An excellent opportunity to acquire a two bedroom detached country house with a number of outbuildings set in a level plot of approximately 1.85 acres atop the North Downs close to the semi-rural village of Charing.

The property requires modernisation but would equally benefit from extending, subject to the necessary planning consents, providing the opportunity of considerably larger accommodation in a highly sought after location.

Bowl Farm is believed to date from the late 19th century and benefits from accommodation arranged over two floors comprising a conservatory/garden room, kitchen, bathroom, sitting room, dining room, two bedrooms and a useful basement cellar. Outside, the property is approached by private gates to a parking area for several vehicles along with a number of outbuildings providing workshop/storage space. The extensive gardens lie principally to the south of the property and the total plot extends to approximately 1.85 acres.

The property is located at the western end of Bowl Road, an area well suited to the equestrian/outdoor enthusiast, just one mile north of the semi-rural village of Charing. The village enjoys an interesting mix of shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, health club, primary school and doctors' surgery. Transport links are well supported with a mainline railway station in the village providing access to London Victoria and Ashford International stations, whilst Junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 5 miles distant and Junction 8, some 8 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 37 minute High Speed service to London St Pancras.

Opportunities such as this rarely present themselves and we strongly urge interested applicants to make immediate arrangements to view to avoid disappointment.
