The Corner is a delightful rural property of cream painted elevations beneath a slate tiled roof. The property has been refurbished and maintained to an excellent standard by the current owners and offers very flexible accommodation with a fine outbuilding with stables and land.

The front door opens into the hallway, which has a wooden floor. To the left is a study which overlooks the driveway. A glazed door opens into a well-fitted kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen has wooden wall and floor units, a central island unit and a travertine floor. There is a solid fuel Rayburn and a door to the outside. There is a lovely outlook to the garden, paddocks and stable building.

To the right of the hall glazed doors open to the an extremely generous double reception room. This double aspect room has a wooden fireplace, seating area and a bar area. From here double-glazed doors open to a wooden decked terrace, which runs along the side of the property. There is also a shower room and utility room accessed from the hall, at the end of which is a one bedroom self-contained annexe. This has a well fitted kitchen with glazed doors opening to the sitting room, where glazed doors open to the terrace. The bedroom enjoys a pretty outlook over the garden and has an en-suite bathroom.

An oak-railed staircase rises from the hall to the galleried first floor landing. The master bedroom is to the west end of the house and is fitted with a range of cupboards and dressing table. Windows overlook the front garden and there is a large en-suite. Bedroom 2 is a delightful room with en-suite shower room and there are balconies to both the side and rear of the property. These provide a wonderful spot to sit and take in the tranquil surroundings and beautiful countryside. The main balcony can also be accessed via steps from the garden. The accommodation on this floor is completed by two further bedrooms

The Corner is situated in an outstanding rural location in the village of Wootton, well set back from a quiet no through lane granting seclusion and privacy. Local services are available in the neighbouring villages of Barham and Elham. The City of Canterbury has many cultural interests, excellent shopping facilities, and a good selection of schools, colleges and universities.

The A2 (2 miles) links to the M2 at Brenley Corner. Both Folkestone Central (7 miles) and Canterbury West (10 miles) have High Speed rail services to London St. Pancras in just under 1 hour. There is easy access to the Continent with the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Folkestone, The Port of Dover and Eurostar services from Ashford International.

The property is well set back from the lane and is approached over a circular gravel drive. A central island is planted with a variety of trees and shrubs creating a pretty approach to the house. The well planted garden sweeps round the right hand side of the property and is mostly laid to lawn and an attractive wall to the right corner creates an eye-catching feature. To the left of the house is an area of hard standing, a detached double garage building and adjacent vegetable garden with greenhouse. At the rear of the property is a paved terrace overlooking the pretty garden and land towards the stable building. The land is divided into two paddocks either side of the house and is accessed via a gravelled driveway through a five bar gate.

The superb stable building could make a first class equestrian facility or be suitable for other uses. There are currently 3 stables. The furthest door opens to a storage room with a wooden staircase rising to a large open area with potential for games room, home office or holiday accommodation. Any alterations would be subject to the necessary consents.
