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.

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.
