Ad­dress: Cold­har­bour House, Bridge, near Can­ter­bury Price: £2.75m Agent: Strutt & Parker A long tree-lined drive leads to Cold­har­bour House, a beau­ti­fully re­stored coun­try es­tate in 30 acres.

Buy­ers will find a 17th cen­tury five-bed­room main house with an el­e­gant Ge­or­gian wing and a three­bed­room cot­tage in the grounds. A one-bed­room flat is along­side the cot­tage.

Eques­trian fa­cil­i­ties in­clude five sta­bles, an all-weather manège and pad­docks.

A tour of the Grade II listed main house starts with an el­e­gant hall.

To the right is the study, fit­ted with cher­ry­wood pan­elling.

A triple as­pect draw­ing room faces the hall and the kitchen/ break­fast room is nearby, with an Aga set into the in­glenook fire­place, gran­ite topped is­land, beamed ceil­ing and ex­posed brick­work.

The din­ing room is set to one side of the kitchen in a con­ser­va­tory style room with views over the pad­docks and gar­den.

A cel­lar is ar­ranged as a gym and work room.

The mas­ter bed­room has an en suite which is fully fit­ted with be­spoke oak join­ery and has a shower, a bath, and twin basins set in gran­ite work tops.

Beyond is a com­pre­hen­sively fit­ted dress­ing room, with draw­ers, cup­boards and shelves all in limed oak.

The re­main­ing first floor ac­com­mo­da­tion is made up of four fur­ther bed­rooms, one with an en suite and a fam­ily bath­room.

The gar­dens are sim­ply land­scaped with rolling, man­i­cured lawns in­ter­spersed with a fine se­lec­tion of spec­i­men trees and a large, fenced pond to one cor­ner.

Plan­ning per­mis­sion for an in­door swim­ming pool/leisure com­plex has been granted.
