    About this property

    • Coleman House is an attractive detached, double fronted Grade II listed house, which is understood to date from the early 19th century with a later 20th century extension incorporating a catslide roof, although earlier undocumented medieval origins are indicated.

      Occupying a convenient and central position, within the Conservation Area of historic Elham village, and now coming to the market for the first time in about 40 years, the property offers internal accommodation arranged over two floors together with a useful cellar, whilst outside there is an attractive enclosed south westerly facing garden. A separate path, also owned by the property, gives access to a parking area which is suitable for two cars.

      Reception rooms include the sitting and dining rooms, both with deep bay sash windows to the front elevation and the former having an open fireplace and fitted shelving. A trap door from the dining room opens to the cellar. There is a southerly facing breakfast/family room with wood flooring and inglenook fireplace with original bread oven. An arch leads through to the kitchen, which is equipped with fitted cupboards, a four ring electric hob, electric wall mounted oven and space for free standing appliances. There is an adjoining utility room with space for white goods, and completing the ground floor is a flexible study, coat and boot lobby and WC.

      Situated over the first floor are four bedrooms, three of which benefit from fitted or built-in cupboards and one having access to eaves storage. The main bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room with a family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms. A loft hatch provides ladder access to a double loft.

      Coleman House is approached via steps, flanked by planted flower beds. A side path leads to the garden located to the rear of the house, and is laid to lawn with mature shrubs, specimen trees and a partially covered paved terrace with vine covered pergola.
