This attractive property, which has been a much-cherished home for a number of years is well maintained, but would now benefit from some updating and modernisation. There is huge scope here for someone to put their own mark on it and make a very special home. The plot size and layout certainly lend themselves to extension and reconfiguration if desired, subject of course to the necessary permissions. Internally, the property has generously proportioned, light, bright accommodation throughout, whilst outside, there are large level gardens to the front and back, an integral double garage and a driveway providing off-street parking for a number of vehicles. In addition, this property benefits from being set back in a nicely tucked away position, backing onto beautiful open countryside where there are many lovely views and walks to enjoy. The village centre and amenities on offer are just a short walk away and the Cinque Port towns of Rye and Tenterden are approximately 6 miles distant by car.
The front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall which forms the centre of the house. Stairs to first floor with under stairs cupboard. Space for free standing furniture
This spacious and very light double aspect room has large picture windows to the front and side. Double doors to the rear give access to the sitting / dining room beyond. A country style stone effect fireplace with open fire provides a focal point for the room.
Sitting / Dining Room
This very spacious, flexible room at present serves two functions as a dining room and sitting room. A large window at the back gives wonderful views over the garden, while a set of French doors to the side give access to the large patio at the back of the house.
The good size kitchen, which is situated at the back of the house, has enormous potential and could be the real heart of this home. There is certainly potential if desired, and subject of course to the necessary permissions, to knock through to the sitting / dining room to make a large open plan kitchen / family room or extend out at the back. The current kitchen although dated, has been very well looked after and is perfectly useable. There are a number of fitted wood units, both base and wall, with tiled worktops. One and a half bowl sink with drainer and mixer tap. Space for a dishwasher and under counter fridge. Built-in eye level electric oven and grill. A large window overlooking the garden also gives views over the grazing pasture beyond. Open doorway to rear lobby.
Rear lobby gives access to the utility room, cloakroom, garage and garden. Oil fired Boiler.
Comprises a corner wash basin with mixer tap and WC.
Currently set up as a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine, white goods, cloaks, boots and dogs, this generous area could work equally well as a study or home office.
Integral Double Garage
An internal door from the rear lobby very conveniently leads you into the spacious integral garage. An electrically operated garage door gives access from the drive. Window to rear. Power and light connected. NB: Due to its position, the garage has potential to be converted into additional living accommodation if desired and subject to the necessary permissions.
First Floor Landing
Stairs from the ground floor lead to a first floor landing where there is an airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. Doors to all three bedrooms and bathroom. Loft access. NB: Depending on the construction of the garage and utility room, which would need further investigation by suitable professionals, it may be possible to extend on top of these and gain access from the current landing.
