Here's a brilliant home, set over three floors, that makes life easy to live and is in a great location amidst glorious countryside.
When the owners bought this home new, nearly fourteen years ago, we doubt they imagined they would stay so long. Chatting to them about life here shows how a house becomes a home and how a step onto the ownership ladder can be more rewarding than expected.
They've loved life here, it has been a quiet place to come home to after a hard, stressful days’ work. There's beautiful countryside at almost every turn as you approach the area and indoors you are comfortably aware that there are no homes behind you, no windows or neighbours staring back at you, as you gaze out across the rear garden toward the field.
The townhouse has accommodation arranged over three floors and it works so well. A generous kitchen at the front means you can keep an eye out for guests arriving as you prepare dinner. The dining room looks out over the garden and it's easy to picture how it must look with the French doors thrown open. It works beautifully for those days when you have a barbecue or on a lovely warm evening when you want to relax over a meal and hear birdsong in the background.
The sitting room upstairs on the first floor provides a space that stays a proper living space. It delineates how you spend time and ensures that you remember to relax and make the most of hours spent here.
The first floor has a guest bedroom and the top floor a master bedroom with en suite, a third bedroom and a bathroom. There's plenty of storage space with wardrobes and cupboards on each floor.
The rear garden has a patio area, lawn and as we already mentioned, that all important feature, greenery and open space behind. It's a wonderful garden for busy people, plenty of room to enjoy but not so much that it becomes a burden to look after. getting that balance right is important and this is somewhere that you'll find yourself drawn to make use of.
To the front there is a garage and a parking space and the owners tell us there is always plenty of parking close by for visitors. Certainly, we parked right by the house with ease.
As for the area, well Chartham is on the edge of that beautiful city, Canterbury. History, shopping, sports and convenience, it's all there. Hi Speed train to St Pancras, road connections to London and the coast and of course you are close to Ashford and the International Station.
Chartham village centre has an historic church dating back to the thirteenth century. There is a train station with services to London Victoria and Charing Cross. All around the area are lovely village pubs, walking trails and delightful countryside.
This is definitely a home to consider and one that can make a happy home for a long time.Get in touch if you like this home.
