This beautifully presented three-bedroom house sits up along the Canterbury Road in Kennington. Some years ago an extension was added to the rear providing a utility room and much appreciated down stairs WC. Although there is no parking to the front of the house, there is a garage-en-bloc situated just a short walk away.
The ground floor accommodation comprises a porch which has been added giving a useful space to store coats and shoes before leading into the entrance hallway. The stairs lead from here to the first floor which doors also lead into the through lounge/dining room and kitchen. There is also a useful under stairs cupboard. The lounge/dining room enjoys a double aspect with a large bay window to the front, and window and door to the rear leading out to the garden. It is no understatement to say this house enjoys plenty of natural light.
A wood burning stove has also been fitted within the chimney in the lounge providing some extra warmth through the winter months.
A modern kitchen has been fitted, with the layout and design tweaked from the original, with the washing machine, fridge and freezer now located within the utility room, giving the kitchen space more cupboard space. There is also a dishwasher and a double electric oven, microwave oven and induction hob built-in.
Along with the appliances, there is another cupboard and worksurface space in the utility room, handy for keeping prepped food out the way. The ground floor WC leads from the utility room, as well as a door leading out to the garden. Both the utility room and WC feature underfloor heating.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The largest of the bedrooms faces the front and features a large bay window, much like the lounge downstairs, and also benefits from fitted wardrobes. Bedroom two faces the rear and also features a built-in cupboard. Unlike some houses of the age, the third bedroom is larger than expected, and comfortably accommodates a single bed and furniture, making for an ideal children's bedroom.
The family bathroom has also been updated and features a modern design; there is a bath with shower above, WC and basin, fully tiled walls and tiled floor with under floor heating.
The garden here really is lovely, having been meticulously cared for and looked after by the current owners. The lawn is impeccable and some quaint seating areas have been created too. A deck to one side provides a fantastic space for entertaining guests of enjoying a BBQ in the summer months. To the bottom of the garden is a lovely hidden secluded spot, perfect for sitting out of an evening around the fire pit or chimenea whilst off the back of the house is another quaint seating spot, perfect for morning coffee and breakfast.
There is access down the side of the house too leading back to the front.
Although there is no parking with the house, nor space to the front to park a car, there is a garage-en-bloc situated just a short walk away, and along the pathway there is space to park (unrestricted) at the bottom of Oakfield Road.
LOCATION Kennington, a highly sought after parish of Ashford, favoured for the connections available with the M20 motorway just a short drive away, and access into the Town Centre sits just to the north of Ashford itself. Kennington is also much sought after for the local schooling options, with plenty of choice on offer at both primary and junior levels. For older children, Ashford has a comprehensive choice of schooling including Grammar Schools.
Close-by to the house itself is Kennington Rugby Club, whilst a nice walk would be down to Conningbrook Lakes country park.
A local bus service operates offering links into the Town Centre and International Station.
