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. There is a large 17’9 x 16’ sitting room with log burning stove and superb uninterrupted views across the River Medway, a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, modern bathroom suite and a newly re-fitted shower room, gas central heating, garden, plus a detached garage and driveway. 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. There are also good access roads to the A2 and M2. Must be seen!
