About 0.5 acres

Meadow Cottage is believed to date from the 1930s, and has the attractive architecture so prevalent at the time with mellow tile hung elevations and leaded light windows under a clay tile roof. The house has been well cared for by the last owners who lived here for over 40 years, and it is not hard to see why they stayed for so long. The charming appearance is complemented by beautiful secluded gardens and the location just a mile from the M2, yet down a leafy no through lane is excellent.

A really useful covered open porch opens to the staircase hall, and to the right is the drawing room. A really lovely bright and spacious room, triple aspect and with a brick fireplace. Doors lead to the conservatory with picture windows overlooking the garden. The sitting room and dining room face south, as does the kitchen fitted with range of white fronted cabinets. Adjacent are a utility room, boot room and separate boiler room.

An oak hand railed staircase rises to the first floor, with a comfortable master suite of bedroom, shower room and dressing room (which could be used as a further bedroom as it has a separate door to the landing. There is a further bedroom and bathroom, and stairs lead to the second floor with two further bedrooms and excellent storage.

The property is approached over a quiet lane,
off the exclusive Ridgeway, in the popular
village of Shorne, where local facilities include
a church, local shops, 2 pubs, community
hall, nursery, primary school and Gads Hill
independent school.

Nearby the Medway towns, including Rochester,
provide an excellent range of shops, cultural
and leisure activities. Dominated by the
Norman cathedral and castle, Rochester has
some excellent schools, including Kings School
Rochester and state grammar schools.

Transport communications are excellent with
links to the A2/M2/M20/M25 nearby. Ebbsfleet
International station offers an 18 minute journey
time into London St Pancras, and Eurostar
trains to Paris, Brussels and other European
destinations. The Bluewater Shopping Centre is
also within easy reach

The property is approached through brick pillars and over a paved drive for parking and access to the two separate garages, with power and light. There are gardens to the north, hedged and with lawn, shrubs and trees.

The main garden is to the rear, with a wonderful paved terrace running the length of the south side. Steps lead to the main lawn, with privacy ensured by high hedges. To the side of the house is a green house.
