The Mallards is a pretty period property in a sought after village to the south of Canterbury. Set back from the village street, the house is of attractive red brick elevations with sash windows.

Thought to date to the first half of the 19th century and to have once been a pair of cottages and the village shop, The Mallards has evolved over the years to provide a super family home. With a garage and parking, the garden is unexpectedly generous and enjoys an outlook of neighbouring countryside.

The panelled front door opens to a galleried entrance hall with an oak staircase. To the front of the house a family room enjoys a wood-burning stove, and substantial gothic arched doors open to a sitting room from which glazed doors provide views of the garden. The wide double doors allow the space to be used together or separately as desired.

A cast iron fireplace in the dining room provides an attractive focal point and stained glass windows afford colourful, reflective patterned light through to the adjoining kitchen. Fitted with an array of sleek cabinetry, the kitchen provides a link through to a useful boot room and well-appointed utility and storage area. A hatch in the kitchen gives access to the cellar.

Four bedrooms and the family bathroom are arranged around the generous first floor landing area. The principal bedroom has a decorative fireplace, fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. A dressing room adjoins bedroom 2,which enjoys views over the garden.

Lower Hardres is a quiet rural village to the south of Canterbury, with a thriving farm shop, local church and modern village hall. The cathedral city of Canterbury offers a diverse array of cultural, leisure and shopping facilities. There is an excellent range of schooling in both private and state sectors.

The area has excellent road and rail communications, with the M20 (Junction 11) to the south and the A2 at either Canterbury or Bridge connecting to the M2 at Brenley Corner. The High Speed train service connects Canterbury West to London St Pancras in under an hour and Ashford International to London St Pancras from around 36 minutes. Links to the Continent are provided by The Port of Dover and The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone.

The Mallards is approached over a drive to the side of the house, which provides parking in front of the detached double garage. There is a log store and a greenhouse tucked away behind the garage.

Immediately behind the house a large terrace provides a sheltered dining spot. A brick built fishpond sits at the edge of the terrace with lawns stretching away from the house.

The second half of the garden widens out and has been thoughtfully planted. A colourful selection of mature shrubs and trees divide the garden into different areas, providing structure and interest, with open views over neighbouring countryside.
