Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in the 15th Century this property, which incorporates Cara Cottage, was originally built as a close studded, timber framed house. Further building phases in the 16th and 17th centuries has led to the splitting into the individual cottages as they are today. Given the historic importance of the property it plays a crucial and integral part of the fabric and heritage of Bearsted and is Grade II listed. The property retains many original period features including timber beams, fireplaces and original fenestration. 

Bearsted Green has a rich culture within the Kent area and is also host to many popular events such as Music on The Green, Bearsted Fayre and a regular farmers market. Locally there are many excellent restaurants and pubs along with local shops and the train station is also a short walk providing fast and frequent services to London. 

The house is set back from the road behind a pretty garden, which includes some excellent planting and design. On accessing the property through the characterful entrance door you are welcomed into the main reception room, which features a large inglenook fireplace with inset grate. The leaded window offers beautiful views looking onto Bearsted Green, there is the benefit of a large storage cupboard. Walking through the inner lobby you enter the second reception room, which has another large inglenook fireplace with inset grate, window to side aspect and stairs to the first floor accommodation and door to kitchen. The kitchen has fitted wall and base units, which incorporate an integrated oven and plumbing for washing machine. There is a window to the side and door to the exterior.  

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the main overlooking the green and incorporating inbuilt wardrobe. The second bedroom has access to an attic room, which may hold the possibility of conversion to an additional bedroom. A family bathroom is also located on the first floor, which currently has both his-and-hers wash hand basins and baths and a WC. The property has full gas central heating. 

To the exterior there is a small communal courtyard and access to a separate private good sized garden, which is walled and has established planting and lawn. A garage en-bloc is adjacent to the property and is accessed by a separate road.  

The property requires some attention and would benefit applicants that wish to enjoy the unique opportunity that this historical property offers but also wish to put their own stamp on.  

Bearsted is located approximately 2.9 miles from Maidstone town centre with its array of shops, bars and restaurants. Bearsted has excellent transport links with its own train station, with services to London, as well as Junction 7 & 8 for the M20 motorway network. 

The local primary schools are some of the best Maidstone have to offer. There is also a range of secondary schools in and around Maidstone easily accessed by bus routes.  

All of the sales team have visited the property so call to ask any questions.
