An exceptional new home, built to an exacting standard and situated in a most prestigious low density development near Canterbury. A handsome and traditionally styled exterior, with attractive brickwork and weatherboarded elevations offers a delicate contrast to the stylish and highly contemporary interior contained within.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, with a cloakroom, a coats cupboard and an elegant staircase which rises to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a generously proportioned dual aspect sitting room, with an inset wood burning stove and double glazed sliding doors which overlook the rear garden.
To the left of the entrance hall, there is a further reception room, with built-in storage, an attractive bay window and serves as an ideal office/family room.
The open plan kitchen/dining room is to the rear of the property and is a wonderful space, with a wall of double glazed floor to ceiling windows and another wall of double glazed sliding doors which open onto the patio area. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of bespoke wall and floor units, set around beautiful white Carrera marble work surfaces, a range of NEFF integrated appliances and a concealed marble-topped larder cupboard. The centre piece for the kitchen is a superb Carrera marble topped island and breakfast bar, with an inset Blanco sink.
On the first floor, a large galleried landing leads to three double bedrooms (each with built-in wardrobes) and a luxuriously finished family bathroom. This has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite which includes a bath and separate shower enclosure and has been finished with rich 'Antique Ivory' marble wall tiles and 'Blossom White' floor tiles.
The master bedroom forms part of an impressive master suite, which includes a generous double bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe and an equally well appointed en-suite shower room. The whole property is presented to an exceptionally high standard and offers a breath-taking quality of finish.
The property is set back from the road behind an attractive front garden, whilst to the side of the property, a large block-paved driveway provides ample parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage.
The rear garden is partly walled and enjoys a high degree of privacy, as it backs on to an ecology area. The garden is laid to lawn, with mature and well stocked borders, whilst a pretty stone path leads from the patio to a covered bench and seating area.
Radstone Gate is an exclusive development located in Stelling Minnis. A collection of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes, set on generous plots providing large gardens. All are built to a traditional style with the very best of Pentland craftsmanship but with a contemporary twist to meet the needs of modern life. Rooms are large and the specification is high. The latest technology and thermally efficient materials are incorporated to ensure that the homes are bright, welcoming and comfortable and more economical to run, with reduced energy needs and CO2 emissions. A home at Radstone Gate suits modern living and considers the environment.
With their rolling countryside made up of traditional small farms and woodlands, the Kentish downs are officially recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. At their very heart lies the unspoilt village of Stelling Minnis. There was probably a settlement here in Roman times. The old English word 'stelling' means a cattle shelter, while a 'minnis' was an ancient common pasture land among the wooded upper slopes of the downland. Today, Stelling Minnis Common still flourishes. One of the last remaining manorial commons in Kent, the 124 acre site boasts a varied biodiversity that promotes the well-being of local residents and the wider community. The village provides not just a traditional village community, it offers a unique opportunity to enjoy country living with a modern twist at Radstone Gate.
At the heart of Stelling Minnis is a traditional village green, served by a post office and general store. There is the celebrated Rose and Crown with its traditional welcome, fine ales and food. There is the 800 year old Grade I listed St Mary's church, and the Stelling Minnis Windmill, still in full working condition and with a fascinating museum. Stelling Minnis Common beckons with the enchantment of the natural world, the Kent heritage coast is just a short drive away while London and Europe are both within easy reach.
The Kent Downs offer some of the most enchanting landscapes of southern Britain with dramatic views to discover and enjoy, and richly varied wildlife to spot. Pretty villages rich in architectural heritage dot open countryside, where farming continues as it has for generations. A wealth of ancient woodlands are separated by sparkling chalk streams and rivers, while ponds and marshes complete a varied landscape. From the White Cliffs of Dover to tranquil meadows and from Sites of Special Scientific Interest to farmers' markets there is something here for everyone. Local ramblers meet regularly for walks from Stelling Minnis Common. For woodland walks, nearby Lyminge Forest, one of the largest areas of woodland in Kent, offers walking and cycling routes designed for seeing the carpets of bluebells which flower in the woodland in spring. Another local site, Wye National Nature Reserve, is one of the best places in the country to enjoy the outdoors and experience spectacular wildlife and breathtaking views.
A home at Radstone Gate offers much more than simply a rural idyll it provides every facility for enjoying life to the full. There are sporting clubs, including some of the most challenging golf courses in the region. Canterbury and Ashford are both within easy reach for eating out, socialising, shopping, the arts and culture.
Just 20 minutes from Canterbury and Folkestone, and 30 minutes drive to Ashford with fast and frequent train links to London termini. The High Speed 1(HS1) rail takes just 36 minutes to London, making commuting simple, while continental Europe is also within reach: Paris can be reached in just 2 hours by Eurostar. Dover is half an hour away, while Gatwick and London City Airport are under 90 minutes away.
