4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Aylesham Road, Snowdown, Canterbury, Kent, CT15 4JR

2 4 1

Surrounded by countryside and nestling in fenced grounds with mature trees, the unique Ackholt House has immediate kerb appeal from the moment you see the gable parapets, the arched and diamond paned ‘Dering’ steel windows, outer wrought iron door and original oak front door. The surrounding land formed part of Lord FitzWalter’s Goodnestone Park estate and the house was rebuilt in about 1880 by the then Lord FitzWalter in his local village style that can be seen in many of the properties in Goodnestone village including the old post office and the FitzWalter Arms pub. Ackholt House and surrounding land was leased to a tenant farmer and this continued until the 1960s when the last tenant farmer retired and bought the property freehold.

Once across the threshold the character of the property becomes even more apparent with its attractive entrance hall and original oak flooring which continues into the reception rooms. The charming sitting room includes a brick fireplace with an enclosed Italian log burner as well as a central ceiling rose and double aspect arched windows. The elegant formal dining room has built in bookcases, a brick surround fireplace and double aspect arched windows providing charming views across the garden that includes raised beds with miniature roses.

The large and well-proportioned country style kitchen includes an oil fired Aga and sizable walk-in larder alongside modern units housing a built in oven and induction hob. Quarry tiles line the floor of the kitchen areas while the wooden floored breakfast area has plenty of space for a large table and chairs. The adjacent utility room has access to both the downstairs cloakroom and the rear garden and is light and bright with a wall of windows providing views across to the ancient Ackholt Wood. Under the stairs there is a large cellar providing plenty of storage but this could be developed as a games room, home office or gym.

Upstairs there is a spacious galleried landing leading to the four bedrooms all with arched windows and wonderful rural views, plus a stunning family bathroom. This has been created out of the fifth bedroom and is truly awe inspiring. It can be accessed from the corridor or from the adjacent bedroom and includes an impressive bespoke bath surrounded by mini mosaic tiles, a wet room style power shower area and trendy basins. Three of the bedrooms are doubles including the one with direct access to the bathroom and the fourth is a single which could make a useful study.

Outside, as well as the raised flower beds and lawns interspersed with the plethora of trees, there is a west facing terrace and a charming summer house that compliments the exterior of the house as well as a delightful pond and rockery. The impressive gated driveway includes a grassed roundabout outside the front door and culminates in the rear garage providing plenty of off road parking.

“We bought this house in 1978 and have loved bringing up our children here, now it is time to let others have the same pleasures with everything this wonderful home has to offer. Although we are surrounded by farmland, we are only a short walk from two stations with fast connections to the high speed train, so you can be in London in just over an hour and a half. Nearby is a fast non-stop bus service to Canterbury that takes less than half an hour and if you enjoy walking the dog there are some excellent public footpaths with access to charming landscapes including the rare and ancient Ackholt Wood that has some wonderful flowers and wildlife”.
