This super property is well situated in a popular location in the centre of the village. The village itself boasts a good number of facilities, including an award winning community/general stores, hall, bowls club, playing fields, church, public house/restaurant and sought after primary school.
The surrounding countryside forms part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty over which there is a wealth of public footpaths, bridle paths and cycle routes on one's doorstep.
There is a regular bus service running through the heart of the village, giving access to the north to the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury and, to the south, the Channel Tunnel town of Folkestone and Ancient Cinque Port Town of Hythe on the coast. These offer a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including Grammar Schools and Universities; 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 the Eurostar connections, there is direct and easy access deep into Europe.
A surprisingly spacious ground floor apartment having been updated and improved with just one further flat above.

There is a recently installed contemporary kitchen with built-in eye level electric double oven/grill, electric hob, overhead extractor fan, ceramic white 1¼ bowl sink and a good size breakfast bar within this super open plan room.
There is a double bedroom positioned to the front, with a further bedroom/second reception, bathroom, inner lobby, cloakroom/wc and utility room to be found at the rear of the apartment.
