“The property has been in our family since 1962 and we have always loved the warm and friendly atmosphere and the tranquility. We have enjoyed being able to have our business at home and therefore if anyone in the future wants to run a business from here they will be able to do so. Sometime ago we discovered that an additional building had once been attached to our house so we were able to get planning permission to replace it but otherwise it probably wouldn’t have been possible to extend a Grade II listed building. At one stage we thought about developing the other building projects ourselves but thought it would be a bit too much at our time of life and felt this was something to hand on to the next owners. Barham is a very friendly village with an historic church and a modernised and extended village hall that offers a variety of activities and facilities. These include two large halls, a conference/meeting room and a post office as well as a useful village shop run by volunteers that sells everything you need from light bulbs to specialist local wines and homemade bread and caskes to fresh meat. There is an excellent pub/restaurant nearby, a well respected village school and an active tennis and bowls club. In the nearby village of Bridge you will find a cricket club and also a variety of shops including a small supermarket, a health food shop and a hair and beauty salon. Bridge also has a number of pubs, restaurants and a tea shop plus a dentist and a very good surgery and clinic. Broome Park Golf Club is close by for golfing aficionados and for those who enjoy riding, Covert Wood offers some splendid ‘off road’ facilities, while there are lots of great places to take the dog for a walk. Very good private and grammar schools are available in Canterbury, Folkestone and Dover and there is a regular bus service through the village to Folkestone and Canterbury while there is easy access to the A2 for Dover, Canterbury and London. We have been most fortunate in recently discovering a 1930's aerial photograph of the house showing the existence of an extensive L shaped wing leading from this reception room, an alcove that was once the doorway through is in evidence, and having been granted permission by the Council a building could be reinstated on the original site. This is a very rare and unusual discovery for a Grade 11 listed house and would provide a wonderful addition of a further three bedrooms, bathrooms, and reception rooms. Or any combination one requires.”
