus excellent public house/restaurant/coaching inns and active village halls; Howletts Wild Animal Park and Wingham Wildlife Park are also nearby, together with Canterbury Golf & Hockey Clubs. The Cathedral City of Canterbury, with its cultural interests, excellent shopping centre and wide range of schools in both the private and state sectors, colleges and universities, is about 5 miles distant. There is a mainline railway station in Bekesbourne itself, just a few minutes walk from the property, plus high speed services available from Canterbury, with the travel time to London St Pancras being some 60 minutes. In addition to the excellent road and rail networks, the added Eurostar and Eurotunnel services provide direct and easy access deep in to Europe.

The Property

Star Cottage is a most attractive red brick Grade II listed property that dates back to 1728 with the listing noted with two stars inscribed above the doorcase.

The accommodation internally consists a hallway with stairs leading to the first floor, a well fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces, range style cooker and gas hob with griddle, dishwasher, and spaces for washer/dryer and fridge/freezer. Two reception rooms are positioned at the front of the cottage with the sitting room having an impressive inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove. The bathroom has a spa style bath and is found on the ground floor, as is quite usual with these period cottages. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and an enclosed staircase to the loft, which has been the subject of a Listed Building Consent application for permissions to convert this area sought and the final paperwork is currently awaited.

There is also a shingled parking area for off road parking.
