Superbly convenient family home: walk to Primary school; buses to Secondary school; and handy for Ashford International to commute.
3 Church Close is a bright, comfortable four-bedroom detached property that offers almost 3,000 sq. ft of well thought out and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. A pillared, covered porch opens to the central reception hall, which in turn leads to the kitchen/family room, dining and sitting rooms, as well as to the useful cloakroom. The front-facing sitting room provides a welcoming space, with a curved bay and sash style windows, decorative cornicing and a feature fireplace.
The large open plan kitchen flowing into the family area creates a sociable and pleasing space, with the kitchen benefitting from an array of wall and base unit cabinetry, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar. The family area has a sizeable brick-built inglenook fireplace with log-burning stove as well as direct access via double French doors onto the tranquil enclosed rear terrace. A practical utility space, one of the two family bathrooms and a formal dining room adjoin, alongside a further hallway with access to the integrated double garages.
The first floor is also well-arranged for modern family living. As well as three generous double bedrooms, (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom, there is an extremely generous principal bedroom suite which is currently arranged to provide a large bedroom and adjacent study with a range of bespoke storage and book shelving; the suite benefits from double doors onto the considerable roof terrace. There is also a dressing room and shower room. This space could be used as a separate annexe, if desired.
The property lies within a very quiet cul-de-sac of four similar properties with no passing traffic. The village primary school is within striking distance and buses for the secondary schools in Ashford stop at the end of the cul-de-sac.
The attractive garden is private and enclosed, encircled by an arrangement of established mature trees and shrubbery. The property enjoys an ample section of lush level lawn and a paved terrace, which makes use of the sunny southerly aspect and is perfect for dining al fresco. A variety of well-maintained climbing plants adorn the home.
The roof terrace enjoys an elevated position in which to take in the outdoors and look over the treetops. The front-facing aspect is carefully manicured, featuring a section of level lawn alongside the wide tarmac driveway, which leads up to the double brick-built garages, offering ample parking for several vehicles.
3 Church Close is centrally located in Mersham, a highly desirable and accessible village to the south-east of Ashford. The property encapsulates classic village life being within walking distance of the popular primary school and The Farriers Arms pub. Ashford itself has well regarded independent and grammar schools and a good array of town centre shops. Together, Ashford and Canterbury provide a complete range of recreational, cultural and shopping facilities including theatres, cinemas and the well-regarded Ashford Designer Outlet.
Mersham is well situated for commuting to London whilst being near enough to the Channel Tunnel to drive to France for lunch. The nearby M20 (Junction 10) gives good road access, and Ashford International offers High Speed rail services to London St Pancras from around 36 minutes.
Head south-east on the M20, taking the exit towards Hastings (A2070) and take the second exit at the roundabout to join the A20 at Hythe Road. Turn right and continue onto the Street, Bower Road, Church Road, turn left onto Church Close, where you will find the property.Read all
