Cedar House is a striking newly built home in a pleasing modern design with cedar and rendered walls under a flat roof. The imaginative three storey architecture incorporates a lower ground floor with doors and windows to a sunken courtyard, and the second floor has a 360 degree walk-around terrace from which to enjoy the fine views. The property is designed to be extremely energy efficient with high levels of insulation and underfloor heating by air source heat pump.

The property is approached from the road through impressive timber gates to a large gravel drive with central olive tree. There is access to the triple garage, built in a pleasing style to complement the house.

The front door opens to the staircase hall which opens to the near 30’ kitchen/dining room with stylish arrangement of base and wall units, and incorporating an impressive range of AEG appliances. Two sets of bi-fold doors open to the balcony, and there is a utility room adjacent. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms complete the ground floor.

The lower ground floor has a spacious reception room with bi-fold doors to the sunken terrace, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a 36’ cinema/gym room. In all you have six bedrooms.

Cedar House lies in an area of attractive countryside just under a mile to the south of the traditional village of Stockbury, which retains its village inn and church as well as a farm shop and butchers selling a wide range of local produce together with newspapers, wines, beers and spirits. Nearby Bredgar also has an inn, farm shop and well-regarded primary school.

The A249 is within easy reach, giving fast access to the M2 and M20 motorways. The county town of Maidstone lies to the south west, and Sittingbourne to the north east. Both provide a full range of shops and schools, including grammar schools. There are rail services to London from Sittingbourne from 58 minutes.

Lawns dotted with cherry trees lie to the side of the drive, from where there is access to the rear and the heated swimming pool with decking surround. The adjacent pool house is a substantial building now with planning permission for use as annexe. Avaiable behind and to the side of the gardens are grass paddocks.
