Full description

A contemporary, oak framed property built in a traditional style with distinctive jettied walls and handmade clay tiles.

This large and striking property is situated just off Joy Lane near to the school, and lies within half a mile of Whitstable's extensive beach front. A vibrant, trendy and eclectic fishing town, Whitstable is close by, but remains just far enough to ensure that the hustle and bustle is kept at arms length, also affording this property more space.

Light and space are prominent throughout the home, with sizeable rooms, high ceilings and large windows, whilst a wood-burning stove adds a welcome cosiness to the main living room. Not however that it is entirely necessary, as this home was recently built to modern standards, ensuring that this is an extremely thermal efficient home, heated by an air source heat pump, which is offset by photo voltaic solar cells subtly laid on the roof.

A thoughtful design and sensible layout provides a practical and social space for the whole family.

A large and bespoke, solid wood Higham kitchen finished with granite work surfaces and Neff appliances leads into an adjoining living and dining room. It is here that a contemporary stove provides a warming focal point and bi-fold doors with internal blinds open onto the garden and limestone terrace to create an extension of the living space.

Completing the ground floor is a utility/laundry room and a separate cloakroom.

An oak and glass staircase leads up to the first floor and onto a large, open landing where there are four double bedrooms each benefitting from built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has its own adjoining en-suite shower room whilst the other rooms share the family bathroom. Both bathrooms are finished in light Portuguese limestone with oak cabinets and Hansgrohe fittings.

The second floor loft room is currently accessed by a loft hatch and ladder, but has been fully insulated, fitted with two Velux windows and is prepared for conversion into an additional room, subject to any necessary consents. The floor joists were laid with a view to adding a second stair case from the first floor landing.

With all that Whitstable has to offer on the doorstep, including boutique shops, restaurants, sailing, kitesurfing and other waterborne activities, there will be plenty to keep you busy.

The south facing garden has been designed to be enjoyed, and imaginatively planted to create an interesting space. Private and well screened, the garden is completely enclosed by mature shrubs and a beech hedge.

There is plenty of space to soak up the sun or entertain guests whilst remaining easy to manage. A shed provides some storage, as well as a log store to supply the wood-burning stove. Rain water is harvested and stored within a 6 cu.m underground tank.

A driveway to the front of the property has space for two vehicles, in addition to a garage, which is fitted with a power lift, boat stacking system within the roof space.

Minutes from the A299 between Faversham and Thanet, there is also easy access onto the A2/M2 corridor between Dover, Canterbury and London. Whitstable's mainline station operates fast services to London St Pancras in approximately 1hr15m.
