Type: Detached House
Property Description: This stunning five bedroom detached house was built in 1972 and has been thoughtfully extended over the years to create the perfect family home. The property is ideally positioned along a sought after road of executive houses, yet within easy reach of Canterbury city centre with a vast array of amenities and leisure facilities. The spacious and flexible accommodation is immaculately presented throughout with high end fixtures and fittings, neutral décor and quality flooring. The welcoming entrance hallway has a storage cupboard and a bespoke Neville Johnson staircase leading to the first floor. From here there is access to three large reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. The living room is the heart of this wonderful home with a superb glass extension to the rear giving beautiful views of the garden while allowing in tremendous natural light. There is a gas fired log effect stove and lovely teak parquet flooring. The German designer kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of white, wall mounted and base storage units. Integrated Neff appliances include an electric oven, a microwave, an induction hob and a dishwasher. There is further space for a fridge/freezer. A separate utility room has a butler sink and space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. A porch was incorporated into the utility room in 2008, ideal when returning from a country walk with muddy boots or paws. The ground floor is completed by a shower room. Upstairs there are four large double bedrooms, three of which have built in wardrobes. The single bedroom could be used as a study for those who require space to work from home. The main bedroom has a triple aspect and an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom completes this floor with detailed panelling and a white three piece suite. The attic has been boarded to provide useful storage space and has a ladder and light. The property also benefits from a water softener situated in the garage.
Outside: This stunning property sits on a generous plot of just under half an acre with extensive, beautifully manicured gardens that would not look out of place at a luxury manor house or wedding venue. The fully enclosed rear garden has a sunny south facing aspect and a vibrant mixture of mature trees and shrubs giving a high level of privacy and seclusion as well as providing a haven for garden birds and wildlife. There are several large borders of roses and perennials. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn, apart from a large patio as you step out from the living room. Here there is plenty of space for outdoor seating to entertain family and friends with some alfresco dining in the warmer months or simply relax whilst enjoying the peace and tranquility of this superb outside space. A beautiful wooden gazebo takes pride of place in the centre of the garden providing a more sheltered entertaining/dining area. At the bottom of the garden there is a vegetable patch and a cedar greenhouse for those who like to grow their own fruit and vegetables, a wildlife pond and a cladded pottery studio/workshop with full power and heating. To one side of the property there is a large, useful shed measuring 6m x 2m with power and lighting. To the front of the property there is a single garage, a double car port and a driveway with further parking for three cars. Solar panels have been fitted to the property and both the panels and the income stream will be included in the agreed purchase price. The income stream generates approximately £2300 tax free per annum and has a further 15 years to run. Further information will be available through the conveyancing process.
