Tenure: Freehold

Abbey Gate House at 41 Swan Street is an exceptional Grade II Listed, Medieval residence with a beautiful Georgian façade. Occupying a prestigious town centre location with a total plot of approximately one third of an acre the property is steeped in history and once formed part of Brooke House overlooking the grounds of West Malling Abbey. There is lapsed planning for a 3 bedroom detached house to be built within the grounds.

Appointed over four levels this characterful family home has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment programme with no expense spared, to include, sympathetically replaced windows, a luxury family bathroom and a newly laid driveway. Whilst much of the property has been upgraded it still retains much of it's period charm with an abundance of wonderful features still on show, an inglenook and feature fireplaces, sash windows and exposed Ragstone walls to name but a few.

When stepping outside the well manicured walled garden which measures approximately 100ft is accessed via double wooden gates and beautifully hand crated double wrought iron gates. Mainly laid to lawn with a patio area and attractive pond feature to rear the garden displays a variety of well established trees to include a beautifully designed, handmade arched railing lined with Cherry, Plumb, Apple and Pear trees.

An extensive block paved driveway lined with Lime trees leads to a former carriage house that would make an ideal carport/garaging with a handy storage area to it's rear.

West Malling is a pretty market town and community with an historic church and Abbey and a variety of amenities to include boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, a country park, nearby leisure facilities and highly regarded primary schools. West Malling train station provides direct links to London and can be reached by foot from the property whilst the M20 motorway network is minutes away by car
