The more you look around this wonderful home, the more you discover.
This select part of Hawksdown is a delightful discovery. Turn off the main road and it is almost unexpected, pass the gate by the entrance to this private road and a wonderful feeling embraces you. There's a softness and a maturity to the area. A delightful mix of styles shows that people have always chosen to build impressive homes here, there is elbow room between them and the look is a cared for one, in quiet surroundings.
This is a haven, somewhere to leave the worries of the world behind for a moment and focus on enjoying life with family and with friends.
A sense of space is evident again as you approach this particular home, its impressive frontage stretches out, and, as you look closer, it provides unexpected space either side. There's no sense of being crowded at all, that elbow room we already mentioned.
Once inside you'll find that this is somewhere you look and think, 'wow, there's everything here a family need, it's perfect'.
Homes are very personal aren't they, we all dream of what we want, as our clients did when they moved here. Nowhere truly is perfect to start with, we make tweaks to suit ourselves and they did just that when they bought.
For us, there are lots of wows here, our favourite is the open plan kitchen and dining room, it's much more than that, it is a real family space and used to be two separate rooms, whoever was cooking could feel left out of things.
See the room now and you'll find it hard to imagine being away from it in the rest of the house, the bifold doors open and that view over the garden, it gets you every time, a tangible draw to it.
'We were so pleased once we did it,' the owners told us, 'it's a room all our friends comment on and we're here in it so often as a family'.
As you walk around, you will see more opportunity, chances to add something of yourself. What if you wanted to extend? Go up into the loft space?
If it isn't already, it can become the perfect home, one that will grow with you and your family for the future.
As we said though, it's pretty special as it is, there really is such a lot of space.
Outside that space we mentioned, the elbow room, comes into its own. There's a double garage with plenty of parking in front. The rear garden stretches out, a proper place for a family, you'll eventually discover where a large trampoline is kept, out of sight, fun time for the kids. Elsewhere a play house and slide complex with swings sits nonchalantly and almost unnoticed in this sprawling garden space.
To the right-hand side, behind that double garage, is a large patio area and you can see how parties can be enjoyed with people and activities happening all around.
The landscaped garden has a small waterfall cascading into a pond, from that a man-made stream flows through trees and undergrowth to a second pond. It is a majestic garden that suits adults, pets and is a wonderful playground for the family's children.
There is no one behind you either, the view takes you across to Hawkshill Freedown, a Site of Nature Conservation Interest
We're told that a regular dog walk is out the back, across the little valley and over to the seafront. Standing on the Freedown it is lovely to gaze across and out to sea, the coastline stretching away to either side.
There are intangibles that make a home special, that make life special. Convenience and ease is a big part of being here. Head off in the opposite direction from the house and you can walk to Walmer station and catch a Hi-speed train to St Pancras.
There are some local shops, a pub and restaurant to visit around the corner, Walmer itself is easy to reach and then you are into the historic heart of Deal, a cluster of delightful buildings and narrow streets create the atmospheric charm that people love.
Step to the seafront and you can walk for miles, head to St Margaret’s southwards or to the Pier and Deal to the North.
There is glorious countryside to explore, history of the area to discover and a host of fun things to do and visit. Restaurants, pubs and landmarks complete the experience that is life here.Get in touch if you like this home.
