Property Description

This substantial and impressive property nestling in 0.955 acres of grounds, surrounded on three sides by farmland and sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, was originally built in the 1930s. However it has been completely renovated inside and out and now incorporates everything required for modern day living. Indeed, it looks like a show home with very high quality fittings including oak doors and Thomas Sanderson shutters to the front and side of the main house and annex. The renovations were completed about three months ago and so the property is just ready for the next family to walk straight into without having to lift a finger except install their furniture and put the kettle on. Turning into the vast driveway with off road parking for numerous vehicles you almost feel you are looking at a new property as it has been so beautifully renovated and maintained. At the same time it still retains its historical charm providing a delightful character to the property. Once through the attractive modern front door you enter the bright and airy reception hall with ceramic tiling and glazed french doors to the side patio providing plenty of natural light. Leading from the hall there is a charming snug/TV room and a very useful study as well as a cloakroom and a fascinating ‘nook' designed especially for the dog. However the piece de resistance is the stunning open plan family space that includes seating and dining areas with a modern wood burning stove and engineered oak flooring as well as a fabulous kitchen/breakfast area and a vast picture window and triple bi-fold doors to the terrace and rear garden. The kitchen incorporates a large central island/breakfast bar with a quartz worktop as well as beautiful units housing a variety of Bosch appliances such as two eye level ovens, a ceramic hob, a microwave, warming drawer, dishwasher and a larder fridge and separate larder freezer. There is also a well fitted adjacent utility room. Upstairs there is a modern glass galleried landing leading to a very contemporary family bathroom incorporating a stand alone oval bath on a raised plinth and the four double bedrooms with lovely rural views.

What the Owner says:
“We bought the property because the location was ideal, being within easy reach of Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury and we loved the large garden surrounded by fields full of sheep and horses. At the same time we realised if we totally renovated the property and created an annex we would have a stunning country home that is great as a family home and for entertaining. We have had great parties in the garden and were able to erect a marquee. We are extremely proud of our achievements and will be sorry to leave the house we have spent so much time and effort creating, but we now feel it is too big for us and hope that another family will be able to take advantage of everything we have done here. The hamlet of Selsted includes a good primary school and an active cricket club as well as being on the bus route between Folkestone and Canterbury. It is almost equidistant between the villages of Barham and Hawkinge and just a very short drive to Denton where you can enjoy a delicious meal and a drink at the Jackdaw. Broome Park Golf Course is also located a couple of miles from the property. Barham is a very friendly village with an historic church and a modernised and extended village hall that offers a variety of activities and facilities. These include two large halls, a conference/meeting room and a post office as well as a useful village shop run by volunteers that sells everything you need from light bulbs to specialist local wines and homemade bread and cakes to fresh meat".
