Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual detached family home believed to date from 1929, offering surprisingly large, stylish accommodation arranged over two floors, set in beautifully landscaped gardens of 0.3 acre with a large driveway and detached double garage.

The property is full of characterful period features including high ceilings, ornate coving and feature fireplaces, yet a great deal of time and care has been taken by the present owner to create a stylish and contemporary living space.

Set over two floors, the spacious and elegant accommodation includes a panelled entrance hall opening onto a stunning teak panelled octagonal reception hall with inlaid wooden floor and central stained glass ceiling. The graceful dining room and sitting room each include curved window seats and feature fireplaces. The contemporary Shaker-style kitchen includes hand-built cabinets and granite work surfaces and leads onto an open plan breakfast/dining area with two sets of French windows creating a wonderful flow through to the patio and garden beyond. Also on the ground floor are a large family room, shower room and two double bedrooms. On the first floor, the sizeable master bedroom is complemented by a luxury en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The accommodation, whilst well planned, is also extremely versatile offering a variety of potential configurations.

Outside, the property is approached via a gated entrance into a private gravelled driveway with ample parking for several vehicles and a detached double length garage. The front and rear gardens cover a total area of 0.3 acre, are landscaped and principally laid to lawn with well stocked borders.

The property is situated in a convenient position close to the centre of the market town of Ashford with its wide array of shopping and leisure facilities along with the International rail station providing fast access to London (37 minutes to London St Pancras) and the continent. Ashford also provides an excellent range of well-respected schooling choices with Ashford School, Highworth Grammar School and Kent School of Music next door. Somersby is also ideally placed for access to local and national road networks with junction 9 of the M20 just one mile distant, providing access to London and the Kent coast, or the A28 at the end of the road leading to Canterbury or Tenterden.

Properties such as this rarely make an appearance on the open market and we strongly recommend viewing the property to fully appreciate the sheer size and quality of accommodation on offer.
