Full property description
A striking and contemporary single storey detached residence, discretely positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, enjoying spectacular views over countryside to the rear, in the highly sought-after village of Fordwich. Meadows was originally a detached bungalow, built in 1981, however the property has been completely transformed by its current owners, into a modern and stylish property with a stunning interior.
These alterations include: adding extensive glazing, Juliette balconies and ÂK-RendÂ rendering, to create a far more contemporary exterior. Internally, the owners have created a predominantly open plan layout, added a high specification kitchen and bathrooms, bespoke shutters, new electrics and a new central heating system including designer radiators, amongst many other improvements. The end result is an exceptionally well-presented property, finished to a high standard, in an incredibly private and secluded setting.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with a well-appointed cloakroom. The entrance hall opens into a stunning triple aspect sitting room, with a beautiful limestone fireplace and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden.
An archway opens into an impressive kitchen/breakfast room which has been fitted with and excellent range of wall and floor units, set around granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and Amtico flooring. To the left of the entrance hall, an inner hallway leads to three, generously proportioned bedrooms and a luxuriously appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a contemporary white suite, including a double ended bath, a rainfall shower enclosure, a concealed mirrored cabinet, inset speakers and a wet room natural stone floor.
The main bedroom is a splendid double room, with extensive fitted wardrobes, an equally well-appointed en-suite wet room and double glazed French doors which open onto a balcony which affords magnificent views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside. The second bedroom is also a generous double room, with a Juliette balcony to the front of the house.
The property is approached via a tarmac driveway, flanked by a decorative low level wall and tall hedged either side. The driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to an integral garage, with an electric door, power, water, loft storage and access to additional storage beneath the main property. The front garden has been carefully landscaped, with attractive hedging and sweeping stone steps which lead to the front door.
The rear garden measures approximately 90 ft x 35 ft and is mainly laid to lawn, with beautifully planted beds and borders, filled with a colourful variety of flowers and shrubs. There are two stone paved patio areas (one with an electric awning) and a superb timber outbuilding, currently used for storage, but offering excellent potential for a variety of other uses. The garden enjoys a particularly high degree of privacy.
The property is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, in the sought-after village of Fordwich and just a short distance from Canterbury Golf Club. The property is surrounded by fields and woodland, with an abundance of wildlife and nearby amenities for fishing, walking and pleasure boats along the River Stour.
Fordwich itself has many fine period buildings, two well-known pubs (one of which holds a Michelin star) and a reputation for being the smallest 'town' in England, the village is a gem. Canterbury lies about 2.5 miles to the north west, with its excellent shopping centre, cultural interests, general amenities and a good range of schools in both the public and private sectors, including King's, St Edmund's, Kent College and Simon Langton boys and girls grammar schools. There are also two universities and various colleges of further education.
Sporting and recreational opportunities in the area include the famous Links Golf Courses at Royal St. George's and Prince's, Sandwich, sailing on the coast and at the nearby Westbere Lakes, county cricket at Canterbury and the Polo Farm Sports Complex on the Littlebourne Road, just outside of Canterbury.
The property is exceedingly well placed for access to Sturry station, which offers a one-stop service to Canterbury West with its High Speed Rail service to London (St Pancras 56 mins). The property also has road access to Canterbury and the A2 dual carriageway, which in turn links to Faversham (to the north) and Dover (to the south) with its cross-channel services.
Nearby Sturry has many clubs and organisations including the WomenÂs Institute, The League of Friends, fitness and dancing classes. There is a Church of England primary school and the Independent Junior Kings boarding school. It has doctor and dental surgeries, a post office, chemist, Co-Op store, church, some lovely pubs nearby and a great restaurant.
The nearby Cathedral City of Canterbury is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a thriving city centre offering a wide array of High Street brands alongside a diverse mix of independent retailers, cafes and international restaurants.
Canterbury has an excellent choice of educational amenities, ranging from Grammar schools to well regarded private schools and three universities.
