They say don’t judge a book by its cover, and the same goes for houses - particularly this seven-bedroom house in the heart of Rochester.
This Grade II listed property looks somewhat unassuming from the front, but the garden holds a stunning secret.
Step out of the back door and prepare to be wowed by the large walled garden, vibrant lawns, towering trees, colourful flower beds and pretty pond.
However, the most breathtaking spot in this west-facing garden is the sun terrace and Victorian summerhouse.
Look out from the garden’s elevated vistas for miles over the River Medway and surrounding parkland. Whether you are enjoying alfresco dining on a summer’s evening or taking a moment to enjoy the peace and quiet, you can capture some truly beautiful views from here.
While the garden is the real selling point of this property, the inside is also rather impressive.
On the market for £1.45m, this family home features seven spacious bedrooms, four bathrooms, five reception rooms and two kitchens, making it the perfect place for entertaining.
To make these incredible rooms even more attractive, there are traditional period features dotted throughout the house. Keep an eye out for timber sash windows, magnificent fireplaces, an oak staircase and decorative plaster dating back to the 1680s.
The sprawling garden and grand interiors might feel like a stately country home, but this property is actually nestled in the heart of town.
You couldn’t get much closer to Rochester’s historic castle and cathedral, along with the charming high street and its array of independent shops, bars and restaurants just a few minutes’ walk away.
The station is also only 10 minutes from your doorstep and, if you prefer to drive, the property is located close to the M2 and M20.
