    About this property

    • Found on Brenchley Road between the charming and sought-after villages of Matfield and Brenchley, Burlam is an attractive family home offering a wonderful opportunity for new owners to put their stamp on moving forward.

      The ground floor of this generously-proportioned home features a surprisingly spacious kitchen/dining room, fitted with high gloss cabinets providing an abundance of storage, together with a breakfast bar ideal for informal dining, and French doors opening to the brick terrace and rear garden beyond. The kitchen/dining room is open plan to the sitting room, creating a light and airy room with views to the rear garden via the kitchen.

      Currently, Burlam has been designed to include two of the four double bedrooms on the ground floor, both enjoying bay windows to the front. These rooms can be arranged to suit, perhaps as a hobby room or study, ideal for today's working from home requirements. A family bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation. The first floor is home to two further bedrooms, both of which are served by a further family shower room.

      Outside, the property boasts a generous and well-established garden, with an impressive range of trees, shrubs and plants, providing a wonderful sense of seclusion, together with a charming garden pond. There is a summer house positioned to the end of the garden, benefitting from electricity and a phone line. Additionally, there is a sizeable garage that can accommodate a car or serve as storage space, together with a brick paved driveway providing parking for up to two vehicles.

    Burlam provides what so many of us want, village life with easy access to nearby towns and amenities. I love that you can stroll into Matfield or nearby Brenchley and enjoy the immediate access to the surrounding countryside but you have choice of nearby towns when you need them. The best of both worlds.
