This fabulous four-bedroom family home in Hollingbourne is situated on Pilgrim's Way in a beautiful rural setting with stunning views across the Kent downs. The property sits on a generous 0.4 acre plot of land, is very spacious inside and immaculately presented, and has potential to be extended or convert the garage into an annex. It comprises a large reception room, a lovely conservatory, a kitchen, a utility room, a large entrance hall, four double bedrooms, three bathrooms including master ensuite, a double garage, a substantial driveway, a summer house, and a greenhouse.
Inside through the main front door is the spacious entrance hall which comes with some built-in storage; to the left is a grand main living area which forms an L-Shape providing you with a lounge area and another area off the kitchen ideal for use as a dining room. The space is bright and warm and comes with oak parquet wood block flooring which also extends through to the entrance hall. Off the back of here are sliding doors into a huge conservatory that feels almost like an aviary in its design, and drinks in an abundance of natural light. The panoramic views of the grounds are rich in greenery and can be enjoyed from here. To the side of the main living area is a charming kitchen which has a rustic feel and is also a good size. Off here is your utility room which provides access out to the garden, and to the front of the property. To the right of the entrance hall are two of the four double bedrooms and a downstairs shower room. The bedrooms are both a good size, and one comes with built-in storage. The downstairs shower is nicely decorated with mosaic tiles and a chrome towel radiator.
Upstairs via the very nice two-stage staircase with rich dark wood bannister and a window with views out over the garden, is the family bathroom and the two remaining double bedrooms. The bedroom to the left as you arrive on the spacious landing is a nice size double and filled with natural light. To the front of the property is the family bathroom which has a bath with shower and has picturesque views across the front garden and surrounding fields. The master bedroom on your right is a luxurious bright and airy suite, with fitted wardrobes, drawers, bedside tables, and a dressing table. This room also benefits from some amazing views across the garden and surrounding countryside. It comes with a master ensuite shower which is a good size bathroom, and comes with two large storage areas, and views to the side of the property.
Outside the lovely garden is expansive and beautifully maintained, with luscious green lawns, stone patios, footpaths, a decking area with a greenhouse, and is an absolute joy to behold. Perfect for families with all that space for running around and playing, ideal for mum and dad too for enjoying a BBQ and a glass of wine on a summers evening, and for the keen gardeners amongst us this is total heaven. There is also a small plot at the very rear of the property, ideal for growing your own fruit and vegetables.
