Fir Trees is a charming and extended period property with its origins in the 18th or early 19th century when it was a farmworker’s cottage. It nestles in substantial gardens, grounds and paddocks in the rural outskirts of Chartham Hatch, about a mile and a half from Chartham village and is ideal for a family looking to enjoy the country life. The property is either approached via a driveway flanked by sweeping lawns, shrub borders and impressive trees that leads to the detached double garage or through a gateway from the lane onto a pathway to the pitched roof porch and the front door.


However, as with so many country properties, the usual method of entry is through the rear door from the drive that leads to a tiled lobby, utility room and cloakroom as well as to the attractive and cosy family area with its modern log burner, vaulted ceiling, skylight windows and French doors to a block paved patio. It is open plan to the modern fitted kitchen that includes a double oven and a five ring gas hob, as well as an archway to the dual aspect dining room. This delightful room is ideal for family celebrations and supper parties and includes access to the porch and front door as well as stairs to the first floor. You can see echoes of the original cottage when you go into the large, light and bright characterful lounge with its original brick wall and chimney breast, double aspect windows and long brick hearth with a wood burning stove in the fireplace. It also has doors to the conservatory that was built about 10 years ago.


On the first floor landing there is a large storage cupboard while the very trendy family bathroom includes a delightful stand-alone oval bath on a raised plinth, a separate triple shower and a wide, stylish vanity washbasin. This floor has three bedrooms including the principal with fitted bedroom furniture and a cast iron fireplace, a double bedroom with views over woodland and a single room that has sliding door wardrobes, an airing cupboard and a surprise door that opens onto a staircase that leads up to another double bedroom under a vaulted ceiling.


Outside, there is a log and hay store, off road parking and the separate double garage. This has lighting, electrics and stairs to the first floor where there is a large room that is currently in use as an office and storage. However, the whole building could be converted into a separate dwelling if required, subject to the necessary permissions, so might be ideal for anyone looking for a separate annexe for elderly relatives or adult children or someone wanting to create an office complex so they can work from home.

The charming front garden is surrounded by trees and shrubs and includes a pergola leading to a large lawn dominated by an impressive Indian Bean tree that was planted by the current owner many years ago. Pathways between sweeping lawns with vast shrub beds and trees lead to a hexagonal summer house and a small patio as well as to a discreetly hidden decked terrace with a hot tub and is just the place to relax and look over the surrounding countryside. The lawns lead down to a couple of good sized paddocks with post and rail fencing and a gated access to the stable.

“This has been a wonderful family home which we bought in 1976 and have extended and updated over the years. We have always loved the peace and quiet and our friendly neighbours and it will be difficult to replace. However, although it will be a great wrench to leave it after all this time, I am starting a new chapter in my life and hope that new owners will be able to enjoy everything this lovely place has to offer. It will be ideal for anyone with horsey interests because not only is there a stable and two paddocks but we are also close to Bigberry Farm with its livery stables and cross country course incorporating 40 obstacles winding through five acres of woodland. But anyone wanting to take advantage of the ‘good life’ can always have sheep, goats or alpacas and even some chickens.

Although we have been able to enjoy the advantages of country living, we are not far from Chartham village with its mainline station, two pubs, two convenience stores, a hairdresser and a post office as well as the Chartham Vinery, a primary school, an ancient church and a village hall with a range of activities. It is less than five miles to Canterbury with its two stations, historical buildings, high street stores, individual shops, restaurants, excellent grammar and private schools as well as three universities, a golf course and leisure centres. We are also within easy reach of Ashford for the high speed train that whisks you to St Pancras in 36 minutes and not far from Folkestone and Dover for access to London, the Continent or the coast for a day on the beach”.
