4 bed Detached House


High Street, Rochester, ME1



Move into genuine Rochester history with this Grade II listed detached house built circa 1567.The history of this building is long and interesting given that it has had many uses over the years, dating right back to when it was a river side public house and even a sweet shop at one stage. The current owners however converted it to it's current form, approximately 23 years ago, restoring a lot of the charm and features of the property.What has been created is a spacious family home which can also accommodate modern day living. The four reception areas allow any family to have their own space, but the large kitchen/breakfast room means there is enough space for the family to come together during the morning routines or at diner times.The space also goes below ground with two cellars laid out over two levels.The four bedrooms, each with their own unique character, are all a very good size and two of which feature en suites, extremely rare to find in homes of this age. To emphasise the size, the master bedroom itself fits a Super King Poster Bed. There is also a large attic which could provide excellent potential to further extend the living space, subject to necessary planning consents being obtainable.The home also features a large paved rear garden which, when the sun is out, becomes a great place to dine outside or entertain friends and family with a BBQ. Another benefit, which is hard to find in this central location is parking. The secure gating to the rear of the garden allows you to drive onto the paved area to park numerous cars and still maintain plenty of garden space, the current owners have stated that this space is approximately 2,400 square feet.Situated on Rochester's historic High Street with easy access to the mainline train station which provides frequent fast links to various London destinations.
