6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Brooklands Close, Fordwich

2 6 4 1

Walking up the steps to the impressive front entrance of this Grade II Listed Georgian residence built around 1810 you can feel the elegance of a bygone era. Whether it is the high ceilings, the large multi pane sash windows or the proportion of the rooms, this feeling continues as you walk into the spacious reception hall or look down the very wide corridor with its ornate arched coving and central ceiling rose. The property has been completely renovated and refurbished by its Danish owners since they moved here four years ago and, while it includes some wonderful period features, it has also been sensitively updated with a modern Scandinavian twist such as the Danish pebble burner that keeps the area very warm.

To take advantage of the delightful views across the village green to the church and the wrought iron balcony that runs along the entire width of the property at the rear, the main open plan living space is on the first floor and this includes a kitchen/diner and sitting room with a cosy log burner to sit around. It is the true hub of the household with a kitchen that incorporates discreet fitted units, an inset range cooker and other integrated appliances as well as high french doors to the balcony and additional windows on two other sides, providing plenty of natural light as well as sufficient room for a large table and chairs. There are also two large bedrooms on this floor currently used as home offices as well as the master bedroom with its french doors to the balcony, vast en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes.

On the ground floor there is access to the cellar that is almost the same footprint as the house so ideal for storing the wine as well as are two adjacent double bedrooms, one with an en suite triple shower room and the other with a Jack and Jill bathroom which has a secondary access to the reception hall. There is also a large utility room leading to an annex consisting of a studio apartment with a fitted kitchen and separate bedroom with en-suite shower room that would be ideal for an elderly relative or staff member. This also leads to an exterior side door and cloakroom.

From the corridor you can take steps down to the very charming rear garden that consists of block paving surrounding stunning shrub and flower beds with some superb and colourful plantings that are a joy to behold. There is also a substantial pergola covered in roses and camellias leading to the side lawn. The whole property is surrounded by a brick and wrought iron wall as well as a beech hedge so is very private and secluded. There are also double wrought iron gates to a driveway for off road parking and triple garage available.

“Prior to us buying the property it was the offices of a local estate agency for 30 years so we have had a delightful time completely restoring it to its former glory as an elegant home. However we feel it is now too big for us and we are looking to downsize. We love the area as Fordwich is very beautiful and historic yet we are not far to the historic city of Canterbury with its high street stores, individual shops, restaurants, theatres and universities. While you can walk to Sturry with its mainline station and convenience store. It also includes the renowned Kathton House fine dining restaurant, a pharmacy, post office and hairdresser as well as the famous Kings School Junior school and the Sturry primary school, graded Outstanding by Ofsted.

There is the main road and a bus that can take you into Canterbury or as far as the Thanet towns and with the Channel Tunnel not too far away you can be on the Continent in less than an hour. Fordwich itself is famous for being the smallest town in England with its own town hall, historic church and charming village green. This small town is full of attractive and historic buildings and has the river Stour running through the centre. It also includes an excellent olde worlde pubs – the George & Dragon and also the Fordwich Arms which is now a Michelin star restaurant so you can a lovely bite to eat and a drink without having to worry about driving. For anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits there are wonderful places to go fishing on the river, while the nearby Westbere Lakes offers sailing opportunities as well as fishing and clay pigeon shooting takes place at the Greenfields Shooting grounds in Sturry”.
