A handsome double fronted five bedroom detached residence, set within generous and secluded grounds of approximately 0.25 acres, with a variety of outbuildings, including a superb log cabin/home office. Jubilee House dates back to circa 1820 and still has some wonderful period features, however it has since been generously extended and much improved over the years and now offers spacious and well appointed accommodation over two floors.
The front door opens into a splendid reception hall, with wood effect flooring, an exposed brick chimney breast and a wide staircase, which rises to the first floor. To the left of the reception hall, there is a stunning, triple aspect sitting room, with a limestone fireplace with an inset gas fire and double glazed French doors to the garden.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is an impressive, open plan kitchen/dining room which also enjoys a triple aspect and has French doors to the garden. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of farmhouse style wall and floor units, set around granite effect work surfaces, space for appliances and a breakfast bar peninsular. A door also leads from the kitchen to a timber addition, which serves as a useful boot room.
On the first floor, a central landing leads to five, generously proportioned bedrooms, and a well-appointed family bathroom with a modern, white suite. The main bedroom is a particularly good size double room, with built-in triple wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The whole property is beautifully presented, with a light, airy interior and a generosity of space throughout.
Jubilee House sits within a generous and secluded plot of approximately 0.25 acres and is approached via a set of twin timber gates. These open onto a pretty front garden, with well stocked beds and borders and ample parking for at least four cars. A secure side gate opens into the main gardens, which wrap around the side and the rear of the house. These are mainly laid to lawn, with mature hedging to the borders, which create a tremendous degree of privacy and seclusion. A sandstone patio area also wraps around the side and rear of the house, providing an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. There are various outbuildings, including a superb log cabin/home office, a summerhouse, a shed and even an old WWll bunker.
The property is situated on a country lane, surrounded by orchards and lovely countryside on the edge of the popular village of Dunkirk. It is approximately three miles east of Faversham and five miles west of Canterbury and is situated next to Blean Woods, which are a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Its neighbouring village of Boughton-under-Blean has a long main street with a post office, village store, churches, a well regarded primary school, hairdressers and several pubs and restaurants. The villages are very closely linked and share a real sense of community.
Dunkirk is close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network. There is a regular bus service through the village to Canterbury and Faversham and the railway stations at both Canterbury and Faversham offer a regular service to London Victoria and Charing Cross as well as a high speed link to London St Pancras.
