6 bed Detached House
Country home in Loose conservation area
Named after "Mount Ararat" where Noah's Ark is said to have landed because of it's elevated position this quite distinctive property is located in a conservation area and has stunning views over the Loose Valley. Believed to originally date back to the late 1700's the property has been extended over the years and now has an eye catching ragstone, brick and weatherboard façade.
With six bedrooms, four reception rooms, a kitchen breakfast room and a conservatory and cellar this property offers spacious and flexible living accommodation over split levels and even has the potential for an integrated annex.
Located in an elevated position in the picturesque Loose Valley conservation area Mount Ararat boasts some breathtaking views and is set within approximately two acres of well established grounds perfect for entertaining friends. Whilst the property benefits from this secluded rural position it's location is extremely convenient. Maidstone town centre is only a short distance away and benefits from an extensive range of retail and leisure facilities plus mainline rail stations. Additionally, Maidstone and its surrounding suburbs and villages provide a choice of schools for all ages. Furthermore, there are four Grammar Schools in the area plus private school facilities at Sutton Valence.
The capital is easily accessed via the nearby M20 and notably high speed rail services now operate from Maidstone West station to London St Pancras. As a result journey times on these routes have been slashed to under an hour.
