Guide Price £930,000 FOR SALE


The property is well located on the edge of the village; set back from the road, yet within easy access of all amenities.
Lyminge is a bustling and popular village offering a wide range of amenities including tea rooms, newsagents/general stores, public house, restaurants, takeaways, two doctors' surgeries, church, pharmacy and excellent primary school. There is also an active community hall, sports field and library.
Bus services run through the centre of the village, providing easy access to the south, to the Channel Tunnel town of Folkestone and the Ancient Cinque Port Town of Hythe on the coast, and to the north to the University and Cathedral City of Canterbury.
These offer an excellent range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including top ranking Grammar and Private Secondary Schools, together with high speed main line train services to London with the travel time to St. Pancras having been reduced to some 60 minutes.
A little further afield will be found the expanding business centre of Ashford, from where the capital may be reached in some 37 minutes and, via the International Station and Eurostar connections, there is direct and easy access deep into Europe.

The Property

Mount Pleasant is an imposing Grade II listed country house, full of interest and charm, having been a former village farmhouse dating from the early 17th Century with some later additions added in the 18th & 19th Centuries.
Positioned well within its own beautiful landscaped gardens and grounds of approx. 1.2 acres Mount Pleasant boasts some wonderful features to include exposed beams, attractive fireplaces, oak flooring, high ceilings, wood panelling, decorative picture rails and many other interesting characteristics typical of a superb period home of this calibre.
Outside there is further interest in the form of two adjoining barns, triple garage, car barn and further outbuilding/stores etc.
Plans were in place to create a grand dining hall here with vaulted ceiling and a raised octagonal orangery in which to enjoy the beautiful established gardens. Planning permission has now lapsed but could be re-instated if desired.
There is ample space for the parking of several vehicles; along with a timber clad detached building presently used as offices, with three rooms, which offers further potential as an Annexe subject to any necessary permissions.
