Formerly one of four farm cottages, built in the early 1800s and situated on the outskirts of Maidstone, is this beautiful characterful home.
Stepping foot in the cottage you are greeted with a generous sized entrance hall with parquet flooring and under the stairs storage cupboard.
Off the hall is one of the two reception rooms which has been neutrally and thoughtfully decorated by the current owner. There are windows at the front and rear of the room along with alcoves and a multi fuel burner. This room is flooded with natural light leading through to the conservatory.
The conservatory is accessed from the sitting room and sits across the width of the property, providing a lovely space to enjoy for most months of the year. It is double glazed and has double doors leading into the garden.
Flowing round nicely on the ground floor you are led into the second reception room and the kitchen. The second reception room has ample space and can seat up to eight people if needed. It really is a great space for those who enjoy entertaining. The kitchen has plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher, single stainless steel oven, four ring gas hob and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer.
The dog-leg staircase is off the entrance hall and at the top of the stairs is the Vaillant combi-boiler, providing central heating and hot water.
There are three bedrooms upstairs: two of them benefitting from built in storage. Stunning views of Kent can be admired from the bedrooms to the rear.
The third bedroom is currently used as a dressing room/single guest room. There are pleasant views from this window, across wooded hills.
