Sandling Road, Saltwood, CT21 - £2,750,000

Dating to the 1930's, Minstead is a unique and handsome detached house of immense charm and character rarely available in the highly regarded village of Saltwood. The property enjoys an idyllic setting amidst mature grounds of around 3.2 acres and is approached via a long private driveway passing through the grounds to the house which stands towards the rear of the plot, around 360ft from the road. Minstead is approximately 400 metres from the centre of Saltwood village and a short walk to Sandling train station with access to Kings Cross St Pancras in 55 minutes, offering excellent links for the commuter. The current owners have conducted an exquisite, impressive and detailed programme of repair, refurbishment and extension which is largely completed to an exceptional standard with a few areas left for the purchasers to finish to their own tastes and requirements. The work completed to date is a triumph transforming the property into a home tailored to compliment a modern lifestyle with contemporary detailing which enhances and highlights the wealth of original features throughout the house. This house is an ideal family home offering versatility, comfort, luxury and connectivity.

The accommodation, which totals circa 8666 sq ft, comprises a beautiful reception hall leading to the stunning magazine featured and award nominated open plan kitchen/dining/living space with bespoke cabinetry from the renowned Collins Bespoke, walk-in pantry and adjoining utility room, a generous yet cosy sitting room with gas fire, family room and study. There are five double bedrooms in the main house: the principal room with an exceptional vaulted en-suite bathroom and dressing room, two further en-suites and a family bathroom. A significant addition to Minstead is the capacious indoor swimming pool and gym, these are areas requiring an element of completion but the materials required are largely included in the sale. The secluded grounds are a delight with wide expanses of lawn, mature trees and shrubs, a sweeping gravelled driveway providing ample parking and leading to the four berth garage which has the potential and full planning permission to create ancillary accommodation above.
