4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Stone Street, Lympne, Hythe, Kent

4 4 2 2 Land Size: 2 acres

“We have loved living here for the past 15 years but feel it is time to start a new chapter in our lives and let another family enjoy everything that has been special about this rural lifestyle. The holiday lets have been a great success particularly with guests attending weddings at Lympne and Westenhanger castles as well as at Port Lympne safari park. At the same time, although we are out in the country, it is only a few minutes drive to the M 20 for London, Westenhanger station and the Channel Tunnel and we can be in Ashford in under 20 minutes for the high speed train that takes 36 minutes to get to St Pancras, so you can be in the centre of London in under an hour door to door.

The village is very friendly with a good primary school, an historic church, a modern village hall with plenty of local activities and playing fields. There is also a well equipped village store and the County Members pub for a drink and a meal while it is not far to the sandy beach at Dymchurch or the Cinque Port town of Hythe with its variety of individual shops, pubs and restaurants as well as three supermarkets.”

If you have ever dreamed of living in the countryside and enjoying rural pursuits then Little Berwick should tick all the right boxes. This gorgeous 17th century Grade II Listed house was originally built in 1636 and is set within 2.02 acres of gardens and paddocks, surrounded by farmland as far as the eye can see. It offers a variety of versatile opportunities that include being able to encompass the ‘good life,’ generating an income from holiday lets, needing somewhere for your equestrian mad family to keep their favourite horses and ponies or perhaps just living in one of Kent’s more charming country houses.

Turning into the long driveway and through the electric gates you are immediately enveloped in the charming delights of a bygone era as you see the picturesque house with its Kent peg tiled cat slide roof, period windows and pitched roof porch leading to the original front door. Once across the threshold the first thing you notice is the delightful brick and Kent ragstone wall beside the staircase as well as the floor to ceiling glass and wood wall and door to the very useful study. The attractive country style kitchen with its terracotta tiles was designed by Thoroughly Wood kitchen designers in Lyminge and includes a range cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

The ‘piece de resistance’ in this house is the fabulous sitting room with its Jacobean ceiling that is believed to have come from Westenhanger Castle. It includes a feature ragstone wall that was the original outer wall and back door, half panelling, a lovely brick fireplace and chimney breast as well as double doors to the front garden and glazed doors to the dining room. This has a beamed ceiling, underfloor heating and a slate floor and leads to the charming Victorian style Amdega conservatory. This, in turn has doors out to a terrace and a hot tub.

There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor while upstairs there are exposed wall and ceiling beams in most of the rooms and on the landing. Here you will find a family bathroom and separate cloakroom as well as four bedrooms including the master with a brick fireplace and an en-suite with double shower and underfloor heating. The large loft offers plenty of storage space.

As well as the beautiful house the outside offers plenty of delights and surprises. The driveway leads to a bespoke double carport and large storage cupboards and to ‘Alpaca Lodge’. This has been an extremely popular holiday let destination and when you walk inside you can see why. It is luxuriously appointed with a kitchen area that includes an oven, hob, fridge freezer and washing machine as well as a breakfast bar created out of reclaimed bricks and wood. There is a wall of floor to ceiling windows in the lounge/diner providing delightful rural views and a pebble terrace outside where you can enjoy breakfast in the sunshine. Upstairs you are greeted by a charming double bedroom under a vaulted ceiling with skylights and a stunning contemporary bathroom with underfloor heating, incorporating a stand alone bath. If you were not interested in doing bed and breakfast this would also make a wonderful home for elderly relatives or adult children. There is also a second holiday let building entitled ‘The Cabin’. This is laid out as a sitting room/bedroom and kitchenette and includes a separate shower room and could always be used as a guest suite or for staff.

There are also two good sized stables, a substantial workshop, a builders’ yard for storage feed etc and a chicken enclosure. The large pebbled hard standing area outside the stables is big enough for a caravan, boat or horsebox and there is a roundabout at the end of the driveway so you don’t have to worry about needing to reverse down the drive. In addition there is a separate office with lighting and electrics with a delightful terrace outside so you can enjoy sitting over a cup of coffee in the sunshine while thinking about work. If you don’t need an additional work station it would also make a great gym, therapy room, art studio or games area.

Gardens surround the property and include lawns, an original well, a gazebo area for al fresco dining surrounded by a dwarf wall created out of reclaimed bricks, mature shrubs and trees. There is also a pond and a field shelter in one of the three paddocks that are currently home to adorable alpacas, pigmy goats and geese.
