Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - BEAUTIFULHOMES -

On the mar­ket now is Oak­mead, an ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated at­tached house.

The prop­erty in­cor­po­rates beau­ti­fully pre­sented in­te­ri­ors and is within walk­ing dis­tance of Cran­brook’s High Street.

Four-bed­room Oak­mead has re­cently been sub­ject to an ex­ten­sive pro­gramme of ren­o­va­tions, cre­at­ing a re­vi­talised, spa­cious fam­ily home.

It also re­tains a num­ber of lovely orig­i­nal fea­tures in­clud­ing wooden floors, pe­riod fire­places and ex­posed beams.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion is made up of three bright, airy re­cep­tion rooms and fur­ther ver­sa­tile liv­ing space is pro­vided on the lower ground floor.

This is cur­rently ar­ranged to pro­vide a play­room and bed­room but could be used in a va­ri­ety of ways to suit your fam­ily’s re­quire­ments.

Of par­tic­u­lar note is the be­spoke made kitchen which in­cor­po­rates hand-painted units with wal­nut work­tops and high spec­i­fi­ca­tion stain­less steel dual fuel range cooker, dou­ble dish­washer and fridge freezer.

The bath­room has a free­stand­ing bath and walk in shower.

The out­side space at Oak­mead wasn’t for­got­ten in the re­cent ren­o­va­tions and the wrap-around gar­den is a charm­ing fea­ture.

Ac­cess to the front of the house is via cast iron gates and through a neat clipped knot gar­den.

The south-fac­ing part-walled back gar­den has clipped box top­i­ary and masses of herba­ceous plants and flow­er­ing shrubs, cre­at­ing a de­light­ful set­ting.

Ac­cess for ve­hi­cles is via nearby Water­loo Yard, with pri­vate park­ing reached through the car port.

The prop­erty is lo­cated di­rectly op­po­site the highly re­garded Cran­brook School and Sta­ple­hurst Sta­tion is just five miles away, pro­vid­ing fre­quent ser­vices to Lon­don.
