Ash Tree House,Canterbury Road, Densole,

£550,000

5 Bedroom House For Sale in Ash Tree House,Canterbury Road, Densole,

“I bought the land as it was a wonderful location backing onto the countryside and built this house and its neighbour very much with the country cottage style in mind – but with none of the maintenance issues that people with old country cottages have to cope with. For example the attractive weatherboarding is a low maintenance cladding that is resistant to rot and immune to pests and insects. Although used in the same way as wood it will not warp or expand like traditional timber and stands up to the harshest of weathers. I also wanted to provide a feeling of light and space and ensure that everything was provided for aesthetic beauty, practicality and safety including the installation of a sprinkler system throughout the house.

 

Although the house is behind the pub it is very quiet and peaceful but the main road with its regular bus service is within very easy walking distance. This goes between Folkestone and the historic city of Canterbury with its historic buildings, high street stores, myriad of pubs and restaurants, theatres and cinemas as well as two universities and a wide variety of private and state schools. The house is only a mile from the village of Hawkinge which is a charming and friendly place with plenty of activities. There is the well attended cricket and social club as well as a football club, three pubs and a number of takeaways and a new and enormous state-of-the-art Lidl for all your grocery shopping. As well as the regular bus service you can be on the M20 motorway in a few minutes for Ashford, Dover and London and Folkestone is not very far so you can even pop over to France for lunch via the Eurotunnel or the ferry. There are excellent secondary grammar schools in Folkestone as well as in Dover and Canterbury while there are two good primary schools in the village and another in nearby Selsted”.

A property designed and owned by a retired architect is likely to be something unusual and attractive and this charming detached house set well back from the road at Densole is no exception. As you approach via the long driveway and gravel frontage you are immediately charmed by the beautiful cladding and overall design of the property that gives the impression of a modern day cottage with its weatherboard and fascinating roof line exterior together with the attractive cedar overhang above the front door. Once across the threshold you are in for a wonderful surprise as you can look upwards to the top floor from the very light and bright hallway, giving you the feeling you are in an atrium, owing to the plethora of windows at every level providing plenty of natural daylight. You can also begin to appreciate the quality and detail that has gone into the design and build of this delightful home with its engineered oak flooring and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, the lovely oak doors, spot lights in the ceilings and even the mirrored sliding doors in the downstairs cloakroom discreetly hiding the boiler and very large hot water tank. As you wander around the house you begin to realise that it is a bit like a Tardis since from the outside it may not appear to have such spacious accommodation. There is a good sized lounge and a wonderful open plan kitchen and din... Read more
