Beech Cottage is a rarely available 3 bedroom semi-detached cottage set in the heart of a beautiful Kentish village. The property would benefit from refurbishment to provide a charming village home, set in a glorious garden and having the benefit of a brick garage and off-street parking.
The accommodation offers significant opportunity for improvement to provide both additional ground floor living (subject to planning) and enhancement. All of the accommodation overlooks the cottage style garden and offers period features including original leaded light lattice windows, some original timberwork and a delightful period fireplace.
The first floor includes three bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The garden is a particular feature of the property and is a good size offering a purchaser the chance to enhance the property to enjoy the mature planting. There are some superb mature trees and shrubs, including a spectacular magnolia tree.
The detached brick built garage is set to the side of the neighbouring cottage and has an area of hard standing to the front which provides off-street parking for one car.
The property sits in the picturesque village of Ickham with its fine period buildings, church and highly regarded public house. The adjoining village of Wickhambreaux also has a church and public house, together with a primary school.
