4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in "Valhalla", Short Lane, Alkham, Dover, CT15 7BZ

"We fell in love with the quality and uniqueness of the property when we first saw it 11 years ago. It is very quiet and peaceful and the views are breathtaking. We have enjoyed enhancing the property over the years with the new kitchen and bathrooms but take great pleasure in the period features that give the house its special character.

The arched theme continues across the electronic gated double garage and over the vast brick built carport with its beamed ceiling, flagstone floor, external cloakroom and storage facilities that would make an excellent games room or could be incorporated into the property as additional accommodation.The house was originally built in 1984 by a builder for his own use so you know the quality will be first class. The design and feel is that of a modern version of a Tudor house and this is well illustrated internally as well as externally when, the moment you walk into the hall, you see all the beautiful solid dark wood doors, the Tudor style archways and the be...
