An important Grade II listed Georgian town house situated in the heart of the historic village of Charing, boasting a wealth of character with extensive and versatile family accommodation, landscaped private gardens and garaging/workshop facilities.

This substantial yet elegant property has accommodation arranged over three floors extending to 3,722 sq. ft. and benefits from a versatile layout including two front entrances from School Road, providing the flexibility of self contained annexe accommodation or possible commercial space, subject to the necessary planning consent.

The present owner has spent a great deal of time and attention to detail in creating a stylish, elegant interior whilst cleverly retaining many original features throughout. Upon viewing this spectacular property, one has the choice of two entrance halls giving access to four reception rooms, some with feature open fireplaces, plus a light and airy garden room, contemporary fitted kitchen with slate floor, Britannia range cooker and dishwasher and the added benefit of a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor, the light and airy double aspect master bedroom enjoys fitted wardrobes and en-suite access to a large bathroom with roll top bath, whilst two further double bedrooms have use of a fully tiled wet room. On the second floor, four further double bedrooms can be found enjoying elevated views over the village. Other benefits and features include gas fired central heating via radiators, broadband availability and many original oak beams throughout.

Outside, the private landscaped rear garden has two lawned areas with an abundance of mature shrubs/floral beds and trees, timber summer house and a feature brick boundary wall. Vehicular access from School Road leads to a large brick built detached garage and workshop with studio accommodation above, again providing the potential for annexe accommodation or commercial space, subject to the necessary planning consent.

The property is situated in School Road, just off the historic High Street in 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 from the larger market town of Ashford and 13 miles from Maidstone, both accessible via the A20, whilst Canterbury, accessed via the A252, is some 12.5 miles distant.

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 St Pancras, 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.
