Arranged over three floors, this lovely cottage exudes character and charm, but also has everything needed for modern living, including a stylish fitted kitchen, two high-end traditional style bathrooms, a downstairs cloakroom and plenty of storage space. In addition, there is a large sitting room with beautiful working inglenook fireplace, a dining area which opens onto the kitchen and outdoor courtyard area beyond, three bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, and a bonus space on the first floor, currently set up as a study cum office. Outside, the pretty south facing courtyard has a built-in BBQ and summerhouse, and we are advised that a parking space to the side of the cottage is for the sole private use of this property. This charming cottage would make the ideal home for a buyer wishing to be in the heart of town, close to all the local amenities. Alternatively, its central location on possibly the most picturesque lane in Tenterden would make it the ideal holiday let, which it has been run successfully as in the past by a previous owner. Internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the deceptive amount of space, character and warmth on offer here.
The front door opens into a charming, but very spacious sitting room with beautiful working inglenook fireplace. A large built-in cupboard to the side of the fireplace is ideal for storage. A door leads to the kitchen / dining area.
Situated at the back of the house with views over the pretty courtyard garden is the modern fully fitted kitchen, which has a range of shaker style units with worktops and one and a half bowl sink with drainer. Boiling water tap, waste disposer. Two built-in AEG ovens (one a micro/combi oven), an AEG electric induction hob with extractor above, integrated refrigerator, dishwasher and washing machine. Tiled floor with electric under floor heating that extends into the dining area. The fact that the kitchen is open to the dining area makes this a very sociable space.
The dining area, which is open to the kitchen, also gives access to the first floor. An internal door opens into a cloakroom area and an external stable door leads you out into the rear garden.
This useful space not only houses a WC and basin with storage below, but also provides storage for cloaks, boots and additional white goods. The boiler is housed in this area.
First Floor Study
Stairs from the ground floor lead to a useful landing area, currently set up as a study with a large fitted desk with laminate top and built-in shelving to either side. This space could work equally well as a home office or dressing area to the main bedroom. Doors lead you through to the main bedroom and give access to the staircase to the second floor.
This lovely double bedroom, with its feature fireplace, large built-in cupboard and very generous en-suite bathroom, is a lovely place to retire to at the end of the day.
This very generous traditional style modern en-suite consists of: panelled bath with shower over; corner shower cubicle; vanity unit with storage under; back to wall WC and heated towel rail. Bidet. Stone tiled floor with electric under floor heating. Large airing cupboard housing hot water cylinder.
This pretty single bedroom is bursting with charm. Window to front.
Second Floor - Bedroom 2
Stairs from the first floor lead up to a generous attic space that has been converted into a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Built-in storage and eaves space (unmeasured). NB: There is some restricted head height to this floor.
A traditional style modern bathroom consisting of: free standing claw foot bath with mixer tap and hand held shower attachment; pedestal wash basin; WC and heated towel rail. Tiled floor.
To the front of the property are well stocked flower beds set behind a white picket fence, in the middle of which is a gate that leads you through to the front door. To the side of the house is a parking space which we are advised is solely for the use of this cottage, and to the rear is a brick paved south facing courtyard garden which has mature planting, a built-in BBQ and timber summer house. NB: There is a pedestrian right of way across the back of the cottage to the neighbouring properties.
We understand there is a small flying freehold with the attached property.
