This very striking, newly completed five-bedroom detached family home enjoys a sought after location on the edge of the village of Southfleet in the beautiful North Kent countryside. Before we built this house there were offices on the land, but I’ve always thought that this would be such a lovely place to build a family home’ says the vendor. The surroundings are very picturesque and the village, which is just a few minutes up the road, boasts a primary school, a cosy pub and also a really friendly community. The local transport links are very good so it’s an ideal spot for a commuter, and places such as nearby Gravesend have all the shops and amenities you could possibly wish for.
Clad in solid teak with a gorgeous Penrith slate roof, externally this beautiful home has been designed to blend seamlessly with its rural surroundings, however internally it’s very much a modern home designed for modern living. Light and space is definitely a theme that flows throughout the building and the layout has been cleverly designed to incorporate large open areas that will be great for entertaining, but equally there are more intimate spaces where you can shut the doors and create a more cosy feel. We’ve also added concrete floors and underfloor heating both upstairs and down so there’s a good level of soundproofing and the house as a whole can be kept at an ambient temperature, and the solar panels on the roof will make it much more energy efficient. This is without doubt a very stylish house, but at the end of the day it has been designed to be a very warm and welcoming home.
The garden is another really lovely feature, continues the vendor. It’s south facing, completely private and it’s been fully landscaped so the new owners won’t need to do a thing, apart from enjoy spending time in it. We’ve created a huge patio terrace, raised beds and a large area of lawn that will be ideal for children, and the bi-folding doors that lead from the main living areas create an almost seamless connection between inside and out.
Location Southfleet is a delightful semi-rural village offering local primary school, church, public house and farm shop. Ideally situated within easy access of the village of Longfield and Gravesend town centre providing further shopping recreational and educational facilities including mainline railway stations to London Victoria and Charing Cross respectively. The A2 and M25 motorways together with Bluewater, the Channel Ports and Ebbsfleet International station providing a 20 minute link to London St Pancras are also within easy access.
Directions From Fine & Country North West Kent proceed down Ash Road towards Longfield, at the mini roundabout turn right onto the Main Road. Once past the three schools on the right hand side take the second turning left into New Barn Road. Follow the road down, on entering the village of Southfleet, turn first left into Red Street opposite the pond where the property will be found a short way along on the left hand side.
Seller Insight Favourite room: My particular favourite is the huge reception hall. It features an entrance that’s almost like the cart door of an old barn, which is fully glazed, floor to ceiling, and the hall itself is double height and incorporates the main staircase that sweeps up to a beautiful galleried landing. It’s a very impressive space and a lovely introduction to the fabulous sense of light and space that flows throughout the entire house.
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: This is a place where the owners will be able to enjoy something of everything. They will have access to some of the most beautiful countryside, a great selection of shops, excellent schools and the superb local transport links make it relatively easy to get just about anywhere.
Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): The open-plan kitchen, dining and living space is another standout room and the real heart of this home. We’ve installed top-of-the-range sleek, modern units and all mod cons so not only is it a very functional part of the house, but it’s also really stylish.
What they’ll miss most / why they are leaving: There are just so many things that set this house apart,” says the vendor. The quality of the design and build, the superb finish, this fantastic location… It’s one of a kind and I’ve no doubt that the new owners are going to love living here.
