Dane Farm House is situated at the head of a delightfully unspoilt wooded valley on the North Downs to the south of Canterbury designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The surrounding area is completely unspoilt and, uniquely to this part of Kent, the house is approached over a long gated public road that adds further charm and attraction to this property. Of brick and flint construction, the house offers good family accommodation and excellent equestrian facilities.

Entering through a glazed vestibule cum conservatory, double doors lead directly into a large double aspect dining room which opens directly into a well fitted kitchen with a range of pine wall and floor cupboards with granite work surfaces over. A recessed fireplace houses a two oven oil-fired Aga. From the kitchen a door leads into a rear vestibule off which is a newly fitted shower room, further utility space and storerooms and a door to the outside. Also from the kitchen a door leads into the inner hallway where the sitting room and study can be accessed. The sitting room is a large bright room with brick inglenook fireplace housing a large wood burning stove. There are also double doors from the front of the sitting room out into the front garden. Double doors lead directly from the sitting room into a good sized conservatory which has doors out into the rear garden and terrace.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en suite shower room which has recently been newly fitted as has the family bathroom at the other end of the landing. The accommodation is completed by three further bedrooms and a dressing room.

* The City of Canterbury lies about 8 miles to the north and provides a wide range of recreational, leisure, shopping and excellent educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors. The nearby village of Barham and picturesque village of Elham provide local services.

* The A2 at Kingston can be joined about 3 miles away, providing easy road access. The property is within 11 miles of the Channel Tunnel, 14 miles of the Port of Dover and 11 miles of Ashford International Station.

* Canterbury West and Folkestone West stations provides high speed services to London St Pancras in 58 and 53 minutes respectively

Approached off a quiet country lane there is a parking area immediately in front of the double garage which has electric up and over doors. To the rear of this building is a large stable which accesses directly into a paddock on the left hand side. Within this paddock are two further ranges of buildings, one a good sized timber built storeroom with electric light and power and a further range of stables with four individual stables and a tack room. This paddock also has a gate onto the lane. There is a gate from here that leads directly into the paddock which wraps around the rear of the garden and links directly to the ménage. There is a further paddock beyond. Both paddocks are well fenced; the lower paddock also has water. The gardens to the front and rear enjoy lovely views down the valley and have a range of ornamental trees and shrubs.
