Rose Lane, Stelling Minnis, CT4
A beautifully presented detached house in a delightful position and, as the name suggests, it is located at one of the highest points of Derringstone Hill which lies on the outskirts of the sought after village of Barham.
This delightful property was designed by local renowned architect firm Clague and built for the present owners two years ago. It is beautifully presented throughout with fantastic full height vaulted ceilings and automatically operated Velux windows. It is decorated and finished to a high standard throughout.
You will immediately appreciate the light, which flows into the property from all angles. The bedrooms have full height, double aspect windows with high ceilings and Velux windows.
There is a modern and spacious open plan family/dining room with two sets of glazed doors opening onto a large patio area bringing the outdoors into the living area and providing a great space in the evenings with the concealed LED lights which operate automatically after dark. This is a great area to entertain and inside is the Danish wood burning stove for when a cosy feel is required.
As you enter the property you will do so through a large entrance hall, off which is a downstairs shower room and a walk in cupboard. Also off the hallway is a separate living room in which to enjoy some peace and quiet away from the open plan area. You then enter the family/dining room and the kitchen/breakfast area which is finished to a high specification with Quartz worktops, integrated Neff self cleaning oven and a seperate microwave/combination oven, plus an island with ceramic hob. The Leibherr fridge and freezer is included and the property has a water softener. Leading off the kitchen area is the utility room which has a door into the garage.
Upstairs you will take in the space and and light on the galleried landing which leads onto three double bedrooms, each of which has either an en-suite shower or a bathroom. A unique feature in the bedrooms are the sliding windows which glide back to make the most of the Juliette balconies, to take in some fresh air and appreciate the views,especially across the Elham valley and the vineyard slopes of the Simpsons Wine Estate.
The downstairs benefits from underfloor heating and there are radiators upstairs. All of the windows are sealed double glazed units of aluminium.
To the outside of the property there is ample off-road parking, which leads to an attached single garage with electrically operated up and over door.
The garden is a delight; an impressive space which is mainly laid to lawn, but interspersed with various shrubs. There are raised flower beds and a large paved patio area. This is a space perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun. In all, the plot is approximately just under a quarter of an acre.
The garage/workshop has a bifold door opening onto the rear garden, which would make a great versatile space for a home office and still give plenty of space for bike storage. A summerhouse also has power.
The property is situated on an imposing plot at the top of Derringstone Hill on the edge of the village of Barham.
Barham lies close to the North Downs Way in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
