Charming and characterful, this spacious four-bedroom country cottage will delight even the most discerning of buyers. Occupying a generous plot and tucked away at the end of a private road, the house has been sympathetically modernised whilst retaining original features.
The current owners have invested considerable time and funds improving this beautiful home to create a calm, light and airy family space, using natural materials and neutral tones throughout. The ground floor accommodation comprises a porch, hallway with access to a shower room and study. There’s a cosy sitting room with wood burner, exposed timbers and exposed brick feature surround, separate lounge with patio doors, a living/dining room with an open aspect to the modern, well appointed kitchen boasting a double sided wood burning stove which is shared with the utility/boot room. There’s also a large walk-in larder. Upstairs are four bedrooms and family bathroom; the master bedroom is a dual aspect room with ample built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. Externally the property has a small front garden, large garden to the rear and off-road parking for several vehicles.
Boughton & Dunkirk villages are ideally situated almost equidistant between Faversham and Canterbury. Highly popular and with excellent access to the M2 and London. The villages of Boughton and Selling both boast popular primary schools, a selection of pubs and restaurants, village shops and bus stops serving both Faversham and Canterbury. There is also a local fruit & vegetable store and village post office. From Boughton there are some lovely walks either deep into the Kent countryside or north towards the coast, and for garden lovers there is an excellent local garden centre.

The Vendor's View
We were looking for a spacious family home in a quiet setting and Antony House ticked all the boxes. With just three neighbouring properties and countryside walks in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the doorstep, we knew this was the right home for us. We benefit from a country lifestyle while being nearby to the village, all the amenities are within five minutes so you don’t feel isolated.
The property dates to the 18th century, so it is filled with character with an impressive appearance. The interior is well laid out for family life and hosting, with three large rooms downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs. It is great to have space both for independence and being together. The wood burning stove creates a welcoming and cosy atmosphere in the winter.
The outlook from our home is beautiful, on a clear day you can see the estuary over the treeline and it is always lovely to return home knowing there are no disruptions, away from the busyness of town life. The outdoor space has been great for us as a family, the large garden is laid to lawn with a patio, perfect for barbecues and summer entertainment.
For us, this has been a perfect family home. We are going to miss the ease of living here and knowing you’re always returning to a property that has something for everyone.
