Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional modern residence, built in 2010 in a distinctive barn style and situated within Belvedere Farm, an exclusive collection of just four traditionally styled modern properties. The property enjoys a magnificent setting, surrounded by some truly spectacular countryside and set within four acres of orchards, paddocks and lovely gardens.

The front door opens into a wonderful reception hall with a cloakroom, a galleried landing above and a beautiful tumbled porcelain floor. From here, a set of oak glazed double doors lead into a pleasant drawing room with an inset contemporary mirrored wood burning stove and French doors which look out over the gardens beyond.

A further set of oak glazed double doors open into a stunning open plan kitchen, dining and family room which combine to create a thoroughly impressive living space.

The sitting area has a set of French doors which open out onto a full width patio, whilst the kitchen has been fitted with a superb range of high quality ‘Hacker’ contemporary white and wood effect wall and floor units, set around striking light quartz work surfaces, an excellent selection of integrated appliances and a large island and breakfast bar.

The kitchen is further complemented by an adjoining utility room, whilst the dining area opens into a lovely oak and double glazed garden room which affords panoramic views over the garden and the surrounding countryside.

The impressive living accommodation is completed by a spacious study to the front of the house, equipped with an excellent range of fitted office furniture.

On the first floor, a wide galleried landing leads to five double bedrooms (each with built in wardrobes and three with en suites) and a spacious family bathroom with a contemporary white suite.

The master bedroom is a good size double room with an en suite shower room, a walk-in wardrobe and superb views over countryside.

The kitchen also leads to an ancillary hallway with stable doors to the front and rear of the house, a well appointed shower room and access to the double garage. This hallway also has a staircase which rises to a second landing with a large double bedroom with ample storage and a stylish en suite. This section of the house ideally lends itself towards use as an annexe for an elderly relative or perhaps an au pair.


There is a pretty front garden which is laid to lawn and planted with mature flower and shrub borders. A block paved driveway provides parking for several vehicles and leads to an integral double garage.

To the rear of the house there are beautifully planted, landscaped gardens with a lovely, full width patio and a circular ‘Caribbean style’ pavillion. There is a further section of garden, enclosed by post and rail fencing, with some raised vegetable beds, a selection of fruit trees and a superb children’s play area.

This leads to a large fruit orchard with a variety of mature pear trees and three large paddocks with post and rail fencing. There is a mobile stable block which was erected in 2012 (available by separate negotiation) with two boxes measuring approx. 11 ft x 10 ft and the main field has a vehicular access from Plum Pudding Lane.


The Paddocks enjoys an idyllic location, situated just off a quiet country lane in the extremely sought after village of Dargate. The village is surrounded by some beautiful countryside which is predominantly farmland and woodland with many footpaths and bridle ways ideal for walking and riding. The Dove public house is just a short stroll away which forms the heart of Dargate’s community. Dargate is also extremely well situated for access to London and the coast via the A299 and the M2 motorway network.

Other nearby villages include Hernhill and Boughton, which offer good local amenities including churches, a convenience store, a doctors, primary schools and several public houses.

The seaside town of Whitstable (4 miles away) is famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside, The town has a variety of independent shops and boutiques, as well as high street names. There are good local schools, numerous restaurants, excellent leisure facilities and its own mainline railway station with a high speed service to St Pancras.

The nearby cathedral city of Canterbury (8 miles) offers an even wider range of shopping and leisure amenities including the White Friars Shopping Centre and the Marlowe Theatre.
