First Floor: 3 double bedrooms and family bathroom. N.B. The house offers scope to extend the accommodation subject to consents and permissions. The position of the property is ideal for enjoying the ‘outdoor life’ surrounded by nature reserves and vineyards and being on the North Downs close to the pilgrims way there is excellent walking on the doorstep. For those with equestrian interests there is a livery yard at Kits Coty around one mile away offering an opportunity to keep your horse close to home and with direct riding out onto the north downs.
There is also a good selection of golf courses nearby and a variety of excellent local schools to choose from as well as easy access to local shops and services at nearby Aylesford village. For commuting both the M2 and M20 motorways are close by & the Ebbsfleet High Speed Rail Link & Rochester railway station are in convenient driving distance.

SITUATION & AREA AWARENESS: The property is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and close to a Nature Reserve, near to the Blue Bell Hill hamlet 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 as to Europe.
