Property Flirt!

Ready to play? This cool, contemporary family home is in an idyllic rural location just outside a buzzing town, and easy commute to London. So can you guess the price?

What we have here for today’s viewing pleasure is the sensational six-bedroom detached family home, Highfield House. Ideally positioned in the desirable village of Kingston, approximately 6 miles from the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury which benefits from High Speed rail services to London.

Location-wise it’s in the perfect position – situated in The Elham Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Kingston lies approximately 6 miles to the South East of Canterbury.

The village is within close proximity to Barham Downs and offers various local amenities including the Kingston Barn village hall, 14th Century Church and popular pub, The Black Robin.

You’ve also got nearby Barham with a village store and post office, a C of E primary school, and The Duke of Cumberland, a highly regarded gastro pub/restaurant and hotel. Broome Park Golf Club is also close by, featuring an excellent 18 hole golf course set around a magnificent Grade I listed mansion house.

This super stylish home, on The Street, in Kingston, ticks all the boxes for a family home that works for you – while maintaining a LOT of wow factor.

The house totals approximately 2989 sq ft (278 sq m) and has been designed with both style and function in equal measure, providing spacious, light filled rooms aplenty (there’s a lot of glass looking over those stunning views.)

Highfield House has been created by Kapra Developments – a property design and development company based in Kent specialising in the construction of unique architectural buildings. They make beautiful homes that work for the individual needs of their clients – and are as stylish as they are practical.

You’ve got open-plan living accommodation arranged over three floors to include an entrance hall, sitting room, open-plan kitchen/dining room, utility room and a study. Let’s let the photos do the talking.

Glide elegantly up the impressive spiral staircase, which rises to the first and second floors – over which you’ll find six double bedrooms and four bathrooms, three of which are en-suite, thank you very much.

The principal bedroom suite also benefits from a dressing room and a balcony with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

The interior is beautifully presented and luxuriously appointed with high specification kitchen and bathroom fittings and under floor heating.

Externally, the generous rear garden incorporates a natural stone terrace and benefits from approved planning consent for a swimming pool and garden room. A smartly paved driveway provides ample off road parking and includes a charging point for electric vehicles.

More clues? The nearby Cathedral City of Canterbury offers theatres, cultural and leisure amenities, as well as benefiting from excellent public and state schools. For independents we have reviewed you’ve got Kent College Junior School, Canterbury, Kent College Senior School, Canterbury, Junior King’s Canterbury, The King’s School, Canterbury, St Edmund’s Nursery, Pre-Prep and Junior School and St Edmund’s Senior School. All exceptional schools with outstanding reputations – you really are spoilt for choice around here.

Canterbury also boasts the facilities of a major shopping centre enjoying a range of mainstream retail outlets as well as many individual and designer shops.

The high speed rail link (Javelin Service) from Canterbury West station provides frequent services to London St Pancras with a journey time of approximately 54 mins and the Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton is approximately 13 miles distant providing links to Europe. The A299 is also easily accessible offering access to the A2/M2 leading to the channel ports and subsequent motorway network.

This house has it all folks – bucket loads of style, function – and location. But enough, already! That really is waaay too many clues! Got a price in mind? Clickety-click here to see if you are right.
