Full property description

A striking modern detached residence, individually designed and built to a high standard. The Oaks is set within approx. two and three-quarter acres of magnificent and secluded grounds which include an outstanding array of equestrian facilities, including an all-weather arena, stables, outbuildings, and several paddocks. Situated in the charming village of Ospringe, just outside the market town of Faversham, this property offers a traditional feel, with stunning features such as exposed beams, and a splendid oak staircase that leads to four beautiful bedrooms.

A solid wood front door opens into a delightful entrance hall which has a cloakroom and an area for coats and wellies. The hallway offers access to both the sitting room and the open plan kitchen/breakfast room. To the left of the entrance hall, there is an elegant triple aspect sitting room which has an exposed brick fireplace that encompasses a modern gas stove.

To the right there is a kitchen/breakfast room with a magnificent granite-topped island. The kitchen area has been fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor units, set around rich granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, and a ceramic tiled floor. This room flows beautifully onto a dining room which incorporates a casual seating area next to the wood burning stove and French doors which open onto the east side of the garden.

On the first floor, a central landing leads to four generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom is a superb dual aspect double room with stunning views of the garden and countryside beyond.

OUTSIDE:

The Oaks sits within a generous plot of approx. two and three-quarter acres and the immaculate grounds are a credit to the current owner.

A tree lined driveway runs around the house and leads you to the main front door, a car port and plenty of space for parking. Above the car port there is a converted space which would make a perfect home office and below there is a convenient storage shed.

The gardens surrounding the house are beautifully kept with mature trees and attractive shrubs. There is a newly installed wooden summer house which sits perfectly, making the most of the southerly sunshine. There is a smaller garden that can be seen directly from the kitchen and offers a wonderful area for the children to play.

There is another driveway from Well Lane that would give you direct access to the equestrian facilities which include: ample parking for large vehicles, 42m x 22m Softrack all-weather arena, four paddocks, some with field shelters, three 14ft x 14ft stables, a tack room and feed room.
An additional stable is larger than the other three stables and has a staircase to the roof space which runs across the entire stable block. It has great head height and would provide superb additional storage.

AGENT'S NOTE: There is a restrictive covenant which relates to the stables. Contact Foundation for more information about this.

SITUATION:

The Oaks enjoys an exceptional rural setting, within walking distance of the local pub, The Alma, and a further stroll into Faversham town centre. The property is surrounded by paddocks and orchards and enjoys fine views over the surrounding countryside.

The village of Ospringe is located on the edge of the Kent Downs. The centre of the market town of Faversham is about two miles away and the cathedral city of Canterbury approx. twelve miles. The village has a well regarded Church of England primary school and the local church is St. Peter and St. Paul.

The parish encompasses nine hamlets, the major one being Painters Forstal, which is home to Lorenden Preparatory School, whilst other local primary schools include the outstanding Sheldwich Primary School. The parish is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has several conservation areas as well as roadside nature conservancy areas within its boundary. Mixed agriculture is the main activity of the area and there are still some hop gardens in use.

The charming market town of 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 Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham has a mainline railway station with a regular service to London Victoria, Cannon Street and Charing Cross and a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras. The nearby M2 motorway gives excellent and fast access to London which is approx. 48 miles, the Cathedral City of Canterbury (approx. 9 miles away) and the Kent coast.
