Property DESCRIPTION

This imposing detached family home sits impressively in an elevated position and on one of the most desirable locations in Rochester, Priestfields. Originally constructed in the 1970's the property has since been extended to include a sizeable double garage and indoor swimming pool complex. Currently configured as a 5 bedroomed residence the property affords a generous level of living and entertainment space both indoors and out.



Situated within Historic Rochester and within walking distance to its characterful high street to take in its cafe culture, bars and highly popular restaurants, entertainment is always just a short distance away. Artisan boutiques and unique independent shops make it popular to those looking for something different. Rochester Cathedral, the second oldest in England having been founded in 604AD, has been a place of worship for over 1400 years. The 12th century Norman castle is one of the best preserved in England and France and sits proudly over the river Medway and its marina, great for Sunday walks. The castle grounds regularly becomes a place of entertainment offering concerts and open air cinema something that comes highly recommended. One of the highlights is a proms type concert finished off with fireworks. Rochester is well known to be the residence of Charles Dickens and the setting and influence to many of his characters and stories and the town embraces this with many festivals that draws attention from afar, a great tourist attraction.



Very popular independent schools are within easy reach including Kings School, Gads Hill and Cobham Hall.
