Full property description

A spectacular detached family house, with attractive and traditionally styled dark weatherboarded elevations, with a generous and secluded plot and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside with far reaching views over an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Orchard View is set within just under two acres of grounds, with excellent equestrian facilities, including several paddocks, a modern stable block from Chart Stables and a Mark Scott arena. The property itself has been generously extended and sensitively renovated throughout, to a particularly high standard and now offers over 2500 sq. ft of versatile and well-appointed accommodation, including a self-contained integral ground floor annexe (which could potentially help reduce the stamp duty liability for the property).

The property is entered via a wood effect UPVC double glazed front door, which opens into an impressive double height entrance hall, with a cloakroom, solid oak flooring and stairs to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a splendid triple aspect sitting room, with double glazed French doors to the garden, exposed reclaimed beams and a fireplace with a multi-fuel stove.

To the left of the entrance hall, there is dining room with solid oak flooring and a fireplace with an inset electric fire. Beyond the dining room, an inner hallway leads to a spacious study, a boot room and a spectacular kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with an excellent range of solid wood wall, floor and display units, set around striking cosmic black granite work surfaces, integrated stainless steel NEFF appliances and a lovely old multi-fuel Rayburn. The range of kitchen units and beautiful granite work surfaces continue into a useful utility room.

Completing the extensive ground floor accommodation, there is a large games room with a kitchenette, an adjacent wheelchair-friendly wet room and a large reception room (currently used as another study). These three rooms enjoy their own access and a private garden and could easily serve as a self-contained integral annexe, if required.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to four generously proportioned double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom is a double room, with a fully fitted walk-in wardrobe and a luxury en-suite with a slipper bath and a walk-in shower enclosure. The main bedroom also enjoys magnificent views over open countryside from a private balcony. The second bedroom also has a fully fitted walk-in wardrobe and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom with a modern white suite and travertine tiling.

OUTSIDE:

Orchard View is set within a highly secluded plot of just under two acres and is approached via a set of twin electric gates with a video entry system. These open onto a long, gravelled driveway which grandly sweeps past the paddocks and arrives at the main house. Adjacent to the main house, there is a secondary gated entrance, which opens onto ample parking and a five bar gate which leads to a detached timber garage. The driveway also provides vehicular access to the stable yard and is reinforced, allowing for heavy vehicles such as horse lorries. The stables were erected in 2013 by Chart Stables and offer two 12 ft x 12 ft stables with a 24 ft x 10 ft tack room and hay store. Adjacent to the stables, there is a superb 40m x 20m Mark Scott arena.

The main garden has been beautifully landscaped and is mainly laid to lawn, with mature flower and shrub borders and a lovely sandstone patio area which leads to pergola and hot tub area (hot tub available by separate negotiation). The remainder of the land is arranged as four paddocks, each with secure post and rail fencing and a mains water supply.

SITUATION:

Orchard View is situated on a quiet country lane in the delightful village of Eastling. It enjoys wonderful views over fields to the rear of the property and is a short stroll from the village centre.

The small village of Eastling lies just over four miles to the southwest of Faversham and is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the slopes of the North Downs. The villages Conservation Area boasts some excellent buildings and gardens, including Eastling Manor House. The village has its own church, St. Marys, a primary school, a village hall and the local pub, The Carpenters Arms, which serves a fine selection of beers, ales and hot food, whilst a public bus service links the village to the market town of Faversham.

Faversham nestles between the rural beauty of the rolling downs and the sweeping flatlands of the North Kent marshes. Faversham has a wide range of high street shops and independent retailers which adorn its attractive high street and its bustling market square.

The town also offers excellent leisure facilities with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a large park and recreation ground, a museum and numerous pubs and restaurants.

It has a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which is the renowned Queen Elizabeths Grammar School.

The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London which is approximately 48 miles, the Cathedral City of Canterbury (approx. 9 miles away) and the Kent coast.
