THE PROPERTY

Situated centrally within its grounds, Little Bleet is a substantial Purbeck stone house with Portland stone quoins and part timber clad elevations under a pitched slate and tile roof. Completed in 2014 to an imaginative design, with high quality finishes and meticulous attention to detail, Little Bleet has sensibly configured accommodation with attractive stone mullion windows. The rooms are well proportioned, and all have aluminium coated double glazed windows. The kitchen/living room is part vaulted with a fully glazed facade creating a wonderful space with a mezzanine principal bedroom above. The kitchen is well equipped with a Siemens induction hob, Miele double ovens and a plate warming drawer. From the kitchen is a large and well fitted pantry/utility room. To the west elevation are bifold glazed doors which open out onto a paved terrace. The property has stone flooring throughout the ground floor with the exception of the sitting room. Other attributes include mechanical ventilation, high levels of insulation, photovoltaic panels, heating via a ground source heat pump resulting in a real emphasis on thermal efficiency. The property is approached off the lane through timber gates onto a tarmac drive adjoining which is the timber clad triple garage with staircase to a potential office/annexe over (subject to planning consent). Little Bleet stands in the centre of its gardens which are laid to lawn for ease of maintenance and at the front bordered by mature trees including beech and hazel. To the side of Little Bleet is a large paved terrace which can be accessed from both the hall and kitchen/living room. The terrace has a brick built BBQ and pizza oven. There is a greenhouse and a gravelled area suitable for boules. PROPERTY INFORMATION Services: Mains water and electricity, private treatment plant; ground source heat pump, photovoltaic panels.

Little Bleet is situated on the edge of Madjeston lying to the south of Gillingham, which has the facilities for most everyday needs, including a range of shops, a Waitrose supermarket, banks, sports centre, doctor and dentist surgeries, library, schools and churches and a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo and the West Country.
