This property is a lovely village property in the charming hamlet of Stourmouth near Ash, with plenty of character, fexible living accommodation and an excellent separate annex providing both residential and office facilities. It backs onto by farmland as far as the eye can see with a driveway and off road parking for perhaps 20 or more cars, all included in 0.956 of an acre of land. Originally built in 1827 as part of a working farm it still retains some period features such as beams, pine doors and fireplaces but no expense has been spared by the owners in the upgrading of this excellent family home. This aspect is immediately apparent as you walk through patio doors into the fascinating kitchen/breakfast area with its angled breakfast bar, attractive units, high quality range cooker with induction hob, American fridge freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler. There is even a place for the dogs that is open into the attractive adjacent dining area so this whole space is where the family are likely to spend much of their time. There is a very useful playroom/study and shower room as well as a warm and cosy lounge, a charming fireplace and a large bay window with direct access to the conservatory and views across the garden and the surrounding countryside. You will find the modern family bathroom and four bedrooms including the master with fabulous rural views on the first floor leading from the original galleried landing and staircase with its window seat and you can access the large vaulted ceiling room with its en suite cloakroom on the second floor directly from the staircase. Outside there is truly something for everyone. The large grass area is just the place for a game of football, a run around with the dogs or could even be fenced in as a small paddock for a pony. You can sit on the patio and enjoy a barbecue while looking at the countryside and if that is not enough, you can always relax in the Jacuzzi sited on the raised decked terrace. On the other side of the driveway and fencing is a large workshop, double garage, carport and storage sheds as well as the annex. This includes a stunning games room with a built in bar, pool table, utility room and toilet together with a fitted office.What the Owner says:
"We really love the house and have spent a great deal of time, money and effort improving the property since we moved here as we were expecting to live here for many years to come but work commitments mean we have to make a move. We have completely redesigned the kitchen and put in high quality units and appliances and have undertaken a great deal of remedial work including replumbing and rewiring, installed new bathrooms and created the residental apartment in the annex.
We bought the house because the area really appealed to us and the views are outstanding. It is also a quiet and peaceful place and yet we are not too far from the village shop at Preston or the Minster Service Station with its very useful co-op. There are delightful places to go for walks and you can enjoy a drink or a pleasant meal at the Rising Sun pub which is probably less than a minute's walk so you don't have to drive. At the same time the historic city of Canterbury with its high street stores, individual shops, bars and restaurants is only about 10 miles, the medieval Cinque port town of Sandwich is even less and the Thanet Way is easily accessible for London, the Thanet towns and Minster station for the high speed rail."Room sizes:Entrance HallLounge: 18'4 x 12'5 into bay (5.59m x 3.79m)Conservatory: 15'11 x 5'5 (4.85m x 1.65m)Dining Area: 12'5 x 11'5 (3.79m x 3.48m)Kitchen/Breakfast Area: 24'8 x 15'1 (7.52m x 4.60m)Playroom/Study: 11'5 x 8'10 (3.48m x 2.69m)Shower RoomLandingBedroom 1: 16'1 x 12'3 into bay (4.91m x 3.74m)Bedroom 2: 18'4 x 15'11 (5.59m x 4.85m)Bedroom 3: 11'5 x 10'9 (3.48m x 3.28m)Bedroom 4: 11'5 x 6'10 (3.48m x 2.08m)Bathroom: 8'6 x 5'9 (2.59m x 1.75m)Loft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)ToiletKitchen/Lounge/Diner: 24'5 x 13'10 (7.45m x 4.22m)Bedroom 1: 15'2 x 10'7 (4.63m x 3.23m)Utility Room: 9'4 x 5'11 (2.85m x 1.80m)Shower RoomHallwayUtility RoomGames Room: 20'9 x 18'8 (6.33m x 5.69m)ToiletStorage: 18'8 x 7'2 (5.69m x 2.19m)Double Garage: 18'0 x 12'10 (5.49m x 3.91m)WorkshopLandingLandingLoft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)LandingLoft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)Kitchen: 9'4 x 5'11 (2.85m x 1.80m)LandingLoft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)Kitchen: 9'4 x 5'11 (2.85m x 1.80m)LandingLoft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)Kitchen: 9'4 x 5'11 (2.85m x 1.80m)Shower RoomShower RoomShower RoomBedroom 2: 16'2 x 14'9 (4.93m x 4.50m)HallwayHallwayHallwayOffice/Mezzanine: 23'5 x 14'9 (7.14m x 4.50m)Games Room: 20'9 x 18'8 (6.33m x 5.69m)Games Room: 20'9 x 18'8 (6.33m x 5.69m)Games Room: 20'9 x 18'8 (6.33m x 5.69m)ToiletToiletToiletStore Room: 7'3 x 6'0 (2.21m x 1.83m)Storage: 18'8 x 7'2 (5.69m x 2.19m)Storage: 18'8 x 7'2 (5.69m x 2.19m)Storage: 18'8 x 7'2 (5.69m x 2.19m)Double Garage: 18'0 x 12'10 (5.49m x 3.91m)Double Garage: 18'0 x 12'10 (5.49m x 3.91m)Double Garage: 18'0 x 12'10 (5.49m x 3.91m)Loft Room: 18'5 x 9'10 (5.62m x 3.00m)ToiletRear Garden
