A charming 1930's built detached cottage with spectacular views over surrounding countryside enjoying a peaceful, semi-rural setting just outside of Canterbury. The cottage has a large rear garden with a beautiful outlook onto the orchards behind, four double bedrooms with an en-suite to the main and two reception rooms downstairs, one of which is being utilised as a home office.
The current owners have greatly improved the property, including the replacement of all windows and external doors to double glazed units with modern aluminium frames. A wooden front door opens into a brick-built porch, ideal for taking off muddy wellie boots after a countryside walk. From here, the internal front door opens into a bright hallway with ample space for hanging coats and a door to the right opens to a spacious and versatile reception room, which is currently being utilised as a home office, and there is a downstairs WC.
Further down the hallway, a door to the left opens into a wonderfully light and airy dual-aspect living room with exposed wooden floorboards and beautiful views to the front. Double doors open to a large, private patio area, ideal for enjoying a morning cup of coffee ahead of a busy day.
The hallway opens into a large, bright family kitchen with double doors opening out to the rear garden. There is space for appliances and a very large, built-in cupboard offering ample storage space. Subject to planning, there may be the possibility to extend the kitchen to the side to create an even larger space for the family to enjoy.
Stairs rise to a bright central landing which leads to four, generously-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. Located at the front, the main bedroom enjoys views of the green fields opposite and there is an en-suite shower room which comprises a double enclosure with a rainfall shower, a WC, wash basin and a heated chrome towel rail. The bedrooms to the rear have a pleasant outlook over the rear garden and the lush fields and orchards beyond. The family bathroom is spacious and has a modern suite consisting of a bath with shower over, WC and large vanity wash basin. There is also a cupboard, currently housing the water tank.
Outside, there is the most glorious sunny rear garden which is approximately 30 metres long and is laid to lawn. The garden backs onto lush green fields and orchards where you can often see horses grazing. It is an idyllic setting for Summer parties and perfect for families with children and pets. There is a large, double-length shed ideal for use as a workshop as well as access into the garage at the side.
To the front, the property sits back from the road and has a generous front garden with a pond and a brick paved driveway offering ample off-road parking.
Each property in New House Lane is unique with its own character and the neighbourhood is friendly and welcoming. It is an ideal location for those wanting quick and easy access into the City Centre but want to retreat to a peaceful, semi-rural location at the end of a long day. There is a superb nursery school located on the lane, as well as highly regarded secondary schools close by including both Langton grammar schools. There is quick access onto the A2 to London and Canterbury West Station offers the high speed to service to London St. Pancras.
