Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial six bedroom semi-detached Victorian family home, situated in one of the most sought after locations in the semi-rural village of Charing. This striking property was built in 1893 by a local builder and forms one of four similar character semi-detached houses in this private road.

The property offers extremely versatile and flexible accommodation arranged over three floors, central of which is the grand hallway, staircase and first floor landing with its oak banister, newel posts and rails. There is an abundance of original character to be found throughout the property including high ceilings and feature fireplaces. The property benefits from gas fired central heating and mains drainage.

The extensive accommodation comprises entrance hall, study, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, downstairs cloakroom, conservatory/garden room, two separate staircases to the first floor, four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and two additional bedrooms on the second floor. Lovely views of the village, the Church and North Downs can be enjoyed from the rear of the second floors of the house.

Externally, the property enjoys private off road parking for several vehicles and a landscaped rear garden with pergola and Indian Sandstone patio area.

This private road is situated just off the centre of the village of Charing. The village sits between the foot of the North Downs with the Pilgrim's Way and the Green Sand Ridge, a rural area rich in farming, some 5.5 miles west of the larger market town of Ashford and 13 miles east of Maidstone. Ashford provides an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities along with out-of-town designer outlet shopping and all the major supermarkets including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda within easy reach by car.

Charing enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, restaurants, church, primary school and doctor's surgery. Transport links are well supported with a main line railway station in the village, providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International station which benefits from the High Speed 37 minute rail service to London St Pancras. Junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant and junction 8, some 8 miles distant, both providing direct access to London and the Kent coast.
