Rarely does such an opportunity arise. Set in the hamlet of Thong and believed to be once part of Lord Darnley's estate this Victorian semi-detached house is set on a plot extending to 0.4 of an acre. On the ground floor the property offers two reception rooms. From the lounge there are stunning views east across open fields to the woods of Shorne Country Park. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and utility room. Accessed from the hallway are stairs up to three bedrooms and down to the heated cellar currently used as a study. To the rear of the property is further sitting room and bedroom with en-suite shower room previously used as a granny annexe. These rooms have been designed to be easily reconfigured to provide additional family accommodation. An alternate tread staircase leads from this sitting room to a loft room currently used for storage but constructed to only require the addition of a roof light to become a fifth bedroom. The established gardens wrap around the house and lead to a period two storey barn built in 1921 for a Homes for Heroes small holding.
