His­toric name be­hind new house

Kentish Express Ashford & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

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.
