This quintessentially English cottage is beautifully secluded on a quiet road, surrounded by picturesque Kent countryside.
With a pretty garden opening into allotment gardens to grow your own fruit and vegetables, you could easily forget that you are close to excellent transport links, popular schools and the bustling town centre.
A neat painted brick exterior with part glazed garage and entrance doors welcome you in.
The living room which delivers fabulous relaxing and entertaining space is effortlessly charming with an exposed brick chimney breast with log burning stove and warm wooden flooring contrasting beautifully with the neutral walls. Its windows bring in lots of natural light with internal ones borrowing yet more light from the kitchen behind. A unique floor trap door gives access to the spacious cellar, offering lots of storage options.
To the rear is the pretty country kitchen with an abundance of cream wooden cabinetry, topped with wooden work surfaces. There is an integrated slimline dishwasher and space for a large range oven and other freestanding appliances. Its window sits above the butler sink and it opens into the dining space to the side, the flagstone tiling linking the spaces seamlessly.
The dining area has plenty of room for a table and chairs and being open to the kitchen it means that you can chat to friends and family as you prepare dinner. The L shaped room also offers family space at the rear that offers garden views, its bi-fold doors extending the living space into the garden in the warmer months.
A lobby at the front gives access to a useful guest cloakroom and the integral garage that has lighting and electricity and room for additional appliances.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two doubles, all flooded with light from their pretty windows. A stylish and contemporary family bathroom with separate shower cubicle completes the first floor.
The pretty garden lies to the rear, safely self-contained for pets and children. A paved terrace lies at the rear of the house for summer dining and the mostly lawned garden lies gently raised, bordered by wooden fencing and stocked flower beds. A wooden shed provides storage and a wooden gate at the back gives access onto the allotment gardens behind.
This beautiful home is immaculate and brimming with character. It is also well placed for commuters being just 1.9 miles from the local mainline station with excellent rail links to central London. A must see!
