VENDOR INTERVIEW

“Cherry Hay is a beautiful house simply bursting with history and character dating back to the early 1800s when it started life as one of the local village pubs. It’s one of only two flint properties in the village (the other being the church) and it really is a picture-perfect example of a stunning country house. As we approached for the first time, we drove up the sweeping driveway past the pretty wisteria, the huge garden opened up in front of us and we knew this was a special place,” recall the current owners.

“In the nearly 4 years we’ve live here, we haven’t had to make any major changes. However, we were excited to strip away the years of paint to reveal the original character, which is evident throughout, such as in the lounge which manages to perfectly showcase the country style, with it’s lovely oak flooring, fireplace, cast iron radiators and classic Victorian windows. We’ve loved relaxing in front of the fire as the winter sun streams through”.

“The location has been fabulous. There are a couple of excellent gastropubs within a 5-minute walk and nothing beats sitting outside in the summer watching cricket on the green. We can easily access the footpaths to the rear of the house and within a couple of minutes, we are walking in the beautiful North Kent Downs away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There’s something for everyone to enjoy here, including exploring historic Rochester, as well as Bluewater Shopping Centre with its huge array of shops, restaurants and cinema.”

“The garden is amazing, it’s like having our own personal park! Our children have enjoyed playing in their tree house as well as camping, cycling and games of hide and seek amongst the trees in the orchard. We spend a lot of time in the gazebo which is like having another living room in the garden. It’s perfect for watching tv, listening to music and entertaining friends and family. We’ve had some great parties, lots of space on the drive for our guests, marquees on the lawn, bouncy castles, people chatting under the grape vines and children playing ball games at the back of the garden”.

“We will miss being the custodians of this 200-year-old property. It’s a perfect blend of countryside living combined with easy access to modern life facilities. We have loved living in a home that has given us the space to play and grow, as well as having fun with friends. It will be hard to replicate the unique atmosphere of Cherry Hay”.
