Full property description

A generously extended 1970s built five bedroom detached residence, set within 0.22 acres of beautifully established gardens, in the lovely village of Stelling Minnis. Timbercombe has seen numerous improvements in recent years and now offers over 2300 sq. ft of extremely spacious and versatile accommodation. However, there is still potential to enhance the property, with the opportunity to convert the loft or garage (subject to planning consent) and create additional accommodation, if required.

The red brick and black weatherboard faade present a striking first impression of this handsome property, the oak front door opens into an entrance lobby which is perfect for housing coats and shoes. This leads one to a magnificent dual aspect drawing room which was part of the extension added in 2018. From here there is access to both the dining room and sitting room. The sitting room has a grand fireplace with an ornate mantle, which encompasses a wood burning stove, there is access to the conservatory and main hallway which sits central and leads to all three reception rooms, the kitchen, cloakroom, and stairs to the first floor.

The kitchen breakfast room is a generous size and has been fitted with an extensive range of traditional style floor and wall units. Several appliances have been integrated as well as space for free standing fridge freezer. There are two doors leading to the garden as well as entrance to the double-glazed conservatory which has heating, blinds and ceiling fan allowing this room to be enjoyed all year round.

To the first floor one will find a split-level landing that leads to five bedrooms, three of which are dual aspect doubles. The two smaller bedrooms currently serve as home offices, these are both well-proportioned single bedrooms. The main bedroom is a spectacular double and has an elegant ensuite bathroom and dressing area. The well-appointed family bathroom has a separate shower a simple three-piece suite, finished with attractive tiles.

The front has PIR lighting covering most areas, and to the left, a gate to the rear garden. To the right there is another area for parking which leads through to the garden through double gates this would be an ideal home for a campervan or caravan. The garden has been beautifully manicured and is a complete credit to the current owners who have perfectly placed shrubs and flowers making the most of every corner. The established trees offer a delicate amount of shade to the seating areas dotted around the garden, in the far-right hand corner there is a little secret garden with a timber framed gazebo nestled amongst lush greenery. On the left a large wooden shed perfect for keeping garden tools which is great storage in addition to the double garage that benefits from plumbing and makes a wonderful utility area.

The Kent Downs offer some of the most enchanting landscapes of southern Britain with dramatic views to discover and enjoy, and richly varied wildlife to spot.
