** MARKETED BY USHERS ** Ushers are pleased to offer this showpiece of the Chantry Farm gated development which was completed in 2009 by Willton Homes. The Farmhouse is a unique 4 bedroom detached freehold property nestled in landscaped grounds. With 2 front doors it offers the new owner the potential to reconfigure to create a self-contained 1-bedroom annex in one of the new-build wings (STPP).
The original stone farmhouse dating from 1890 was renovated and extended to provide 4 bedrooms (one en-suite), a large kitchen/diner, lounge, study, utility, bathroom, cloakroom, double garage and walled front and rear gardens. The original part of the house is built in stone with the extensions and rear clad in dark stained wood over brick/block. A tiled pitched roof covers the entire structure. There is gas central heating, double-glazed painted real wood windows and fitted carpets throughout the house (except kitchen/diner has real stone floor and utility has tiled floor).
The rural town of Gillingham has direct rail links to London (Waterloo) and Exeter, is only 4 miles from the A303, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is a Waitrose and local library within 5 minutes' walk. The high street is 3 minutes' walk away and the train station is 10 minutes' walk. There are also good primary schools and secondary school within walking distance. Viewing by appointment only. Exclusive to Ushers.
