Full property description
A substantial and sympathetically styled contemporary home, built to an exceptional standard by Millwood Designer Homes and set within a generous gated plot of 0.34 acres in the highly exclusive Polo Field development in between Canterbury and Littlebourne.
The property was constructed in 2019 and offers extensive and well appointed accommodation, set within a carefully styled exterior. This incorporates a host of traditional features, such as heritage style brickwork, weatherboarding and a tile hung façade to create the look and feel of a much older property, with all the comfort and luxury of a modern family home.
The property is entered via a UPVC double glazed front door, which opens into a welcoming entrance hall. This has a coats cupboard, a well-appointed cloakroom and an elegant staircase which rises to the first floor. A set of double doors lead from the entrance hall into a magnificent dual aspect drawing room, with a homely exposed brick fireplace with a multi-fuel stove and double glazed French doors which open onto the rear garden.
There are two further reception rooms, a sitting room with a deep bay window to the front of the house and a study which enjoys pleasant views over the rear gardens. Also to the rear of the house, there is a huge, open plan kitchen/dining room with French doors and bi-folding doors which connect this impressive room with the rear garden and a full width patio area, ideal for outdoor entertaining.
The kitchen has been fitted with a superb array of contemporary high quality wall and floor units, set around corian work surfaces, a sink with an instant hot water tap and a range of integrated appliances from Siemens. These include two fridge/freezers, an oven, a combination oven, a dish washer and an induction hob with an inset extractor. Finally, the extensive ground floor accommodation is completed by a useful utility room, which also enjoys access to the driveway and front garden.
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 splendid double room, with a stylish en-suite bathroom with a double ended bath, a separate shower enclosure and attractive ceramic wall and floor tiling. Furthermore, the main bedroom is complemented by a spacious dressing room (which was formerly the fifth bedroom) with two sets of built-in double wardrobes.
The property sits within a particularly generous plot of 0.34 acres and is approached via an electric five bar gate. This opens onto a large block paved driveway, which provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage with an electric double door. The front garden is laid to lawn and enclosed by post and rail fencing and hedging, with attractive plum shale flowerbeds and borders. The rear garden is south facing and is mainly laid to lawn, with pretty flowerbeds, raised vegetable beds, young hedging and trees and a patio area which extends across the rear of the house. From here, a gravelled pathway meanders to another paved patio area at the bottom of the garden, ideal for enjoying the evening sun.
The property enjoys an enviable position within Millwood Designer Homes exclusive Polo Fields development. This prestigious development contains just 17 detached houses, all sympathetically styled and set within generous plots, adjacent to Polo Farm Sports Club. Consequently, the property enjoys the convenience of being within three miles of the centre of Canterbury, but also within easy reach of the villages of Littlebourne, Bekesbourne, Fordwich and Wingham and some outstanding countryside.
The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it, with a bustling city centre which offers a wide array of High Street brands, independent retailers, fine pubs, restaurants and eateries.
The city lies on the River Stour and boasts three universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities.
A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city's economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King's School.
Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city's famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.
The city is served by a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high speed rail link connects with Londons St Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour, making this an ideal destination for commuters. However, the city is surrounded by some beautiful countryside, with many footpaths and bridleways, also ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits.
