Property Summary


Full Details


Walnut Tree Barn is a charming and characterful Grade II listed detached barn believed to be built in 1813 and converted in the 1970s.
The current owners have sympathetically improved and extended the property in 2013, by creating an inner hall, a beautiful fitted kitchen, and a separate utility room.

Construction is black weather boarding on brick plinth, bespoke replacement windows and doors under a traditional Kentish tiled roof.
The property is beautifully presented and offers many attractive features such as hay lofts, exposed beams and brickwork, impressive feature fireplace, and full height glazed windows. Additional features include a water softener, security alarm system, outside lighting and security cameras.

This lovely home needs to be seen to appreciate the space and versatile living the property has to offer.

The property is approached off Walnut Tree Lane via five bar gate that leads into a gravelled drive, providing parking for four cars.

The pretty cottage garden is lawned with various sun terraces along with a decked area perfect for Alfresco dining.
There are rose beds, trellising, well planted herbaceous borders, rockery pond, garden storage sheds, mature shrubs and hedging, and the rear of the property is adorned with a beautiful wisteria.

Walnut Tree Barn, is situated in the much sought after picturesque village of Westbere, which lies around 4 miles north-east of the historic city of Canterbury.

The village is set in a preservation area that overlooks the beautiful Westbere Lakes and is a haven for wildlife and country walkers alike. There is a village hall, All Saints Parish Church and the well-known Yew Tree public house/restaurant, which was built in 1348. It is one of the oldest pubs in Kent. Queen Anne and the Archbishop of Canterbury are reputed to have stayed here, and Dick Turpin evaded capture from the law hiding out there.

Everyday facilities can be found at the neighbouring village of Sturry, with a range of local shops, Junior Kings school and a mainline railway station connecting to Canterbury, Charing Cross and the coast.

The historic city of Canterbury offers a wider range of facilities, many cultural interests, excellent shopping centre, a wide selection of schools both in the private and state sectors, along with colleges and universities.
Recreational facilities include a number of golf courses, sport centres, swimming pools, championship cricket and rugby. Fishing and water sports can be found along the coasts.

Transport links are also good, with the high-speed train operating into London St. Pancras from Canterbury West in less than an hour.
