Description
Old Renville Farmhouse is a beautiful restored farmhouse which we believe was originally built as a resting place for the Pilgrims visiting Canterbury Cathedral around the 12th Century. Over the years, the property has been extended and in the 18th Century was divided to create two cottages. The current owners, around 20 years ago, have completely and sympathetically restored the property back to its original state before the 18th Century creating a superb detached family home.

The accommodation comprises of entrance porch opening through to a fabulous open plan family/dining/games room, with exposed brick feature walls, inglenook feature fireplace and wood burner, attractive tile flooring, French doors which open onto a courtyard and central staircase leading to the first floor.

Evidently, the snug is the earlier part of the house with beamed ceilings and exposed flint to all walls. The lovely sitting room also incorporates an impressive inglenook fireplace, sash windows and wide French doors opening into the conservatory.

In addition, there is a well fitted kitchen/ breakfast room with range of matching base and wall mounted cabinets, Aga, integrated appliances, walk-in larder, exposed beam ceiling, granite worktop and attractive tile flooring. Also on the ground floor is a study with en suite WC and separate utility room.

To the rear of the property is a lovely conservatory which is glazed on brick plinth, attractive tile flooring and wide doors opening onto the sun terrace.

To the first floor is the master bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, all having en suite facilities and two of the double bedrooms have a range of built-in wardrobes. In addition, there is a separate laundry room.
