*WELL PRESENTED FAMILY HOME IN GREAT LOCATION!*
Miles and Barr are delighted to bring to the market this detached house along Headcorn Drive. In recent years the owners incorporated the garage which was originally detached, by extending sideways and then above the garage. This has created a wider garage downstairs and then added another bedroom and second living space, as suited the owners needs at the time. The home is clean, tidy and the owners are non-smokers.
The ground floor comprises of an entrance hall with understairs cupboard. There is a dining room on the right hand side. As you head further along the hall it splits in a 'T' with a cloakroom ahead. On the left hand side is the spacious and light lounge with large windows at the front and then the conservatory at the rear. This is a wonderful space to relax with doors opening out in to the garden. Back to the hall and on the right hand side is the kitchen with services for all the appliances needed. Finally on the downstairs is the large garage which is accessed from the patio and during the works to extend this had the electrics all fully bought up to standard.
On the first floor is a landing with access to the loft. Left of the stairs you have the second bedroom which is a very comfortable double bedroom with fitted cupboard. There is also the fourth bedroom which is currently used as an office, and again this has a cupboard. There is then the master bedroom, family bathroom and airing cupboard in the original house, before you walk through to the extension with a second shower room, third bedroom and then second living area/fifth bedroom depending on requirements.
Externally the front offers a driveway for 3/4 cars on the same level as the house and with a front lawn and decking area extending around the side of the house all the way to the generous rear garden. This features a lovely patio and seating area, with a couple of steps up to the lawn, with fruit trees and a shed, backing onto woodland.
The property is situated within the city of Canterbury, being within easy access of the High Street and all its amenities. These include an excellent modern shopping centre, the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University and other colleges, together with an excellent choice of schools in both the public and private sectors.
