5 Underwood Close is a modern 4/5 bedroom detached house (originally 5 bedrooms), improved and updated by the current owners and is now presented to an exceptionally high standard throughout. Located close to the Chaucer Hospital, it has easy access to both Canterbury and the A2 and benefits from off-road parking to the front, garaging and a south facing garden to the rear. It offers a spacious, vibrant and light filled family home on the outskirts of the City.
Inside, the property is well arranged, with good size rooms. There have been some thoughtful changes to the property to improve the space in the kitchen/dining area with double doors opening on to the garden. The kitchen itself includes a wine fridge, space for American fridge freezer and breakfast bar, along with room for a dining table to seat eight people.
Included on the first floor there is a lovely principal bedroom suite which has been extended (in to what was originally bedroom five) to now provide a spacious dressing room with fitted cupboards and a super ensuite bathroom which includes a large walk-in shower with double shower heads.
The property benefits from the installation of a water softener, air-conditioning to the living room, underfloor heating to the two bathrooms upstairs, broadband network cabling, double glazing with some window shutters, fully fitted office (bedroom four) and energy-efficient lighting.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The property and garage with electric roller shutter door are accessed via a block paved parking area to the front. There is gated access to one side which leads to the rear walled garden. This is south facing and is part decked and with raised beds and lawn. The current owners have also added extra height to the wall with some trellising, which will provide added privacy when covered with climbers. There is also a recently added patio area and hard standing with a garden shed.
