Property description

An abundance of original Victorian features remain in this substantial period home, built by a respected local builder, a larger house on a bigger plot than those they built in King Edward Road. It is a comfortable home that has ample space and for a growing family. It can be lived in and maintained as it is or offers great further potential. The house is set on a large walled enclosed plot offering surprisingly secluded and mature gardens. Set over four floors, this six bedroomed house has four reception rooms, a recently constructed 33’ hardwood conservatory and a self-contained lower level annexe and cellar rooms. The design offers great flexibility in its use, ideal for a home and work living, the lower level annexe could be used for a relative, office space for working from home or re-incorporating into the main house. There is a private front driveway for four or five cars, which is a rare bonus for this central location. The house lies within a conservation area and sits well with historic landmarks including the Cathedral, Chertsey Castle Gate, Rochester castle and the restored, vibrant High Street with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Rochester is well known for its association with Charles Dickens and hosts a variety of cultural festivals during the year, such as Sweeps, Dickensian Christmas and Castle gardens concerts. The attractive High Street is lined with a selection of period buildings dating from Georgian and Victorian times. There are a range of schools, private and state, including Kings School, St Andrews School, Rochester Girls Grammar School and the Mathematical school all within walking distance. The new mainline station is within a few minutes’ walk and has excellent services to London Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Victoria and a hi-speed service to Ebbsfleet (18min), Stratford and St Pancras (38 min). There are also excellent road links via the A2, M2, M20 and M25 to Maidstone, Canterbury, London, Bluewater shopping centre, Ebbsfleet International Station and Gatwick Airport.
