Full description

The property is located within the sought after area known as The Quarries. In the 19th Century when the quarry was active there were many shops and a large population of quarry workers. Ragstone paths were laid down through the beautiful Loose Valley and were used to transport the stone to the Medway. Many of the local properties benefitted by the local stone and you can admire their facades whilst driving through this picturesque part of Kent.


St Augustines Chapel was originally built around 1874 for educational use for the families of the local quarry workers. Around 1981 the Chapel was sympathetically converted into a family home, retaining a wealth of period features including the bell tower, stone font and poor box mounted in the wall.


The Chapel enjoys double glazed leaded windows throughout and mainly varnished
original oak flooring to the ground floor. From the inner hall, the grand brick arch, housing the solid wooden door with its ornate ironmongery, leads you in to the grand hall. This elegant area with sweeping stairs to first floor, provides an ideal entertaining space enhanced when the double doors are opened to the magnificent lounge with its handsome chimney breast mirrored by tall windows and housing a wood burner with bi-fold doors. This striking room has a charming vaulted ceiling together with galleried landing. Onward from the lounge is the kitchen with fitted cream wall and floor units, integrated wine chiller, dishwasher, microwave and 2 fridges as well as a Gas Range Master Classic 110. This room benefits from underfloor heating and led lights to underside of wall and base of floor units with door to patio and garden.


The conservatory, off the entrance hall, has underfloor heating and elegant decorative etched detailing to some of the glazed panels, doors open to the patio area and gardens.


The 3 bedrooms are all on the first floor with the Master having an en-suite bathroom with separate shower, white WC and sink. Bedroom 2 is rather quirky with steps to a mezzanine area providing an additional space for either a single bed or a den. Bedroom 3 has light flooding through a large velux window, the family shower room is at the top of the stairs, complimented with a modern suite of white sink, WC and shower unit with large rose head with electric towel rail.

The property is approached over a block paved parking area which leads to the garage. There is parking for 2 cars off road together with 1 in the garage. The south facing garden is  ccessed from the kitchen, conservatory or from the main entrance hall. This quiet and secluded garden is south facing having mature borders of flowers and shrubs, mainly lawn with a useful garden shed tucked away.



The garage can be accessed from the garden as well as double doors from the front, the original font and alter can be found toward the back of the garage together with an area plumbed for a washing machine.
