If you are looking for a property that has all the joys of rural living yet is only a short distance from the historic city of Canterbury, this stunning eco friendly contemporary home on the outskirts of Sturry could tick all the right boxes. It backs onto fields and provides superb views across the Kent countryside but is just a minute’s drive from Sturry station where the high speed train can whisk you to the centre of London in just over an hour. Built about three years ago this lovely light and bright family home provides everything you need for 21st century living including a superb 35ft kitchen/diner room with two sets of bi folding doors to the rear terrace. It has great kerb appeal from the moment you first see the attractive exterior with its varied roof lines, vast cathedral style windows, weatherboard and brick walls and modern front door.

Walking into the spacious reception hall you can begin to appreciate the quality finish including oak doors, a glass and oak staircase and slate flooring leading through into the kitchen/diner. This is really the ‘hub of the household’ and where the family is likely to congregate for much of the time. When the six bi folding doors are open it is like bringing the outdoors inside and creates a stunning atmosphere for both family life and entertaining. The delightful kitchen includes a range of high quality units housing a double oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and other appliances as well as a long central island/breakfast bar with an induction hob. From the dining end there are double doors to the good sized lounge so these can be open to provide a free flowing feel that is ideal if you are having a party.

The ground floor also includes a utility room, a cloakroom and a large study, This is ideal if you want to work from home because it looks out over the front of the property so you can see anyone arriving and if they are business visitors they don’t need to go into the main part of the house.

Upstairs there is a very spacious galleried landing leading to the modern family bathroom with its stand alone bath and separate shower as well as to the four double bedrooms with wonderful views across the countryside. These include a guest room with cathedral style windows and an en-suite shower room and the stunning main bedroom with its french doors to a glass Juliette balcony and rural views as far as the eye can see. This also has an en-suite double shower that has direct access to a large dressing room. However this room is also accessible from the landing so could be used as an additional bedroom or a nursery.

Outside there is a driveway with off road parking leading to the detached double garage with solar panels providing much of the electricity for the property. The rear garden is very easy to manage and is mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders and a charming terrace leading to a covered outdoor seating area for al fresco dining. There is also a pathway to the end of the garden where you can sit and just revel in the views.

“We bought the house from new and it was really the views that were a massive factor in our decision. We also loved the look of the house and particularly the very large kitchen/dining room and also the fact that, although we are out in the country, it is very easy to get to Canterbury with its high street stores, individual shops, restaurants, theatres and universities. However our circumstances have changed so we hope another family will be able to enjoy everything about our lovely home.

We are not far from the Broad Oak farm shop for local produce and every day essentials as well as the Golden Lion pub if you want a drink. Sturry is just three minutes away with its station and convenience store. It also includes the renowned Kathton House fine dining restaurant, a pharmacy, post office and hairdresser as well as the famous Kings School Junior school and the Sturry primary school, graded Outstanding by Ofsted. There is a bus service that can take you into Canterbury, Herne Bay or as far as the Thanet towns. Nearby Fordwich is famous for being the smallest town in England with its own town hall. It is full of attractive and historic buildings and has the river Stour running through the centre and also includes two excellent olde worlde pubs – the Fordwich Arms and the George and Dragon.

For anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits there are wonderful places to go fishing on the river, while the nearby Westbere Lakes offers sailing opportunities as well as fishing and clay pigeon shooting takes place at the Greenfields Shooting grounds in Sturry”.
