A quiet lane grants access to a driveway dressed in fine shingle which in-turn leads to a parking area to the front of the home, sufficient for up to seven vehicles.

A contemporary high specification bespoke Italian kitchen by Hub Kitchens of Chelsea, is supported by both formal and informal dining areas. A substantial triple aspect lounge to the rear of the home provides a relaxing, multifunction area in which to take in the stunning landscaped rear garden by means of the double and triple bi-folding doors, or to simply watch films, read/study.

Completed in 2014 and finished to exacting standards with state of the art inclusions that bring a fine measure of efficiency, convenience and ease of living.

Step Outside

Dual terrace areas, bisected by a stunning feature wall with a waterfall feeding an attractive koi carp pool, decorated with aquatic plants. Raised beds beyond brick retaining walls to the boundaries, prolifically stocked with a range of specimen trees, shrubberies, tall grasses, bamboo and herbaceous plants. A further and attractive feature wall to the west border provides a stunning backdrop to a hardwood seating area whilst stunning views can be taken in via steps leading up to the wrap around terrace which in-turn provides convenient access to the kitchen. Alternatively a balcony/viewing deck accessed via the fifth floor landing offer further means of taking in the stunning southerly across the valley.

Beech House falls under the parish of Barming, in a much sought after lane location on the fringes of the county town of Maidstone which has a variety of amenities including, shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and superb schooling for all ages. This area of Kent is renowned for its beautiful villages and countryside, yet is conveniently positioned for a surprisingly short commute to the Capital. The nearest train station with links to London lies approximately 1.8 miles distant and the M20 motorway network can be reached by car in approximately 10 minutes.

For families that may require educational facilities there are several state schools that provide for primary and secondary age children. Additionally, Maidstone also offers four grammar schools.
