Ville of Dunkirk was built by the current owner to his own specification in conjunction with award winning local architect On Architecture. Styled on a traditional Kentish barn, the house is anything but traditional. On offer is a stunning contemporary weather-boarded home.

The ground floor is mostly given over to a large open plan living area with full-height windows flooding the house with light. The well fitted kitchen has a range wall and base units, including a central island with breakfast bar; there is a range of Siemens appliances, including three ovens. This space opens directly onto the rear garden. A well-proportioned study, a second reception room and a fitted utility room complete the accommodation at this level.

A wood and glass staircase rises to a spacious galleried landing with numerous sky lanterns overlooking the sitting and dining area below. Arranged off the landing are a stunning principal bedroom suite with bespoke fitted dressing room and en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room), a bespoke fitted dressing room/bedroom 4, and a family bathroom with modern freestanding slipper bath.

The property benefits from a smart home Crestron AV system, Lutron lighting and blinds and a state of the art CCTV and alarm system. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with radiators to the upper floor, and air conditioning to the principal bedroom, kitchen/dining/sitting room, study, reception room, garage and gym.

Ville of Dunkirk is located in Upper Harbledown on the fringes of the Blean Woods Nature Reserve. Harbledown village’s High Street, with its good range of day-to-day amenities including local shopping and public houses, is a conservation area with many colloquial buildings to both sides of a sharp climb towards the city of Canterbury. The property is superbly situated to enjoy all that Canterbury has to offer, including a variety of shopping, educational, sporting and cultural amenities.

Canterbury has two mainline stations with services to London, with the High Speed rail service from Canterbury West to London St Pancras taking less than an hour. The nearby A2 provides direct access to the motorway network. The area has good access to the Continent.

The property is approached through a sliding electronic gate over a resin driveway, offering parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to the integral triple garage, bordered by an area of gently-sloping lawn and a paved terrace.

The enclosed rear garden features a spacious paved terrace with a bespoke covered kitchen area with pizza oven, barbecue and outdoor refrigerator, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining; there is also a waterproof television and full outdoor surround sound speaker system. The adjoining space is laid with 3G artificial grass. The whole is screened by mature trees in the adjoining Blean Woods Nature Reserve.

Double gates from the drive lead to a further large parking area bordered by a large outbuilding incorporating a double garage with sink and an extensive 28 ft gym with French doors to the garden, together with a separate useful garden office with sink and cloakroom.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed: obtained from Ofcom on December 22, 2021

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on December 22, 2021

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services

    Energy Performance data and Internal floor area: obtained on January 29, 2018 from The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 or the Home Report if in relation to a residential property in Scotland.
