Property description

Available by auction. Guide price £850,000-£860,000. An imaginative entrepreneurial approach is invited, to maximise the full potential and flexibility this exciting project offers. This substantial, extended property, built as a family home in 1864, subsequently used as offices is currently set out as residential accommodation for school employees. Situated on a large walled and fenced plot on Maidstone Road, facing Albert Road and backing onto Baker Street, there is a great opportunity to further extend the current building, re-develop for apartments and investigate the possibility of a building plot at the end of the garden, all subject to the usual permissions required. Set out with twelve rooms, four kitchens and bathrooms, four basement rooms, gas central heating and mixture of sash and double glazed windows, the property still retains many Victorian features. The large rear garden, mainly lawned with mature trees, shrub beds and patio area, has double gates from Baker Street opening onto a private driveway. There are two wooden sheds and a block built shed. Located in a sought after residential area of Rochester, within a half mile of the historic high street with its range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, Castle and Cathedral. The mainline station has hi-speed services to London St Pancras, as well as services to London Victoria, Cannon Street, Charing Cross and Ebbsfleet International. There are schools for all ages closeby, both primary and grammar, along with St Andrews and Kings schools. There are also good road links via the A2, M2, M20 and M25 to London, Maidstone, Canterbury, Bluewater Shopping Centre and Gatwick Airport. Do not miss this great opportunity, call to make an appointment to view.
