The Property

Purplebricks are delighted to offer for sale Cream House, a stunning period property which boasts exceptionally large rooms offering oodles of comfortable living space as well as spectacular views over the neighbouring fields and countryside. The Village of Burham was the winner of the Best Village in Kent in 2008.

In this unique property any of the six large double bedrooms could instead be used as a study, games room, office or whatever you want it to be, and the large cellar is ripe for conversion into a gym, a bar, or even a cinema room.

The property is arranged over three floors and includes six large double bedrooms, three reception rooms with bi folding doors from the lounge into the dining/drawing room, fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room (with quality granite worktops and range cooker), two large bathrooms, utility room, cloakroom/wc and a large cellar as well as a boarded out loft.

The beautiful garden has a paved terrace, covered overhead by a mature grape vine leading onto a sizable lawn with beds along its length up to decking at the rear. At the back of the garden is a recently constructed double garage (electrically operated) which has internal stairs leading to an extensive upper floor.

Cream House traces its origins to 1883, when it was built as a general grocers to the village and continued to trade up to the 1980’s. With the neighbouring small C15th cottage partially attached at the ground floor level the main building was granted permission to convert to a house in 1984 and the current owners have subsequently renovated the building to what is now a beautifully shown and most handsome residence with many of the original features having been retained.
