A prime opportunity to acquire a four/five bedroom detached cottage requiring some modernising in a generous landscaped plot of 0.47 acres in the heart of Charing village, offering the potential for future development for other dwellings (subject to consents).

This home is one of the first to greet you upon entering the village and has been owned by the same family for the past 39 years, a great testament as to what a happy home it has been to enjoy.

The current accommodation comprises entrance hall, shower room, bedroom, 21'7” (6.58m) principal reception room with bay window, kitchen, rear hall, bathroom, two further bedrooms and a utility room/conservatory. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms. The current layout and accommodation of the property could potentially be altered (subject to consents) to fit requirements.

The grounds of this lovely home are a real treat, totalling approximate 0.47 acres, there is a gated driveway with plentiful parking leading to a double car port. The well-tended gardens offer a more than generous space to relax and unwind with a wide variety of shrubs, borders, trees, raised vegetable beds and patio. The plot also offers the potential, subject to the necessary permissions, to develop.

Charing sits between the foot of the North Downs with the Pilgrim's Way and the Green Sand Ridge, a rural area rich in farming, some 5.5 miles west of the larger market town of Ashford and 13 miles east of Maidstone. The village enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, micro pub, churches, primary school and doctor's surgery.

Transport links are well supported with a main line railway station, providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International stations, whilst junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant. The village is also just 5 miles west of the market town of Ashford, with its excellent shopping and leisure facilities, choice of schools and Ashford International station which benefits from the High Speed train service to London St Pancras with a journey time of only 37 minutes.
