Property description

Chilham square is one of the most captivating village scenes in Kent. That's borne out by the number of people who have told us, 'when we first came to the village and saw it we just knew we had to live here!'.
The owner told us exactly the same thing and as you take a wander around the timbered buildings and look at the castle entrance you'll understand why.
Chilham is much more than just a pretty square. It is a village that has a heart and a community. It has a station and with Ashford to one side provides excellent access to London and via the Eurostar from the international station, Europe is a simple train ride away. Canterbury, that magical cathedral city is also nearby whilst all around Chilham is some of Kent’s prettiest countryside. The River Stour winds its way through the valley and has provided inspiration for film and tv.
You might imagine that somewhere so pretty will be inundated with visitors, over run with tourists but it rarely seems that way and some might argue this pretty place is one of the best kept secrets in Kent.
The beauty of this home comes from the proximity to the village centre whilst amazingly having privacy at the same time. It is one of those homes that you don't stumble upon, you need to know it's there and the magic of discovering it for the first time will stay with you.
The owner has made this very much a home for herself and the design and thought she has invested pays wonderful dividends. There is an incredible feeling of calm as you step in, a little awe too as you take in the high ceilings and the fabulous glass panels and carefully crafted timber work that provides a super feature. The aga presides over the kitchen, a room where any cook will enjoy creating dinner. Tall wall cupboards are artfully designed and handcrafted to make the most of the storage space. Appliances are hidden away so that the room has that air of sophistication that suits the building. From the sitting room, French doors open onto a garden that revels in the evening sun and brings an almost Mediterranean feel to rural England. Thoughtful design has provided a downstairs wc and storage cupboards are deftly hidden in plain sight.
Upstairs the master bedroom has a dressing room en suite. 'It was a shower room when I came here.' our client told us, 'but I altered the bathroom and made that special, I love the slipper bath. The en suite was better for me as dressing space but could easily be re-instated if the shower room is needed or wanted'
There is a great second bedroom and another lovely asset is the garage that comes with the home.
You may have gathered we love Chilham, visit and you'll realise why. View this home and the chances are your heart won't let you leave.
