Full description:

The Barton stands back from the road in a pretty setting adjoining the Nailbourne, a chalk stream that flows intermittedly through the Elham Valley to the Little Stour at Littlebourne.

It is a Grade II listed as dating from the 15th century, being timber framed and close studded with plaster infill, oversailing on a moulded bressumer at first floor level.

Inside, the house has considerable character with attractive period features that include inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers, mellow brickwork and old doors. There is a cream 2 oven Aga in the kitchen.

The good sized garden provides a pretty setting and a feeling of seclusion. There is even an old tennis court that is crying out to be restored.

The property is across the road from the church on the southern edge of the picturesque rural village of Patrixbourne. Local amenities are available in the nearby village of Bridge, less than a mile to the south west, with its good choice of shops, pubs, restaurant, primary school and doctor’s surgery.

Wider facilities are available in the Catherdral City of Canterbury, with its excellent shopping centre, choice of schools, sports clubs, cultural and recreational facilities.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.

What the Owner says:

It has been a dream to live here; it is hard to describe how quiet it is with only the bird's song interrupting the silence.

I hope the new owner is as fascinated with this home as I am; every room has a story and an uneven floor to go with it.

The garden has also been a joy, I would have liked to have seen the tennis court resurrected, but I just ran out of time.
