Since then, the property has been enjoyed as a large family home, with four elegant, spacious reception rooms and four double bedrooms on the first floor and a stunning second floor bedroom measuring 24'6” x 19'4”.

Burleigh Road is a private road situated just outside the centre of the village of Charing. The village 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. Charing enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, pubs, restaurants, church, primary school and doctor's surgery. Transport links are well supported with a main line railway station in the village, providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International station which benefits from the High Speed train service to London, reducing the journey time to 37 minutes. Junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant and junction 8, some 8 miles distant, both providing direct access to London and the Kent coast.
