The Property
FOUR BEDROOM DETACHED COUNTRY RESIDENCE - DETACHED ANNEX - DOUBLE GARAGE - PADDOCK - SWIMMING POOL - AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY - LANDSCAPED GARDENS - LARGE PRIVATE DRIVE - BEAUTIFUL LOCATION. This four bedroom detached family home is positioned in a sizeable plot and also boasts a one bedroom detached bungalow. There is a separate paddock of approximately 1.3 acres to the side which is ideal for a small holding or stabling. Currently there is planning permission in place to create a two storey extension to the residence allowing a further master bedroom with an en-suite and dressing room on the first floor and a large reception room on the ground floor. You approach the property via a sweeping private drive that leads initially to the detached double garage and then to the landscaped gardens. The primary residence has four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, downstairs shower room, two reception rooms, a study, a large kitchen/breakfast room and a good sized conservatory. The detached bungalow, which would make a perfect annexe or holiday let, comprises a double bedroom, good sized lounge, kitchen and bathroom. There is a private courtyard garden to the rear of the bungalow making a fully self contained residence. The extensive gardens of the main property are a true delight and have been lovingly nurtured and landscaped to create a stunning outside space not unbecoming of a stately home. There is a 10 metre swimming pool with summer house also set within the grounds making the perfect home for all of the family to enjoy. The Alkham Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the village of Alkham is located midway between the coastal and port towns of Dover and Folkestone. The high speed link to central London is available from both Folkestone and Dover mainline railway stations, a short drive from Alkham, with a rail journey time of under 55 minutes.
