An increasingly rare opportunity to purchase this former farm worker’s cottage, coming to the market for the first time in over 60 years. The semi-detached cottage has three bedrooms arranged over first and second floors. It now offers scope for further updating alteration and extension subject to planning permission. Cranbrook School catchment area.
The Property: The accommodation on the ground floor comprises; sitting room, a pretty double aspect room with windows to front and side and exposed brick open fireplace fitted with woodburning stove. A cottage door leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room with views out over the rear gardens and farmland beyond. The kitchen is simply fitted with wall and base units, inset sink, space for cooker and door giving access to the rear gardens. Located off the kitchen is a useful utility area, plumbed for a washing machine, and this leads to the downstairs shower room fitted with wc, wash hand basin and window with views to the side gardens. A separate door from the kitchen provides access to the stairs.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms. The first with views out over the rear gardens and farmland beyond and the second situated across the landing has views to the front and again a stunning outlook over undulating hills. This bedroom benefits from an en suite wc and airing cupboard fitted with an immersion heater. A second flight of stairs from the first floor landing takes you to the third bedroom which has been fitted with wood panelling throughout and also has fine views to the side over surrounding farmland.
Garden & Grounds: Outside the cottage is approached via a shared private driveway which leads to what is currently used as the rear of the property where there are two single garages, one of timber construction and one of concrete construction. The majority of the pretty cottage gardens lie to the side of the cottage and these include an area of vegetable garden and mature herbaceous borders with a small pretty wildlife pond.
The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and comprehensively enclosed with close board fencing. The current owners will be dismantling the outside kennels to take with them.
Services: LPG fired central heating, mains electricity and water, shared private drainage.
