The Sunflower, Radstone Gate, Thorn Lane, Stelling Minnis
The Sunflower is a substantial brand new detached residence, with over 3000 sq. ft of luxuriously appointed accommodation, set over three storeys and positioned within a generous and secluded plot in this highly exclusive, low density development near Canterbury.
The property has been sensitively designed to incorporate a handsome, part weatherboarded exterior, alongside an elegant and highly contemporary interior. This will include features such as underfloor heating, extensive double glazing, a bespoke luxury kitchen and beautifully appointed bathrooms, all finished with a choice of high quality materials.
The front door opens into an impressive reception hall, with a well appointed cloakroom and an oak staircase which rises to the first floor. To the front of the property, there is a study/playroom, whilst to the rear of the house there is a spectacular open plan living space which spans the entire width of this grand property.
This comprises a dual aspect sitting room with double glazed sliding doors to the garden, a vast dining area and then a beautifully appointed kitchen and family room with French doors to the rear garden. The kitchen includes a range of bespoke wall and floor units including a wine fridge and integral hot tap all set around quartz work surfaces, integrated NEFF appliances and a central island/breakfast bar. The kitchen is further complemented by a useful and well equipped utility room.
On the first floor, a splendid central galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom, fitted with a high specification contemporary suite and finished with stylish ceramic tiling.
The master suite is an incredible room with two dressing areas each fitted out with wardrobes and cabinets, a full en-suite bathroom and lovely views over the rear garden.
From the landing, another oak staircase ascends to a further two double bedrooms and an en-suite shower room on the second floor. This whole floor would serve particularly well as a self contained living space for a teenager or perhaps an au pair, if you did not necessarily need to use both of the bedrooms.
The Sunflower enjoys one of the largest plots within Radstone gate and is approached via electric gates and a resin bonded driveway, which provides ample parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached triple garage with electric doors.
The gardens wrap around the sides and the rear of the house and will be laid to lawn, with a high degree of privacy.

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.
