A flexible and spacious family home sitting in a plot just over quarter of an acre, located in the popular area of Chilham and offering superb views across the neighbouring countryside and Great Stour Valley.

Thornham has been owned by the current vendors since 2006 and in that time they have made substantial alterations such as an additional three bedrooms to the first floor, with a master bedroom that benefits from an en-suite and a balcony with views across the valley.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors to include; entrance, dining hall, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom and two bedrooms to the ground floor and three to the first floor as well as a first floor bathroom and en-suite shower room.

Outside, the property is accessed via a gated brick paved driveway with a workshop and store. The rear gardens are ideal for a family and pets and the potential for a small holding with the vendors currently having a chicken run.

Chilham is a well-respected village situated some 6 miles south west of the Cathedral city of Canterbury and 9 miles north-west of the large market town of Ashford. The village is situated on the Pilgrim's Way and is centred around its 15th century square which is flanked by its famous 12th century castle and 13th century church.

Excellent amenities are on hand with a village pub, village hall, doctor's surgery, primary school, village shops and mainline railway station providing travel to Canterbury, central London and Ashford International providing a high speed 37 minute journey to London St Pancras.

We would strongly advise an internal viewing to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer.
