DESCRIPTION Ridgelands is a private road comprising an original house and seven similar contemporary houses and bungalow, built we understand in the 1970's in a tucked away and secluded setting within walking distance of the village centre. The houses were built in a staggered formation and all enjoy an attractive outlook over the communal gardens with views beyond over the Medway Valley. 3 Ridgelands has brick elevations under a sloping tiled roof. Internally the accommodation is split level and considered to be light and airy in particular the part vaulted double aspect Sitting Room. The house has been extended to the rear providing a double aspect Breakfast/Garden Room.

To the rear of the house is a private garden area with direct access to the delightful parklike communal grounds including childrens play area. As a result of the staggered layout the house is set to the front of its plot and therefore benefits from one of the longer rear gardens.
