Seller Insight This stunning house enjoys an equally stunning location. Set along a private road, it is part of an exclusive, well established, development of just a few houses. The River Medway is just at the bottom of the garden and the property enjoys its own 62ft river frontage, private mooring and fishing rights. It is just a short walk into the centre of Maidstone and to the station to travel on the fast train into St Pancras, a journey which takes only fifty-three minutes. The town has an outstanding array of amenities which includes exceptional schools, together with sport and leisure facilities. With so many wine bars and restaurants in the town, it does have a unique sociable vibrancy. Road links are also first rate and having such easy access onto the Continent gives added value to this lovely location. “Our home was not very old when we purchased it twenty years ago. We immediately fell in love with the house, but were utterly bowled over with its location. The house, classic in its design, had been built to a very high specification with a flexible layout perfect for our lifestyle. We have, of course, enhanced our home whilst we have been here; new kitchen and bathrooms have been installed. It has been an idyllic home for us and it’s also a heavenly place in which to entertain friends and family.” The garden and the river are so much part of the joy of living here, all of which become an extension of the house in the summer months when doors are open wide and the sounds of river life come drifting into the house.” “I particularly love my study.” states Andrew “It is so quiet in here and is exceptional for me at those times when I am working at home but, being full of personal memorabilia it is my private domain.” ”The garden and the river are so special. We have a large jetty which has a built in BBQ, with everything being organised for us to share this space with our friends and family. We take advantage of this area and spend many happy hours out here.” ”Our kitchen/breakfast room is incredibly sociable and guests always gather in here for chats. It is bright and sunny and does have a fabulous outlook onto the garden and the river.” “The time has come for us to move on but we will miss so much about living here; the brilliant house, the fabulous local community but, most of all the river, and the joy of being able to unwind after a busy day in the capital and spending time fishing or just watching the world go by.” * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
