To the first floor, there is a generous main bedroom with cloakroom and walk-in wardrobe, a smaller bedroom / study and a landing which gives access to the good size second floor attic bedroom. This attractive property would be ideal for anyone looking for a beautiful character cottage in the heart of Tenterden with, where everything is on the doorstep and yet, there is still a wonderful feeling of peace and calm.
The front door opens into a charming lounge with beautiful inglenook fireplace and wood burner. A large built-in cupboard to the side of the fireplace is ideal for cloaks storage. This room is open to a cosy snug area. Doors lead to the kitchen / dining area and staircase to the first floor.
Presently an extension to the lounge, this lovely space could be used in a number of different ways including as a formal dining area, library, reading room or study. A large under stairs cupboard accessed from this area houses the Boiler. The beautiful fireplace is currently not in use, but it may be possible to reinstate it, subject to obtaining the necessary expert advice.
Situated at the back of the house with views over the pretty garden is the lovely cottage style kitchen, which has a range of bespoke painted units with wooden worktops and a one bowl butler sink. A red two oven gas Aga makes a striking focal point, as does the part vaulted ceiling and beams. Space for dishwasher, under counter fridge and for a free standing furniture or upright fridge/freezer if desired. The fact that the kitchen is open to the dining area makes this a sociable space.
A good size dining area with cleverly fitted utility cupboards housing the washing machine to one end. A door gives access to a rear lobby.

A modern traditional style suite comprising: shower enclosure with glass sliding door; wash basin with storage cupboard below; WC and heated towel rail.
Wide stairs from the ground floor lead to a landing that gives access to the two bedrooms on the first floor and the stairs to the second floor. At the top of the stairs from the ground floor is a door which opens onto a generous loft space (unmeasured).
Bedroom 1 / Cloakroom
This lovely double aspect room has views over both the front and rear gardens. A feature fireplace makes an interesting focal point. To either side of this, the space has been used to its maximum potential. To one side is a useful cloakroom with WC and wash basin, and to the other, a walk-in wardrobe.
Bedroom 2 / Study
Currently set up as a study, this smaller of the two rooms on this floor would work equally well as a bedroom.
Second Floor / Bedroom 3
This lovely room, which could take three single beds, would be ideal for visiting grand children. It would work equally well as a hobby room or office space. Please note that there is some restricted head height to this room. To the end of this room is a large loft space which houses the water tank.
To the rear of the property is a beautiful part walled, enclosed hidden garden which is completely in keeping with the feel of the cottage. Directly at the back of the house is a south facing patio area, ideal for summer relaxation, and as you wind your way up the garden, you come to another patio which faces west and is made for those summer evenings sipping G and T's as the sun sets! The garden also benefits from a shed and side access gate.
