Property description

In a fantastic rural setting on the edge of Rochester, this five double bedroomed detached Victorian farmhouse is set in secluded mature grounds of 1½ -2 acres in a hamlet in the River Medway Valley. Built, we understand, for the Bourne family, the dairy farmers and milk producers, the house was completed in the 1860’s. The current owners have overseen a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and extension to create a stunning home. The kitchen/breakfast room extension has views across the garden to the North Downs. This lovely light room has extensive bespoke fittings, Falcon range cooker, granite worktops, oak worktop centre island and feature windows, doors and arched fanlight opening onto the side patio. There are three reception rooms, a study, utility room and shower room on the ground floor, the principal bedroom with dressing area and an en-suite shower room, four further double bedrooms, plus family bathroom to the first floor. The quality finish throughout the house is complemented by original period features and more recent multi-fuel stoves. The extensive gardens include formal lawns with mature specimen trees, a sunken garden, an extensive patio beside the house, orchards and woodland, ideal for families, entertaining and garden enthusiasts. There is a large detached double garage and ample private parking. This rural idyll is only a quarter mile from Borstal with its local shops and highly rated primary school. Rochester centre with its Castle, Cathedral, High Street independent shops, cafes, restaurants and mainline station is approximately 2 miles. The 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 in Rochester, primary, secondary, grammar, and the independent St Andrew’s, Rochester Independent College and King’s 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.
