Property Information

Tucked away at the end of a pleasant cul-de-sac and occupying a large garden plot is this detached chalet style home which is presented to the market for the first time since being built in 1965.
The owners purchased the property off-plan, naturally attracted to its unusually large plot for the area and its excellent sense of privacy, peace and quiet.
The ground floor presents a lounge/diner which opens via patio doors onto a substantial paved sun terrace which overlooks the garden. The third bedroom is currently used a separate dining room but makes a good double bedroom. A kitchen and modern shower room completed the ground floor.
The spacious first floor provides two double bedrooms and a family bathroom whilst a store room provides a natural route for a dormer extension into the loft that would then offer a fourth bedroom (subject to necessary consents being obtained).
Moving outside, you will find a large, sunny rear garden which basks in sunshine throughout the day. There is ample space each side of the property which may offer potential for extension with the necessary consents being obtained.
A huge block paved driveway provides extensive off-road parking for multiple vehicles.
All in all, a unique opportunity situated within a popular and very quiet location of Herne.

The property is situated within a desirable location on the fringes of the historic village of Herne with the Church Of St. Martins dating back to the 14th century and the fast 'up-and-coming' seaside town of Herne Bay. Herne Bay town centre with its ever popular seafront, supermarkets, independent boutiques and mainstream outlets is 2 miles away where you can also find a leisure centre and a sailing club. The fashionable harbour town of Whitstable is 5.5 miles away offering shopping, educational and leisure amenities including sailing, water sports and bird watching, as well as the seafood restaurants for which it has become renowned. The Cathedral city of Canterbury is 7 miles away with its theatre and cultural amenities, as well as benefiting from excellent public and state schools. The City also boasts the facilities of a major shopping centre enjoying a range of mainstream retail outlets as well as many individual shops. Excellent transport links are nearby with Herne Bay mainline train station just 2.5 miles away providing direct links to London Victoria in approximately 88 minutes and London St Pancras in approximately 86 minutes.
