This beautifully presented, individually designed high specification home, offering accommodation of just over 3,700 square feet in total, has a lovely established modern country feel. The exterior reflects traditional Kentish vernacular design and sits comfortably within its plot, while inside, the flexible accommodation on offer, has been given an inviting contemporary feel, with stylish, light, well-proportioned rooms that have been designed with modern, comfortable living in mind. Outside, the park like gardens that surround the house are a haven for children, dogs, gardeners and nature lovers alike and offer the potential for a swimming pool, tennis / pickle ball court or outbuildings if desired, subject of course to the necessary permissions. This property also benefits from a paddock to the front which amongst other things, could make the most beautiful orchard, wildlife sanctuary or wild flower area for pollinators. The property is approached through electronically operated security gates onto a shared driveway which gives access to all four homes on this small exclusive development. A sizeable driveway at the front of the house provides ample parking and there is also a detached double garage with EV charging Pod Point.
The front door, with full height windows either side, opens into a large entrance hall which forms the focal point from which all the other reception rooms flow. A light coloured engineered oak floor gives a welcoming feel while keeping the space bright and airy. Oak staircase to first floor with built-in cupboard below. Room for free-standing furniture. NB: Underfloor heating throughout ground floor.
Comprises concealed cistern WC and wash hand basin with mixer tap and storage under.

Oaklands is set well back and is approached through a main gated secure access onto a shared driveway which in turn leads to a private driveway to the front of the property, where there is parking for several cars in front of the double garage. The garage, which is detached, has two electrically operated roller doors, power and lighting, and a charging Point for an electric vehicle. The paddock which sits to the front of the property, provides a good amount of screening from the road and could be the perfect place for wild life and pollinators to thrive.
The rest of the garden which is level and benefits from the sun all day, surrounds the house on three sides, and is unusually large for any property this close to town. At present, it has been laid to lawn with a paved patio, but there is huge potential for landscaping and it would certainly accommodate a swimming pool, tennis / pickle ball court or other outbuildings if desired, subject of course to any necessary consents. A gate at the bottom of the garden leads through to what was the old railway line and this property also has access to ancient woodland to the rear. NB: We understand that the four properties on the development jointly own and have access to these shared areas, further details of which can be obtained from our office.
