Full Details

Located in a wonderful rural location, along a country lane with stunning far-reaching views, an exciting opportunity to purchase a charming quintessentially three bedroom Kentish cottage with mature gardens of circa one third of an acre (un-measured) with garden office, set within easy reach of the M20 and the high-speed rail link at Ashford.

The accommodation comprises the following with approximate dimensions: LOBBY 5' 8" x 3' 0 max" (1.73m x 0.91m) The English oak front door opens into a useful lobby area with storage for boots and coats. Opens to:

DINING AREA 12' 5" x 9' 7" (3.78m x 2.92m) This area is an extremely versatile space, currently set up as a music room, it could serve a number of functions and being open to the sitting room and conservatory on either side means that it is ideal for entertaining your family and friends.

SITTING ROOM 16' 3" x 12' 3 max" (4.95m x 3.73m) This welcoming sitting room with its brick fireplace and open fire exudes warmth and is a delightful place to spend cosy winter evenings. Built-in cupboard & bookcase to left side of fireplace. Stairs to first floor. Door to breakfast room/study.

BREAKFAST ROOM / STUDY 8' 3" x 5' 11" (2.51m x 1.8m) Currently used as a breakfast room, this charming space would also work well as a study or hobby area. A short corridor leads to the cloakroom and kitchen.

CLOAKROOM 4' 10" x 2' 9" (1.47m x 0.84m) Handy cloakroom with wc. and corner wash basin.

KITCHEN 10' 11" x 9' 6" (3.33m x 2.9m) The stylish contemporary high gloss kitchen gives a modern twist to this period cottage. There are a range of base units with laminate worktops and matching wall cupboards. The one and a half bowl sink positioned with views over the garden is a lovely place to wash up!
Integrated cooking range, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine, and boiler. A beautiful Chinese slate floor connects the kitchen with the breakfast room at one end and to the other, the conservatory.

CONSERVATORY 14' 8" x 10' 9" (4.47m x 3.28m) The conservatory gives 180-degree views of the beautiful gardens. This space, which is large enough for both a dining table and comfy seating, is the perfect place to have a morning coffee and read the paper, enjoy lunch or dinner or simply relax. Electric under-floor heating with two additional wall heaters.

FIRST FLOOR LANDING 11' 2" x 7' 2 max" (3.4m x 2.18m) Pretty galleried landing with an exposed brick feature wall and a large walk-in cupboard containing the loft hatch.

BEDROOM 1 12' 6" x 9' 9" (3.81m x 2.97m) This lovely double aspect bedroom has wonderful far reaching countryside views to the North Downs. Although the current owners have opened up this bedroom in to bedroom 3, to create a connected dressing area, it would be very easy to reinstate the partition wall. NB: The door to bedroom 3 and the windows for that room are still in place.

BEDROOM 2 11' 2" x 10' 5 max" (3.4m x 3.18m) A pretty, light double bedroom with glorious views to the front and good amounts of built-in storage.

SHOWER ROOM 14' 0" x 6' 0 max" (4.27m x 1.83m) An elegant traditional style shower room comprising large shower cubicle, basin on ornate iron stand, low level w.c and heated towel rail. Space for large piece of free standing furniture or bath if desired. Underfloor heating in the shower area.

GARDEN OFFICE (15' 8'' x 9'1'') A professional garden office, purpose-built in timber with dual aspect double glazed windows and double doors. Insulated and carpeted with heating and lighting as well as internet access. Ideal for homeworkers, crafters or hobbyists.

A sunken patio area beside the conservatory is ideal for al fresco dining, while a large pond, which not only provides a focal point, is also somewhere calm to sit and contemplate. And for the times when you are feeling more energetic, a number of raised vegetable beds, a green-house, and polytunnel at the top end of the garden will keep you busy!

A driveway at the front provides parking for at least three cars beside a feature brick wall. Three separate gates take you through to a beautifully landscaped mature cottage garden of circa 1/3rd of an acre (unmeasured) that would be a haven for children, gardeners and wildlife lovers alike.

SERVICES Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.

AGENTS NOTE * We are advised that the vendors of this property have previously made tentative enquiries about building a detached 3-bedroom bungalow in the garden. This may be a possibility in the future, subject of course to the necessary permissions.
* The property has a flying freehold.
