About this property
When you want the idyllic Kent Countryside LifestyleWithout being stuck out in the sticks.
You can enjoy a quiet rural life in this superb family home - but you're still less than 15 minutes from Tesco and only 10 minutes from the train to Victoria!
If you're looking for a property that will encourage a slower pace of life for you and your family, this traditional detached property on a 0.44 acre plot is sure to deliver.
But rural and relaxed doesn't have to mean isolated.
If you need a pint of milk or loaf of bread, you can jump in the car and be in Newington in 5 minutes. There's a choice of pubs, takeaways, and a Nisa local for your day-to-day needs.
Both Rainham and Sittingbourne are less than 15 minutes' drive away, handy if you need to hit the big-name retailers or catch up with friends for a drink or a meal.
And if you're heading further afield, trains go from Rainham, Sittingbourne and nearby Newington to London Victoria. The journey to the capital usually takes just over an hour with the fastest connection taking only 55 minutes.
This property has been very well looked after, inside, and out. It's only had one owner since the late 1970's, who've decorated the property in a neutral and unfussy style. It's the ideal blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on the place.
As it sits on a large 0.44-acre plot space is not an issue, and no room benefits more so than the 13m long lounge.
By contrast the welcoming kitchen isn't the biggest - but there is a separate utility room for your appliances and a separate dining room next door.
There's no urgent need to make any improvements but in time you may consider opening up the kitchen, dining room and utility (and relocating the downstairs w/c) to create a superb space for cooking, dining and relaxing together.
There's plenty of space at the rear if you wanted to go a stage further and extend.
Upstairs, there's three double bedrooms (the master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom), one single bedroom, and a shower room.
The outside space is almost as impressive as the inside.
Surrounded by open fields the 0.44 acre plot has space for large lawned gardens with a patio seating area and a fishpond, parking on the drive for a fleet of cars and a substantial double garage/outbuilding.
The double garage does give you options. Given nobody parks their cars in garages these days (especially when you have so much space to park on the drive) it could be ripe for conversion.
You really are limited by your creativity here. It could be turned into a multitude of uses, it would be an ideal home office (if you outgrow the study), a gym room, teenager's lair, games room, or home cinema.
You could even convert it into a self-contained annexe for a relative or to rent out through Airbnb!
As this is a family home it's important to be close to good schools.
If you have younger children, Hartlip Endowed Church of England Primary School (rated "Good" by Ofsted) is only 5 minutes' drive away.
For older kids, The Leigh Academy is only 4 minutes' drive away in Rainham, and Rainham Mark Grammar School is around 12 minutes' drive away.
Alternatively, The Westlands School in Sittingbourne is around 15 minutes' drive away.
This is a versatile family home in a quiet Kent countryside location, offering plenty of space for you and your family.
It will be ideal if you're looking to put down roots in a peaceful, rural setting without giving up on the convenience and amenities you get when you're close to town.
