Property description

This fantastic house was originally built in the 1970s and occupies a wonderfully secluded plot on a sought after residential road just to the south of Shorne Village. During their ownership the current owners have carried out a sympathetic and extensive renovation of the house, with double extensions to the side and rear, creating a spacious and beautifully presented family home, which benefits from neutral décor and stylish fittings throughout. The accommodation extends to just under 3000 square feet, including the integral double garage (16’10 x 16’7) and boasts fabulous views to the Thames Estuary, especially from the upper level of the house.

On entering the house there is a striking entrance hall with a handmade American Ash staircase leading to the upper floor and set against a floor to ceiling double height window which floods the house with light. The ground floor accommodation includes a 23’7 ft. Reception room with a feature fireplace and doors out to the garden, a dining room, stylish kitchen with matching eye and base level units with attractive composite work surfaces, integrated appliances and an American style fridge freezer (which will remain as part of the sale), utility room and downstairs shower room and WC. The kitchen is open to a bright garden room that features under floor heating, a vaulted glass ceiling and door to the terrace, a room ideal for entertaining. Also on the ground floor is a study / fifth bedroom, flexible for a buyer’s needs.

On the upper floor there are two master suites at either end of the landing, one with an en-suite shower room and dressing area and the other with floor to ceiling windows with views to the Thames Estuary, an en-suite bathroom with separate walk in shower and extensive built in cupboards. Both en-suites benefit from under floor heating. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor and a modern bathroom. The boarded loft space is accessed from the landing via a pull down ladder, providing excellent storage and development potential (subject to the necessary planning consents and a buyer’s own investigations).

Situation
The house is located on the highly sought after Pear Tree Lane in Shorne, a picturesque village that has amenities including a church, village hall, school, medical practice, grocery store and hairdressers, public houses. Shorne Woods Country Park is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beautiful, designated a site of Special Scientific Interest for its wildlife value. Transport links include mainline stations at Sole Street and Higham on the Victoria and Cannon Street line respectively. Ebbsfleet International Rail Station is 7.3 miles away, providing access to London and Eurostar services. The house is located 1.2 miles from the A2 which provides access to the M25 and M2 motorways affording links to Gatwick and Heathrow, London, Bluewater and the South Coast.

Outside
The house is approached via a gated driveway, which provides parking for several cars and access to the double garage (16’10 x 16’7), which can also be accessed from the utility room. Both the front and rear gardens have been cleverly landscaped, and benefit from remote controlled external lighting. Garden gates separate the front of the house from the rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders and trees, an attractive Victorian designed greenhouse which has both electricity and water and a terraced seating area with a wood fired pizza oven. In addition to the expanses of lawn, the garden also has an allotment area and a meadow which leads to a wooded area.
