Guide Price £500,000 - £520,000. This back to back attached single storey property comes to the market with a wonderful opportunity for modernisation. It's just one of eight properties in the hamlet of Newlands Stud in a peaceful rural setting just outside of Charing. This property was originally built as stables and the owners believe it was converted to a dwelling in the late 1960s. Enter through the porch into the hall that has access to the downstairs WC straight ahead and the kitchen on your right. The kitchen currently has an abundance of wall and base units for storage and space and plumbing for appliances. There is ample room for a dining table and there are three tall windows lighting the kitchen. This room could be the perfect space for entertaining which could include a bespoke fitted kitchen with a centre island and bi-folding doors leading out to what could be an amazing outdoor entertaining or alfresco dining area. Back to the entrance hall and on the left you will find the living room that is approximately 32 foot with a beautiful inglenook fireplace. The living room is wonderfully lit with three large windows and a double set of sliding doors that lead to the outside space. The living room leads you round the corner to the separate dining room which has another set of sliding doors leading outside. Leading off from the dining room is a hallway that has access to both of the spacious double bedrooms and the bathroom (with separate WC). The bigger of the two bedrooms has doors leading outside and a large en-suite which has a separate bath and shower cubicle. There are two empty stables that adjoin the property ripe for conversion into either a home gym or that work from home space that so many of us are looking for at the moment. There is a newly installed LPG gas combi boiler to the property with a 10 year warranty.
Charing, a small but lively village in the Ashford District of Kent, situated at the foot of the North Downs. The village is sited on the Pilgrims' Way from London to Canterbury and is still surrounded by farmland, but the good transport links have also led to the area becoming a popular commuter village for people employed in London. Charing station has connecting services to London St Pancras via Ashford International or London Victoria station in approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. The village has a strong community life and the locals organise regular fairs, community and charity events. On the High Street and surrounding streets you will find a wide variety of shops, restaurants and services. Charing Church of England Primary School is just over half a mile away. Its most famous building is the Archbishop's Palace, which lies by the church and was an ancient possession of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The approach to the property is just wonderful, with Newlands Stud having a delightful array of grade II listed farmhouses and cottages. This property is the first house on the right hand side and is set back from the access road with a lovely large lawned area to the back of the property. The gated entrance and long driveway lead you up the main courtyard which is block paved and has plenty of potential to become a real feature of this unique property. With most of the rooms leading out to this space, it could make the perfect outdoor entertainment area, with the addition of some planters to create a colourful border and perhaps a water feature taking centre stage, the possibilities are endless! There are two open fronted car barns either side of a workshop with full power and light. With a little TLC this could also be transformed and one can see a lovely oak framed triple car barn or a larger workshop depending on the owners requirements. The main garden is mainly laid to lawn and has a lovely big grow house for those who like to grow their own. Again the main garden space has huge potential, and any green fingered people out there have a lovely blank canvas to work with. The plot is approximately half of an acre.
