An attractive and immaculately presented detached house, built by an award winning builder, Forrest Homes in 2016 and situated within an exclusive private road in Etchinghill.
The property combines a traditionally styled tile-hung faÃ§ade with a beautifully appointed, stylish interior to create a wonderful family home, ideal for modern life.
A UPVC double glazed front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, with a well appointed cloakroom, lovely oak flooring and stairs to the first floor. A set of half-glazed oak double doors open into an elegant sitting room with a striking feature wall and a bay window with bespoke shutters.
To the rear of the house, there is an impressive open plan kitchen/dining room with an attractive ceramic tiled floor and double glazed French doors to the family room. The kitchen area has been fitted with an excellent range of high quality wall and floor units from Roma, set around striking quartz work surfaces, integrated NEFF appliances and a central island and breakfast bar.
The extensive living accommodation was further enhanced with the addition of a full-width rear extension in 2017. This is currently arranged as a large family room with bi-folding doors to the garden and a study with access to the integral garage. However, the study could easily be used as a ground floor bedroom and could be further improved by converting the rear section of the integral garage into an en-suite (subject to the necessary consents).
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to three, generously proportioned double bedrooms and a family bathroom. This has been fitted with a stylish and contemporary white suite and finished with polished porcelain wall and floor tiles. The main bedroom has bespoke built-in wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and fine views over countryside, whilst the remaining two are both good size doubles as well.
The house is set back from the road behind a pretty front garden and a block paved driveway which provides parking for at least three cars. This leads to an integral garage with an up and over door and power connected.
The rear garden measures approximately 29 ft x 42 ft and has been carefully landscaped to create an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Beautifully planted beds and borders surround an expanse of artificial lawn and a sandstone paved patio area with a raised pond and water feature. Steps lead to a shaded gazebo in one corner and a superb outdoor entertaining area, with a much larger oak framed gazebo with sandstone flooring, power points and an outdoor heater, making this an ideal outdoor kitchen or barbeque area.
The property is set within an exclusive private road in the sought after village of Etchinghill. The village is served by The Gate Keeper pub, which serves hot food, a regular bus service from Folkestone to Canterbury and is also home to the Etchinghill Golf Club. The village is surrounded by some beautiful woodland and countryside, making this an ideal location for anyone who enjoys walking and outdoor pursuits.
