This fabulous three bedroomed semi-detached period home is set in Roebuck Road, one of the most sought after roads in central Rochester. The current owner has overseen a major programme of renovation to the house over recent years, creating a home of high quality and generous accommodation. Set over four levels the many remaining period features are complemented by the newly designed layout and modern fittings. A particular feature being the l-shaped open plan kitchen/dining/living room on the lower ground floor, which has underfloor heating and double glazed doors opening onto the paved terrace and garden. The bespoke extensively fitted kitchen, with silestone worktops and breakfast bar is a chef’s delight. The l-shaped lounge has two period fireplaces one open and one set up for a multifuel stove, a modern shower room, an en-suite bathroom, complementing period features such as sash windows and window shutters, fireplaces, exposed floorboards and doors. The house is set on a large plot with off road parking to the front and a walled rear garden of approx. 110’ mainly lawned with sheds and workshop. There is further potential to extend to the side to incorporate further living accommodation and garaging, subject to the usual permissions. Situated within a few hundred yards of the private schools of Kings and St Andrews, local state primary schools, the Vines Park, Rochester Cathedral, Castle and historic High Street with its independent shops, cafes, restaurants and mainline station with hi-speed links to London.
