Ward & Part­ners is seek­ing of­fers over £825,000 to se­cure a re­ally spe­cial home just off the vil­lage green at Bearsted.

This is with­out a doubt one of Kent’s most sought-af­ter ar­eas, with a good choice or pubs, restau­rants on the pretty vil­lage green, com­plete with cricket square and church.

Tucked away in a quiet spot just away from the road, the im­mac­u­late prop­erty comes with dou­ble a garage as well as plenty of off-road park­ing. High­lights in­clude the ex­ten­sive glaz­ing, which lets in lots of light, as well as the beau­ti­fully main­tained fin­ish.

The front door leads to a cen­tral hall­way which heads left to a 24ft kitchen/din­ing room. This large, triple as­pect room has a cen­tral is­land and french win­dows lead out to the back gar­den. Units are a mel­low wood, with con­trast­ing dark work­tops and there are ceil­ing down­lighters. A door takes you out to the util­ity room.

A large din­ing room also has french doors open­ing to the gar­den and the 19ft x 18ft lounge is a stun­ning triple as­pect room with a fire­place. An­other large down­stairs bed­room, with shower room off, would make a great guest an­nexe, or could be called into play as an ad­di­tional re­cep­tion room if needed.

Four bed­rooms are on the first floor, two of them with en suites. There is also a fam­ily bath­room. Three of the bed­rooms have built-in stor­age. The good-sized gar­den has a neat pa­tio and lawn as well as some trees.

Bearsted rail­way sta­tion is a short walk away.

Bearsted has no less than 59 listed build­ings, one of which is Holy Cross Church.

This church is Grade I listed and is be­lieved to be on the site where an an­cient fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing Holy Cross Day, was first held. The church’s arch is par­tially Saxon.

Bergest­ede, as it was once known, is An­gloSaxon for a place on the hill or bar­row.

The vil­lage green was named the Hothe and used as shared land dur­ing the 15th and 17th cen­turies. This is when the tra­di­tional English char­ac­ter build­ings sur­round­ing the green were built.

Listed build­ings within the vil­lage in­clude The Limes, the Old Bak­ery, Old Manor Cot­tages and Old Manor House, all of which date back to the 15th cen­tury.

The vil­lage to­day at­tracts com­mut­ing fam­i­lies and first-time buy­ers. There is a mainline rail sta­tion, with con­nec­tions to Lon­don tak­ing less than 70 min­utes.

It is gen­er­ally con­sid­ered a great place to bring up a fam­ily.
