High on the hill overlooking Kearsney Abbey Park and the River Dour is the very attractive Wentworth House. This charming detached family home was built in the 1930s and has been sensitively modernised by the owners but, at the same time, is full of wonderful period features giving it a very warm and friendly feel. Once you arrive at the top of the driveway you can begin to appreciate the character of the house with its kent peg tile roof, first floor oak balcony, porch, leaded light bay windows looking out from the reception rooms and solid oak front door as well as a lovely crazy paving terrace where you can sit and enjoy the well designed front garden and the view over the park. The good sized entrance hall includes an impressive original oak staircase. On one side the hall leads to the elegant dining room that is designed for entertaining with its brick fireplace, picture rails and high skirting boards and to the lounge on the other. This is a delightful room and also includes a brick fireplace as well as coved ceiling and bi folding doors to the lovely sun room where you can sit and admire the beautifully maintained rear garden. To add to the historic feel, the hall and the reception rooms all have original oak strip flooring. The oak theme carries through to the country style kitchen/breakfast room with its oak doors, built in oven, gas hob, extractor, fridge and dishwasher. It is adjacent to the light and bright utility room that has access to the garden and rear terrace as well as to a very useful downstairs bathroom. Off the galleried landing there is a large family bathroom and a separate shower room as well as four bedrooms including the master with fitted wardrobes and access to the balcony. There is a boarded loft space running the length of the house that has radiators and two windows overlooking the garden. It just needs to be boarded on the walls to create a wonderful games room, office or kids' 'hideway'.In the rear garden you will find a large terrace for al fresco dining and steps leading to a winding path and a lawn surrounded by a wide variety of mature shrubs, trees and tall hedges together with a number of nooks and crannies where you can either sit in the shade or follow the sun all day.What the Owner says:
"We have loved living in the house for the past 35 years and stayed here because it has provided us with everything we need. However, we now feel that it is time to downsize and make way for new owners to move in and enjoy this lovely house and its location. We take great pleasure in being in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, not only because of the stunning views but also because it is very quiet and most of the time all we hear at home is the singing of the birds in the garden. We have immediate access to Kearsney Abbey Park for walks with the dog por we can stroll just across the road to Russell Gardens along the Alkham Valley, if we want to go slightly further afield. The wild life is second to none with a wide variety of birds alighting on the ornamental lakes and squirrels and other small animals frequenting the park.
"It is also a very convenient spot as we are about a minute's drive to the A 2 for Canterbury and London or Dover Docks and the Channel Tunnel for the Continent. We have a friendly community in River with a number of activities in the village hall as well as a Co-op mini market, a greengrocer, pharmacy and post office so are well catered for when it comes to day to day requirements. There is also the Railway Bell gastropub nearby and the Royal Oak pub and restaurant just along our road. Kearnsey station provides a good rail service while the local primary school has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted."Room sizes:Entrance HallSitting Room: 19'6 x 13'9 into bay (5.95m x 4.19m)Conservatory: 12'9 x 7'5 (3.89m x 2.26m)Dining Room: 14'3 (4.35m) narrowing to 12'0 (3.66m) x 11'9 into bay (3.58m)Kitchen/Breakfast Room: 11'9 x 10'1 (3.58m x 3.08m)Utility Room: 12'4 x 5'8 (3.76m x 1.73m)BathroomLandingFamily Bathroom: 8'9 x 8'0 (2.67m x 2.44m)Shower RoomMaster Bedroom: 12'1 x 11'9 (3.69m x 3.58m)BalconyBedroom 3: 10'7 x 8'3 (3.23m x 2.52m)Bedroom 2: 13'9 x 8'3 (4.19m x 2.52m)Bedroom 4: 7'0 x 6'9 (2.14m x 2.06m)Loft Room: 13'3 + 10.0 x 7.2 x 10'3 (4.04m x 3.13m)Rear GardenFront GardenDrivewayGarage: 17'6 x 9'2 (5.34m x 2.80m)
