About the property

It is not just about the convenient location - this property has character too.
Believed to have been built in 1926 for the manager of the railway works and although trains are no longer built in Ashford, they certainly run from here - commuting to London via HS1 only takes 37 minutes, and Paris is only two hours away via Eurostar

The owner has commuted for 20 years, taking advantage of Ashford's excellent links. He can assure you the station is only a brisk 15 minute walk away. The high speed is to St Pancras, although a regular service also runs to Charing Cross, Victoria and Cannon Street. Two Primary schools, St Teresas and St Marys are very close by as is Highworth Grammar School for Girls. The boy's grammar and the North School are an approximate 20 minute walk away.

Pinecroft occupies a prominent, slightly elevated position, on the corner of Upper Queens and Magazine Road. Gardens wrap around the property. The rear garden has a southwesterly aspect and mature planting provides a high degree of seclusion. In 2012 the garden was professional designed and landscaped. In the road there are resident parking bays, and to the rear, accessed off Magazine Road, an additional parking space in front of the single garage.

Lapsed planning to extend the property under ref 09/01098/AS, can be viewed on the Ashford Borough Council Planning portal. This is to convert the old garage and build above, giving an additional reception room and fifth bedroom. The house, even without an extension, is large, offering four bedrooms, one with en suite, separate sitting and dining rooms, and a kitchen breakfast room with solid oak cupboards and an enviable Lacanche Range (that will remain). The house has a working and original internal calling system. Read more
