Historic name behind new house
Sunny days are ahead at newly completed Caen House which comes with a 10-year builders’ warranty.
The three-bedroom property at The Drove, Fordwich, is on the market for £595,000 with Charles Bainbridge.
The house is on a no-through road in historic Fordwich, reputedly the smallest town in the country.
Fordwich was once an important port and was where the Caen stone from France, used by the Normans to rebuild nearby Canterbury Cathedral, was landed, a tale which inspired the name of the house.
The house has large rooms and a high specification finish, with underfloor heating on the ground floor.
The sitting room has a brick fireplace and french windows leading out to the garden. The dining room also opens onto the garden and there is a study. The kitchen is to be fitted to a high standard and will include a comprehensive range of integrated appliances.
On the first floor is a large landing and three double bedrooms. The en suite in the 16ft master bedroom and the family bathroom both have a bath and a separate shower.
There is driveway parking, lawns and paved areas.
