    Description

    Available to the market for the first time since 1967, with immediate vacant possession, this imposing double fronted Victorian seven bedroomed semi-detached house is situated in one of the most sought after residential roads in central Rochester. An abundance of original period features remain in this substantial home, such as fireplaces, deep skirting boards, panelled doors, plaster cornices, ceiling roses and staircase with mahogany banister rail. The house is set on a large plot with a wall and fence enclosed mature south facing garden of approximately 150' (with landmark and TPO trees). Set over four floors, there is a 21'9 lounge with full height windows and doors into the garden, two further reception rooms, the principle bedroom is 24'3 with new wooden double glazed bay window overlooking the garden and three basement rooms. Requiring a programme of modernisation, the owners have just completed replacing the majority of windows with wooden double glazed sash windows and refurbished the dining room bay window. There is a private front driveway for one car and a modern double garage at the end of the garden with access from Roebuck Road. The house lies within the conservation area and sits well with historic landmarks including the Cathedral (visible from first and second floor front windows), Rochester Castle and the reinvigorated, vibrant High Street with its independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Rochester is well known for its association with Charles Dickens and hosts a variety of cultural festivals during the year, such as the Dickens Festival, the Sweeps festival, Dickensian Christmas and Castle gardens concerts. The attractive High Street is lined with a selection of period buildings dating from Georgian and Victorian times. There are a range of schools, private and state, including Kings School (the property is directly opposite the Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory schools, with the Senior school only a short walk away), St Andrews School, Rochester Girls Grammar School and the Mathematical school all within walking distance. The new mainline station is within a few minutes' walk and has excellent services to London Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Victoria and a hi-speed service to Ebbsfleet (18min), Stratford and St Pancras (38 min). There are also excellent road links via the A2, M2, M20 and M25 to Maidstone, Canterbury, London, Bluewater shopping centre, Ebbsfleet International Station and Gatwick Airport.
