Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive and versatile family house, with a separate annexe with potential for extension subject to PP, set in 1.9 acres of delightful grounds and backing onto orchards outside the popular village of Matfield, yet only two miles from Paddock Wood mainline station (West End and City within the hour)

Maxden dates from around 1933 with later additions, and the large detached annexe building dates from 1950, which also has the benefit of business permission. The owners have contacted the local authority who have advised that it would look favourably on the annexe being used as an independent dwelling and being substantially enlarged, subject to the necessary consents.

The house has painted rendered elevations under tiled roofs and has double glazed replacement windows. There is an extant planning consent for a conservatory.
