THE PROPERTY
Tod Law is a splendid, comfortable and versatile country home with plenty of character in the hamlet of Rochester. The property is in an elevated position, set back from the road, providing magnificent southfacing views across the surrounding hills. The split level layout opens up the opportunity to tailor the accommodation to an individual style.

Tod Law is named after 205m Todlaw Hill which can be seen through all its south facing windows. Todlaw Hill is a non-access nature reserve which capped by a wood that is entirely enclosed by a gate free traditional drystone wall. As a result of this protection Todlaw Hill is home to foxes, Roe Deer and numerous bird species including two pairs of buzzards – all of which can be seen from the house. Increasingly rare red squirrels can occasionally be spotted in the area too and dark skies enjoyed.

The front door (which is rarely used) leads into a spacious hall with access to a bright and sunny dual aspect living room with a stone inglenook fireplace with solid fuel stove. The dining kitchen is comprehensively fitted and has an Aga and spectacular views. A boot/utilty room has a useful
back door.

There are 4 double bedrooms and a family bathroom leading off a spacious hall at first floor level with access to a pretty and secluded
south facing terrace garden off the
hall. The adaptability of the property is well demonstrated with the current use of a bedroom to a first floor sitting room, and a further bedroom currently used as a home office taking advantage of
connection to super fast fibreoptic
broadband.

OUTSIDE
Secluded cottage gardens lie to the south and east of the house. One level higher is a large parking area with log store/workshop with the gardens in all
extending to circa one and a half acres. The development site lies to the north of the drive. There is an area of wild garden to the south of the A69 which
presents all sorts of opportunities.
