The Halt is a stunning contemporary home superbly located in a tranquil setting between Canterbury and Whitstable. The house, been remodelled and extended in recent years resulting in an exceptionally stylish and unexpected family home. The property is situated along the original route of the ‘Crab and Winkle’ railway line which once ran between Whitstable and Canterbury and when opened in 1830 was one of the first railways lines in Britain. The Halt takes its name from the location of the Blean & Tyler Hill Halt. The pond to the front is understood to be one of the former Winding ponds, originally supplying water for the winding engines that pulled the trains uphill. A lovely avenue of trees to one boundary hints at the path of the old railway. The centre piece of the house is an impressive sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and a magnificent glass wall framing the views over the grounds and across the pond. Large sliding doors open to a deck and a glass staircase leads to the mezzanine first floor, which provides a further sitting area and study, with skylights above. Walnut floors flow though to a dual aspect dining room, with two sets of French doors opening onto the gardens. A sleek kitchen sits between these spacious reception spaces and, lit from above through an internal skylight, is fitted with modern, bespoke units, a central island and integrated appliances. There are four generous double bedrooms, including the superb master bedroom, again with vaulted ceilings and having a walk-in wardrobe and a large en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom is also en-suite and there is a family bathroom. The excellent detached annexe provides further generous, light and airy accommodation, with an open-plan sitting and dining area and kitchen. There is also a double bedroom and a shower room, making it ideal as a guest suite, or perhaps as a holiday let or air bnb.
The Halt is accessed via wrought-iron gates, with a gravel driveway leading to a large parking area, the house and the double garage. A deck is positioned overlooking the pond. The house is surrounded by rolling lawns, which blend into meadows extending far beyond the house. The annexe is set a good distance away from the house giving both, privacy. Set well within its grounds and surrounded by delightful countryside and mature woodland, the house enjoys a special environment so conveniently located.
