Brambledown is a well constructed five bedroom detached house, built in 2001, with elevations that are of brick, beneath a tile roof. The rooms are all well proportioned, being light and well presented and the property sits in a garden of over 1.2 acres with a range of useful outbuildings.
Inside, the generous accommodation of nearly 3,000 square feet is arranged over two floors and has been well maintained by the current owners, who had the property built. Features include; 20mm thick oak wide board floors, double glazing and coving. The kitchen / breakfast room is a well arranged double aspect room comprising maple units with tiled floor and marble worktops, with a matching island unit, fitted dishwasher, fridge / freezer and Range Master. Other features include a fireplace and triple aspect conservatory to the drawing room, master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite with roll-top bath.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The property offers an excellent range of outbuildings, including a detached double garage with office to the rear (with suitable foundations to allow construction of a second floor), together with a range of buildings comprising a stable, workshop, mower store, potting shed and garden shed. These all could, subject to the requisite planning consents being obtained, provide useful additional rooms to the main accommodation.
Brambledown is approached via a pair of five-bar gates with a gravel in and out driveway, leading to the hard standing area and garaging. A concrete apron leads to the rear of the property and the aforementioned outbuildings, together with a large garden which is principally laid to lawn and enjoys views over the surrounding fields and out towards the estuary. A secondary lane to the side forms part of the property and could be used as an additional or new access, this is subject to a right of way for the neighbouring property.
The property is situated off Uplees Road, lying adjacent to the Uplees and Oare marshes, which are managed by the Kent Trust for Nature Conservation and are home to thousands of wild fowl and waders in winter, together with some very special plants in the summer. As such, it also lies on the Saxon Shore Way, a long distance walking route named after the line of historic fortifications that defended the Kent coast at the end of the Roman era, which in turn leads to the nature reserve. Everyday facilities are offered by the market town of Faversham, with its shops, schools and excellent communications. The City of Canterbury lies about 12 miles away, with its excellent amenities. These include an excellent modern shopping centre, two mainline railway stations, the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church College and other colleges and an excellent choice of schools in both the public and private sectors.
SPORT AND LOCAL AMENITIES
Sporting and recreational opportunities include: stunning coastal walks along the Saxon Shore Way, golf at Boughton and Belmont in Faversham, sailing at Whitstable Yacht Club and Herne Bay and county cricket at Canterbury. In addition, the recently refurbished Marlowe Theatre, the spectacular Beaney House of Art & Knowledge and the Gulbenkian (theatre, cinema and café bar) at the University of Kent, all provide excellent City entertainment.
The property is well placed for access onto J6 of the M2, which in turn provides straight forward road access to the coastal towns of Thanet, the county town of Maidstone and London. Faversham railway station (2.5 miles), Canterbury West (12.2 miles) and Ashford International (17.2 miles) all offer the High Speed Rail to London (St Pancras 68, 56 and 38 mins respectively). Ashford also offers services to the continent via Eurostar (Paris 1 hr 52 mins) or via Eurotunnel at Cheriton (28.5 miles, Calais 35 mins).
From J7 of the M2, take the A2 (London Road) to Faversham. Drive through Faversham, passing Ospringe on the left and at the first roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Western Link (B2045). Continue on this road for 1.3 miles and turn left on to The Street and continue forward into Uplees Road. Follow this road for 1 mile and turn right into a track, beside Uplees House. Brambledown will be found on the left hand side after a short distance, being set back from the lane and accessed by a pair of five-bar gates.
