Haverbrack has recently undergone substantial renovation to craft a contemporary family home, featuring some fantastic open-plan rooms with an abundance of natural light from the specially imported Swedish sliding doors and large windows. The natural slate roof tiles were sourced from Virginia and contrast nicely with the white Monocouche render.
The main feature of the ground floor is the substantial L-shaped kitchen/dining/family room with a vaulted, partially glazed ceiling and two sets of sliding doors, which look out and provide access to the rear garden, with separate doors to the side garden. The family room sits to one end, with an inset wood burning stove set in an exposed brick surround; the kitchen is to the centre and is well fitted with contemporary wall and floor units and a large central island with solid wood worktop and breakfast bar, and the dining room has fabulous views over the rear garden. A utility/drying room and a shower room are accessed off the family room.
The well-proportioned drawing room sits to the rear of the house; the room has a large inglenook fireplace and two sets of sliding doors, with a doorway into the sitting room which also features sliding doors. Completing the ground floor accommodation are a study (which could be used as a bedroom), a boot room and a cloakroom, all of which are accessed from the central entrance hall.
The light and airy, galleried first floor landing gives access to the master suite, two further bedrooms (one currently used as a substantial dressing room) and a family bathroom. The master suite runs the entire depth of the first floor, with a Juliet balcony providing views over the rear garden, the en suite bathroom features high quality marble tops and floor tiles. A doorway currently leads to an extremely well-proportioned dressing room. The contemporary family bathroom features porcelain wall and floor tiles, a free standing slipper bath and walk-in shower with body jets and a rainfall shower.
A staircase from the landing rises to the second floor, where there are two further double bedrooms (one with a Juliet balcony) and a play room.
Challock is a pretty village in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and has an excellent range of local facilities. The nearby towns of Ashford and Canterbury provide a broader selection of shops, schools and leisure facilities.
Road and rail links in the area are good with the M20 (Junction 8) accessible via the A20 and the A252/A28 to Canterbury. Trains run from Charing to London Victoria in about 80 minutes; Ashford International offers a service to London St Pancras in 37 minutes, as well as Eurostar services to the Continent.
Haverbrack is set back from Canterbury Road in a private, secluded position. To the front of property is a walled garden. A gravelled driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and there is a detached double garage.
The gardens are largely laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees. There is large brick-built outbuilding equipped with power, heating, double glazed windows and French doors. This would make an ideal home office or even an annexe (subject to the necessary consents). At the rear of the plot there is a beautiful meadow, which we understand was formerly a paddock.
