An attractive individual extended three bedroom semi detached cottage with garage, driveway and split level gardens backing on to fields, set on the outskirts of Charing in the pretty hamlet of Charing Heath.

The property has been extended over the years with the original stone property believed to have origins dating back over 200 years. An extension to the Eastern end of the property in the 1900's made a large difference to the overall accommodation, with a Southern extension some 30 years ago providing further space. The characterful interior is arranged over two floors to include two living rooms, both with wood burners, a fitted L-shaped kitchen/diner and ground floor shower room. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Externally, there is a detached garage measuring 23'9” and off road parking for several vehicles. There is a side gate accessing the split level rear gardens. You are then greeted with well-tended ornamental gardens with a wide variety of shrubs and borders with a patio and pergola ideal for alfresco dining. There are steps leading to an upper level lawned garden with superb views backing on to fields.

The property is located just 1.8 miles from the centre of Charing. Charing enjoys an interesting mix of village shops, pubs, restaurants, church, primary school and doctor's surgery. 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. Transport links are well supported with a main line railway station in the village (1.5 miles), 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. Charing Heath itself has a local public house and church. Properties such as this in the area are quite rare, so we would strongly urge any interested parties to make arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
