Full property description

A delightful semi detached three-bedroom cottage that has been beautifully extended and lovingly decorated to offer a large family kitchen diner with bi-fold doors to the 130 ft rear garden. Swale view is in the most idyllic location and enjoys impressive views out to the Estuary and rolling countryside, yet conveniently located to Hernhill Primary school, the village church and local pub.

The solid wood front door open into a pitched roof inner lobby, perfect for housing shoes and wellies. There is a stain glass door that opens into a charming entrance hall with smartly decorated cloak room. Wood effect flooring has been fitted and runs seamlessly throughout the downstairs space.

From the hallway to the left there is a kitchen breakfast room that was extended in 2012 to create an open plan family area, this is perfectly connected to the garden through the double glazed bi-fold doors and there is a magnificent sky lantern which sits above the dining area. The kitchen has an array of floor and wall units, finished with oak work tops and attractive mosaic tiles, the units are complemented with a small kitchen island, double ceramic Belfast sink and several integrated appliances including a double range stove oven.

In addition to the bifold doors there is access to the patio in the side return which is a lovely private place to enjoy alfresco dining.

Adjacent to this room there is a dual aspect sitting room with wood burning stove nestled beneath an oak bressummer and exposed brick.

To the first floor one will find a well-appointed family bathroom and three generously proportioned bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are slightly larger and have characterful cast iron fireplaces and views of the garden and countryside beyond.


To the front of the property a block paved driveway allows parking for several cars. There is a pathway that leads one to the front door and to a side access of the garden.

The rear garden is beautifully connected to the house via the bi-fold doors or the access at the side of the kitchen where there is a lovely sandstone patio which wraps around the rear of the property.

The lawn stretches out to the countryside that sits peacefully in the distance, here you will enjoy the delicate shade from the establish apple tree that sits at the foot of your 130 ft rear garden.

A new summer house has recently been installed with electricity allowing this to become a perfect home office or gym.


Swale View is situated in the picturesque village of Hernhill, nestled within some beautiful countryside with outstanding views over the surrounding orchards and rolling farmland.

The village itself lies approximately three miles to the east of Faversham and only seven miles from the cathedral city of Canterbury and has a picturesque village green, overlooked by a fifteenth century Church of St Michael and the historic Red Lion public house. The village is also served by another pub, The Three Horseshoes, and an outstanding primary school.

Nearby Blean Woods, which have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, cover more than eleven square miles are ideal for a peaceful walk. The next closest village is Boughton-under-Blean, who benefits from another good primary school, a post office, a village store, several pubs and a restaurant. Hernhill is also close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network for both London and the coast.

The nearby town of Faversham offers a far wider range of shopping, leisure, and recreational amenities, including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a museum and numerous good pubs and restaurants.

The town is served by a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which being the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. A wider selection of state, grammar and private schools can be found and Canterbury and both Faversham and Canterbury have mainline stations with a high speed link to London St Pancras.

The bustling seaside town of Whitstable is approximately five miles away and is famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside
