Medway House is a beautifully proportioned mid-century house, located at the edge of the village of Wigmore, Kent. Taking its name from the sole owners who commissioned the build in 1958, the property is peppered with original architectural details which have been exceptionally well-preserved throughout. The internal living space currently spans 2,205 sqft but Medway House holds great potential for extension through the second floor; a full-height loft space spans the width and length of the plan, that with the correct permissions, would add extensive additional living space.
The house has a characterful frontage of white brick and stained timber-cladding, with a series of raised flower beds and a wonderful stilted porchway introducing the primary entrance. The layout revolves around the original open-tread staircase, which stands proud of the walls to form a focal-point through the central plan. A triple-height wall of glazing frames the stairwell whilst allowing light to flood across both floors.
The generous reception hall provides access to the four principal living areas on the ground floor, with an exceptionally well-preserved, herringbone-parquet floor of solid teak running underfoot. To the immediate left of the entrance sits a bright study or fifth bedroom. The split-level dining room is framed by three large panels of glazing; a beautifully light space, with bi-fold doors leading out to a private garden to the rear.
The outdoor space is laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and trees creating seclusion from the neighbouring playing fields. A modern kitchen adjoins the dining room, with in-built appliances and a breakfast bar. Two large picture windows provide good light to both ends of the living room which spans the entire length of the ground floor and has a simple log-burner, wood store and a wall of bespoke bookcases.
Four double bedrooms occupy the first floor, each retaining the original lime-washed floorboards. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and an additional family bathroom sits adjacent and the expansive loft space is accessible from the landing.
Wigmore is a quiet village, five miles to the south of Chatham and six miles from Rochester. For local amenities Hampstead Valley has a local shopping centre, just a few minutes from Medway House. An extensive selection of primary, secondary and grammar schools also lie within the catchment area.
Gillingham train station is around 13 minute’s drive from Medway House and offers excellent rail connections to London, with St Pancras reachable in 45 minutes. The house is also very well positioned for easy access to the M2 motorway.
