A charming four bedroom detached house built in the 1970's offering extensive versatile accommodation which includes a newly fitted kitchen that sits adjacent to a walk-in larder, utility room and a downstairs cloakroom. This family home has seen many improvements over the last few years including a full renovation of the ground floor and a beautifully landscaped garden. It also benefits from off-road parking for several cars.
The main front door opens into a smart lobby with stairs to the first floor and a window to the front. This leads to an impressive open plan living room, which has been cleverly divided to create different areas for eating and relaxing. There are French doors connecting to the garden and several windows allowing light to flood through this space.
Engineered oak flooring has been laid throughout and flows through to the newly fitted kitchen. There is a mix of contemporary wall and floor units finished with oak worktops, two double ovens, and an induction hob, which have been perfectly integrated within this delightful bright and airy kitchen.
Double doors lead to the garden room, which is a small, double-glazed conservatory and is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful morning coffee.
The double garage beyond the kitchen has been incorporated within the house and lends itself to a convenient larder and utility room. This has the potential to create a large family kitchen/dining room (subject to planning).
A wide stairwell rises to the first floor where one will find a well-appointed family bathroom and four generously proportioned bedrooms, two of which benefit from windows either side and could easily be divided into more bedrooms if one wished. The loft is divided into two halves - one side is converted into a room with power sockets, lights and a Velux window, ideal for storage. The other side is a standard insulated loft area.
The delightful rear garden measures approx. 47ft wide and has been landscaped to incorporate seating areas and raised beds perfect for growing vegetables or herbs. The garden is the full width of the house and wraps around the side of the property with a handy shed for keeping garden tools and bicycles. The front of the property has a tarmac driveway and parking for several cars.
The village of Ospringe is located on the edge of the Kent Downs. The centre of the market town of Faversham is less than a mile away and the cathedral city of Canterbury approx. ten miles.

Mixed agriculture is the main activity of the area and there are still some hop gardens in use.
