Situated in the semi-rural hamlet of Ottinge, Lea Orchard is an immaculately presented family house set in the middle of its plot and surrounded by attractive and mature gardens. The property features generous accommodation, ideal for a large or growing family. Generous reception rooms provide opportunities for flexible living, with internal double doors allowing the spaces to flow into one another.
The welcoming entrance hall leads through to the 27ft drawing room. Doors lead through to the bright breakfast room with a traditional wood-burner and French doors to the patio. The adjacent kitchen features classic Shaker-style units, a traditional central island and space for a large range cooker.
The good-sized dining/garden room benefits from two sets of French doors to the garden. A double-aspect sitting room and shower room are located at the front of the house and could be utilised as an annexe, if desired. A study and useful utility room are also located on the ground floor.
The spacious first floor master bedroom, with en suite bathroom and dressing area, has French doors opening to a large south-facing terrace with fine views over the garden - ideal for taking in the sunset. Three further good sized bedrooms are serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom. The current vendors have obtained full planning permission to add a first floor extension over the existing rear balcony under reference Y16/0951/SH on Folkestone and Hythe planning portal
The property benefits from a sizeable, gated drive which provides parking for a number of vehicles as well as access to a large oak framed cart shed. The front garden features a well-maintained lawn and both mature and young trees.
To the rear a generous area has been hard landscaped to provide several appealing patio spaces ideal for al fresco entertaining and relaxation. There is also an expanse of lawn bordered by mature trees, offering a pleasant woodland outlook. A stable block is currently used as a workshop and store. A chicken run and greenhouse also feature.
