Swinburn is a beautiful period cottage which has been lovingly restored to create a wonderful family home located in the highly sought-after village of Stourmouth. Set in a rural area with fantastic open space, stunning countryside and the lovely feel of a village community, the cottage backs onto orchards which stretch as far as the eye can see. The private gates open wide onto a long sweeping drive leading to the main house and two impressive oak clad outbuildings set into the generous plot.

The cottage has a lovely flow and gives a bright and airy feel; the ground floor offers many options to today’s family with multi-use function rooms. A good size dining room with duel fuel stove is positioned at the front of the house and leads into the generous farmhouse kitchen/diner creating that main family hub, with a useful utility space just to the side with its own entrance for those muddy boots days. The triple aspect lounge room is a good size and gives a fantastic space to relax and enjoy the beautiful views over surrounding countryside. Once upstairs a good size landing leads off to all bedrooms and bathrooms; the triple aspect master bedroom has the main position at the rear of the house to make the most of the spectacular views, and also has an adjacent shower room. The further three bedrooms have similarly beautiful aspects with access to a good size family bathroom with freestanding roll top bath.

The plot also has the added benefit of two very attractive, large outbuildings which are already functional storage and workshop spaces with power and water to both, but offer huge scope for further development. The landscaped grounds wrap around the property with mature planting, shrubs and lawns, with a secluded paved and enclosed area leading out from the kitchen. The property is a lovely family home, enveloped by beautiful countryside and surrounded by wildlife, but offers so much more potential with the land and buildings especially.
