Having been refurbished throughout over the last 14 years, the current owners have created a unique home where the character features blend seamlessly with contemporary design and stylish finishing touches.
The property is approached via steps from the lane with a path leading to double doors which open to an enclosed entrance porch. The front door leads to the dining room which is currently set up as a generous entrance hall. There is an attractive feature fireplace and windows to the front and side provide a delightful outlook of the garden. There are wooden floorboards underfoot and beams overhead, and a step up to the main living area. Here the open fire with log burning stove takes centre stage, and there are further windows overlooking the garden. The wooden floorboards continue into the breakfast room which has a vaulted ceiling with velux windows as well as a window and back door opening to the garden. Part of the original flint wall is exposed creating a striking feature. From here a door leads to the third bedroom/study. This has a vaulted ceiling with a velux window and a fitted carpet. On the other side of the breakfast room a door leads to the kitchen, which has been updated with cream base units with a worktop over. There is a large butler sink and space for plenty of appliances, a vaulted ceiling and two windows overlooking the garden. A door from the dining room leads to a lobby where there is a cloakroom, completing the ground floor accommodation.
Stairs from the lobby lead to the first floor landing where there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The front bedroom benefits from dual aspect windows which boast a glorious view of the River Darent flowing past. The back bedroom overlooks the garden, and both have built-in wardrobes and access to the loft. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising a bath with shower over, a pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC.
The gardens are a wonderful feature of the property. At the front of the cottage, a paved courtyard garden leads around the side of the house to the main area of garden. This is largely laid to lawn, with a patio running adjacent to the side of the house creating a sheltered seating area perfect for al fresco dining. The garden is well established with a variety of mature shrubs and trees, and a gravel path through the centre leads to a five bar gate, through which there are two garages and further off-road parking.
Properties in this location are rarely available this pretty period cottage would be ideal for anyone wishing to embrace country life, yet with the convenience of amenities close by the owner tells us Eynsford Station is approximately 12 minutes walk away.
