This is a property that is crammed full of possibilities, one that, with solar panels installed, provides a financial return as well as making a wonderful home.
We love homes that surprise and this is most definitely one that does.
It has presence from the road, one that still doesn't quite manage to prepare you for all that you find behind the front door and each time we stop to think of the ways this home can work for people, well the possibilities seem endless.
Stepping into the hallway, the first thing that strikes you are the pairs of double doors to either side, thrown open they are a wonderful greeting to both the living and dining rooms. Stand in either one and gaze across, it's easy to picture family life here, gatherings, parties, Christmas, especially Christmas with the wood burner alight!
Straight away you begin to get a feel of how this home can work. A ground floor bedroom with en suite shower could make a great teenager’s room, a space for visiting guests or a possible room to let out. It is all the more useful when you realise there are still four bedrooms upstairs and that's not all, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
The kitchen is a wonderful space, a breakfast bar makes this a real family room and one for entertaining, slide back the bi-fold doors to open the room up to the garden, again visions of parties will float before you.
'We fostered children and the layout here was perfect for us!' our clients explained when we first spoke with them.
With a ground floor bathroom as well as that en-suite bedroom on the ground floor, plus a super first floor shower room and the en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom, 'that was the thing I fell in love with!' we are told, that en-suite bathroom is delightful and a big factor in why this home is perfect for anyone with children or people who regularly have visitors.
The main home just works so well, you have lots of parking at the front with the in-out driveway, a garage too adds storage, it could take a car but we are all the same it seems, it becomes a store room or workshop most often.
The rear garden is enclosed, easy to enjoy, an ‘astro turf’ has been laid, again perfect with kids and works really well with dogs. The raised deck is a perfect spot to sit and relax and the other delightful addition is the studio. It was here when the owners arrived and provides more options for life. Perfect for a business from home, it could perhaps be an Air B'n'B destination, it may just become a 'man cave' or the kids den, something for you to decide.
There's lots to draw you here and not just within the home but nearby too.
This is an incredibly practical place to be. Step out of the garden gate and within a few steps you are heading onto a wonderful sandy beach, one that has made some TV appearances through the years.
A parade of shops provides everyday necessities from a general store to pharmacy, hairdressers and Fish and Chip shop. The iconic 1930's built Jolly Fisherman pub stands at the convergence of Dunes Road, Coast Drive and The Parade.
In the opposite direction from the beach is beautiful countryside, you can walk to New Romney and even to Dungeness if the fancy takes you. Fresh water lakes appear from amongst the surrounding flora and behind them the intriguing 'Sound Mirrors' stand, built between first and second world wars, the advent of radar made them obsolete and they stand here as a fascinating insight into our past and technological developments.
You'll find them as you walk out past Greatstone Primary school.
There's lots to consider here, much to discover and on top of all of it, this is a home that can put money in your pocket, and not just from letting a room or two, photo voltaic cells on the roof provide electricity to the home and an income through the year.Get in touch if you like this property.
