A generously extended and beautifully presented detached bungalow, situated on a quiet country lane close to Blean Woods, yet within easy walking distance to the bustling village of Boughton-under-Blean.
Applegarth was built during the 1960’s, but has undergone a significant programme of renovation and improvement in recent years, culminating in a highly flexible family home with an extremely stylish and well appointed modern interior.
The property is entered via a UPVC double glazed front door, which opens into an entrance hall with striking Victorian style floor tiles.
To the front of the property, there is a superb master suite, with a large double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a well appointed en suite bathroom. This has been fitted with a traditionally styled white suite, including a double ended bath with a rainfall shower over it, Metro style wall tiles and ceramic wood effect floor tiles.
There are two further bedrooms, both of which are generously proportioned double rooms. Also to the front of the property is the family bathroom. This is equally well appointed, with a contemporary white suite including a Jacuzzi bath with a shower over it, ceramic wall tiles and luxurious marble floor tiles.
The living space is to the rear of the property and consists of a lovely sitting room with a wood burning stove and double glazed French doors with New England style shutters which open onto the rear garden, a dining area with a tall, vaulted ceiling and an impressive kitchen which also has double glazed French doors to the garden. All three living spaces are open plan and connect with one another.
The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with an excellent range of traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around stunning quartz work surfaces, stainless steel integrated appliances and rich oak flooring, which continues into the dining room.
The whole property is tastefully decorated throughout, with a superb quality of finish and an understated sense of luxury and style.
The property enjoys a wide frontage, with a block paved driveway which provides off road parking for several cars. A secure side gate leads to an ‘L’ shaped garden which wraps around the rear and the side of the bungalow. This is mainly laid to lawn, with several mature trees which help provide a good degree of privacy.
There is a useful timber shed, power points and a superb area of raised decking just off the kitchen and living room, which provides an ideal space for dining ‘al fresco’.
Applegarth is situated on a quiet, country lane, surrounded by orchards and lovely countryside on the edge of the popular village of Dunkirk. It is approximately three miles east of Faversham and five miles west of Canterbury and is situated next to Blean Woods, which are a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Dunkirk has a new village hall, two garden centres, a farm shop and the Red Lion public house. Its neighbouring village of Boughton-under-Blean has a long main street with a post office, village store, churches, a well regarded primary school, hairdressers and several pubs and restaurants. The villages are very closely linked and share a real sense of community.
Dunkirk is close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network. There is a regular bus service through the village to Canterbury and Faversham and the railway stations at both Canterbury and Faversham offer a regular service to London Victoria and Charing Cross as well as a high speed link to London St Pancras.
The nearby town of Faversham has a thriving High Street with a variety of independent traders as well as well known brands and three times a week the town has a bustling market. The town has several well regarded primary schools as well as the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and good leisure facilities including an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, a cinema and a large recreation ground.
The cathedral city of Canterbury offers an even wider array of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including a selection of state and private schools, three universities, the White Friars Shopping Centre, the Marlowe theatre and two hospitals.
