Property description

Fabulous river views from this superb two bedroomed duplex apartment offering deceptively spacious accommodation, set in a large Victorian detached house with a good sized private garden.

All the modern fittings combine with well the attractive period features such as plaster cornicing, picture rails, staircase and stained glass windows. There is a large loft area with windows, where further rooms could be created subject to the usual permissions. Located on a bus route, within a quarter mile of local shops in Borstal Village and a mile and a half from Rochester town centre with its general amenities and mainline station with hi-speed trains to London.
