To the left of the entrance hallway is the extremely generous family room with a door leading to the left wing of the house, which can be treated as an independent unit if desired, or incorporated into the main residence.

Directions
From our offices on The Pantiles, turn right onto Linden Park Road, then right again onto London Road. At the mini-roundabout, go straight on and stay on this road, going through a set of traffic lights, climbing up out of the town with the Common on your left. Keep going and at the next mini-roundabout, take the first exit onto St John's Road. Stay on this road, eventually passing a pub on your right called the Hand & Sceptre. Keep going, passing a bupa care home on your right and Vauxhall Lane, also on your right hand side. When you come to an access lane on your right hand side, start slowing down as Kennett is the third property after this lane on the right hand side, with solid wood gates along its frontage.
