Overview

GUIDE PRICE £1,200,000

Property Description: Guide Price £1,200,000. This incredible five bedroom detached family home occupies a generous plot extending to approximately one acre. The property was lovingly built by the owners father 46 years ago and has been adapted over the years to provide two separate living spaces, comfortably housing them and their daughters family all under one roof. This flexible and versatile layout is perfect for families who are looking to combine assets but could easily be transformed back into one large main residence. The bright and welcoming entrance hallway serves the main living space but also has access to the second living space.

Main living space: The immaculately presented accommodation comprises an entrance hallway with a cloakroom, a downstairs shower room and stairs leading to the first floor. From here there is access to a spacious living room with French doors leading to the garden which let in plenty of natural light. The room is tastefully decorated with neutral tones creating a calm and relaxing space to unwind after a long day. The open plan, double aspect kitchen/dining room is perfect for entertaining or enjoying a family meal together. A Stanley Range cooker takes pride of place in the centre of the room with a beautiful, inglenook style surround. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of white wall mounted and base storage units under Granite worktops with a feature island. Integrated appliances include a double oven and a ceramic hob. There is space for a freestanding fridge/freezer and the sink is perfectly placed under a large window with glorious views over the garden. Off the kitchen/dining room there is a lobby which has access to the garden and a study which is perfect for those that require a separate space to work from home. This was formerly a utility room and could easily be converted back if desired. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom has an en-suite shower room. This floor is completed by a modern family bathroom with a whirlpool bath and a vanity storage unit.

Second living space: The ground floor has a wonderful open plan living/dining room with a feature gas fire in the style of a log burner. The double aspect dining area has French doors leading out to the garden and links to the kitchen which is well equipped with an integrated Bosch double oven, a Bosch microwave/oven, a Bosch dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge/freezer. The kitchen also has a door to access the garden. Stairs from the living room lead to a large landing which gives access to a fully tiled shower room and two double bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a whirlpool bath.

Outside: The main living space has a large fully enclosed rear garden which is predominately laid to lawn. Mature hedging and trees along the boundary provide a leafy outlook and a high level of privacy and seclusion. There is a lovely playhouse for the children and plenty of space for them to play while the adults relax on the raised patio/ entertainment area. The second living space has a stunning cottage style garden with a shingle path meandering through tremendous and well established planting; this is a gardeners delight and a haven for bees and butterflies. There are various seating areas to sit back, relax and soak up the peace and tranquility of this idyllic outside space. Further to these formal gardens there is a wonderful vegetable garden for those that like to grow their own along with two ponds which are home to around 35 Coy Carp. There are two greenhouses and multiple sheds dotted around for storage. The carport/barn has parking for four cars and the driveway provides further secure parking for at least eight cars. A two storey double garage has a games room above and could easily be converted into another dwelling or air bnb subject to the appropriate planning consents. There is a second access point to the property from New House Close.

Location: Iffin Lane is a sought after, semi rural lane on the outskirts of Canterbury with beautiful countryside views. The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it. The city lies on the River Stour and boasts two universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities. A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city’s economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King’s School. Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city’s famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.
