“We moved here about two years ago and spent most of that time renovating the property to a very high spec as we thought it was going to be our forever home. We really love the quiet and peaceful rural surroundings but unfortunately our situation has changed and we are going to move nearer to our family. However if we could just pick the bungalow up and take it with us that would have been perfect. We even ensured the doors were wider than average to provide easy wheelchair access if necessary and put very large french doors and windows in our bedroom so we could sit in bed in the morning at any time of the year and just look at the view and think we were on holiday all the time. We enjoy watching the horses and a paddock could be available to rent should any new owner have a horse or pony.
Although we are in the countryside the location is actually very convenient. We are not far from the main road with its regular bus service that goes between Folkestone with its beaches, shops and restaurants and Canterbury with its historic buildings, high street stores, myriad of pubs and restaurants, theatres and cinemas as well as two universities and a wide variety of private and state schools. The house is only about a mile from the village of Hawkinge which is a charming and friendly place with plenty of activities. There is the well attended cricket and social club as well as a football club, three pubs including the historic Cut and Custard Pot and the White Horse that has a very good restaurant. There are a number of takeaways and a new and enormous state-of-the-art Lidl for all your grocery shopping plus a dentist and a doctor’s surgery. In addition to the regular bus service you can be on the M20 motorway in a few minutes for Ashford, Dover and London while the channel tunnel is even closer so you can pop over to France for lunch door to door within about an hour. There are excellent grammar schools in Folkestone as well as in Dover and Canterbury while there are two good primary schools in the village and another in nearby Selsted”.
