Former bishop’s home has walled garden
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.
