An individual 1930's detached three bedroom chalet bungalow occupying painstakingly landscaped gardens of 0.39 acre with driveway and detached garage, backing fields and situated just outside the sought after village centre of Charing.

Kelmscott has been in the same ownership for the last 35 years and has been continuously maintained and improved over that time having had a replacement kitchen and bathroom as recently as four years ago. Other notable benefits include sealed unit double glazing and gas fired central heating via radiators.

Ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall, 23' x 15' sitting room, separate dining room which is open plan into the fitted kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, two bedrooms and bathroom, whilst the first floor benefits from a large double bedroom measuring 18'3" x 11'5" and extremely versatile 15'4" x 15' landing area, which could potentially be converted to additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consent.

Outside, the property enjoys landscaped front and rear gardens totalling 0.39 acre which have been carefully crafted over many years by the owner. A gravel driveway provides off road parking for two/three vehicles along with a detached single garage. The rear garden is set out in a number of different zones with a patio area to the rear of the property and potential space for further extension or a conservatory, subject to planning permission, a vegetable garden with two garden sheds, a floral/shrub garden and extensive lawned area which backs onto fields.

Kelmscott is located to the south side of the village centre 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 St Pancras, with a journey time of just 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. Properties of this type located close to the village centre are rarely available and we strongly urge interested applicants to make immediate arrangements to view.
