Property Description

Full description

A stunning modern architect designed home boasting nearly 5000 square feet (including the outbuilding) and occupying a generous plot and set in the rural and much sought-after village of Staple. The property was built in 2010 by the present owner to provide spacious and well-designed social living accommodation with great views over the garden and countryside.

Entered via a spacious hallway with a galleried landing leading to a vast contemporary style open-plan well-equipped kitchen/living area with lovely views over the garden. There is a separate triple aspect family living room with log-burner, a study, a dining room, boiler room, cloakroom, utility room and boot room.

On the first floor, there is an extremely large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, which has been designed so that it could be remodelled to convert into two or potentially three rooms, if required. There are two further very large double bedrooms with contemporary styled en-suites.

Externally, the property has a good-sized garden surrounded by countryside with lawns, mature trees, driveway, double garage/workshop with storage over and ample parking.

Staple has a village hall, a church and a public house, whilst further amenities are found in both nearby villages; Wingham and Ash. The Cathedral City of Canterbury is approximately 9 miles away where you will find a variety of shopping, dining, cultural and recreational facilities, as well as a number of highly regarded schools in both the public and private sectors including grammar schools. The Cinque Port town of Sandwich is approximately 4.5 miles way and is home to Royal St. Georges Golf Club venue for the occasional open.

The Vendor's View - We absolutely loved the peace and tranquillity of the area. Staple is a lovely little village with a friendly community yet quiet atmosphere, and we were keen to live here. The property was initially a bungalow and with relevant permissions, we were able to transform the property into the wonderful house that stands here today.

The house itself is large and spacious; the ideal place for entertaining with family and friends. We regularly hold coffee mornings and parties, and it doesn’t matters how many people you invite, as it never feels crowded here. There is plenty of off-road parking too, which is especially useful when you have visitors.

Orchard Lea is in a perfect position, central to the village and all the amenities locally while, at the same time, surrounded by country walks. From the house you can walk through fields and woodlands for miles without ever crossing a main road. The community here is good, with a great pub up the road that serves really good food and holds a monthly quiz. There are also quizzes and regular events at the village hall, and a very large country fair on the playing fields every June.

There are bus services in the nearby villages of Wingham & Ash, and trains from Aylesham (just a 10 minute drive away), which is on the fast route to London and/or Dover. We’re also close to the A2, so we have great accessibility to anything we could possibly need, and yet in a lovely, quiet position in the countryside.

We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to build another house in the village, which is our reason to sell. We love living here and wouldn’t leave the area at all.
