If you are upwardly mobile, busy professionals wanting space for your money, or have a large family to accommodate, then this three Double Bedroom Semi-Detached home would suit you perfectly. It is offered chain-free.
Properties of this age are very appealing because of the large room sizes, high ceilings and wealth of original features. In this particular house the owners have taken care to retain them, adding to the property’s elegance and charm inside and out.
This house offers you the opportunity to maximise your investment with a high degree of flexibility: you could convert the cellar into a workshop or playroom for example; build a kitchen/dining conservatory at the back; or go up into the loft to create an extra bedroom/bathroom combination.
With its generously proportioned Edwardian houses, Cleave Road is located in the heart of a peaceful conservation area. In our opinion this is one of the most desirable roads to live in and is also popular with commuters.
Gillingham Park is barely 160m away, offering an ideal space for leisure time, with a children’s play area and a popular fitness circuit under the trees. The parade of shops and eateries close by meet all your needs locally if you prefer not to drive, but there are numerous large supermarkets within a 5-minute drive. There is a doctor up the road and there are several sports centres and a golf course just a few minutes walk away.
The Strand Leisure open air swimming pools, Riverside Country Park and Capstone offer beautiful waterside and pastoral walks right on your doorstep, and the latter venue also offers dry-skiing and snowboarding slopes and the longest downhill toboggan run in the UK.
The property is well placed for commuting and holiday travel: it is just a short Drive to the M2 and M20 motorways giving fast access to London and the Coast and it is only 30mins to the Chunnel which will get you to Europe in under an hour – ideal for a cosmopolitan day out or a trip to the pristine beaches of Belgium. It is approximately 30mins to Ashford for the Euro-star train to Paris, and around 40 minutes drive to the Dome.
Being in the heart of Gillingham’s peaceful conservation area the house is a 20 minute walk to Gillingham Station, affording national rail links to St Pancras International and the north, as well as connections to London Bridge, Victoria and Waterloo for all other parts of the country. The new high-speed rail link from St Pancras to Gillingham takes just 30mins, and the trains are frequent, so excellent for busy commuters or, if you are living here, a quick shopping trip to London. Medway is also equidistant from Stansted and Gatwick.
There are numerous state schools ranging from primary to secondary within walking distance, and there are several private schools in Rochester. Greenwich University is in cycling distance, and Kent University at Medway has a large campus here.
The house has been the focus of extensive sympathetic renovations since the current Owners moved here in 2002. The works completed 6 years ago include fitting handmade sliding sashes in the original box frames at the front of the property, while all other windows to the side and the rear were replaced with custom-made German Slide-and-Tilt sash Double Glazing (the rear reception already had double-glazed bay windows with French doors). The side and back elevations were completely re-rendered and new guttering fitted front and back. The side and the rear front garden walls were replaced last year. Internally, the property was re-plastered, and all doors were replaced with handmade Edwardian Style panelled doors, as was the internal main front door. A new consumer unit for the electrics was fitted about 6 years ago and a luxury Bathroom installed in the last two years. The property has also been redecorated externally and internally in the last 12 months.
The owners’ care and attention to detail means you will find this property in top quality condition, with plenty of original features to enjoy.
