An ideal "lifestyle change" property comprising a 4 double bedroom / 5 bathroom detached house, touring caravan site, self-contained holiday let / potential annexe, stables & outbuildings, set in circa 2 acres (tbc) in a highly desirable tourist location on the fringes of the village of Woodchurch.

“Shamwari”, which means friendly greeting, offers someone the rare opportunity to purchase an established business with huge potential for growth set in a picturesque location with stunning far reaching views in the heart of the Kent countryside. The current owners have lovingly renovated the house over 12 years and developed the business over the last 4 years and it comes to the market in pristine condition with a fully managed website, online booking system, regular repeat customers and all the booking and enquiries for 2024.

The property comprises a clearly defined square shaped parcel of land, thought to be just under 2 acres in total (to be confirmed), which is bounded on two sides by arable land. As you approach from the lane, however, you can have no idea just how much there is on offer here. The house itself is deceptively spacious, with versatile 4 double bedroom / 5 bathroom accommodation extending to just over 3,000 square feet, and would be perfect as a fully operational B and B or as a house for a large family / multi-generational living. The caravan site, which is a certified member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, currently has 5 touring grass pitches and there is also a very well presented detached 1 bedroom self-contained holiday let with its own outside space which would make the perfect annexe if desired, subject to planning. In addition, there are two stables and a tack room, a two bay carport with an enclosed garage / workshop attached and a further carport with a large locked store attached. All of the outbuildings are in very good condition. This property also benefits from a huge amount of off-street parking and a well tended mature private garden where there is a summerhouse / studio, raised vegetable beds and large potting shed, just waiting for someone who wants to live the good life!

This substantial property could provide for a variety of lifestyles and would be ideal for buyers looking for a business opportunity where they can also enjoy a peaceful and idyllic rural existence close to good local amenities, schools and transport systems.

Shamwari House Main Dwelling
This deceptively spacious, very practical home with its well-proportioned living accommodation and 4 double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom facilities, has been designed with modern living in mind. Although it would make a wonderful main family residence and would certainly support dual or multi-generational occupancy, it could also be very easily adapted for Bed and Breakfast guests and would therefore bring in an additional income to that already generated on the site if desired.

Holiday Let (The Old Goat House)
Situated to the back of the main residence, this very stylish detached 1 double bedroom holiday let with spacious open plan living area, generous shower room, courtyard garden and hot tub, already provides a regular income and is therefore a tried and tested commercial opportunity for any new owner NB: We are advised that this holiday let receives consistent 4.97 / 5 star ratings on AirBnB. It would also work equally well as an annexe, subject of course to the necessary permissions.

The property is approached over an existing access where there is some parking to the front and side of the main house. An electrically operated gate leads to a large secure gravel driveway area where there is further extensive parking and a good range of very well built and kept outbuildings.

For car, equestrian, outdoor and DIY enthusiasts, there is much to get excited about. There is a double cart style open garage with enclosed garage / workshop attached, a smaller open cart style garage with large secure store attached and two stables with attached tack room, which could be used for a variety of purposes. To the immediate rear of the main house is a generous patio area, perfect for summer living and entertaining, and beyond that, a large mature garden, perfect for the enjoyment of children, gardeners and pets alike. A summerhouse currently used as an art studio with light, power and heating and large potting shed complete the outbuildings on offer.

Caravan Site
Situated in the field furthest away from the house are the five grass pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, each with their own electric hook up and with water points and drainage holding tank nearby. The site has a 5 star listing with the Caravan and Motorhome Club and has wonderful far reaching views towards the North Downs. Other facilities for the caravaners include a court for petanque / boules and a large carp pond, where visitors are encouraged to feed the fish. The site is open April through tpo October (weather permitting).
