Full property description
An imposing modern three bedroom townhouse with a prestigious waterfront position and magnificent views, situated within an exclusive gated development in the charming hamlet of Conyer. This is a perfect home or weekend retreat for anyone who is a sailing enthusiast and enjoys outdoor pursuits as, in addition to the creek, there is an abundance of beautiful walks and nature on your doorstep.
The property was built in 2002 by the award winning Clague Architects and combines traditional Kentish weatherboarding, oak flooring, vaulted ceilings, and traditional panelling, with a highly versatile layout. The end result is a striking sense of space and light and an undeniable connection between the house and its incredible setting.
A solid wood front door opens into an entrance hall with natural slate flooring and a convenient utility cupboard. At the end of the hallway, there is a delightful bright room with direct access to the garden. This room works perfectly as a peaceful study or an additional bedroom. The bedroom also benefits from having its own adjacent shower room with WC.
On the first floor, a bright and airy kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of modern wall and floor units, set around attractive tiles and whitewashed worktops. The Stoves range cooker fits superbly within the new kitchen and creates a stunning feature in this room, whilst a breakfast bar sits between the cooking and dining area, connecting the two spaces together.
At the back of the living area, an impressive sitting room with its huge windows and French doors open on to a full-width balcony with panoramic views of the countryside and the Marina. The sitting room is a splendid room, with a wood burning stove which brings warmth and ambience, whilst the balcony is west facing and enjoys the most glorious sunsets.
On the top floor, a galleried landing leads to the main bedroom, which has an impressive, vaulted ceiling. There is also a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite. The bedroom feels tranquil and relaxing and takes in more wonderful views of the wildlife outside.
Next to the main bedroom, there is a well-appointed bathroom with a heated towel rail, and beautifully bespoke vanity units. To the front of the property, there is another comfortable double bedroom, complete with a built in wardrobe.
The property has an integral garage. There is a shared boat shed, a bin store and a slip way within the gated community area.
The rear garden measures approximately 30 ft and has a low maintenance patio and raised beds set out with sleepers.
To preserve the integrity and character of the development all properties have the balance of a 999-year-lease to the residents' own management company, who hold the freehold on behalf of all residents, who are equal shareholders. The variable annual maintenance charge is currently approx. £1700. This sum includes external painting and the maintenance of the electric gates.
The property is served by mains drainage and electric heaters as there is no mains gas supply to the village of Conyer.
Conyer is a picturesque Creekside hamlet five miles from the medieval market town of Faversham. Situated on the Swale, it offers two marinas (both with mooring options and one with a cruising club and clubhouse facilities) and the welcoming Creekside Ship Inn, a superbly renovated village pub and eatery serving classic traditional fare.
Surrounded by farmland and orchards, Conyer is popular with ramblers following the historic Saxon Shore Way, sailors, photographers and bird watchers. There is a bus service to nearby Teynham with its handy convenience stores, post office, primary school and railway station (with a service to London Victoria). Rail travellers are also well served by mainline stations at Faversham (for Kent's coastal resorts) and Sittingbourne (regular commuter services to London's Victoria and a fast service to St. Pancras International).
Faversham has a wide choice of supermarkets, restaurants, individual shops and leisure facilities. There are three markets a week in the cobbled town square beside the ancient Guildhall. Community attractions include the famous annual Hop Festival (the town holds the oldest brewery in the country) and a magnificent weekend-long classic car show. On the outskirts of the town, Brogdale 'The Home of the National Fruit Collection' stages regular events celebrating Kent as the fruit producing Garden of England.
Both Faversham and Sittingbourne boast high-achieving grammar schools. The cathedral city of Canterbury; Margate, home of its Turner Gallery; and trendy Whitstable, renowned for its oysters and interesting mix of shops, are short journeys away. Thanks to Eurostar, the 'Shuttle' and cross-Channel ferries, the Continent is virtually on your doorstep.
