Large, four-bed character family home with a country feel situated in the heart of the highly sought after village of Wateringbury within the Conservation Area.
This period home dates back to 1872 and we understand from the current owners that it was originally part of an old manor house. During its rich history it was used as a billet for soldiers during the Second World War and a Grocery store. The house is light and airy and gives a real feeling of space.
The large kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house and is an ideal family space and the sitting room with its wood burning stove is beautiful and cosy. As you can see from the layout, the home is VERSATILE and SPACIOUS and offers the flexibility to accommodate those who need to work from home as well as a growing family. The top bedroom is currently used as a studio/office.
To the rear of the house is an attractive south facing garden which is mainly laid to lawn with shrub and plant borders. There is a gravelled patio area and to the rear of the garden is a shed with power and another store area. To the side of the house is OFF ROAD PARKING for several cars and there is also the option to create a further private parking area behind the gates at the rear of the property.
The house is within walking distance of local amenities including the primary school, village hall, shops, and tea room and is ideally situated for country walks. There are orchards and a marina just a short walk away.
Wateringbury is located about 5 miles south-east of the popular market town of West Malling and 5 miles west of the larger shopping centre of Maidstone.
