Highly Sought-After Village Location
EPC RATING: D
Full property description
An attractive detached chalet bungalow, with spacious and highly versatile accommodation, set within beautiful gardens which include a detached double garage and gated parking. The property is situated in the highly sought-after village of Selling, with its primary school, village pub and mainline station, and enjoys magnificent views over rolling countryside.
A UPVC double glazed front door opens into a central entrance hall, with a beautifully appointed shower room and stairs to the first floor. There are two well proportioned rooms either side of the entrance hall, currently used as a family room/study and a dining room, however these could both easily serve as bedrooms.
To the rear of the house, there is a stunning open plan living space with spectacular views over the garden and the countryside beyond. At one end of this impressive room is a fireplace with a wood burning stove and double glazed French doors to the garden. Whitened Oak' Forbo flooring extends from the sitting area into an attractive kitchen/breakfast area, fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor units, set around oak and composite work surfaces, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.
On the first floor, a large galleried landing (currently used as a dressing area) leads to two double bedrooms and a well-appointed shower room. Each bedroom has exposed wood flooring and ample eaves storage, whilst the main bedroom has bespoke built-in wardrobes.
Beeches is set back from the road behind an attractive front garden, which is laid to lawn and enclosed by a low level brick wall. A long driveway leads to a timber five bar gate which opens onto an additional parking area, with extensive parking and a detached double garage. This has one up and over door and one electric door and previously had planning consent to convert this into a one bedroom annexe (however this consent has now lapsed).
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and has been beautifully planted with a variety of flowers and shrubs, with a paved patio area adjacent to the house. The gardens back directly onto magnificent rolling countryside, which not only affords a tremendous a degree of privacy, but also creates a spectacular backdrop to this very special home.
Beeches is situated on a quiet country lane, backing onto beautiful farmland and rolling countryside, on the edge of the sought after village of Selling, which lies close to the market town of Faversham, on the edge of the Kent Downs.
The village has a mainline train station, a beautiful 14th century Church, a cricket club, two village pubs, The White Lion and The Rose & Crown and a well regarded Church of England primary school which has an outstanding reputation.
