The property offers some wonderful original features such as parquet flooring, panelled doors and an internal crittall window alongside a contemporary open plan layout and modern kitchen.
An inner lobby perfect for housing coats and shoes opens into a grand entrance hallway which has striking original parquet flooring and stairs to the first floor.
To the right of the hallway there is a charming triple aspect sitting room with open fireplace and French doors opening onto a garden room. Adjacent to the sitting room one will find a delightful snug with an original internal crittall window which overlooks the dining area.
To the left side of the property, there is a luxuriously appointed kitchen/diner with retractable full height double-glazed doors which open onto the patio incorporating the garden with the inside space and making the most if the idyllic views of the countryside. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of beautifully handcrafted units and finished with a splendid granite worktop and a breakfast bar, a walk-in pantry sits central to the kitchen and provides ample space for additional groceries. Underfloor heating runs through this wonderfully sociable space with areas for relaxing and dining.
There is a convenient utility room/WC and separate boot room off the kitchen allowing outside access to the side of the property. To the rear there is a double bedroom with ensuite, this could be perfect for a relative to live independently as this has a separate entrance.
On the first floor there is a galleried landing with a bespoke handcrafted study area which takes full advantage of the countryside views beyond. Whilst off the landing original panelled doors lead to three generously proportioned bedrooms, one of which is double aspect and one with an ensuite shower room. The main bathroom is fitted using luxurious Italian marble which encompasses the elegant suite.
Mariners occupies almost half an acre of beautiful gardens and to the front of the property there is an integral garage and extensive driveway large enough for several cars.
At the rear of the property a patio area which runs level with the house offers several areas for alfresco dining, this leads to a wooden cabin with electricity which could easily be converted to a home office.
Beyond the patio there is a heated pool measuring 10m x 4m, with a curved slide and sunken trampoline offering endless fun for the children. To the rear of the garden an established acer tree surrounded by raised beds leads to a hidden orchard. This area is tucked away, yet securely enclosed and offers several fruit trees and vegetable patches alongside some swings and a summerhouse.
Mariners enjoys an idyllic situation, positioned on a quiet road surrounded by open countryside, yet within easy reach of Sandwichs bustling town centre, mainline station, quayside, and schools. What makes Mariners position even more special, is that the Royal St Georges Golf Club and Sandwich Bay are both within walking distance.
