Carmel Close, Canterbury
Situated in an exclusive close of just four houses this delightful, four bedroom double fronted, detached house was built by Berkley Homes in 2000 in the popular village of Chartham. With a detached garage and a recently upgraded kitchen this attractive cottage style home benefits from its village location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with easy access to a village school, shops and a train station as well as fantastic rural walks.
A solid wood front door opens into a welcoming entrance hallway with bright, wood effect laminate flooring. To the right there is a useful wc, on the left the door to the kitchen diner, beyond this the hallway widens with the stairs to the first floor directly ahead with a large storage cupboard adjacent and opposite the kitchen double doors open to the generous living room.
The beautiful double aspect kitchen/dining room was completely remodelled and refurbished by the current owners in 2019 including new pipework. With an ample range of handsome, meteor blue, soft close wall and base units, complemented by an attractive grey, wood grain effect work surface, the kitchen also boasts integrated fridge freezer and Zanussi eye level oven gas hob and extractor. The dining area has also been enhanced with additional units and work surface.
A pretty wooden frame, double glazed casement window looks out from the kitchen to the front garden. Whilst from the dining area full glazed wooden frame French doors open to the patio and give a lovely view of the rear garden.
On the other side of the entrance hallway double doors open to reveal the spacious and bright living room. With a dual aspect, the room also has an attractive wooden fire surround and mantle. Currently blanked off, the fireplace could easily be reinstated if required. Another set of double glazed, wooden framed French doors with full length window flankers provide ample natural light and a lovely view of the cottage garden.
The charming staircase takes one to a splendid u- shaped, galleried landing which gives access to three good sized bedrooms and a study/fourth bed, as well as a generous airing cupboard and the family bathroom. Directly ahead, as you step onto the landing, the pleasant bathroom benefits from vinyl flooring, an attractive white suite, including a bath with shower over, a basin and WC. A frosted window to the front provides plenty of light.
Adjacent, on the left, the peaceful master bedroom also overlooks the frontage and has a useful en-suite shower room with WC and basin. On the other side of the bathroom there is another good-sized double bedroom. Whilst at the rear of the house there are two further bedrooms, one currently being used as a study, both overlook the rear garden and attractive trees behind.
To the right hand side of the property the slate roofed, detached garage has a block paved driveway for two cars in front. A path, leading to the front door, bisects a lawned area with established flower beds.
The beautiful cottage rear garden is approximately 55 ft long. A flagstone patio spans the rear of the house with a side gate between the cottage and garage. The garage benefits from power, light and eaves storage as well as its own rear access. Beyond the patio a pretty lawn has gorgeous established flower beds each side, as well as a mature hazelnut and pear tree and a screened area for compost and storage at the rear.
The property enjoys a highly secluded position, set back from Shalmsford Street at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac of just four detached houses, yet within easy reach of the village's numerous amenities.
