Seller Insight I am proud to have owned and lived in one of Pentland Homes properties as our family home. We have always felt it was a delightful development and the location is excellent. We are only five minutes from Canterbury city centre and you can always walk into the city alongside the river with a pathway to the West Gate. You can walk to the beautiful village of Chilham in about 15 minutes for the nearest mainline station and the village of Chartham with its ancient church, village hall, playing fields with an outdoor gym, convenience store, post office and pubs are not far away. The children can walk to the Chartham primary school where they have been doing very well while the bus stop at the end of the road provides easy access to the excellent state and private secondary schools in Canterbury.�*

Step inside 12 Kingfisher Place

Kingfisher Place is a truly delightful development of attractive and contemporary properties surrounding a charming lake and countryside. It was built by renowned developers Pentland Homes to a very high standard about five years ago on the rural outskirts of Chartham, yet is only a moment away from the main road and the bus stop for Ashford and Canterbury. Number 12 is a particularly fine example as it has been immaculately maintained and considerably expanded and adapted by the owner to provide a top quality modern family home and includes some very special features. These include a well insulated playroom built inside part of the double garage that is removable if required and a stunning orangery with its large skylight, five bi-folding doors to the garden and a wide archway through to the well fitted kitchen/dining room. This has created a large open plan living space where the family spend much of their time. The first thing you notice as you walk through the front door is the wide and elegant hallway with its beautiful porcelain tiles giving you a lovely sense of space. There is a cloakroom and a good sized office near the entrance that is very useful if you have business visitors as they don’t need to go through the rest of the house. The large lounge is light and bright with full height windows and patio doors to the sheltered terrace for the summer time and a modern log burner you can sit round in the winter. There is also a door through to the orangery, providing a lovely flowing feeling through the living areas of the ground floor – ideal for both family living and for entertaining. The contemporary kitchen will delight anyone who enjoys catering. It includes a five ring gas hob, built in double oven, integrated microwave, large fridge freezer, dishwasher and a central island with a built in wine cooler as well as plenty of room for a table and chairs. There is also a fitted utility room with access to the garden. Upstairs off the spacious landing there is a large contemporary family bathroom with a bath and separate double shower as well as four double bedrooms offering panoramic views across the garden and the lake, including the master with its patio doors to a glass Juliette balcony, built in sliding wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Outside there is a plenty on offer. The easy to maintain garden includes the patio, lawn and shrub borders but beyond that is an additional garden area and a paddock that can continue to be rented at £100 per month. The extra garden currently includes a decked terrace with a summer house and Wendy house as well as a playground area on maintenance free wood chipping beyond. The paddock is an ideal size if you have a horse mad youngster who wants a pony or you might like to raise a few sheep or even alpacas but alternatively it is a lovely spot for the kids to run around and exercise the dog. At the front of the house there is parking for three cars and the other part of the garage is currently in use as a gym. To enhance the development even further is a communal playground and a meadow interspersed with trees for the use of all the residents and it provides an excellent opportunity to develop a community spirit with summer barbecues and parties and to know that children can safely use the facilities.
