Unique opportunity to purchase this exquisite Colonial style residence set in 8 acres, 100 meters from Bearsted Village Green. Beautifully presented and bursting with character features. Originally built in 1902, thoroughly and loving refurbished over the last seven years by the present owners creating the stunning home we find today. The chance of finding that illusive combination of comfortable family home and acreage is a compelling reason to arrange an early viewing. The accommodation harks back to the Edwardian era with impressive fireplaces, internal door pedements, cornicing and ceiling roses. With many rooms enjoying double aspect windows, gaining the full benefit of the rolling vista's. The windows have been replaced by a specialist joiner, in hardwood, in keeping with the original design, double glazed which together with the bespoke kitchen by Mounts Hill and the sumptuously fitted bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom, create a feeling of opulence throughout the house. Complemented by Karndean and Amtico flooring. Arranged on three floors extending to 2600sq' with gas central heating, new wiring and improved insulation which have significantly improved the properties energy rating. Agents note: Planning permission for a substantial new kitchen with veranda to the rear of the property was granted in December 2014, detaails of which can be found on Maidstone Borough Council's website.
