Castle Hill, Hartley
GUIDE PRICE £550,000 – £575,000
Rare to market and in a quiet position within the village of Hartley is this generously proportioned, semi-detached family home.
Substantially extended, modernised and well-maintained by its current, long-standing owners, the property is “move-in” ready and offers a wealth of original character, throughout.
Downstairs, entrance is via the characterful kitchen, featuring tiled flooring, integrated dishwasher, Rangemaster oven, butler style sink and an exposed brick wall. This leads through to a dining room, featuring ornate fireplace and tastefully decorated with re-claimed pine.
An archway leads through to the main lounge, again displaying exposed brickwork and re-claimed pine panelling, together with feature log-burner – a bright and spacious room with space for the family. To the rear is well appointed conservatory, a later addition to the house, benefiting from an abundance of natural light from the South-Facing garden. This also benefits from tiled flooring with underfloor heating.
From the lounge, convenience is provided in the form of a utility room, and a downstairs shower room / WC. These complete the accommodation on this floor.
The rear garden itself is maintained impeccably, protected and offered privacy by mature trees to the rear boundary. The space is largely laid-to-lawn, but features ample potting space for those with green fingers, as well as three seating areas, with side access and additional storage areas.
Upstairs, the property offers two spacious double bedrooms, and one smaller double. Two of the rooms benefit from bespoke fitted wardrobes, as well as further, feature fireplaces. The main family bathroom is spacious, featuring roll-top bath with shower above.
Additional benefits are provided in the form of Douglas-fir, wooden double glazing throughout, gas central heating, and a partially boarded loft space for additional storage.
Parking is provided in the form of a driveway for two-three vehicles, and a garage large enough to accommodate a transit van.
The property is within a short walk of village amenities to include the Hartley Country Club, the Co-Op and the Village Post-Office.
Reputable primary schools, including the "outstanding" Hartley Primary Academy, are also within walking distance. There are also school coach services providing access to Gravesend, Dartford and Wilmington Grammar schools.
The neighbouring village of Longfield offers a Waitrose supermarket and the closest train station, which provides a regular service to London Victoria in just over 30 minutes. For those who prefer a larger selection of shops, Bluewater Shopping Centre is within a 10-15 minute drive.
Ebbsfleet International is a great alternative for those who require a High-Speed link to London, which provides a service to Stratford International and St Pancras International (Kings Cross) in just 11 and 21 minutes respectively.
