Freehold
This delighftful property believed to date around the 1950's,offers a unique opportunity to purchase a detached 4 bedroom country house with 4 acres (TBV*) now in need of updating and refurbishment, located in a secluded quiet rural location on the edge of the village Hawkinge,near Folkestone.

The house has been the families home for the last 40 plus years and currently has kitchen/breakfast room, dining room,study, cloakroom,two reception rooms, partly finished conservatory, four generous bedrooms, and a bathroom and so provides ample space for comfortable living. The house itself needs improvement therefore giving an excellent 'blank canvas' for those seeking a rurally located family home. It would also offer further opportunities to extend and add more bedrooms and receptions (subject to permissions).

Outside there is an attached unfinished garage, with good access to the front of the property featuring a large sweeping in and out drive and parking for a number of vehicles including horse trailers/horseboxes.

To the rear of the property is a secluded spacious garden mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. For potential equestrian use there is a large gated level paddock adjoining the property and is around 4 acres(TBV*) with options to add stabling and a riding arena (subject to permissions).

The location is well placed for all to explore the countryside with country walks,cycling and riding out options nearby.
