New Farm House, originally a 1950s bungalow was dramatically remodelled and extended in 2005/2006. A five bar wooden gate opens into a large gravel driveway with stone steps leading up to front door. The front door opens into the stone floored entrance hallway off which are the principal reception rooms. To the right is a \"hidden door\" leading through to what is currently used as a storage room but could make a fantastic study or garden room as there are two sets of French doors leading out to the garden. There is a downstairs WC which is an original Victorian suite. Double wooden doors open into the formal dining room which has a stunning Georgian fire surround set with 17th and 18th century Delft tiles. This is a single aspect room with wooden floor boards and French doors to the garden. To the left off the main hallway is the kitchen which in turn leads through to the large breakfast/living room. The kitchen is fitted with a Jerusalem limestone floor and benefits from under floor heating. Two sets of French doors leading to the side of the property. There are granite work surfaces and inbuilt wooden storage cupboards, and plenty of space for a range cooker; to the side is deep larder cupboard providing excellent storage. The breakfast/living room is an absolutely fantastic space, incredibly light and airy with spectacular views over the countryside. The length of this room is fitted with German engineered folding doors which open onto wooden decking and the garden beyond. The living room has a fabulous 18th century French stone fire surround with inset clear view wood burning stove. Just off the breakfast area is a utility room with stable door leading outside butler sink and plenty of space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor, to the left of which is the master bedroom. This is a super room with wonderful views; French doors open to a good sized balcony overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. There is an excellent en suite bathroom with two sinks, bath, large walk in shower and WC. The master bedroom also benefits from a decent sized walk in wardrobe and large separate storage cupboard. Bedroom 2 is currently used as a study, again with French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking countryside and garden. This could easily become a double bedroom, and is already equipped with an en suite shower room comprising of a shower, WC and wash basin and again a good sized inbuilt storage cupboard. Bedroom 3 is a single aspect double bedroom with some exposed timberwork. Bedroom 4 is a double aspect room with windows to the side of the property and French doors again opening to a balcony overlooking the front of the house with lovely views over towards the church in Elham square. A good sized double bedroom, again with some exposed timberwork. The main family bathroom has bath with shower attachment, walk in shower, wash basin and WC.

\" New Farm House is located in the much sought after village of Elham an unspoilt village with a local shop and good community with primary school and doctors\' surgery, together with a choice of pubs and a restaurant. The village is situated between Canterbury and Folkestone, with their excellent shopping centres, choice of schools and recreational opportunities. There are regular buses to Canterbury and Folkestone.

\" The nearest station is at Sandling and the property is well placed for access to both the M20 and A2/M2. For cross- Channel services, the port of Dover, the Eurotunnel Terminal at Folkestone and Ashford International for Eurostar are all within easy reach. Ashford International station, with the High Speed link to London St Pancras in 38 minutes, is about 16 miles away.

New Farm House is located at the end of Cock Lane which is a dead end so the house gets no passing traffic. The garden is incredibly picturesque and quiet. To the side of the property where doors open from the kitchen there is a large gravel area big enough for a good sized table and chairs, further along is the stable block which is currently used for garden storage but would make a brilliant annex or studio room subject to planning. To the end of the garden is a wildlife pond with a rockery border where the Breeze House is located which is fitted with electricity and a gas heater. The rest of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn, bordered to one side with a collection of mature shrubs and trees and seasonal plants. There is a raised decking area which can be accessed from the breakfast/living room which again makes a lovely spot for outdoor entertaining. The garden then leads round to the side of the property where there is another slightly smaller pond, and again deep herbaceous borders. The vendors also have planning permission for a three bay garage. New Farm House is arguably one of the best locations in Elham and its tranquillity is hugely attractive.
