GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The garden is a particular feature of the property and has been improved and maintained to a high standard, with new hedging having been planted to both sides. This has now matured and provides lovely boundaries which frame the lawn. There are some specimen trees planted and a vegetable area at the end.
The property sits in the semi-rural village of Old Wives Lees, high on the North Downs, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is surrounded by orchards, hop gardens and arable fields and because of its elevated position it affords uninterrupted views over hills, woodlands and the Swale Estuary. It also has a weekly doctors surgery, a village hall and bus service, together with easy access to the village of Chilham, with its picturesque period square, farm shop, primary school, sports centre, public houses and mainline station providing a link to HSR services to London. Canterbury (6 miles) offers extensive facilities including an excellent choice of schools in both sectors, universities and various colleges.
SPORT AND LOCAL AMENITIES
We are informed that the village enjoys a good community spirit and participates jointly with Chilham and Shottenden in a range of social and recreational activities along with several local clubs and societies. Other opportunities in the area include tennis, bowls, badminton at Chilham, golf at Scotland Hills and county cricket at Canterbury, sailing on the coast and pleasant walks and rides over the various local footpaths. The ancient woodland of Perry Woods is also nearby, this offers some beautiful walking and extensive views over the Kent Downs.
Chilham station (1.2 miles) provides a link to Canterbury West and provides the HSR service to London (St Pancras 56 mins).
