Stelling House is a wonderful Grade II Listed, timber-framed Kentish farmhouse in a popular location in easy reach of Canterbury. The accommodation is arranged off a central reception hall with herringbone parquet flooring and a deep fireplace with a stone surround, which houses a wood burning stove; fitted bookshelves stretch across one wall. The sitting room has another wonderful fireplace and good levels of light, having windows to the front and doors to a bright conservatory beyond. There is a useful study.
To the other end of the house, a less formal snug with pretty brick mullion windows is well situated opposite the kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a good size with fitted units arranged around an Aga to one end and ample space for a table to the other. From here French doors open to the gardens.
An oak staircase with beautiful carved newel posts rises to the first floor where there are four bedrooms including a master suite with a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom accessed off a large landing/study area. Stairs rise to a cinema room/bedroom 5 and an attic store room. The remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
Stelling House is situated on Stone Street, a little to the south of the picturesque village of Petham, which benefits from a primary school, church and active community village hall. The surrounding countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing a lovely environment for walking, riding and cycling.
Canterbury offers a wide array of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. In particular, there is a good range of educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors.
The A2 provides direct dual carriageway access onto the motorway network and Canterbury West station provides High Speed services to London St Pancras in under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.
The house sits quite centrally within its gardens. Approached over a gravel drive way, there is plenty of parking. To the front is a substantial vernacular Kentish barn providing storage and garaging. A sheltered, walled courtyard sits to the side of the house and a further terrace is accessed from the kitchen.
The garden is laid to lawn, interspersed by mature trees and bordered by established shrubs. A rose covered pergola leads to the end of the end of the garden framing the view to the surrounding countryside and farmland.
