Highfield House is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a 4 bedroom country house with telescopic covered and heated swimming pool, set on high land and in a secluded rural position and yet within easy access of the City of Canterbury. The house sits in nearly 0.5 acre and offers lovely views to the surrounding rolling Kent countryside.
Originally constructed in the 1930s as a gate house to the manor house, the property has been enhanced and extended by the current owners to provide spacious family accommodation. Particular features include a spacious double aspect drawing room, kitchen/diner with oil and solid fuel Rayburn, a recently updated principal bedroom suite, a well maintained heated swimming pool with telescopic cover, maintained alarm system and lovely views from all the windows over the surrounding Kent countryside.
Grounds & Gardens
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway through a painted wood gate. The house and gardens are both private and secluded offering some wonderful views. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and planted with mature hedging, shrubs and trees. There is a well maintained, covered and heated swimming pool within the rear garden, which has been screened by hedging. There is also a summerhouse and shed.
