A handsome double fronted detached house, situated in a small cul-de-sac of just four similar houses in the popular village of Chartham. The village has numerous local amenities, including shops, a village school and a mainline station and is surrounded by some wonderful countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The property was built in 1996 by Berkeley Homes, with a traditional and sympathetically styled faade, alongside a spacious and well-planned interior, set beneath an attractive slate roof.
A pillar-box red front door opens into an entrance hall, with a coats cupboard, a cloakroom, wood effect flooring and stairs to the first floor. A set of double doors open into an impressive dual aspect living room, which runs the entire depth of the house. This room also has wood effect flooring and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. From here, a set of double glazed French doors open into a UPVC double glazed conservatory with wood effect flooring and splendid views over the gardens.
The kitchen/dining room is to the right of the entrance hall and is also a wonderful dual aspect room, with double glazed French doors opening onto the rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of modern wall and floor units, set around granite effect work surfaces, integrated appliances and a ceramic tiled floor.
On the first floor, a central galleried landing leads to three, generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. This has been fitted with a modern white suite and finished with ceramic wall tiles and wood effect flooring.
The master bedroom is a particularly good size dual aspect room with wood effect flooring, an en-suite shower room and lovely views over the garden to the rear.
There is also a large, part-boarded loft, which offers the potential for conversion, as the neighbouring property has already done so, thus creating a further two bedrooms.
The property is approached via a block paved driveway which provides parking for several cars and leads to a detached garage. This has an up and over door and power connected to it. There is a pretty front garden, with raised beds and a wood store. The rear garden measures approximately 31 ft and is mainly laid to lawn, with beautiful and well stocked beds and borders containing a rich variety of flowers and shrubs. There is a paved patio area adjacent to the house and a courtesy door which leads to the garage. The garden is very well established and enjoys a particularly good degree of privacy.
The property enjoys a highly secluded position, set back from Shalmsford Street in a quiet cul-de-sac of just four detached houses, yet within easy reach of the village's numerous amenities.
The ancient village of Chartham is four miles west of the cathedral city of Canterbury. It is located on the Great Stour River and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and farmland, including apple and pear orchards and is within an Area of Outstanding Beauty. It is served by a village hall, a doctor's surgery, a village store, a post office, pubs and a primary school. There is a railway station with easy access to Canterbury and there is also a regular bus service to Canterbury and Ashford and a cycle path runs along the banks of the river Stour all the way into Canterbury.
The nearby cathedral city of Canterbury also has a wide range of amenities, including excellent shopping and leisure facilities, primary and secondary schools as well as three universities, two hospitals and two railway stations. Canterbury also offers superb leisure facilities, along with a diverse selection of restaurants and international eateries.
The thriving market town of Ashford also offers excellent shopping, recreational and educational amenities, along with a high speed rail link from Ashford International Station which reaches London St Pancras in just 38 minutes. The area is very well served by road connections, with the A2/M2 accessible from nearby Canterbury and the M20 (which can be joined at Ashford) both connecting with London and the coast.
