Description Displaying proud Victorian architecture with elevations of Flemish bond brick and a symmetrical arrangement of evenly sized windows under a shallow pitch, slate tiled roof. The property has all the traits typical of the period with tall ceilings and well proportioned rooms, and has retained a number of original features. The internal layout has been altered in recent years to accommodate studio apartments and let on a multiple occupancy basis. There has been decorative modernisation carried out and in this layout, the property comprises nine bedrooms with three communal reception areas, two kitchens and three bathrooms. With relatively simple modification the property could be returned to a single dwelling and would provide impressive family accommodation which depending on design would grant a ground floor of drawing room, dining room, breakfast room, office, morning room, kitchen and cloakroom with up to nine bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor.

Outside Outside, the house is approached from the road to a wide area of parking. The entrance to the house is from the parking which is at the side of the house. Behind the house is a yard with some useful brick stores connecting the approach with the grounds behind. The land leads to the side of the house, backing open fields, with mature shrubs lining the boundary and given over to rough mown grass. In all the grounds amount to about 1.5acres or thereabouts.

Location The property is between the villages of Kingsnorth and Mersham, on the edge of the modern suburb of Bridgefield, in a semi-rural setting, amoung a small hamlet of converted farmbuildings. It is a particularly accessible setting about 4 miles South East of central Ashford. Both villages have well regarded primary schools, public houses and a post office shop. The A2070 is accessed in under a mile and links with Junction 10 of the motorway being about 4 miles away and there is also a large Tesco supermarket here. Ashford has a wide selection of schools including a number of reputable grammar schools, and Independent education from Ashford School. Rail services to London are best joined at Ashford International Station which is driven in about 4 miles, providing regular services to London and the high speed service to London St Pancras with journey times from 38 minutes.

Opportunity The size and scope of opportunity on offer with this property makes it ideal for buyers seeking a sizeable family home or a multiple occupancy letting investment and we therefore confidently recommend it.
