This picturesque valley has a charm that belies its convenient location on the edge of Maidstone. Delightful accommodation makes this a fabulous home to choose!
Wandering the footpaths of the Hayle Park Nature Reserve and strolling back down through woodland to Hayle Mill Road, you find yourself imagining what life in this picturesque valley would have been like at the height of paper manufacturing in Maidstone.
For nearly two centuries the Green family produced handmade paper from Hayle Mill, up until 1987. Back then this would have been a busy, working area on the edge of 'Paper City' as some suggest Maidstone was once referred to. Today, a drive into this small valley gives a very different feel, a sense of escape from the county town and yet there's a proximity that means life here is incredibly practical. Water cascades and cottages glide by as you gently navigate your way to this home we are showing you, one that was completed in 2008 as a new addition to a development that sits behind electric gates.
Pull in to one of the visitor parking bays and beside you are green spaces and the stream running by, tables and chairs hint already of lovely times spent in this wonderful setting. A parking space in the 'undercroft' is home to the owners vehicle.
This end of terrace home has a sense of class and practicality, immediately obvious and you'll straight away sense how much our client has enjoyed life here. Carefully planned planting and seating turns the front garden into a morning delight, somewhere to sit and relax, to grab a quiet moment or sit with friends for a chat. When the sun has moved round to the rear garden this area gives respite from the heat and if you want to follow the golden rays, the rear garden is delightfully arranged as well to make for beautiful relaxation and a place to dine al fresco.
The home flows easily together, from that front seating area you can step through french doors into the kitchen, a perfectly appointed space that opens into the sitting room which provides space for a table. A further set of French Doors let you move almost seamlessly into the rear garden and provides that flow we mentioned, it also highlights why this is such an easy home to lock up and disappear away on a trip from, safe in the knowledge you need worry about little at all. The hallway provides storage and a cloakroom, the practical parts of life and upstairs a stylish bathroom greets you as do two lovely bedrooms, the master sporting an ensuite.
This is a home that perfectly suits dog lovers, the walks are great, it suits those who want somewhere to escape yet love being close to all that Maidstone offers with shops, cinema and transport links. It also is perfect for those with a roving heart, people who enjoy spending time away but love to come back to a special place.Get in touch if you like this home.
