The property is situated in the ever popular rural village of Kingston. The small exclusive village boasts its own community hall, ancient church and a popular public house/restaurant.
Other villages, such as Barham and Bridge, further cater well for one's every day needs, including a bowls club, award winning village shop/post office, restaurants, public houses, doctors surgery and an excellent primary school.
Located in the heart of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty there is a wealth of public footpaths, bridle ways and cycle routes on one's doorstep.
A bus service runs at the bottom of the village, giving access to the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury, to the north, and, to the south, the Channel Tunnel town of Folkestone and Ancient Cinque Port Town of Hythe on the coast. These offer an eclectic and diverse range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities including both Grammar Schools and Universities; together with high speed rail services to London, with the travel time to St Pancras being some 60 minutes.
The nearby Eurotunnel and Eurostar services also give direct and easy access deep into Europe.

Outbuilding - Studio/Workshop
The gardens are a lovely feature of this property being generous in size and laid mainly to neat lawn.
A large outbuilding was excellently erected in 2012, with part of it used as a workshop, while the other part is currently a studio, but alternatively could be an office, playroom, etc. There is space here for a shower room/wc, and, with this fitted out, it could then lend itself to a small annex, subject to obtaining any necessary permissions.
There is also a garden shed, greenhouse and an area of raised patio ideal for enjoying the summer sun while dining al fresco.
To the front of the property the well manicured gardens also allow for driveway parking of several vehicles.
All mains services connected. Gas fired central heating. Full UPVC double glazing. Cavity wall insulation. The vendors have owned the property for some 35 years and in that time have completely re-wired and re-plumbed the property. The vendors state that there is excellent broadband [fibre] service at the property, with wired broadband also laid on to the garden studio.
