TENURE: To be advised
This idyllic, countryside set semi-detached home, located close to Blean Woods, has been significantly extended and wonderfully renovated. Plenty of thought and attention to detail has been taken to ensure that the many improvements and features are complementary to the original features and charm of the building.
Natural oak features are prominent throughout this beautiful home which also has a modern contemporary feel. The traditional brick and peg tile exterior have been superbly and fittingly used to sympathise with the original character of the property.
Enter via the large entrance porch, leading to, a solid wooden floored entrance hall with a well appointed cloakroom/w.c. And stairs to the first floor. To the front there is a good sized reception/ family room with a solid oak floor and a fireplace with a wood burning stove.
The refitted cottage style kitchen has an excellent range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around a selection of integrated appliances and solid wood work surfaces with two inset sinks and a mixer tap with instant boiling water, Rayburn stove and oak flooring.
From the kitchen you enter the open plan dining room featuring exposed oak beams, a vaulted ceiling and French doors which open onto the garden. The kitchen also opens into an impressive, dual aspect sitting room, with an exposed oak beam, engineered oak flooring and stunning views over the garden and the farmland beyond.
To the first floor a good sized landing leads to three generously proportioned double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom which features views across the garden and farmland.. The master bedroom is a particularly good size double room with a feature cast iron fireplace.
From the first floor landing, a further staircase leading to the well designed, 4th spacious bedroom with four velux windows letting in plenty of light. There is plenty of storage room into the eves which could easily be converted into an en-suite.
The property benefits from generous and mature plot which measuring approximately 168 ft in length and 77 ft at its widest point. To the front there is a gravelled drive for several cars, attractive garden with a selection of mature trees, shrubs and flowers. The recently built detached garage is weather boarded with pitched, peg tile roof, double doors, power, lighting and a staircase which rises to a useful loft room. This has been partly converted and would make an excellent office, gym or even a guest bedroom when complete.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and trees and outstanding views over open fields and woodland to the rear. Ideal for all family, there is a large timber Wendy house and chicken run at the end of the garden and an extensive patio area and a brick built outbuilding.
