Victorian elegance personified, this magnificent Grade II Listed detached home occupies a prominent position, looking onto a green featuring the Dockyards flag-mast and views of the River Medway beyond, enjoying the peace and tranquility of this historic setting, only interrupted by the Dockyard clock chiming the hour.
Dating from the 1830's, Captains House sits proudly as a detached residence to the far end of a terrace of 12 properties known as Officers Terrace, all originally constructed by the Admiralty to provide homes and offices for the principle Officers of the Dockyard. In more recent years the current owners have sympathetically updated the property, whilst retaining the character and architectural integrity of this beautiful historic home.
Internally the residence affords a generous and incredibly versatile living accommodation, with 6416 sq/ft. Throughout the property there remains striking evidence of its past, with quite stunning fireplaces, a functioning dumb waiter and timber framed sash windows, many complimented by wooden shutters. Appointed over five floors the property is currently configured with a total of 9 bedrooms.
The ground floor offers a sense of occasion with an impressive entrance hall, opening to substantial drawing/reading rooms, both featuring open fire places and oversized timber sash windows providing an abundance of light and affording views of the dockyard. A formal dining room, (currently being used as a living room), presides in the room adjacent with high ceilings, an open fire place with inset log burner and a swing door to the original butlers pantry, still exhibiting a working dumb waiter. A dedicated study and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
The lower ground floor hosts an impressive and well equipped bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga/integrated double oven, butler style sink, granite work surfaces and an engineered oak floor. The dining room is located in the adjoining room whilst a dedicated utility room further enhances this area of the home. Across the hall there is a dedicated bar/games room, various storage rooms and a cloakroom providing convenience.
The master bedroom is enhanced by luxurious en-suite facilities, exhibiting a freestanding roll-top bathtub set upon ball and claw feet, a walk-in shower enclosure and twin wash hand basins. The remaining bedrooms benefit from either garden or river views and are served by bath/shower rooms located on each floor.
A wrought iron gate opens to an impeccably well kept walled garden. A brick pathway bisects tiered lawns with prolifically well stocked beds softening the boarders, exhibiting a host of specimen trees, shrubbery and herbaceous plants. To the rear of the garden a third and final tier benefits from having a summer house, opening to a well positioned terrace. Pathways dressed in fine shingle lead through juxtaposed flower beds, themselves hosting an array of flowers, roses and herbaceous plants.
Three dedicated/allocated parking spaces are assigned to the property, whilst additional/informal parking is also available.
Although located within a quiet tucked away position, the historic Chatham Dockyard is ideally situated close to local amenities, restaurants, pubs and the cinema within Chatham Marina. The City of Rochester and Chatham Town Centre are easily accessed along with excellent schooling for all ages including independents.
Fantastic road links via M2/A2 motorways and M25 link to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports, London, Bluewater and International railway station at Ebbsfleet offering a 17 minute link to London and Europe. The commuter service is well served with main line railway services from Chatham providing fast and convenient access to Stratford, St Pancras, London Bridge and Cannon Street.
