Virtual viewing available: A stylish family home, with consent to create an annexe
44 The Foreland has been imaginatively remodelled to create a stylish, contemporary home offering bright and comfortable family accommodation. The house and is set in a large and private plot within a quiet cul-de-sac location, exceptionally well located to access the amenities of the city.
The front door opens to an airy reception hall which in turn opens out to a stunning and sociable living area. Though providing distinct sitting, dining and kitchen areas, the space is loosely open plan so as to provide the sort of sociable arrangement favoured for modern living. In addition, a further reception room provides a separate family room or playroom as desired.
The kitchen is neatly fitted with light units, a range cooker and island. Wooden flooring connects the ground floor, flowing from room to room creating a relaxed and calm environment. Wonderful full height picture windows and sliding doors flood the space with light and open to the garden. A useful utility room has a door leading outside.
A generous ground floor bedroom to the front of the house provides enormous flexibility and is served by a well-appointed shower room, where good accessibility has been taken into consideration.
To the first floor is the principal bedroom with an en suite shower room, together with two further bedrooms, both with pleasing aspects of the garden and countryside beyond, and an attractive family bathroom.
A gravelled driveway to the front provides a parking area, whilst a paved terrace to the rear makes the most of the sunny south-easterly position and provides a perfect spot for outdoor dining in the summer months. A neat area of decking sits adjacent to the kitchen/dining area. The generous garden is largely laid to level lawn, interspersed with established trees and shrubs.
In addition to the house the outbuildings offer further potential. A sizeable garden room sits to one side of the garden with a garage adjacent to the house. The garage has planning permission for conversion to an annexe to provide additional accommodation for guests, airBnB, or perhaps a home office, as desired (see Canterbury City Council planning ref: CA/19/10376).
The property is in the desirable South Canterbury area, close to the city centre, which offers an extensive range of leisure, cultural, shopping and sporting facilities, bars and restaurants, as well as the Marlowe Theatre. The cricket ground and hospital are within easy reach. There are a number of well-regarded schools in state and private sectors, including the Simon Langton grammar schools, The Kings School, St Edmunds and Kent College.
The road and rail links are both excellent, with the A2 and M2 (Junction 7) just a short drive away, providing easy access to the entire motorway network, central London and further afield. The surrounding countryside and pretty villages including Wingham, Littlebourne, Ickham and Wickhambreaux provide the perfect balance of city and countryside living.
High-Speed train services run from Canterbury West to London St Pancras in under an hour. The area has good access to the Continent.
From Canterbury: Leave the city centre on the Old Dover Road. At the traffic lights after the cricket ground, turn right onto Nackington Road (B2068). The Foreland is the first turning on the left; the property will be found at the far end on the rightRead all
