Full property description
A magnificent brand new barn-style residence, set within 0.69 acres of park-like grounds surrounded by rolling farmland and countryside, yet within easy reach of the bustling cathedral city of Canterbury. St Quentin has been carefully constructed to an exceptional standard and sympathetically designed to create a masterpiece of light and space, with over 4500 sq. ft of highly adaptable accommodation.
Features of note include: bespoke hardwood idigbo windows with hand forged ironmongery, oak doors, brushed stainless steel screwless switches and sockets, a high specification kitchen with oak and quartz worktops, luxury bathrooms and underfloor heating to the ground floor.
The property is entered via a large entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor. From here, a sliding barn-style door opens into a spectacular vaulted atrium with a wall of glazing, overlooked by a mezzanine galleried landing on the first floor.
The principal reception room is a lovely dual aspect sitting room, in addition to a study with an exposed brick feature wall and an office. To the front of the house, there is a stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family room, with an exposed brick feature wall, a triple aspect and French doors which open directly onto a large patio area. The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around a mix of oak and quartz work surfaces, a twin Belfast sink and a range of appliances.
Completing the extensive ground floor accommodation is a utility room, a cloakroom/WC and a large double bedroom with a contemporary en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor, a vast galleried landing leads to four generously proportioned bedrooms (two of which have en-suites) and a well-appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom is a simply magnificent room, with a vaulted ceiling, a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with a stylish suite including a free-standing bath. French doors set within an entire wall of glazing open onto a large balcony which affords spectacular views over open farmland and fields.
St Quentin is set within 0.69 acres of glorious park-like grounds, entered via a set of electronic double gates with an intercom system. These open onto a large, gravelled driveway which provides ample parking for numerous cars and leads to a detached triple garage. This has two open port cart bays, one enclosed bay and an external staircase which leads to a 28 ft room above the garage, ideal for use as an office or games room.
The grounds are mainly laid to lawn, with a variety of both newly planted and well-established flowers, shrubs and trees. There are two Indian sandstone patio areas, ideal for outdoor entertaining and a variety of outbuildings, including two storage sheds and a greenhouse. The garden backs directly onto open farmland and enjoys an exceptional degree of privacy.
AGENT'S NOTE: The property is served by private drainage and LPG fired central heating, by way of underfloor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor.
