9 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Pike Road, Eythorne, Dover, Kent, CT15 4DJ

4 9 5 2 Land Size: 1 acres

Situated in a quiet and sheltered rural area surrounded by countryside, there are numerous opportunities available in this fascinating period property that is at least 350 years old. Over the centuries it has been modernised and extended to become a charming family home full of period features such as panelled doors, coved ceilings and exposed beams, but with the flexibility to be multi-generational. It is accessed via a private road that ends at the property but continues as a bridle path and was historically part of the Old Pilgrim’s Way that went from St Margaret’s Bay and continued to Canterbury.

The gates open into a large front drive with off road parking and you are welcomed into the house through a large, newly built pitched roof porch with double glazed windows on three sides. There is a large reception hall with stairs to the first floor and access to the library with virtually floor to ceiling fitted shelves. At the end of the hall you will also find a family room with ceiling beams, a lovely fireplace, shelving and a ‘garden room’ extension with windows on three sides and French doors to the terrace for al fresco dining, providing views across the garden and the surrounding countryside. There is the large and modern kitchen with its inset range cooker and contemporary units with granite worktops housing a fridge freezer, second fridge, built in microwave, coffee machine, wine cooler and dishwasher. There is a central island/breakfast bar and an archway through to the dining room with its French windows. This has stairs down to the cellar that is currently fitted out as an office but would also make an excellent games/hobby room and storage facility. Adjacent to the kitchen is a lobby with another built in fridge and freezer, wine racks and a back door to the garden. On the other side of the hall is access to the utility room that could always be used as another kitchen as it has fitted units, a built in oven and hob, integrated fridge and freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and a door to the garden. It leads to a lounge with a brick surround fireplace, a door to the large conservatory with tiled flooring and a secondary staircase to the first floor. There is a door to a large office or additional double bedroom as it includes an en suite bathroom, as well as a door to a hallway leading to a further double guest bedroom and bathroom with alternative access from the driveway. On the first floor there is an archway to the bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and power shower that opens into the corridor as well as to a large double bedroom that includes fitted wardrobes and a dressing area. There is a family bathroom, a separate cloakroom and six other double bedrooms on this floor including the very attractive main suite with its overhead and vertical beams, built in cupboards and dressing area as well as an en suite bathroom. However as there is a secondary staircase and the existing utility room is kitted out as a kitchen it would easily be possible to create a large separate home on one side of the house for family members, a holiday let or even offices. It also has its own front door, gated entrance, driveway and garden as it was originally a separate cottage. Beyond the main block paved driveway is a double garage and also a paddock area leading to a block of three garages. This could always be converted into additional accommodation, or a games room/bar subject to planning. However behind the garages is an area of woodland and wild garden that backs on to another property and therefore there could be the possibility that the whole area between the driveway and the upper boundary could be designated for development, subject to the necessary planning consents. The main inner rear garden includes a sunken and walled terrace with its painted summer house that incorporates a trendy bar imported from Singapore. The much larger outer garden includes large lawned areas with mature shrubs and trees.

“This has been a very spacious family home for the past 22 years but it is now time for us to downsize and hand the reins over to new owners to enjoy everything this property has to offer and perhaps be able to develop it further. It is unusual to find a property locally of this antiquity and character that not only lies just outside the Tilmanstone Conservation Area but that also has the considerable benefit of not being listed. In consequence it has been possible to double glaze the property throughout to provide a warm, secure and draft free home with low maintenance costs.

With direct access to the bridle path and surrounding farmland there are wonderful places to walk and it is not far to stroll to the Plough and Harrow pub and only 30 minutes’ walk to the Griffin’s Head at Chillenden. There is a post office, village shop and primary school in Eythorne as well as the charming and historic East Kent Railway that is run by a preservation society. A mainline station is available in nearby Shepherdswell with trains to Dover and a choice of London stations including Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street as well as the high speed train that can whisk you to St Pancras from Dover in just over an hour.

Golfers can enjoy their sport at the championship courses at Sandwich or Deal while boating aficionados can join the Downs Sailing Club in Dover and if you enjoy motor racing you can always visit the Lydden circuit. There is the Northbourne prep school not far away and Dover, Sandwich and Canterbury offer excellent secondary state and private education. There are also excellent shopping facilities in and around nearby Whitfield including a large Tescos, B and Q, Lidl, a B and M value store and Screwfix as well as doctors, hairdressers, pubs and restaurants including those providing a home delivery service”.
