Burley Cottage is an attractive detached period property dating from circa 1800 set in an idyllic location in the hamlet of Ewell Minnis. Ewell Minnis lies north of the village of Alkham, which is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its village green and the well regarded The Marquis at Alkham gastro-pub. A wider range of facilities can be found at Whitfield and Dover. There are many lovely bridal paths which makes the area ideal for hacking. There are excellent connections and easy access onto the A20 linking the M20, giving access to the Channel Tunnel at Cheriton and the Port of Dover. Rail connections with stations at Kearsney & Dover Priory now operate a high speed service into London St Pancras. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 11 miles away with excellent shopping facilities and a good choice of schools in both the private and state sectors along with colleges and universities. Further well regarded grammar schools can be found in Folkestone and Dover. Burley Cottage has been extensively refurbished and extended over the years and offers spacious light and versatile accommodation which has been completed to a high specification. Still retaining many wonderful period features the accommodation comprises large triple aspect sitting room, excellent well equipped kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, snug, boot room, utility room and shower room (the tiled areas of the ground floor have underfloor heating) with the added benefit of a usable cellar/office on the lower ground floor. The first floor provides a master bedroom with dressing area, three further double bedrooms and a spacious modern bathroom. Externally the cottage sits within manicured and established gardens with further paddocks, grounds and a small copse all totalling approximately 3.6 acres. The grounds may lend themselves as a potential building plot and further enquiries should be made via Dover District Council.
