5 bedroom detached house for saleAshford Road, Canterbury
This stunning detached family home situated on the outskirts of Canterbury, with glorious and mature gardens which backs directly onto the River Stour and look out over the Hambrook Marsh Nature Reserve.
On the ground floor the accommodation comprises large entrance hallway, kitchen and a large lounge/diner. The ground floor then leads through to a second kitchen and living area with shower room, leading upstairs to two double bedrooms. Upstairs in the main section of the house there are three double bedrooms, family bathroom and separate w/c. All of the bedrooms and living spaces to the rear of the property have views over looking the gardens and river Stour.
Outside at the front of the property the driveway is large enough for several cars. At the rear is an amazing garden with the added benefit of the wide river frontage, the garden has mature flower beds and trees overlooking the river and countryside beyond. The gardens also offer three sheds plus a brick built workshop with plumbing for washing machine and utility space.
The property is conveniently situated just a few minutes drive from the bustling city of Canterbury and within easy walking distance of the nearby retail outlet, Morrisons supermarket and the numerous shops and business of Wincheap. Yet despite this incredibly convenient location, the property has a decidedly rural feel to it, as the garden backs onto the River Stour and looks out over the Hambrook Marsh Nature Reserve beyond. The property is also within easy reach of the nearby villages of Chartham and Chilham and some outstanding countryside for walking, cycling and many other outdoor pursuits. The Cathedral City of Canterbury offers a wide range of independent retailers as well as High Street brands. It also offers a good selection of restaurants, bars, and leisure amenities. It has an excellent selection of both state and independent schools, along with three universities, two mainline train stations and two hospitals.

The Vendor's View - The setting of our home provides two different aspects, you feel close to the town from the front and in the middle of the countryside out the back. We are on the main route into Canterbury, just minutes away from the Wincheap shopping complex and then into the city. Our garden backs onto the River Stour and beyond that are the lakes, so the outlook is stunning, with a private feel.
We wanted a home by the river, so this property was perfect for us. The double-width front opens to a large entrance hallway, so you are met with a feeling of space. Our home has all the flexibility you could need; to one end of the house we have a large kitchen overlooking the garden, a generously-sized living/dining area and three double bedrooms. At the other end we have a second kitchen and a stairway to two further double bedrooms – which could be completely separate if required. There is further potential here too, as we have planning permission for a very large orangery at the back.
The outside space is fantastic for hosting barbecues and we are in the garden as much as possible. The access from inside to out is ideal, with doors from both kitchens and the living room. We have a workshop/utility room just outside the main kitchen and a cycle shed for additional storage out the front.
We have loved the marvellous views and living on the river, both of which have made this a truly unique home.
