A wonderful Victorian end of terrace cottage with large mature gardens, along a quiet country lane in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but still within easy reach of local villages, the M20 and the high-speed rail link at Ashford. To the rear is a useful brick outbuilding, timber potting shed/store and large mature garden which certainly offers further potential, subject of course to the necessary permissions.
We understand that No.2 Forstal Cottages has a right of pedestrian access to the rear of their property via the path at the side and rear of number 3.
Dimensions: 8' 9" x 4' 7 max" (2.67m x 1.4m). A contemporary shower room comprising: wet room style walk-in shower; basin on wooden plinth; heated towel rail and low level w.c. Tiled floor and walls. Window to side.
Dimensions: 14' 3" x 9' 3 max" (4.34m x 2.82m). This beautiful double bedroom has a very calming feel which is certainly enhanced by the wonderful far reaching countryside views from the window to the front. Feature fireplace.
Dimensions: 5' 2" x 4' 7 max" (1.57m x 1.4m). Stairs from the ground floor lead to a small landing where there is room for a dressing table or desk. Loft hatch. Doors to bedroom 1 and shower room.
Set well back from the lane, the cottage is approached over a long path that leads you through the very pretty front garden which is completely in keeping with the character of the cottage. A gate takes you through to the rear of the property where there is a useful brick outbuilding (approximate dimensions 8'1 x 3'9) immediately outside the back door, housing logs, a washing machine and dryer. A further path takes you up to the large mature garden which is separated into two parts and would be a haven for children, gardeners, dogs and wildlife lovers alike. In addition, there is a good size timber outbuilding currently used for storage (approximate dimensions 11'5 x 7'9).
Dimensions: 14' 3" x 9' 6 max" (4.34m x 2.9m). A light and airy spacious double bedroom with window to the rear and built-in over stairs cupboard.

KITCHEN / BREAKFAST ROOM
Dimensions: 13' 9" x 11' 10 max" (4.19m x 3.61m). A door from the sitting room leads to the pretty cottage kitchen, which is both beautiful and functional. There are a range of shaker style units with block-wood worktops. Space for washing machine and free standing fridge/freezer. Integrated slimline dishwasher and AEG electric oven with hob and extract above. A breakfast bar makes a lovely place to sit, chat over a coffee, eat or work. There would, however, be room for a freestanding table and chairs if desired if this breakfast bar was removed. A feature exposed brick wall and Victorian fireplace add to the country cottage feel in this space. Window and external door to rear. Stairs to first floor.
Dimensions: 13' 10" x 13' 9 max" (4.22m x 4.19m). The front door opens into a most welcoming, and deceptively spacious sitting room. A Victorian fireplace with working open fire gives a cosy focal point. Built-in cupboards to both sides of fireplace. Stripped pine floorboards. Door to kitchen / breakfast room.
