A beautiful 5 bed detached family home with spacious & flexible accommodation, close to the city centre. Idyllic views over the River Stour, established gardens & driveway.
This stunning detached family home is situated on the outskirts of Canterbury with the most glorious of outlooks over the River Stour and the Hambrook Marsh Nature Reserve. The new owners can really enjoy the best of both worlds in this amazing home, with excellent transport links and amenities on your doorstep; then as soon as you step into the magnificent garden it feels like you are in the middle of the countryside - your very own paradise! The spacious and versatile accommodation comprises large entrance hallway with a staircase leading to the first floor. The spacious kitchen is perfectly positioned to absorb the breath-taking views to the rear and has a large selection of white storage units with integrated appliances including two ovens, an electric hob, a dishwasher, a fridge, a freezer and a microwave. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and a side door leading to the rear garden. The generous open plan living room/dining room has a lovely bay window to the front of the house and access to the garden at the rear; there is a delightful open fireplace to enjoy in the winter months. The ground floor is completed by a further reception room, kitchen and shower room; with a second staircase leading to two double bedrooms. This lends itself nicely to become a separate annexe ideal for families buying with their parents. Upstairs in the main section of the house there are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a separate WC. The owners have planning permission for a very large orangery along the back of the property which would create a wonderful transitional space from the house to the garden.
Ashford road is 0.9 miles from Canterbury's cultural city centre where you find an array of shops and boutiques, along with fine dining and restaurants serving dishes from across the globe. You will also find a collection of stores within 0.5 of a mile including Morrisons, Argos, Dunelm Mill, Boots and Mothercare. To complete Canterbury's unique experience, there are welcoming pubs, wine bars and the Marlowe Theatre which is not only an iconic modern building, but it is now a prominent stop on the map for all new talent and existing productions. Canterbury is a city steeped in tradition; the stunning Cathedral dominating the skyline and the vast heritage and culture hidden in the original architecture. Canterbury East 0.8 miles away from the property and Canterbury West station is a 1.5 miles walk with a much shorter route along the River Stour. Both stations have links into London but the high speed service from Canterbury West will get you to London St Pancras in under an hour.
The exceptional rear garden backs onto the River Stour and Hambrook Marsh Nature Reserve with its lakes and rugged marshland creating a unique and breath-taking view one can only dream of. The established garden is mainly laid to lawn with an array of mature trees, shrubs and plants including an apple tree and a stunning willow trailing over the river. There are plenty of spots where you can position a bench to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while admiring the marvellous views and soaking up the peace and tranquillity of this wonderful outside space. If you like to host then this garden is perfect for inviting friends and family over for a barbecue and creates the perfect setting for alfresco dining. The garden also has three sheds and a brick built workshop with plumbing and utility space. To the front there is a large driveway with plenty of off road parking.
