St Ethelburga, Staple Street Road, Dunkirk
A generously extended and immaculately presented detached residence, situated in a secluded plot with ample parking, garaging and a superb log cabin home office. St Ethelburga was built during the 1960's, however it has seen numerous improvements in recent years, including a stunning rear extension and orangery, creating a far more stylish and contemporary feel to the interior.
A UPVC double glazed front door opens into an entrance hall with an attractive Victorian style tiled floor. From here, a glazed door opens into a central entrance hall with wood effect laminate flooring and a walk-in coats cupboard. There are four, generously proportioned bedrooms to the right of the entrance hall. The main bedroom is a particularly good size double room, with a range of fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite shower room.
To the left of the entrance hall, there is an elegant sitting room, with a limestone fireplace with a gas fire and a beautifully fitted family bathroom. This has a contemporary white suite, including a double ended bath and stylish ceramic tiling.
To the rear of the property, there is a spectacular open plan living space, with a kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room and a family room. The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with an extensive array of traditionally styled, high quality wall and floor units, set around quartz work surfaces and a range of appliances, including a range cooker, a fridge/freezer, a wine fridge, a microwave, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The centre piece is a splendid quartz topped island and breakfast bar, with an inset sink and an instant hot, boiling or filtered water tap. The kitchen/breakfast room has beautiful porcelain tiled floor, which continues into the family room. This is set within an impressive orangery, with a lantern window and double glazed sliding doors which open onto the rear garden.
The property is approached via a set of twin five bar gates, which open onto a gravelled driveway, which provides parking for numerous cars. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, with pretty flower and shrub borders and a paved pathway and patio area. The rear garden is also laid to lawn, with a full width sandstone patio area and a superb log cabin. This has power, heating and air conditioning and makes an ideal home office. At the rear of the garden, there is a detached garage (also with power connected) and another gated driveway, accesses via a track which runs along the side of St Ethelburga.
The property is situated on a country lane, surrounded by orchards and lovely countryside on the edge of the popular village of Dunkirk. It is approximately three miles east of Faversham and five miles west of Canterbury and is situated next to Blean Woods, which are a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Dunkirk has a new village hall, two garden centres, a farm shop and the Red Lion public house. Its neighbouring village of Boughton-under-Blean has a long main street with a post office, village store, churches, a well regarded primary school, hairdressers and several pubs and restaurants. The villages are very closely linked and share a real sense of community.
Dunkirk is close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network. There is a regular bus service through the village to Canterbury and Faversham and the railway stations at both Canterbury and Faversham offer a regular service to London Victoria and Charing Cross as well as a high speed link to London St Pancras.
The nearby town of Faversham has a thriving High Street with a variety of independent traders as well as well known brands and three times a week the town has a bustling market. The town has several well regarded primary schools as well as the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and good leisure facilities including an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a cinema and a large recreation ground.
The cathedral city of Canterbury offers an even wider array of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including a selection of state and private schools, three universities, the White Friars Shopping Centre, the Marlowe theatre and two hospitals.
