This charming property backs onto a delightful chalk stream and surrounding farmland. It was rebuilt and extended about four years ago and, while it has a very attractive and modern exterior, nothing prepares you for the ‘wow factor’ experienced when you first see the interior of this fascinating and unique house. The modern front door opens into a vast open plan living space with engineered oak flooring that flows throughout the property. It is dominated by an impressive curved staircase, surrounding an internal circular ‘turret’ that houses a shower room on the ground floor and a family bathroom on the first floor. There is underfloor heating throughout.

 

‘Light and bright’ is the cornerstone of the design in this interesting property with the dining area including three bi-folding doors to a large terrace that wraps around much of the house. The lounge area incorporates floor to ceiling, double aspect corner windows and a triangular side window as well as a modern log burning style gas fire. Tucked away, partially out of sight, is a useful study area with yet another window overlooking the front garden and driveway.

 

Another set of bi-folding doors lead to the terrace from the stunning kitchen that also includes floor to ceiling sloping windows overlooking the beautiful rear garden and the countryside beyond. The kitchen includes modern units with a hard wearing granite style worktop housing two built in ovens, an induction hob and extractor, as well as two integrated fridge freezers, a dishwasher and an air conditioning unit. There is an adjacent fitted utility room. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom serviced by the ground floor shower room and a cosy snug with French doors to the terrace that could always be used as an office/playroom or additional fifth bedroom.

 

On the first floor the circular family bathroom includes a modern oval bath with overhead shower, vanity basin as well as a triangular skylight providing plenty of natural light. There are three double bedrooms including the main with an en-suite shower room and built in sliding door wardrobes and another has fitted cupboards and a floor to ceiling window giving a great view across the countryside. There is some eaves storage and the two main bedrooms have air conditioning units.

 

At the front of the house there are shrub beds and a large gravel frontage where you can park four or five cars. However it is the rear garden that holds even more surprises. It includes a well-manicured lawn interspersed with trees and flowerbeds, a charming decked area adjacent to the terrace for al fresco dining, sleeper surround vegetable beds and a very large garden shed. The ‘piece de resistance’ is the raised decked terrace at the end of the garden looking over the clear and free flowing chalk stream with its ducks and other wildlife including water voles. Here you can spend many happy hours just watching the wild fowl swimming up and down, the cows in the fields opposite or, if you are very lucky, the sight of a kingfisher diving into the stream.

“The property was originally a small bungalow that was virtually demolished and rebuilt by developers. They created this superb property and we bought it directly from them and have thoroughly enjoyed our time here over the past four years, but we feel it is time to start a new chapter in our lives. It is a lovely home for entertaining friends and family both inside and out and it has always been wonderful to be able to sit looking out over the stream to the fields beyond.

 

Littlebourne is a vibrant village with plenty of activities and the house is within walking distance of the village shop and post office. It is only a short stroll to the recreation ground that includes a children's playground, skateboarding, an outdoor gym and a BMX circuit. It is also home to the Littlebourne cricket club for those who enjoy the summer sound of leather on willow. Buses can take you to the centre of the UNESCO heritage city of Canterbury with its historic buildings, high street stores, individual shops, bars and eateries within eight minutes. For commuters it is only one and a half miles to Bekesbourne station where it is easy to park or, alternatively, you can drive to Canterbury West where the high speed train can whisk you to central London in under an hour.

 

From an entertainment perspective the house is not far from the Canterbury golf club, the Polo Sports club and the delightful Evenhill pub/restaurant. In the other direction Wingham with its pubs and restaurants is five minutes away and if you want to entertain the youngsters it is only just over half a mile to Howletts Wild Animal Park, while for horsey enthusiasts the nearby Barton Field Farm Equestrian centre is ideal. There are wonderful walks along the river Stour and adjoining countryside. There is a good primary school in the village, and both Canterbury and Sandwich have excellent grammar and private secondary schools”.
