If you are looking for The Good Life but still want to be near civilisation then this 4 bedroom 1930's detached property may be the one for you. The overall plot is in the region of a 1/3 of Acre (tbv) and boasts a wonderful, mature South-East facing rear garden with vegetable plots and enclosures, a small vineyard area, chicken run and a lawned area with extensive patio at the immediate rear of the property. The well proportioned accommodation comprises entrance hall, bay fronted sitting room with log burner, dining room with log burner, country style kitchen-breakfast room with Rayburn stove, utility area, conservatory, master bedroom with en-suite, second bedroom and a modern family bathroom on the ground floor. The loft has been converted to provide 2 further bedrooms. The property has an in-and-out block paved driveway with further parking under a carport as well as a garage. This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a conveniently situated property in a village location on a generous plot so we would urge interested parties to view early to avoid disappointment.
Situation - We love Aylesford village. How can you not? It has a great community spirit, some really interesting historic properties and many places to eat and drink! Our favourite eatery has to be The Hengist; a recently refurbished restaurant, bar and brasserie with a lovely al-fresco terrace. The Chequers is a more traditional pub which serves food and has a wonderful riverside terrace. You can also enjoy a light bite inside or outside at The Village Pantry, or at weekends for a friendly and cosy meal Sherlocks is worth a try, or perhaps a pint and a bite to eat in The Bush, public house. There are lovely riverside walks, walks through the neighbouring farmland and just on the edge of the village is The Friars; an ancient religious house open to the public with a cafe, farmers market and peaceful gardens. There is a small primary school in the centre of the village and further primary school just outside the village, both of which were rated as good in the latest Ofsted report as well as a secondary school in the wider Aylesford area. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping, with an M & S foodstore, Sainsburys and an Aldi just up the road. Commuters are well served with London services (changing at Strood) from Aylesford station and you’ve got access to both the M2 and M20 nearby. If this isn’t enough then the County Town of Maidstone is just 4 miles away and has a multitude of retail, educational and recreational facilities.
