Set off a quiet road on the edge of the village, Mount Charles House occupies a private and peaceful location overlooking open farmland to the rear. Built about 17 years ago by a well respected local builder, the property is a light and airy family home offering good accommodation.

A solid entrance door with wide windows to each side leads to a light and spacious galleried hallway. The focal point is a feature fireplace. From here, solid wood doors lead to the principal reception rooms which provide excellent space in which to entertain as well as being practical for day-to-day family life.

The drawing room is a lovely, light triple aspect room with a door to the side terrace and enjoys pleasant views across open fields to the rear. There is a fireplace to one wall. Adjoining the drawing room is a good size study which also has a door to the rear terrace and similar open views across adjoining fields.

At the centre of the house the well proportioned dining room adjoins the kitchen and there is a communicating door between the two rooms. This also enjoys similar views to the rear. There is a cloakroom with WC and hand basin.

The kitchen is a large family kitchen-cum-breakfast room with windows on two aspects, flooding the room with light as it has a south-facing elevation to the front. The kitchen is well appointed with ceramic tiled floors and an extensive range of limed oak cupboards with work surfaces over. Next to the kitchen is the utility room with stainless steel sink, plumbing for dishwasher, space for tumble dryer and upright fridge/freezer, fitted wall cupboards and wine racks.

A door from the kitchen leads into the side entrance vestibule and to the family sitting room with windows on three aspects and a door to the garden. There is a shower room with fully tiled shower cubicle and Aqualisa shower, wash basin and WC.

From the hall a turned staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing, again a bright area with window overlooking the front driveway. The master bedroom is triple aspect affording plenty of light and has a large en-suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms and a large single. With one exception, all have fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom completes the accommodation.



Mount Charles House is located in a small development of village houses in Bridge. Bridge offers a good range of local facilities including a highly regarded primary school, newsagent, three public houses, mini supermarket, doctors and dentist\'s surgeries, butcher and bakers. Canterbury (3 miles) offers a wide range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities with good schooling in both the private and state sector.

The channel port of Dover is approximately 12 miles away offering regular ferry services to the continent. The Euro tunnel terminal at Folkestone (17 miles) has regular shuttle services to Calais.

Bekesbourne station (1½ miles) offers local services; alternatively fast services to London Victoria from Faversham (12 miles) take approximately 70 minutes.



Mount Charles House is approached over Mount Charles Walk through wide wrought iron gates to a parking and turning area in front of the house to the side of which a new double garage will be constructed by the current owner.

The garden is principally laid to lawn with shrub beds. To the side of the house is a terrace and steps lead down to the lawn. To the rear is metal estate fencing giving onto open fields and enjoying lovely views and there is a garden shed
