The property is situated on the edge of the village of Bridge with far reaching views over the countryside. The village itself boasts many amenities; these include a mini market, health centre, pharmacy, dentist, hairdressers, florist, tea room, village school and three public houses. The village of Bridge lies just to the south east of the Cathedral City of Canterbury, which is within a few miles and offers a wider range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, together with the high speed main line train services to London St Pancras. There are excellent road links to the A2/M2, the port of Dover, Folkestone Euro Tunnel terminal and the Eurostar at Ashford International Station.
Bridge Down is a most unique and quirky detached village house, full of interest and charm and sure to endear itself to all that view!
Originally the Old Station Masters house and constructed in the Victorian era, it now is a most delightful family home although still retaining all of its charm and character.
The ground floor accommodation consists entrance hall opening to a large sitting/dining room with central fireplace and inset multi-fuel burning stove, leading off is the generous bespoke kitchen/breakfast room extensively fitted with an AGA and space for the usual white goods. A useful generous size utility room with Belfast sink can be found from the kitchen with a door opening out to the rear patio. On this floor there is also a family bathroom, and two bedrooms.
Two staircases lead to two separate parts of the first floor, both have two rooms in each half all with restricted headroom, although all four rooms are in daily use as bedrooms for the whole family. One bedroom has an en-suite shower room while a further cloakroom/wc can be found on the landing. The views from all these rooms are simply breathtaking and really must be seen to be appreciated.
