Rare opportunity to live in this prime central Rochester location! A four bedroomed semi-detached Victorian home built in 1883 for Watts Charity, with separate annexe on the lower level, set in this attractive tree lined residential road. There are two receptions rooms, kitchen, four double bedrooms, a dressing room/potential en-suite or nursery, shower room, bathroom and toilet to the main part of the house with fully self-contained annexe on the lower ground floor. The owners have retained many original period features such as cast iron fireplaces - the reception rooms with marble surrounds, plaster cornice and ceiling roses, stained glass windows, stripped floorboards, staircases and much more. There is potential for the lower level accommodation to be incorporated into the main living space or for office space, ideal if working from home. A new roof was installed four years ago. There is a walled rear garden of approximately 100’ and off-road parking to the front for two cars. 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. There are also good access roads to the A2, M2 and M20. We recommend your internal viewing.
