We are delighted to present this beautiful 18th century five-bedroom Grade II Listed property on the picturesque South Street in Barming. With many original features preserved and embraced, the stunning charm and character of its architecture makes this one of the most unique properties on the market.
The property comprises two reception rooms, a kitchen/diner, a utility room, downstairs WC, downstairs shower room, a usable basement room, four large double bedrooms and a fifth single room, two ensuite bathrooms, a garage, and an incredible landscaped rear garden with amazing views over the flower meadow, orchards, and Medway valley, to the rear of the property.
On the ground floor are the two reception rooms which are both a generous size, and the entire ground floor benefits from surprisingly high ceilings for a property of this era. The lounge has access to the basement which has been made into a perfectly usable room; ideal for use as a study/office, a games room, or even a playroom. To the rear of the ground floor is a large sociable open plan kitchen/diner with rustic units and patio doors out to the rear garden. Off here is a utility room that leads to a downstairs shower room and separate WC. There is also an outside store attached to the house accessible from the garden.
On the first floor are two of the four double bedrooms and the single bedroom. To your right as you ascend the stairs is a beautiful large bedroom with exposed beams, and steps down to an ensuite bathroom. The bedroom on the other side of the landing is also a spacious double, has an ensuite shower room, and leads through to an extra room that could be used for storage or as a dressing room, and at the back of here is the single bedroom with quaint window and views over the garden. On the second floor are two more double bedrooms separated by a landing.
The rear garden is an absolute joy to behold. It begins with a patio area that has the outside store, a lovely pond, and side access to the garage and a gate which could if opened also allow off-street parking for another vehicle. The garden is a wonderful mixture of lawn, plants, and planting beds, and includes a greenhouse. It wraps around the back of the adjacent cottages and is surrounded by a wonderful stone wall at the perimeter of the neighbours gardens. This one is for garden lovers and would be perfect for families or couples alike.
