The property is situated in a sought after location on the edge of the village of Bridge. The village offers many local amenities including: mini supermarket/post office, quaint tea rooms, pharmacy, health centre, dentist, hairdressers, primary school and a selection of public houses. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, cycling, and riding. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is easily accessible and offers a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities. The village enjoys a regular bus service to Canterbury and Folkestone and the A2, with its links to the M2, is nearby. Train stations can be found at Bekesbourne and Canterbury which has the High Speed line to London St Pancras. The Channel port of Dover, together with the Folkestone terminal of the Channel Tunnel are all easily accessible. Ashford International Station provides the Eurostar service to Paris, Lille and Brussels, with connecting services beyond.
A detached family size house now well worthy of the updating and modernisation required. This property is extremely light and airy having a large amount of picture windows, some of which are double aspect and some have lovely views over the gardens or across Bridge village itself.
The ground floor accommodation leads off from a main hallway with a wonderful central U shape staircase. This staircase has a large window at half landing level while all the four bedrooms and family bathroom are accessed from the galleried landing.
Downstairs there is a L shape reception room at the front which could easily be sectioned into a further study or family room, while still keeping a generous size sitting room with a central fireplace. A good size square kitchen with utility area and a dining room are positioned at the rear of the property benefiting from garden views. It would seem benefical to create a large kitchen/dining room by incorporating the two into one subject to the usual building consents.
