LOCATION Loose is a pretty and much sought after village situated some three miles south of the County town of Maidstone. Dating back to Saxon times, its main period of development came during the 19th century Industrial Revolution and centred on the Paper and Wool trades. Built in the deep sided Loose Valley which surrounds and closes in on the picturesque ragstone village on all sides, enjoying an interesting mix of both character old and new properties. There are some wonderful walks in the area, particularly along the Loose stream down the Loose Valley and up through Quarry Woods. The village has its own Post office/general store and the notable Chequers pub at the bottom of Old Loose Hill just 3 minutes walk away. Further shopping facilities can be found in nearby Coxheath and Headcorn. Maidstone is a short drive away and caters for all day-to-day shopping requirements with its variety of chain and individual retail outlets, banks and leisure facilities, pubs, fast food and restaurants galore. Also worth mentioning are the super Maidstone Symphony Orchestra concerts. For the commuter, trains run from Maidstone East into London Victoria and from Staplehurst into London Bridge, Waterloo East, Charing Cross and Cannon Street. The M20 is conveniently close and connects to the M25 and the rest of the motorway network; Folkestone and the Channel Tunnel are 45 minutes drive away. Kent is renowned for the quality, choice and commitment to excellence of its educational system in both the state and private sector. Noteworthy schools in the area include: Loose Primary School, The Cornwallis Academy, Coxheath and Boughton Monchelsea Primary Schools, Maidstone Girls and Boys Grammar Schools, Invicta Grammar and Sutton Valence Independent School. 

AGENT'S NOTES 'This picture perfect period cottage has a pretty brick facade with "Victorian" inspired pane windows, delightful gardens and a wooden picket fence. The garden to the rear are such that one could easily create interesting compartments for example, a raised kitchen garden or a herb garden. Perhaps a water feature or two, to complement the natural stream at the bottom of the garden. With the appropriate plants, shrubs and trees, you could attract even more birds, bees and butterflies to create your very own countryside haven.'
