A substantial semi-detached family house with five bedrooms situated on a generous plot with varied large outbuildings of all differing sizes including a large timber chalet, detached garage and generous parking, all with lovely countryside views.
98 Westcourt Lane is positioned right at the top of the lane on the right hand side. The popular village of Shepherdswell boasts a good range of facilities, including a primary school, public house, shops and a wide range of recreational facilities. Being situated on the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the area benefits from a wealth of walks, rides and cycle routes. As well as the main line train station, there is a regular bus service running through the centre of Shepherdswell, giving access to the Channel Port of Dover and the Cathedral City of Canterbury. There is also excellent road access to the A2 Canterbury to Dover road.
Both offer excellent additional educational, recreational and shopping facilities, together with high speed main line train services to London, with the travel time to St Pancras being some 60 minutes.
A little further afield will be found the expanding business centre of Ashford, from where the capital may be accessed in some 37 minutes and, via Eurostar connections, there is direct and easy access deep into Europe
Set at the top of Westcourt Lane with lovely open countryside views, this substantial property, owned by the present vendors since 1982, offers a great deal of potential both inside and out.

Next is a super room, made up of a well fitted kitchen with a Rangemaster cooking range, integral fridge, and walk-in larder. This is open plan to a generous size dining/family room, a wonderful place for everyone to enjoy together. Extending from the front of the property to the rear is a lovely double aspect sitting room with open fireplace.
Upstairs are five good size bedrooms, some having built-in wardrobes, plus there is a family bath/shower room at this level.
