6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Broomfield Road, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 7AZ

3 6 3 Land Size: 2 acres

Tucked away at the end of a private country lane flanked by farmland on the outskirts of Broomfield and Herne villages this fascinating six bedroom country house is surrounded by a moat and 2.56 acres of garden and grounds. It includes a heated swimming pool and a recently renovated hard tennis court and is approached via gates leading to a vast courtyard area where you can park numerous vehicles.


Walking through the attractive wood front door you are immediately drawn to the light and bright ambience enhanced by the glossy white porcelain tiled flooring that flows from the entrance hall to the very spacious reception hall through to the large, semi-open plan dining area. This charming room is ideal for those more formal evening meals and family celebrations and includes a delightful arched alcove as well as a door to the garden room and another to the very impressive living room. Half of this awe-inspiring room is octagonal with a plethora of windows and two sets of French doors to the terraces. It also includes a fireplace with a wood burning stove so is a wonderful focal point on a cold winter’s evening.


There is a large study with access from the hall. It overlooks the courtyard and also has a separate external entrance, so is ideal if you work from home as business visitors do not need to venture into the main part of the house. The large and well-proportioned dual aspect modern kitchen includes traditional floor tiles and a wall of windows overlooking the garden and fishpond. There are plenty of contemporary white glossy storage units housing a variety of appliances and a Stoves range cooker. A square central island/breakfast bar provides additional storage facilities and there is still space for a table and chairs if required. The ground floor also includes an enormous, fitted utility room and an adjacent cloakroom as well as a large boiler room.


On the first floor the corridor has a whole side of windows providing plenty of natural light and views over the courtyard. It leads to a family shower room at one end and a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower at the other as well as to the six bedrooms. There is a very impressive main bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling. This octagonal room has an archway through from the dressing area with fitted cupboards to the bedroom with additional built in wardrobes, a large seating area and French doors to a Juliette balcony where you can enjoy views of the grounds and the countryside beyond. There is also a stunning, triple aspect en suite bathroom that includes a charming standalone bath. Bedroom six is currently configured as an office with fitted shelves.


Outside there is a sunken terrace area that is ideal for al fresco dining and another terrace surrounding the swimming pool and summer house. A vast greenhouse and raised vegetable beds are excellent for those who wish to ‘grow their own’ while a Roman well provides echoes of a bygone era. The moat and much of the rest of the grounds with wonderful mature trees and shrubs is a real haven for wildlife and a special place for children to spend hours ‘making camp’ and playing hide and seek.

“Our parents had a wonderful life here, with the focus on leisure and pleasure. The main rooms were designed for entertaining, and there were many good parties and large family gatherings. Outside, the garden and grounds were enjoyed all year round, with the swimming pool a focus through the summer, and the tennis court regularly used amongst friends. There are lovely places to go for long walks with the dogs and great views across the surrounding countryside.


Broomfield includes the Huntsman and Horn pub and a general store/post office while Herne has a new village hall where a number of activities take place on a regular basis. It also includes the award winning Smugglers pub and the Butcher’s Arms as well as Herne Primary School, rated Outstanding by Ofsted. The house is within easy reach of the Thanet Way for Canterbury and London and only a short drive or a 20 minute walk to Herne Bay with its beach and wide variety of bars and restaurants. This Georgian town also includes an historic pier if you are looking for a little beach front entertainment, while the town centre includes pedestrian walkways with individual shops, cafes and pubs. The property is also ideally located to take advantage of nearby Whitstable and its thriving coastline of beaches, bars and restaurants.


You can enjoy the coastline, nature and wildlife on walking and cycling trails through the Reculver coastal park or visit some of the museums and art galleries along the cultural train. For water sport enthusiasts there is sailing and jet skiing and golfing aficionados can enjoy the nearby Whitstable and Seasalter or the Chestfield golf clubs. There is the Herne Bay High school and a number of grammar schools and first class private schools within about half and hour's drive in Canterbury, Thanet and Sandwich, while commuters can catch the train from Herne Bay station and be in London in less than an hour and a half, and Canterbury West station is 20 minutes away which affords a high speed link to Kings Cross and Stratford”.



Historical Note: The property is in the grounds of Hawe Manor (hence the moat). In the 15th century this was owned by Matthew Philip who became Lord Mayor of London in 1463 and later by John Fineux, The Lord Chief Justice.
