Full property description

A charming detached, three bedroom house, set back with an attractive frontage and rural views to the rear in the enchanting village of Selling. With parking for six cars, a substantial garage and flexible accommodation including an additional reception room and open plan family space this traditionally styled home also has a delightful established rear garden.

Built in 1985 and subsequently extended, this traditionally styled property has the feel of the earlier twentieth century. A frosted glazed UPVC door opens into a spacious, bright entrance hallway, with attractive Karndean wood effect flooring. Directly ahead is the fully tiled WC, with a useful storage cupboard adjacent, ideal for shoes. To one’s right, a step up leads to a versatile, bright and airy, dual aspect reception/guest room with its own access to the front garden. Whilst to the left are the stairs to the first floor with a storage cupboard underneath. Beyond this is the door to the dining area.

The handsome Karndean flooring continues into the dining area. A step down to the rear takes one to the fantastic dual aspect garden room with beautiful ornate, wooden framed, arch paned windows overlooking the garden, with a door to the side. This space flows into the rear lounge, with a delightful oriel bay window overlooking the garden and has integral access to the garage. Whilst the main living room boasts an attractive brick fireplace with bressummer, housing a regularly serviced log burner. The kitchen, accessed from the dining area, has a good range of farmhouse style wall and base units with ample roll top work surface and a useful breakfast bar overlooking the front garden. The kitchen also benefits from an LPG gas fed cooker and a slimline dishwasher. A part glazed door opens to a lobby with an external door to the side and a pantry cupboard.

On the first floor a large galleried landing gives access to an airing cupboard, two generous double bedrooms and a good sized box room, currently configured as a dressing room with fitted wardrobes overlooking the rear garden and beautiful rural views beyond. The main bedroom also at the rear has a wonderful en-suite shower room with stylish WC and vanity unit. Refitted along with the en-suite in 2019 the family bathroom features a lovely double ended bath with a separate power shower and a smart combined vanity/WC suite.


The front garden is approx. 80ft long with a five-bar wooden gate opening to the driveway with attractive, mature trees and shrubs to the front providing cover. The drive terminates at the garage, whilst a further lawned area with well stocked borders flanks a path to the front door. To the side of the garage a gated path leads to the rear garden.

The rear garden is approx. 55ft long. A patio area adjacent to the garden room gives access to a shed to the side of the house with the lawn to the rear. Established hedges and shrubs, as well as a cherry and apple tree provide a wonderful feeling of privacy.


Laburnum Cottage sits on a quiet country lane, backing onto the grounds of a manor house with rolling countryside beyond, on the edge of the sought after village of Selling, which lies close to the market town of Faversham, on the edge of the Kent Downs.

The village has a mainline train station, a beautiful 14th century Church, a cricket club, two village pubs, The White Lion and The Rose & Crown and a well regarded Church of England primary school which has an outstanding reputation.

The nearby market town of Faversham (approx. 4 miles) has a wide range of high street shops and independent retailers which adorn its attractive high street and its bustling market square. The town also offers excellent leisure facilities with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a large park and recreation ground, a museum and numerous pubs and restaurants. It has a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which being the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School.

Faversham has a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross and a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras. The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London which is approx. 48 miles, the Cathedral City of Canterbury approx. 9 miles away and the Kent coast.

Canterbury is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a bustling city centre offering a wide array of High Street brands alongside independent retailers, cafes, international restaurants and the Whitefriars Shopping Centre.
