Full description

An impressive detached house offering extensive and versatile accommodation in an enviable setting in South Canterbury with easy access to the City centre, schools and colleges. The property is tucked off New Dover Road towards the end of a private drive accessing only two houses. Having been extended by the existing owners the accommodation now includes four reception rooms and four bedrooms with three bath/shower rooms. The sitting room features a wood burning stove and the adjoining family room has a part vaulted ceiling and wall to wall bi-folding doors opening to the rear garden. The dining room features a galleried landing above and the study has double doors opening to the glazed porch. The first floor is arranged in two areas accessed by separate staircases, the family accommodation has three bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and built-in wardrobes, plus the family bathroom. A separate staircase leads to the guest suite which comprises a most impressive bedroom with vaulted ceiling, ensuite bathroom, kitchenette and rear balcony. A separate external door can give access to the guest suite thus it can provide self-contained annexe style accommodation if required. In addition part of the garage/workshop on the ground floor could be converted (subject to any necessary planning consents and building regulations) to provide additional kitchen/living accommodation for a more substantial annexe over two floors. The integral garage/workshop is an impressive facility with additional w/c, fitted surfaces with sink and double glazed sliding doors opening to the rear garden.
Externally the property is approached by a driveway, owned by the neighbouring property over which No. 42a has vehicular right of way, onto the parking area with space for four cars and access to the garage.
