As the Automated, solid wood sliding gate opens, you get your first glimpse of this unique and outstanding residence and it will take your breath away. Although only built about four years ago the very impressive Austen House nestles in about 0.4536 of an acre and has been designed in the elegant Georgian style, but, with all the mod cons associated with contemporary living. Architect designed with meticulous attention to detail, this property embraces modern day living incorporating a fully structured electronic heating, lighting and sound system. Everything about the house and the grounds is of the highest quality. The exterior includes a vast resin bonded driveway and forecourt that leads to the detached four car garage, while the main property incorporates hand crafted external brickwork and Kent peg tiles as well as delightful ornamental coving and landscaped gardens. The beautifully thought out spacious interior includes a superb sweeping staircase, gas operated flame effect fireplaces to lounge and master bedroom, a natural fireplace in the formal drawing room, multi pane sash windows, coved ceilings, high skirting boards, and an elegant charmingly restful décor that is a delight to behold. Indeed the whole property has been designed with family life, leisure and pleasure in mind. This is immediately apparent as you walk through the front door and into the large and stunning double height reception hall with impressive wooden and wrought iron balustrading to the curved staircase, ascending to a beautiful galleried landing that overlooks the hall and is embellished with a fascinating central light, cascading from the ceiling above. The hall leads to all the main rooms on the ground floor including the wonderfully spacious open plan family area with its stunning kitchen and light and bright casual dining area and sumptuous lounge. There are double aspect bi folding doors to the enormous terrace and garden. The family area also gives access to the large Utility room, having floor to ceiling storage on one wall and lower units with sink on the other, as well as accommodating all laundry equipment. The fully fitted kitchen, has wall units incorporating built-in appliances which include, two ovens, combi microwave, coffee machine, a full height refrigerator, full height freezer, wine cooler and dishwasher.  A large induction hob, with overhead extract is located on a grand central island which can double as a breakfast bar and again includes considerable storage. The wonderful indoor swimming pool complex, can also be accessed from the family lounge area, via a separate corridor. There is not only the swimming pool, but a separate, mosaic tiled Jacuzzi, steam room, shower room and changing facilities. The heated swimming pool has a motorised vinyl cover, being retained on all sides when closed for complete safety and is surrounded by natural stone flooring, with bi folding doors to the outer terrace. To provide an even greater wow factor there is a fibre optic lighting system incorporated into the ceiling, so at night you feel you are lying in the pool looking up at twinkling stars. All of the equipment required for the house’s heating and swimming pool functions, is located in the plant room. If you enjoy entertaining guests there is also an elegant drawing room with an attractive fireplace and two sets of french doors to the terrace and a charming dining room with herringbone style natural wood flooring, where you could comfortably seat more than a dozen people. A good sized office with views across the driveway and a second cloakroom complete the extensive ground floor accommodation.

“It has always been a great home for parties and games in the garden as well as being near the country for rural walks. We can even stroll into Canterbury in about half an hour where we can enjoy the shops, restaurants and entertainment. We are also very close to the St Lawrence Kent County cricket ground for any cricketing enthusiasts and there are very good grammar schools and world renowned private schools in the vicinity as well as two universities and two hospitals. There are also other recreational opportunities in the area including the Kingsmead & King’s School Sports & Leisure Centres. Village primary schools in nearby Bridge and Stelling Minnis and local well respected riding centres.Sailing, fishing and bathing are all possible, as nearby we have a wonderful coast line stretching from Whitstable right around the coast to Folkestone and beyond. For golfing aficionados there is the Canterbury Golf Club, but if you want to go further afield you can try the Championship golf courses at Sandwich and Deal including Royal St George, Princes and the Royal Cinque Ports clubs.A bonus for commuters is the high speed train from Canterbury West that will whisk you to St Pancras in under an hour or you can go to Dover and Folkestone for trips into Europe”.
