"We have taken great pride and care in refurbishing this family home to a very high standard while ensuring it is all in keeping with the original character of the property. This has even included having a specialist carpenter re create the coving to match the original where needed. However we are now starting a new chapter in our lives and hope that another family will enjoy everything we have done to create this beautiful home. We love the location and are delighted with the local primary school in River that is rated Outstanding by Ofsted. The village of River creates a friendly community with a number of activities in the village hall as well as a Co-op mini market, a greengrocer, pharmacy and post office. There is also the Railway Bell gastropub nearby and a regular bus service between Dover and Canterbury where you will find excellent grammar and private schools. The area around River is delightful and comes with the accolade of being an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Kearsney Abbey Park and Russell Gardens along the Alkham Valley are not far for walks with the dog and children and the wild life is second to none with a wide variety of birds alighting on the ornamental lakes with squirrels and other small animals frequenting the park. Motoring enthusiasts can enjoy racing at Lydden and sailors can join the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club while golfers have a variety of choices from the Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club to the Championship courses at Sandwich and Deal. It is also a very convenient spot as we are about a minute's drive to the A 2 for Canterbury and London or Dover Docks and the Channel Tunnel for the Continent. There is also a large Tescos in a retail park nearby as well as other well known retail stores, while Dover includes a number of individual shops, restaurants and the mainline station incorporating the high speed rail although we are even closer to Kearsney station for direct access to Canterbury".
