The Vendor's View

We were first drawn to this house because we wanted to bring up our children in the countryside. This house, on the edge of a large common, had some land to give them space and as it needed renovation, we could make it our own,

Because it is not listed, over 33 years we have been able to adapt the house to the changing needs of a growing family. We have moved walls and doors, adding many modern facilities and recently photo-voltaic “solar” panels which are virtually invisible yet yield useful income. We have sympathetically retained all the period features: It is heavily beamed, has two inglenook fireplaces, a large farmhouse kitchen and a walk-in larder.

The house makes a great family home; it is large enough for everyone to enjoy their own space. There is additionally an annex, which is currently rented out, bringing extra income. It would be possible to run a business from here. We’ve developed a beautiful garden, which produces much fruit and vegetables and the patios are fine entertaining spaces.

Stelling Minnis itself is a quiet village spread around the edge of the common, with a friendly community spirit. The location is perfect in the sense that you are tranquil, set in the countryside, and yet on a bus route to local towns. The village has a good primary school, a general store, two pubs, two churches and many community groups. Canterbury has a range of Secondary Schools, including Grammar and prestigious private schools. The universities make it a lively busy centre. London and France are easily reached using the fast train services.

We moved here with two toddlers, and the house has been a fantastic family home for our daughters, growing up with an exciting childhood in the countryside. We’ve had ponies, lambs, piglets, ducks and chickens. Later it became a venue for teenage parties and many family celebrations. It has been all things for our family and we feel sure that it will continue to be for the next family that live here. We will be sad to leave but need to be closer to urban amenities for the sake of our disabled daughter.
