Driving along the aptly named Beech Avenue with its virtual tunnel of trees and lovely views across the Kent countryside you feel the calm and peace that continues as you arrive at Chestnut Close. On rounding the corner you immediately see this beautifully maintained detached family home with uninterrupted rural views as far as the eye can see. It was originally built in 2001 and has been completely updated and modernised by the present owners in recent years. There is a block paved driveway providing off road parking up to four cars and a ‘no maintenance’ front garden adorned with Scottish cobbles and box hedging leading to the front door.

Once inside the entrance hall the first thing you notice is the free flowing atmosphere as you wander through double doors to the inner hallway and this feeling is enhanced by the superb Kahrs engineered oak flooring that flows through much of the ground floor.

The contemporary kitchen/breakfast room was designed and installed by Neptune just over two years ago in their traditional Chichester range painted in fog with Porcelanosa floor tiles, Silestone worktops and a central island. There is a range cooker, dishwasher, double butler sink, freezer and a large larder fridge as well as a bespoke double larder and laundry cupboard which houses the washing machine and boiler and a door to the terrace.

For more formal occasions there is a delightful dining room and double doors through to the elegant drawing room with its marble fireplace enclosing a high quality Chesney wood burner and french doors to the terrace.

There is a very light and bright sitting room with a wall mounted TV that also has french doors to the terrace. This terrace wraps around most of the extremely easy to maintain rear garden and leads to the stunning study/garden room that has recently been converted from the original double garage. It makes an excellent work space if you want to run a business or work from home but be slightly removed from the domestic part of the house.

Upstairs there is a modern family shower room, a large laundry cupboard and five double bedrooms all with superb views across fields and countryside in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These include a main suite with an en suite shower and walk in dressing room. There is also a guest room with en-suite shower room and fully fitted wardrobes. All shower rooms are furnished with fully tiled walk in showers, undefloor heating, heated towel rails and bathroom mirrors with radio and light.

The very easy to maintain west facing rear garden has been landscaped and is surrounded by Jackson fencing. It has well manicured lawns, raised shrub beds and a central path leading to a hop covered pergola. There is also a good sized summerhouse adjacent to a beautiful palm tree and silver birch trees while the large and attractive terrace is ideal for outdoor entertaining.

“We moved here in 2006 and have loved everything about living here but our children have now grown up and moved away so we would like to be closer to them. We really liked the approach to the house when we first came to visit and when we saw the view it ‘sealed the deal’ for us.

Since moving here we have gone to considerable effort to modernise, refurbish and improve the property and will definitely miss our Neptune kitchen which has truly become a comfortable heart of the home.

Both the house and the garden are very easy to look after and ideal for both family life and for entertaining and it is now ready for anyone to move straight into without having to do anything except install their own furniture.

Approaching our home up Beech Avenue always looks lovely whatever the season. We love the position because not only have we got the gorgeous views we can literally stroll out of the front door and be in Kent countryside and all it has to offer without the need for a car.

At the same time it is not far to the station with connections to Ashford and the bus stop at the end of the road while in the village there are two pubs, two convenience stores, a hairdresser and a post office as well as the Chartham Vinery, an ancient church and a village hall with a range of activities as well as Chartham Primary School.

We are only about five minutes drive from Canterbury with its historical buildings, high street stores, individual shops, restaurants, excellent grammar and private schools as well as universities, a golf course and leisure centres. You can even walk into the city alongside the river Stour with a pathway to the West Gate if you are feeling energetic. We are within easy reach of Ashford for the high speed train that whisks you to St Pancras in 36 minutes and not far from Folkestone and Dover for access to London, the Continent or the coast for a day on the beach”.
