A handsome and prominent Grade II listed detached period property featuring extensive and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors including garage, driveway and a detached two storey outbuilding, formerly the village bakery, set in a central position in the beautiful Kent village of Petham.
Lyon House is a classically attractive and welcoming family home which has, during its life, played an important part of village life in Petham, once being the village shop and also the village bakery.
Originally built in medieval times with later additions, the accommodation now comprises a light and airy drawing room which incorporates the old shop space and a cosy sitting room with feature fireplace, a generously proportioned dining room, fitted kitchen with Rangemaster, a double cellar, master bedroom suite with dressing room and cloakroom (this room could easily be divided to create a fifth bedroom, subject to listed building consent), second bedroom with access to the family bathroom and two further double bedrooms on the second floor, each with en-suite bathrooms.
Outside, the property benefits from a garage to one side of the house and a driveway providing off road parking to the other.
The rear garden is landscaped and arranged on several levels sloping upwards. The large patio area incorporates an outdoor swimming pool (now disused) and provides access to the garden shed and garage. There is a lawned area and steps up to a further area of garden with greenhouse.
To the rear of the house, the former village bakery, a two storey brick building, currently used as a workshop/studio, provides a wonderful addition and offers the potential for an annexe, subject to planning permission.
Petham is a beautiful Kent village, lying some 5 miles south of the Cathedral city of Canterbury with its vast array of shopping, leisure and schooling facilities. The village is in a conservation area surrounded by miles of countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The area is well suited to outdoor enthusiasts with country walks and bike rides accessible from the front door.
