This five bedroom family home provides accommodation extending to 2720 sq ft.

There are four further double bedrooms and family bathroom/wc. Outside the well manicured lawns leads to substantial gardens and barn, currently used as a gym.
Location Cliffe Woods is a thriving rural village with local facilities, doctor and outstanding Ofsted primary school. The City of Rochester and town of Strood offer further shopping facilities together with high speed trains into major London Railway Stations with good road links to the A2/M2 and the M25 motorways.
Directions From A2 coast bound take the A289 and continue on the Halsted Road, take the Cliffe/Wainscott turnoff B2000. On entering Cliffe Woods follow the road through Cliffe Woods, once past the garage on your right hand side, take the second turning right into Merryboys Road where the property will be found a short way along on the right hand side
Vendor Interview High Beech sits in a peaceful rural location on the fringe of Cliffe Woods, a dormitory village on the Hoo Peninsula which separates the estuaries of the rivers of Thames and Medway. As one of a row of four individually designed houses built in 1973, the property has been extensively extended and modernised to a high-standard. We’ve created an easy-to-maintain home with great additions such as an orangery, fifth bedroom, wet room, large gym/office/workshop, and more. It’s totally up-to-date and the next owners won’t need to do a thing. The location is fantastic; positioned in a quiet country lane with walks right on the doorstep, yet the village centre is just a short stroll away. It’s only a 10-minute drive to Rochester, which has excellent amenities, including main-line services to London and the coast. Bluewater is only a 15-minute drive away.’
‘It’s a good-sized family home with excellent proportions. The large garden provides all-day sun – such a lovely place to sit and relax.’
‘We’ve enjoyed the rural location – you can walk out the front door and be in the countryside in no time, and the farmer opposite kindly allows villagers to use his farm and fields to walk dogs. It’s a safe and friendly neighbourhood where you can choose to get involved in the community, or just keep yourself to yourself. It’s very relaxed.’
‘There’s a highly rated primary school in the village, several shops, a fish and chip shop and an Indian takeaway, doctors surgery, village hall and a social club. There are good bus services which link the village to a variety of other local schools.’
‘We’ve spent a long time developing each room to its best potential, but if pushed we’d have to say that the kitchen/dining is our favourite. It’s a great social area large enough for all the family to get together but cosy enough for just the two of us to wind down at the end of a busy day.’
‘This has been a very happy home where we’ve enjoyed bringing up our family, however now our daughters have grown-up it’s time to downsize.’
