A substantial detached residence set within generous and mature gardens of approximately half an acre and backing onto farmland, in a wonderful rural setting near Faversham. Rosedale was built in 1966, yet has been significantly extended over the years and now offers extensive accommodation, including a useful ground floor bedroom & wet room. Other improvements include the addition of thermal solar panels and PV solar panels (with a feed-in tariff of approximately £1000 per annum). However, the interior of the property is somewhat dated in parts and would benefit from a new owner modernising and improving this spacious family home.
The front door opens into a useful porch, which in turn leads into an entrance hall, with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. To the left of the entrance hall, there is an impressive dual aspect sitting room. From here, French doors open into a spectacular triple aspect garden room, with a beamed, vaulted ceiling, a wood burning stove and double glazed French doors to the garden.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is a dual aspect, open plan kitchen and dining room, separated by a distinctive archway. The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor units, set around rolled top work surfaces, some integrated appliances and an island unit. A rear lobby/boot room provides access to both the rear garden and the sixth bedroom. This bedroom has its own front door and consists of an entrance porch, a double bedroom with an en-suite wet room and leads to a utility room with lovely views over the gardens. Access is provided to the rear garden through the utility room and lobby/boot room.
On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms, a comfortable single bedroom and a well appointed family shower room with a modern white suite. The master bedroom is accesses via its own landing and is a huge triple aspect room, which runs the entire depth of the house. The master bedroom enjoys splendid views over the gardens and the countryside beyond and has extensive fitted wardrobes, a separate dressing room and a full en-suite bathroom, making this a thoroughly impressive master suite.
Rosedale is set within a generous plot of approximately half an acre and is approached via a block paved driveway, which provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to an integral tandem garage. There is a beautifully planted front garden, filled with an array of mature flowers and shrubs and enclosed behind a brick wall, which collectively provide a good degree of privacy from the lane.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and has been lovingly planted with an extensive array of mature flowers and shrubs. There are several outbuildings, including various storage sheds, greenhouses and a superb timber summerhouse with power, lighting, ideal for use as a home office.
In addition to the formal gardens, there is a productive fruit garden, with a variety of species including josterberry bushes, raspberries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, white currant, fig trees, cherry, apple and pear trees and a walnut tree.
Rosedale is situated on a country lane, surrounded by orchards, farmland and rolling countryside, in between the village of Teynham and the bustling market town of Faversham.
The thriving village of Teynham benefits from numerous local shops (including two supermarkets), several pubs, a restaurant, a library, a primary school and a mainline train station which offers regular commuter services to London's Victoria, a fast service to St. Pancras International and a regular service to the coast. The village also enjoys excellent road links to London and the coast via the A2 and the nearby M2 motorway.
Faversham has a wide choice of supermarkets, restaurants, individual shops and leisure facilities. There are three markets a week in the cobbled town square beside the ancient Guildhall.
Community attractions include the famous annual Hop Festival (the town boasts the oldest brewery in the country) and a magnificent weekend-long classic car show. On the outskirts of the town, Brogdale 'The Home of the National Fruit Collection' stages regular events celebrating Kent as the fruit producing Garden of England.
Both Faversham and Sittingbourne boast high-achieving grammar schools. The cathedral city of Canterbury; Margate, home of its Turner Gallery; and trendy Whitstable, renowned for its oyster, beaches and interesting mix of shops, are all short journeys away. Thanks to the Eurostar, the 'Shuttle' and cross- Channel ferries, the Continent is virtually on your doorstep.
