1 4 3 2

As you turn into the spacious block paved driveway and park your car the first thing you notice when you look back at this truly delightful modern property is the enormous and very impressive, floor to ceiling cathedral style window that looks out from the main living space. It truly is remarkable. Having seen the window you will be impatient to walk up the wide entrance steps and through the modern front door to see what is on the other side of that amazing window. Once across the threshold into the attractive hall with its very trendy oak and glass staircase to the first floor, you walk up a few steps and into an awe inspiring lounge/kitchen/dining room with the vast window at the seating end and a wall of large sliding doors to the terrace and garden beyond the kitchen area providing plenty of natural light as well as steps down to the double garage. This breathtaking room encompasses a massive vaulted ceiling that is more than 18ft high, interspersed with vast arched beams, Karndean flooring and it even includes a suspended bridge that links the two bedrooms suites on the first floor.

The kitchen area is a delight for anyone who enjoys catering. It includes a selection of very attractive modern units with a vast central island containing the induction hob and a discreetly hidden central extractor system, numerous cabinets and plenty of high quality work surface areas. There is a built in Neff oven and coffee machine, a warming drawer, an integrated fridge freezer and a dishwasher. There is plenty of room for a large dining table and the spacious seating area takes full advantage of the large window that provides panoramic views across the Alkham Valley. This floor also includes a utility room with doors to the lower patio area, a charming study/fifth bedroom with inspiring views and two double bedrooms that are served by the contemporary family bathroom with its stand alone bath and double shower.

At the top of the stairs is the master bedroom with its attractive wall of fitted wardrobes incorporating a discreet entrance to the superb en suite bathroom that includes an oval shaped stand alone bath and separate wet room style double shower and contemporary ‘his and hers’ basins. Across the bridge is a self contained guest room with a large en suite shower room. Both these bedrooms enjoy excellent views across the Kent countryside.

Accessed from the kitchen area is a beautiful terrace with porcelain tiles and is an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining or just relaxing in the sunshine. There are also steps leading up from a lower patio and a large lawn backing onto a charming woodland area with apple trees. At the front of the house in addition to the block paved hard standing surrounded by a lawn with trees and shrubs, there is an attractive shrub bed beneath the large window, surrounded by a dwarf brick wall.

“We moved here about three years ago as we fell in love with the position. The views are stunning and we are near the centre of the village but despite being adjacent to the road, which is ideal for access to Dover and Folkestone, it is very quiet. What we originally bought was actually a small bungalow which, apart from a couple of walls, has now been totally replaced by the lovely house we spent so much time and effort developing. However, we are about to start a new chapter in our lives so we hope that another family will be able to get great pleasure from everything we have done to create this unique home.

Alkham is a friendly village community with a cricket club and a village hall where there are regular film shows and other activities. It is a wonderful spot if you enjoy walking and cycling and there are bridle paths for riding as well as an equestrian centre. You can play golf at nearby courses whether it is Etchinghill Golf Club or the Walmer and Kingdown Club near Deal and for water sports and sailing there is the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club in Dover. If you want a pleasant meal without having to take the car out there is the renowned Marquis hotel and restaurant within walking distance.

The location is extremely convenient because if you need to commute to London you can be at Folkestone West station in five or six minutes for the high speed train to St Pancras, while it is simple to get to the Eurotunnel for a day trip to France. There are excellent private and grammar schools in Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury while the primary school in River has been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted. Shopping facilities are easily accessible in Whitfield as well as Folkestone and nearby River can cater for any immediate needs".
