A stunning detached house in a particularly sought after West End location, moments from Folkestone West mainline railway station, within walking distance of Sandgate Primary School, boys and girls grammar schools and the famous Leas Promenade. The property has undergone an extensive and carefully planned programme of repair, refurbishment and extension with meticulous attention having been paid to every detail. The result is exceptional, the house is quite simply stunning and offers thoughtfully reconfigured accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions, totalling circa 3070 square feet, which has been designed to compliment a modern lifestyle.

The scene is set as soon as you step foot on the expansive bound resin driveway and walk to the handsome façade which has benefited from being re-rendered in a crisp self-coloured finish complimenting the replacement roof, the original oak door opens to an impressive entrance hall with Amtico flooring with underfloor heating which extends throughout most of the ground floor. Double doors open from here to a magnificent kitchen/dining/living space incorporating a beautifully fitted kitchen which is flooded with light from the full wall of sliding double glazed doors which unite the space with the garden, there is a connecting door to the play room/study which returns to the entrance hall. The dual aspect sitting room also opens to the garden and enjoys a cosy wood burning stove. There is also a boot room, utility room and cloakroom. Over the first and second floors are five double bedrooms, the principal room with a beautiful en-suite bathroom, and a family bathroom. There is plumbing in place for an en-suite to bedroom four. The house occupies a particularly generous plot with a wide frontage of approximately 60ft to Bodenham Road and a generous driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles and access to the integral garage. The rear garden measures some 150 feet in length, benefits from a westerly aspect, large paved terrace and a generous expanse of lawn.
