Front, Sandling Road, Saltwood, CT21

This handsome Edwardian house occupies a generous plot within the heart of the sought after village of Saltwood. The handsome façade conceals an interior with a wealth of original detail throughout the beautifully proportioned accommodation which is tastefully presented in a style which is sympathetic to the period of the house.

The accommodation, which totals in the region of 1930 square feet, comprises an impressive reception hall leading to the study which is open plan to the sitting room with its cosy open fire and marble surround. The spaces are united by the same Karndean parquet effect flooring which extends into the open plan dining room. The large and well fitted kitchen opens onto the garden and leads to an adjoining breakfast room. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor comprises three very comfortable bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, and a shower room. There is considerable scope to further extend the property if additional space is required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The large gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property having been thoughtfully planted for year round interest and offering a delightfully secluded environment in which to relax and entertain.

NB: Planning approval has been granted to extend the house to provide additional accommodation including a fourth bedroom.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.
