A striking and imposing detached residence, with over 5000 sq. ft of accommodation, including a detached guest annexe and separate games wing, set within a highly secluded gated plot of 0.37 acres in this prestigious road in Sittingbourne. The property originally dates back to the 1920's and has retained several original features, however it has since been extensively remodelled and generously extended by its current owners, transforming it into a stunning contemporary family home, with a modern and stylish interior and excellent leisure facilities, set across three floors.

To the right of the entrance hall, there is a reception room with a decorative stone fireplace and a lovely bay window.
A set of oak barn-style sliding doors lead from the entrance hall into a vast, open plan living space to the rear of the house. Whilst open plan, this impressive space is divided into several clearly defined areas, including a homely sitting area, with a feature faux fireplace and attractive exposed wood-clad feature walls, a dining area, a family area and a stunning kitchen/breakfast area, with bi-folding doors which open onto the rear garden.
The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent array of modern units, set around quartz work surfaces, a range of integrated appliances, twin sinks and a quartz-topped island/breakfast bar. There is a study to the front of the house, whilst an inner hallway leads to a grand dining room, a utility room, a walk-in pantry and a cloakroom/WC.
On the first floor, a large central landing leads to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. This has been fitted with a modern and stylish white suite, including a huge, double-ended two person bath. The principal suite is a magnificent, dual aspect room, which occupies the entire west wing of the house and is set across two floors. It contains a bedroom area, a sitting area and a beautiful en-suite with a free-standing slipper bath. Completing this spectacular suite, a staircase rises from the main bedroom to a vast, second floor dressing room.
