A charming 2 bedroom converted chapel offering a wealth of character features and spacious living accommodation, set in the heart of Kemsing village.

Description

6 The Cleves forms part of a converted building of mixed ages which was formerly The Rectory to the neighbouring village church. The building was converted in 2011 to a high specification and is made up of seven individual homes. 6 The Cleves offers well presented and proportioned accommodation with charming features. Of particular note is the wonderful living area with a vaulted ceiling which was formerly the chapel to the main house. It also benefits from a delightful south-facing courtyard garden and communal grounds. The Cleves is located on a private lane, set back from the centre of the village.

The front door opens to the spacious hallway, which has useful fitted storage cupboards and a skylight offering additional light. There is also access to the boiler.

Stone steps lead to the impressive open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which creates a wonderful area for living and entertaining, together with views over the courtyard garden and communal garden beyond.

The stylish kitchen area has a tiled floor and is fitted with a comprehensive range of modern wall and base cupboards including a matching island unit. Quartz worktops incorporate a 1½ bowl stainless steel sink and extends over the island unit to form a breakfast bar. Siemens appliances include a hob with extractor over, integrated microwave, oven, fridge freezer and a washing machine.

The wonderful double aspect sitting/dining area was formerly the chapel to the main house and has multi pane French windows which lead to the rear patio. To the side there is an impressive clerestory triple lancet window, which is multi-light traceried. Also of note is the painted wood panelled vaulted ceiling.

The well-proportioned master bedroom has an outlook to the front. It is served by a modern en suite shower room comprising a shower, sink, W.C. and vertical heated towel rail.

There is one further double bedroom, which features a vaulted ceiling with a skylight and an outlook to the front.

The stylish bathroom comprises a bath with drench head shower over, hand basin, W.C. and vertical heated towel rail.

To the rear of the property is a charming south-facing courtyard garden, which extends around the side of the property and is ideal for al fresco dining. This area is enclosed by close boarded fencing to the sides providing privacy, a clipped privet hedge and a wooden gate provides access to the communal gardens at the rear of the property.

The south-facing communal gardens offer an expanse of lawn, a variety of mature trees and shrub beds, and total approximately 0.7 acres. There is also a pathway leading to allocated parking spaces and a bin store.
