Red Lion House Honey Hill Blean CT5
A rare opportunity to acquire a family home of significant architectural and historical interest. Dating back to c1640, this was originally a coaching inn on the turnpike road from Whitstable to Canterbury; in later times, the home of Oliver Postgate, the creator of the much loved children's television show, Bagpuss, before passing to the current family. On the market for the first time in over 30 years, the house boasts architectural features including inglenook fireplaces, mortise and tenon beams and a Kent peg-tile roof.
Of particular delight is the surrounding gardens and the expansive land to the rear, an ancient meadow estimated at 2.3 acres, which backs onto Blean woods.
The property requires some improvements and has the potential to be remodelled internally to utilise all the available living space to the full.Request Property Details Email
