SITUATION
The Laurels is located to the west of Ashford, between the villages of Sellindge and Brabourne Lees, in pretty, unspoilt countryside at the foot of the North Downs. Both villages are served by comprehensive village stores, community halls, sports facilities, public houses/restaurants and a much sought-after primary school. The Cinque Port town of Hythe lies 5 miles away and offers a quaint high street, Waitrose and Sainsbury supermarkets, individual shops, coffee bars and restaurants. The market town of Ashford offers a wider choice of high street facilities, as does Folkestone. The historic City of Canterbury, which offers an excellent shopping centre, many cultural interests is 15.5 miles away. There is an excellent choice of state and independent schools in the surrounding areas, including grammar schools for boys and girls, most of which can be accessed via the school bus network nearby.

Recreation and sports facilities include sports centres, swimming pools, rugby and football grounds, the Julie Rose sports stadium in Kennington, a good selection of golf courses, and water sports can be found along the coast.

Connections are also good, with the high speed train operating from Ashford International to St Pancras in 37 minutes. The M20 gives access to the Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton and the Port of Dover, both of which offer services to the continent, and to the west to Maidstone and London. There is an excellent regular bus service providing access to the surrounding villages.

DESCRIPTION
The Laurels is a beautiful, detached, Victorian house dating, we believe, around 1840 of painted brick with attractive quoining under a slate roof. The property has been sympathetically extended by the current owners creating a superb orangery. The accommodation comprises entrance hall with striking black and white tiling and elegant staircase leading to the first floor. The drawing room has an attractive feature fireplace, detailed coving and central rose, and panel windows. The lovely music room also incorporates a feature fireplace, bookshelves and storage cupboards fitted into recess, coving and central rose ceiling. The impressive kitchen / dining / family room extends into the orangery, complete with large lantern with electric openers and double aspect windows overlooking the garden. In the family area there is a wood-burner, covered well with mahogany surround and glass panel with lighting, beautiful ceramic tiled flooring incorporating under-floor heating.

To the first floor is the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and luxury en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom also has en suite facilities; there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom (all bathrooms incorporate under floor heating) altogether adding style, elegance and charm for this beautiful period home.
