LOCATED IN THE SEMI RURAL ROAD OF MOUNT ROAD, SOUTH BENFLEET, YOU WILL FIND THIS PROPERTY RIGHT AT THE END BEFORE THE FOOTPATH.
BUILT IN THE LATE 1800'S: IF YOU LIKE PERIOD PROPERTIES, THIS HAS EVERYTHING.
A secret Victorian garden, wooden stair case with viewing gallery, log burner in the lounge, bedrooms with en-suites under the main property, cellars and of course the 2 acres of grounds stretching in to Thundersley Glen.
STILL WITH SOME OF ITS ORIGINAL FEATURES BUT BEING UPDATED TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD, THIS IS ONE OF FEW PROPERTIES THAT CAN CROSS BOTH TIME PERIODS AND LOOK FANTASTIC.
YOU WALK TO THE FRONT OF THE PROPERTY AND ARE FACED WITH A GATED PRIVATE DRIVE AND GARAGE. When you enter the main building, you walk into the original ENTRANCE HALL with its stone floor and Dickensian wooden staircase leading to the MAIN BEDROOM. You enter the good sized KITCHEN-DINER, with its tremendous space and granite worktops - no expense has been spared.
The cross over with Victorian and modern does not go amiss in this LOUNGE ROOM with wooden beams in the ceiling and a wood burner. There is a DINING ROOM/FIFTH BEDROOM, which again offers great living space and good versatility. Along the corridor, you have a further two good sized DOUBLE BEDROOMS ( one being used as a games room) and a FAMILY BATHROOM. On the first floor you have the MASTER BEDROOM with its own dressing area, built-in furniture and luxury shower EN-SUITE.
This is where the property gets exciting. On leaving the main building and walking down the side, you find a door leading into the FOURTH BEDROOM. Offering large living space, you also have a shower EN-SUITE.
On the other side you have a UTILITY ROOM, offering space for appliances and good storage space at the rear. You also have a SUMMERHOUSE and purpose built OFFICE, in this day of Covid, a home office is essential.
The current vendors added the wooden decking, overlooking the REAR GARDEN. You have the 'VICTORIAN GARDEN', where you can go to reflect and recuperate.
THIS PROPERTY WOULD FIT INTO A PERIOD FILM AND GIVE THE DESIRED EFFECT, BUT CAN ALSO CROSS INTO THE WORLD OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGN. OUR DESCRIPTION AND PHOTOS ONLY TELL HALF THE STORY. TO GET THE REAL FEEL OF THESE TRULY OUTSTANDING BUILDINGS, CALL FISKS ESTATE AGENTS.

This pleasant area incorporates a walled space, which encloses some laid to lawn areas and seats to come and relax. The vendors believe this garden was made at the time of the initial first build of the property in the late 1890's.
