Property Information

Tucked right away with no near neighbours and surrounded by picturesque countryside is ‘Riverside Manor’; a most unique Dutch gabled residence with beautiful gardens and its very own 40’ mooring onto the River Stour.
Covering an impressive 2711 sq ft (251.9 sq m), the original property dates back to 1906 and was sympathetically extended in 2018, creating the ‘North Wing’ which offers potential for self contained annexe accommodation owing to the fact it has its own private entrance.
The newly added ‘North Wing’ has a large drawing room with a triple aspect and proves to be the perfect room for entertaining. There are two double bedrooms, each with countryside views and one with access to a balcony and loft room. A contemporary shower room and a huge utility room/inner hall completes the ‘North Wing’ and connects seamlessly into the original part of the house, the ‘South Wing’. Here we have two reception rooms, a study, cloakroom and a kitchen/breakfast room to the ground floor whilst the first floor presents two double bedrooms with far reaching views across fields and a large family bathroom. There are two porches at the front and back of the property.
Moving outside and beautiful gardens encompass the property, providing various areas to enjoy the sunshine and tranquility. There is a viewing deck on the south elevation which is the perfect sunbathing spot whilst taking full advantage of those stunning views and a small bridge crosses a dyke to a summer house with views across the gardens; the perfect place to unwind with a book and glass of something nice.
A fully insulated studio is currently used as a gym and has its own power supply. This may be ideal for those working from home who need to be away from the day to day busy household.
Not many properties boast direct access to a river, but this property not only has access to the River Stour, it has access to a secure mooring at the end of the private track. You can close the gate behind you and could quite literally be anywhere.
Riverside Manor offers an exceptionally unique opportunity for those looking for a rural lifestyle with no near neighbours yet within close proximity of the Thanet coastal towns and cathedral city of Canterbury in each direction.
