Property Description

Bolingbroke Farmhouse is an elegant red brick Grade II Listed Farmhouse which, according to the local authority listing, dates from the mid-17th Century. Later extensions from the 18th Century to the later Arts and Crafts style of the 20th Century make the property an adaptable family home with excellent reception rooms with good ceiling heights and spacious bedrooms. The house has a wide range of period features including exposed timber framing, stripped wood and parquet floors and stylish Art Deco influenced wetroom en-suite to the master bedroom. Most unusually, to one end of the house, is a Pill Box dating from the Second World War which could now be put to much more peaceful use as a well insulated wine cellar. In all the house extends to about 5342ft2 (497m2)Including within the sale is a beautiful thatched barn, also Listed Grade II with a 20th Century extension used as a billiard room. This building, subject to any necessary consents, could make an excellent home office/annex or ideal space for entertaining.Bolingbroke Farmhouse is set in approximately 2.2 acres of beautiful established gardens with far reaching westerly viewsBolingbroke Farmhouse is to be found on the edge of the village of Sarre.

Canterbury offers a full range of shopping, leisure facilities and an excellent selection of schools in both the state and private sector. Canterbury West Station has high speed rail services taking just under one hour to London St Pancras and local rail services are available from Birchington. The road links in the area are excellent, with the A299 Thanet Way junction at St Nicholas at Wade (about 1¾ miles), connecting to the M2 at Faversham (about 19 miles).

Ground Floor
The parking is all behind the house and there are a number of doors into the rear of the property. A glazed porch leads from the garden to the reception hall. This is in the oldest part of the house with exposed timber framing and attractive fireplaces. Doors lead off to the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is of particular note, extending to over 31ft long with a double aspect and French doors out into the garden. Behind this is the study, with corridors connecting the domestic offices and leading through to the kitchen and breakfast room. At the western end of the house is the former pill box, which with its solid block walls makes an ideal wine cellar.Accessed from outside at the rear of the house is a boiler room and the gardener\'s WC.

First Floor
The principal staircase leads from behind the reception hall to a central corridor leading to six of the bedrooms and two bathrooms. Installed in the 1930s, the en-suite bathroom/wetroom reflects the Art Deco period. A secondary staircase leads from between the dining room and the wine cellar to a further two bedrooms and bathroom which can interconnect to the rest of the house or could be used as a self-contained accommodation for an au pair.

This extends to approximately 3546ft2 (330m2) and is currently used for storage and garaging with the 20th Century wing containing a full size billiard table (available by separate negotiation). The building offers ideal potential subject to any necessary consents, for a conversion into an annex, home office or party barn. Opposite the back of the house is the garaging, with two open fronted double car ports measuring 5.4m x 5.3m each and a double garage with up and over door, measuring 5.8m x 5.65m.
