3 bedroom Character Property - Detached for sale

Sold Subject To Contract

Myrtle Cottage is a delightful three to four bedroom, Grade II listed period (15th-16th century) property set within an expansive L-shaped plot with an abundance of character and many charming features, including two inglenook fireplaces (each with a wood burner). It has been lovingly updated to create a comfortable home and includes a substantial timber-framed detached double-storey Lodge in the grounds, housing a double garage and a large family room above. A gated area of hard gravel standing at its front contains large wood stores and is sufficient to park three cars. Beautiful mature gardens surround the property at front and back and enhance the private and tranquil setting.

On entering the property from the front you encounter a generous dining room to the left that flows into the double reception room full of traditional character with exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace. On the right, there is a good size study/snug with a beautiful aspect out onto the front garden. There is also a brick lined cellar, which doubles as a pantry with storage for food and wine.

The kitchen is just off the reception rooms and is L-shaped with a large galley style preparation and cooking area and quarry tiled floor that leads into a generous breakfast room at one end, and at the other a downstairs WC by the back door leading into the garden. The base units are topped with granite work surfaces. From the garden the rear exterior of the house presents with medieval beams and a charming expanse of old Kent-peg rooftops.

Upstairs are three generous bedrooms each with a beautiful view of the gardens, packed with original features and exposed beams. A large family bathroom is at the end of the corridor with a separate shower, bath and WC.
