Description

The Firs presents a rare opportunity to purchase an imposing and very distinctive 6 bedroom / 3 bathroom detached village home with wonderful grounds of circa 0.6 of an acre, a large driveway and double garage, just a short walk from the centre of Charing village and its mainline station to London.

For lovers of period architecture there is much to get excited about here. While part of this superb Grade II Listed house is thought to date back to the 15th Century, other parts are distinctly Victorian with later additions, which have been sympathetically added and updated over the years to make what is now a very special home. Although the proportions of the rooms and the square footage on offer (approx. 3,500 square feet in total) are already generous, the layout and large plot size offer further scope for extension if desired, subject of course to the necessary permissions.

Outside, there is is a wonderful park like garden to the rear, the size of which is rarely found so close to the centre of the village, providing a haven for children, keen gardeners, pets and nature lovers alike. The property also benefits from much kerb appeal, with a landscaped parterre garden, large gated driveway and sympathetically designed new double garage with further potential to the front.

This beautiful property would make the ideal home for a buyer wishing to be in a village location, close to all the local amenities, while still needing to be within a short distance of good towns, schools and transport links. Viewing is highly recommended.

ACCOMMODATION
Having been extensively refurbished and recently redecorated throughout, this stunning home has a warm, lived in feel, with stylishly presented, generous accommodation that invites you in and would perfectly suit modern family living.

ACCOMMODATION contd.
As you enter this property via a very useful enclosed porch and step into the welcoming entrance hall with its chequerboard Victorian tiled floor and beautiful staircase with mahogany carved newel post, you know you are in a very special house indeed. The heart of this magnificent home though is most definitely the wonderful reception rooms with their beautiful fireplaces and period features, where you can imagine large family gatherings taking place.

Accommodation contd.
The spacious kitchen / breakfast / family room with its bespoke country style kitchen, range, walk-in larder, slate worktops and flagstone floor, is perfectly in keeping with the feel of the house. A handy utility room leads off of this and gives access to the garden beyond. NB: Although this space already works well, its position at the back of the house and the size of the garden certainly offers someone the opportunity to extend this space if desired, subject of course to the necessary permissions.

Accommodation contd.
Explore further, and you discover a large sitting room which sits in the oldest part of the house and as such, has beautiful Tudor features including two stones fireplaces, one of which has a wood burning stove. To the Victorian side of the house is an incredibly generous dining room which would accommodate the largest of dining tables, and a cosy snug cum study, both of which have beautiful original fireplaces and features. A cloakroom and inner hallway completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

FIRST FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
To the first floor, a long landing leads to three double bedrooms in the older wing of the house, currently set up as children's rooms, all of which are served by a good size family bathroom which has a free standing bath, separate shower, basin and WC. To the Victorian wing are three further double bedrooms, one of which has its own en-suite shower room, while the other two are served by a second family bathroom with free standing bath, separate shower, vanity unit with two basins and WC. The second largest of the bedrooms, which sits at the back of the house, also benefits from a dressing room and wonderful views over the garden. Should someone wish, this wing could certainly be made into one large principal bedroom suite.

OUTSIDE
Electrically operated gates lead onto an extended gravel driveway at the front of the property which provides parking and turning for a number of vehicles. A newly constructed, insulated double garage with electric door and storage area above, could provide further potential if desired (stpp). The house itself is set back behind a landscaped parterre garden which is perfectly in keeping with the character of the house. To the rear, the lovely south facing part walled garden is well screened by mature trees and has large expanses of lawn, ideal for the enjoyment of children.
