This very impressive family home originally built in the mid 1920s is in the West End of Folkestone. Five double bedrooms, plenty of living accommodation and secluded outdoor space. Stunning gym with an aqua therapy pool, sauna and steam room. If you want to work from home there is a large and well fitted study as well as a brick built outbuilding that could become a separate office. London it is only half a mile to the station that can whisk you to St Pancras in under an hour and it is not far to the Channel Tunnel so you could be in France in less than an hour

Driving up to the property you cannot fail to be impressed by the high outer wall providing excellent privacy and the two sets of handcrafted electronic wrought iron gates leading to the double garage and vast block paved frontage where you can park at least half a dozen cars. With its cathedral style dormer windows, central bay window and attractive exterior the property exudes kerb appeal and a warm and friendly ambience. This feeling continues once you walk into the hall with its natural stone flooring that flows through into the breakfast area and kitchen with its handmade pine units, inset Aga and adjacent utility room.

The breakfast area opens up to the stunning ‘all- year-round’ conservatory that not only incorporates very large seating and dining areas as well as access to the large block paved terrace but also includes an amazing koi carp pond that continues into the garden. For anyone who enjoys entertaining there is a large formal dining room and a spacious elegant sitting room with a delightful ornamental cast iron surround fireplace. There is also the good sized study with a built in desk, drawers and shelving as well as a downstairs cloakroom.

Off the spacious galleried landing on the first floor you will find a family bathroom with a corner bath, separate shower and built in cupboards and three double bedrooms including one with fitted wardrobes and a storage cupboard, another with double aspect windows and the attractive main bedroom. This includes a plethora of fitted bedroom furniture as well as a contemporary en-suite with underfloor heating and a triple sized walk in shower. From the landing there is an archway to the stairs up to the second floor where there are two double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and dormer windows plus a shower room.

The easy-to-maintain and secluded garden includes large block paved patio areas surrounding the pond. There is a pathway around the lawn and shrub borders to the double wood gates leading to the front of the property and the separate brick built building. This is currently being used for outdoor storage but has lighting, heating and electrics so could easily be converted into an office. outside is the stunning glass covered leisure complex that includes a large gym area with a therapy plunge pool, a substantial built in Jacuzzi, a specially designed waterproof and remote controlled TV with Sky and a Crestron surround audio system as well as a sauna, a steam room and a cloakroom.

There are solar thermal panels heating the therapy pool and jacuzzi plus panels on the roof of the property, delivering free hot water to the house for at least nine months of the year. Solar PV generates free electricity with the excess being exported to the grid at the highest tariff yielding a minimum of £1800.00 per annum. This tariff is index linked and will continue for seventeen more years. There is an automatic system feeding the koi carp every hour from five in the morning until nine at night, this combines with a highly sophisticated filtration system to keep the koi in crystal clear water. The property is alarmed, has fast broadband for easy communication which in turn supports the latest CCTV system allowing viewing of all areas via mobile telephone from anywhere in the world, in addition the entrance gates are not only opened from the house but from anywhere using a mobile device.

“We have lived here for the past 21 years and have thoroughly enjoyed bringing up our family in this lovely house. However with the family having grown up we feel it is time to downsize and move to somewhere a little smaller. Over the years we have built the conservatory where we spend much of our time as well as the gym which has been a real delight for friends and family alike. While the kitchen and breakfast room have been everything we wanted we do appreciate that new owners might want something a little different and it would be quite easy to reconfigure the kitchen by incorporating part of the very large garage.

Folkestone is a delightful seaside town and we live on a very quiet road but it is only a short walk to the station and to the town centre with its plethora of restaurants, individual shops including those in the Creative Quarter and the famous Leas. Here you can walk along the vast green space at the top of the cliff overlooking the sea across to France or stroll down to the beach and the award winning Lower Leas Coastal Park. For sporting enthusiasts there is the Folkestone Sports Centre as well as the rugby, football, cricket and hockey clubs while golfing aficionados can play at Sene Valley or Etchinghill. The town includes two excellent grammar schools as well as The Sandgate Primary School, rated Outstanding by Ofsted”.
