This historic house dates from the late 18th Century with late 19th Century alterations and is Listed Grade II of architectural and historic interest. There are stock brick elevations in Flemish bond with stone coping and a hipped roof. Internally there is a fine staircase with mahogany handrail and some of the rooms have fine period cornices.

Internally this spacious house has some wonderful rooms with elegant proportions. The stylish kitchen at the rear has modern cabinets, and the raised ceiling pitch and large windows create a great ambience. The three principal reception rooms are on the ground floor, accessed from the staircase hall.

The lower ground floor has a guest bedroom suite at the rear, the remainder of the floor being storerooms and it is considered this area may be suitable for alteration (subject to the necessary consents) if further living accommodation is required. There are five further bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room arranged on the first and second floor.

Set a little behind the main house is a single storey brick annexe, built in the late 20th Century. This has three bedrooms and two shower rooms and is ideal as secondary accommodation or for bed and breakfast use.

The property lies in a Georgian part of the ancient city of Rochester, and there are views from the upper floors of the Norman castle and cathedral. The city centre is probably best known for its associations with Charles Dickens and the attractive high street is lined with a selection of Georgian and Victorian period houses

Rochester is known for specialist shopping and an active cultural programme. There is a good range of schools in both the independent and state sectors, including The King's School and separate boys' and girls' grammar schools. The M2 (Junction 1) gives access to the motorway network and also links with the Bluewater shopping centre and Ebbsfleet International station. There are good commuter services from the new Rochester station with journey times to London St Pancras from 36 minutes and other services to Victoria, Cannon Street, London Bridge and Charing Cross.

The property is reached up stone steps leading to the front door, with vehicular access to the rear. There are seven parking spaces and a large garage with storage shed adjacent. Steps lead up to the garden, which is partly walled and, in the main, paved. It is unusual to have such extensive parking and outside space for a city centre property.
