Found in the village of Staple is Piglet Place, a timber framed and weather boarded cottage which stands on a large plot in excess of 8 acres, surrounded by farmland. The main cottage has two bedrooms; one with an en-suite shower room, a family bathroom, lounge and kitchen/diner. There is also an annex which has been used as a games room but could provide a lounge/bedroom, shower room and kitchen/diner with additional utility/storage area. In addition, there is a large workshop attached to the cottage. Externally there is a driveway with off street parking. To the rear there is an in-ground swimming pool with solar heating and surrounded by patio, ideal for entertaining. The garden has a lawned area and then leads out to extensive woodland. The property offers a wealth of potential and is ideal for reconfiguration and extension, subject to the necessary planning consents.
N.B. There is electric heating. Gas is available in the road. There is an overage on the land for any future development at 50% of the value at the time planning is passed for a period of 50 years. Solicitors will confirm this. There is also currently a covenant preventing development in the woodland.
Staple is a delightful village with its own village hall, public house and historic church. The nearby villages of Ash and Wingham provide a variety of amenities and facilities and the Cathedral city of Canterbury is approximately 10 miles away where you will find a wide variety of shopping, dining and cultural facilities, as well as numerous leisure and sporting amenities. Canterbury also has a high-speed rail service to London St. Pancras in under an hour. In the other direction is the quaint Cinque port town of Sandwich with its boutique shops, bars and restaurants and home to Royal St. Georges Golf course which has been home to the British open on a number of occasions.
