Located in a stunning rural location is this 5 bedroom bungalow with 7.5 acres (tbv) of gardens, woodland and paddock with glorious views. This unique property has lots of potential, set down a long drive with outbuildings, swimming pool and garaging.
Brief description of accommodation (see floor plan for layout and room sizes). "Ben Edor" is a charming home that started life as a small Edwardian cottage and has, over the years, been extended to make a spacious family home. It is approached along a leafy drive, bordered with apple trees which give glimpses down the hillside of the very pretty Dale Farmhouse in the valley below. As you approach the house, you are struck by its wonderfully secluded position which offers both privacy and solitude, and yet is within a short drive of the village of the pretty village of Woodchurch and the historic Cinque Port town of Tenterden.
The layout of this spacious house is extremely flexible and benefits from well-proportioned rooms, the majority of which have copious amounts of glazing, designed to maximise the views of the beautiful garden and stunning countryside beyond. Sunny days are glorious here, with patio doors and windows thrown open to make the most of the idyllic surroundings, but cold winter days are equally as magical too, cosied up in front of one of the two wood burners in either the lovely sitting room or snug.
As it stands, the bungalow, at just under 2,000 square feet of versatile living space, would suit any number of different buyers, but for those who like a project, there is much to get excited about here, as there is definitely scope to either update / extend the current property to create a lovely modern home, or replace the bungalow with a rebuild bespoke home to your own specification, subject of course to the necessary permissions.
But it is the grounds (circa 7.5 acres unmeasured) which come with the house that take your breath away. The garden, which has uninterrupted views across the valley towards St Mildred's Church in Tenterden comprises a mixture of landscaped planting, mature trees and wide open lawns. There is a lovely south facing upper terrace which is perfect for lazy days in the sun and a further lower terrace where the covered open air heated swimming pool is situated.
In addition there is a large paddock, currently a wild flower meadow, with separate gated access; a smaller paddock and a bluebell wood with stream which is a haven for wildlife. The property also benefits from two detached garages and a number of useful sheds / outbuildings and a greenhouse. SERVICES
