Home with style and view across tree tops

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Old-fash­ioned style is yours at Lit­tle Oaks, part of a Vic­to­rian manor house built in 1895.

In the vil­lage of West­bere, just four miles from Can­ter­bury, Lit­tle Oaks once housed Sec­ond World War pilots, flying out of the air­base at Manston.

It is on the mar­ket with Winkworth and is priced at £625,000.

There are sev­eral re­cep­tion rooms, in­clud­ing a liv­ing room with open fire­place, a large, open-plan kitchen and din­ing area.

Buy­ers will love the high ceil­ings, fire­places, oak par­quet floor­ing and large sash win­dows. On the lower ground floor, there is a util­ity and fam­ily room.

The mas­ter bed­room is on the first floor, en­joy­ing the best of the views to­wards the lakes, along with a dou­ble guest bed­room. A sec­ond flight of stairs leads to the sec­ond floor and two fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms.

Lit­tle Oaks has a fam­ily bath­room, a shower room and a cloak­room. The gar­dens en­joy the best of the southerly as­pect.

Shaded un­der a leafy per­gola, there is a decked ter­race.

The gar­den has a great view across tree tops and down to the wildlife-rich wet­land area with reed beds known as West­bere Lakes.

A drive­way to the front and side of the prop­erty has park­ing for sev­eral cars. Out­build­ings in­clude a work­shop and pot­ting shed.

West­bere is a quiet lit­tle vil­lage that has a pop­u­lar pub and pic­turesque walks to the lakes and along the Stour Val­ley.
