A substantial family home occupying a generous plot with wrap around gardens, garage and driveway in one of South Canterbury's most desirable roads. This attractive, detached residence offers almost 1700 square ft of spacious accommodation including a contemporary kitchen/diner, sitting room, separate study and four double bedrooms. The area is well known for its highly regarded schools, with both Langton Grammar Schools and St. Anselm's Catholic School within walking distance. The property is ideally situated for medical professionals as Kent & Canterbury Hospital is a stone's throw away.

The property is located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac, enjoying a large corner plot. The façade is an attractive mix of brickwork and hung tiles and there is pretty front garden with hedges and shrubs. The front door opens into a large entrance hallway, with parquet flooring giving it a feel of grandeur. The downstairs layout is versatile and well-thought out, perfect for families. There is a contemporary kitchen/diner to the rear, with a nice outlook onto the garden. Double, glass panelled doors separate the sitting room from the kitchen/dining space so these can either be opened up for a more social, open-plan layout or closed. A door then opens into a further reception room, the perfect home/office or snug, with a door leading out to the garden. The kitchen is contemporary, and has a range of matching wall and base units in a sleek, grey gloss and there is a breakfast bar. Appliances include a range cooker which will be included within the sale, an integrated dishwasher and there is space for an American-style fridge/freezer. The dining and lounge areas have attractive parquet flooring, and the lounge features a fireplace with a gas fire, and a large bay window to the front letting in plenty of natural light. Also on the ground floor, you will find a WC.

Stairs from the entrance hall rise to the first floor, where you will find four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a WC. It is rare to find a property which such generous bedrooms, which makes it ideal for families with teenagers. Three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom is decorated with neutral wall tiles and a grey vinyl flooring. It features a bath and separate shower cubicle as well as a wash basin and heated towel rail. There is a separate WC.


The property benefits from a large, wrap-around garden which is laid to lawn. It's the perfect garden for kids to play in, with plenty of space for running around and playing games. There is a choice of patio areas, for summer lounging and alfresco dining. Due to the generous plot, there would be potential to extend the property, either to the rear or to the side, subject to the necessary planning permissions which the current owners did look into at one point.

There is side access round to the front of the property, which also gives access to the garage which has an electric roller door. The garage has power to it and this is where the current owners keep their washing machine. There is a driveway in front of the garden.
