‘Sindencroft’ is a well appointed, characterful and charming unlisted cottage, situated within the village of Great chart, having been extended over the years the internal accommodation now comprises two generous reception rooms, increasing the living space on the ground floor by approximately double. This charming cottage retains a lot of the original features, including exposed beams, joinery and decorate fireplaces. Within the dining room the fireplace has remained open, allowing for an open fire or wood burning stove to be installed, perfect for the chillier winter evenings. The location within the village is ideal, especially if being out in the open countryside if the lifestyle you’d like to lead. Behind the garden is Great Chart Playing Fields, whether you need dog walking routes, or children who want to run around, the playing fields are on your doorstep. Within a short walk of the house you can be in the middle of fields, following one of the many public footpaths will lead you to Godinton House & Gardens. The amenities within the village include a popular family friendly pub (The Swan & Dog) and Ashford Prep School. There is also Great Chart Cricket Club and a children’s play park at the end of the road. Further amenities are available within Singleton, including another pub (The Singleton Barn), convenience store/post office, takeaways, vets, doctors surgery and Great Chart Primary School. The gardens measure to around 170ft from the rear of the house and are mostly laid to lawn with a couple of mature fruit trees. The boundaries to the gardens are of mature hedgerow with a fence boundary to the rear with gate leading into the playing fields. There is a patio adjacent to the rear of the house and gated side access too. Within the garden is an outside WC within a brick-built outhouse, garden shed and greenhouse. In our opinion, this lovely cottage would be a perfect home for anyone looking to live the village lifestyle, close to amenities but far enough way you can enjoy the great outdoors. With there being no onward chain, you could be moved in quicker than you may think.
