Situated in a lovely, partly walled, old-fashioned English garden, Cherville House is a handsome redbrick property dating from 1874. Located off a quiet country lane between Ickham and Bramling, the house has a very private location.
A wide entrance porch leads into an entrance vestibule and thence into the hall, a wonderful welcoming space with a handsome staircase to the first floor. To the right is a study, a lovely room for peaceful contemplation. Beyond is the elegant, well-proportioned drawing room, with full length bay windows; a central marble fireplace has doors to either side, which open to a useful garden conservatory. Adjacent to the drawing room is the spacious dining room with a south-east facing aspect. Across the hall, the kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and floor cupboards and has ample space for a table and chairs for informal eating. Adjoining is a large utility room. A nearby door conceals stairs down to the two room cellar.
The staircase rises to a half landing, off which is situated a family bathroom. Accessed from the main landing, the master bedroom has fitted cupboards, a walk-in closet and views to the rear of the house. Three further double bedrooms (one en-suite), a single bedroom and a second family bathroom complete the accommodation on this floor.
This property has three acres of land.
Beautifully set in mature gardens, Cherville House is approached off the lane to a gravelled turning and parking area in the front of the house. Wide lawns lead around to the rear garden. The immediate rear garden is enclosed on two sides by a wall. A series of intersecting paths with well-stocked shrub and flower beds lead to the main lawn. Running along one side of the garden is a large vegetable and soft fruit garden. A gate leads through into a further area of garden, also enclosed by high mature hedging. A paddock is adjacent to the garden.
Bramling lies to the east of Canterbury, midway between the picturesque villages of Wingham and Littlebourne, which provide an array of local amenities. Canterbury provides further extensive shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, together with an excellent range of schooling.
The A2 can at Bridge gives access to the M2 and wider motorway network. Adisham, Canterbury East and West stations offer train services to London Victoria and the City, with Canterbury West also providing the High Speed service to St Pancras in under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.
