For­mer bishop’s home has walled gar­den

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Three hundred years old and once a res­i­dence for the Bishop of Rochester, this fam­ily home oozes his­tory.

A cen­tral flag­stone path through a partly walled front gar­den takes you through box beds, lime and quince trees to the grand door­way of the house at Nag’s Head Lane, Rochester.

The Ge­or­gian prop­erty is within walk­ing dis­tance of Rochester’s his­toric High Street and is on the mar­ket with Fine & Country priced £625,000.

Grade II-listed, it has three bed­rooms in the main house and a fourth bed­room in a de­tached con­verted stable – ideal for teenagers or rel­a­tives.

Buy­ers will find a large wel­com­ing hall­way with pan­elled walls and ex­posed pe­riod floor­boards and a wide Queen Anne stair­case. Two well pro­por­tioned re­cep­tion rooms are at the front of the house, both pan­elled with box sash win­dows, shut­ters and fea­ture fire­places. The kitchen is at the back of the house, with built-in Neff hob and dou­ble oven. Larder cup­boards are set ei­ther side of a fea­ture fire­place with a wood burn­ing stove and slate tiled sur­round. There is a din­ing room at the back, over­look­ing the gar­den. On the first floor are two large bed­rooms, one with en suite. Up on the top floor is a fur­ther dou­ble bed­room and fam­ily bath­room. The south west fac­ing walled back gar­den has two pa­tios and a lawn and is a great spot to hear the cathe­dral bells on a Sun­day morn­ing. A de­tached an­nexe con­verted from a stable block has a kitchen diner and liv­ing room/ bed­room with a shower room.
