**Historical Charm in Bearsted: A Rare Find on Ware Street**
Nestled in the heart of Ware Street in the highly desirable locale of Bearsted lies this enchanting three-bedroom attached period home. Once, long ago, this property and its neighbouring house were a singular grand abode, believed to have been a coach house. While its tales of yesteryears are shrouded in mystery, theres no denying the allure of owning a piece of history and spending many an hour unraveling its past.
Upon entering from the side, youre immediately welcomed by a spacious porch with a convenient WC to your right. Further in, the traditional layout unfolds with a fully-equipped kitchen, utility room, and the principal lounge – an inviting space accentuated by an ornate inglenook fireplace, equipped with a log burner, exuding warmth and character. Adjacently, the rear of the ground floor houses the second sitting room; a versatile sanctuary that can adapt to your lifestyle.
The lounge grants access to a discrete lobby that further leads to a downstairs bathroom. Ascend the staircase and be greeted by an intriguing landing space – an intimate nook for avid readers to immerse in tales while relishing the tranquillity of the home. Alternatively, is practicality takes precedence over leisure & tranquility, the current owners have obtained listed building consent to install a WC in this place. Two sizable double bedrooms and a single room offer restful retreats. A subtle door on the landing reveals another surprise: a small staircase (or perhaps a glorified loft ladder) that whisks you away to a hidden attic room. A canvas for creativity, it beckons to be transformed into an art studio, a craft room, or even a quiet study. But if that doesn’t entice you, perhaps the log cabin in the garden would!
Speaking of the garden, it’s a verdant spectacle spread across approximately 0.13 acres. Divided into three distinct areas, it boasts a manicured lawn, an expansive vegetable patch for the green-thumbed, and a serene pond with a restful patio – a setting made perfect by the accompanying log cabin.
