3 bedroom detached house for sale

Heath Road, Barming, Kent


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set in around three quarters of an acre of private gardens, this immaculately maintained three-bedroom detached house was designed by the current owners and completed in 1973.

Approached along a private drive serving three houses, the single-storey design is fronted by a hard-standing with space for a number of cars. Entrance is beneath a porch to a lateral entrance hall. There is a reception room to the right, with clerestory windows that let in light from the front of the house, and large sliding doors that open to the garden. The dining room, slightly raised from the reception area, is clad in a wonderfully rich rosewood.

Towards the middle of the house is the kitchen, with its immaculately kept Wrighton units, that also has access to the rear garden. Beyond the kitchen are two bedrooms that open onto a conservatory / playroom, a family bathroom, a second reception room and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This reception room is arranged around a sunken seating area with built-in furniture, lighting and a working fireplace. The master bedroom is in a raised section that can be separated from the reception area by a pair of beautifully crafted sliding doors.

The exceptional gardens that surround the house were first landscaped by garden designer George Whiteleg. The patio area runs into a gently undulating lawn that is circled by mature flowerbeds. The area beyond the flowerbeds becomes a little less formal and eventually gives way to mature trees and a bluebell wood. In an area next to the building there’s a formal pond overhung by acers. To the side of the house there's a pergola covered with ramblers and a brick-built moon gate that frames a view of the garden. There is a double garage and greenhouse located on the hard-standing at the front of the house.

The house is well located in the village of Barming, just to the west of Maidstone. The River Medway and Oaken Woods are a short walk away. There are four popular grammar schools in the area, including Oakwood Park Grammar and Sutton Valence School. There is a mainline station in Barming, that runs direct services to London Victoria in around 59 minutes, or to Maidstone in around five minutes. The M20 is close by.
