Description

A uniquely located detached property set in its own rural oasis of 3.8 acres (*TBV) of glorious landscaped grounds with adjoining pastureland nestled into the southern slope of the North Downs with stunning elevated valley views. A range of garden buildings at the location offer possibilities to replace or convert for other uses such as stabling with one outbuilding offering scope for conversion into ancillary accommodation (Subject to permissons). For those with keen equestrian interests there may also be scope to add a riding arena within the pastureland (subject to permissions).
The accommodation at this 3 bedroom house is generally well maintained but would benefit from updating and modernising offering an excellent 'blank canvas' for those seeking a rurally located home to 'make more of' also with opportunities to extend and add more bedrooms and receptions (subject to permissions)
Being located at the end of a ‘dead end lane’ and approached from a long private driveway the property enjoys a tucked away quiet setting offering ideal options if you enjoy 'the outdoor life' with numerous country walks, cycle trails and bridleways on the North Downs and Pilgrims way.
Though surrounded by protected countryside in the historic hamlet of Kits Coty there is easy access to local shops & services. Both the M2 and M20 motorways are close by & the Ebbsfleet High Speed Rail Link & Rochester railway station are in convenient driving distance. No Chain.

SITUATION & AREA AWARENESS: The property is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the historic Blue Bell Hill hamlet of Kits Coty also known as Kents’ little Stonehenge with ruins of two prehistoric burial chambers formerly covered by long earthen mounds and estimated to be some 6000 years old. For local shopping and amenities, the picturesque historic village of Aylesford is around 2 miles and is said to be one of the oldest continually occupied sites in England. It possesses a 14th century ragstone bridge which is probably one of the most photographed and painted landscape features in Kent and there is no mistaking the antiquity of the houses overlooking the river Medway on both sides of the bridge. The village is built around a square with a range of Public Houses including the smallest, and possibly the oldest pub thought to date back to 1106. In Aylesford's High Street is the splendid medieval Friary built by the Carmelites around the middle of the 13th century and restored in 1949. The Museum of Kent Life and Cobtree Manor Park and Golf Course are nearby and there are a range of sporting and leisure facilities in the County town of Maidstone. For road commuting there is easy access to the M2 and M20 motorways connecting to the M25 as well as fast rail commuting links to central London from nearby train stations in Maidstone, Rochester as well as Ebbsfleet International station which provides an 18 min. service into London St Pancras as well to Europe.
