On the instructions of the Trustees

A truly outstanding opportunity having been owned by the Trustees for many years comprising a substantial, extended property built as a family home in 1864, standing on a large walled plot with frontages to Maidstone Road, Albert Road and Baker Street.

It is considered that the existing accommodation, which is extensive and covers three floors, has potential for conversion or use as a House in Multiple Occupation, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

The garden has potential for development, again subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.

This is a rare find indeed, lying in the ME1 postcode area, and is conveniently located for the centre of the historic high street with castle and cathedral and the mainline commuter railway station.
