    Description

    A unique opportunity to own this four bedroomed detached house, originating in the 18th century, converted in the 1820's to a Regency town house and subsequently extended in the 1919, set on the corner of St Margaret's Street and King Edward Road, in one of the most sought after locations in the heart of Rochester. For sale for the first time since 1973, this highly distinguishable cottage, painted pink in memory of cottages in Suffolk from the owners past, is set on a surprisingly large corner plot with walled garden and benefit of parking and detached double garage. The accommodation has been re-designed over the years to provide a generous sized sitting room with sweeping staircase and cast iron fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and basement room. Originally two staircases led to the first floor rooms, the current design one bedroom links through to others. There are two shower rooms and a recently installed gas boiler supplies the central heating. The walled garden is a delight with brick terrace, lawn, mature flower and shrub beds, mulberry and bramley apple trees and a wisteria. There is parking for 2/3 cars and a wooden detached double garage. Requiring general updating throughout the cottage offers an opportunity for a buyer to create a home to their own design. The house lies within the conservation area and sits well with historic landmarks including the Cathedral, 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 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.
