Located in a rare and special plot, with a partially walled garden and mature boundaries offering seclusion and privacy, and under a mile from Canterbury, The White Lodge is a comfortable, detached family home with a range of reception space and a generous garden with a swimming pool, garage and stable. The plot totals 0.6 acres and may suit residential development. The northeast wedge of garden provides space for modest residential development, or the whole site could suit significant development, subject to any necessary consents. A welcoming entrance hall leads through to the substantial kitchen fitted within the last year. Arranged...

in a U-shape around a central granite-topped island/breakfast bar, with contemporary wall and base units together with a variety of modern integrated appliances including a Liebherr refrigerator/freezer, double oven and a five-burner induction hob. Adjacent are the bright living spaces, the first being the formal dining room which flows through to the conservatory, with its views of the sunny terrace, pool and private garden beyond. Alongside these two rooms, and accessed through sliding glass barn-style doors, is the sizeable sitting room, another light and airy space. This room has a feature fireplace and an array of sash windows all enjoying tranquil views of the pretty garden. The garden room is reached from the kitchen, with glass double doors providing access to the rear terrace. A door from the garden room leads to a practical utility area and a cloakroom.The substantial and peaceful principal bedroom has a variety of built-in storage options and an en suite bathroom with separate walk-in shower. Three further very well-proportioned bedrooms also occupy the first floor, all with fitted wardrobes and being well served by the family bathroom. The White Lodge sits in an enclosed wrap-around plot, benefitting from an attractive south-west facing aspect to the rear. The property is accessed via a long, sweeping gravelled driveway, with a wide level lawn adjacent, separated by a privet hedge. The driveway leads to the brick-built garage building, offering ample room to park several vehicles. An additional outbuilding provides a stable with greenhouse attached.The rear paved terrace offers the ideal spot to soak up the sun and admire the views. The heated swimming pool with newly fitted solar cover is perfectly positioned, yet carefully separated from the wider garden space with picket style fencing and colourful flowerbeds. A further expanse of level lawn is made private by the range of established and mature trees surrounding the plot, whilst several well-chosen trees and shrubs punctuate the space and add further interest.
