Court Cottage is a beautifully presented 3 bedroom cottage and a fine example of its time. The property has been completely and sympathetically restored creating a most charming character cottage which boasts a wealth of attractive features. In all set in a pretty cottage garden of just over 0.5 acre.
Formerly a timber framed Hall House; the exterior is of Flemish brick bond with central chimney stack and a Kent peg tiled roof with an attractive cat slide to one side featuring three dormer windows to the rear. Inside, a fitted solid wood kitchen by Thoroughly Wood of Lyminge leads to an inner hall and sewing room with heavy exposed beam, vaulted ceiling and a panel window to the front overlooking the gardens and church beyond. Off the inner hall is a drawing room with impressive inglenook fireplace, Bressumer beam and wood burner. Through the drawing room is the equally characterful study which could be used as a dining room. In addition on the ground floor, there is a fabulous oak framed, exposed brick and glazed conservatory with double doors leading out onto a patio, a practical utility room and garage/hobbies room with two sets of double opening horse box style garage doors. On the first floor is a beautiful master bedroom with stripped wooden flooring, medieval windows and red brick feature fireplace. There are two further well presented double bedrooms again with stripped flooring. Completing the first floor are an elegantly fitted ensuite shower room with walk in shower and mosaic tiling and a family bathroom incorporating a roll top bath and separate shower unit.
In addition to the oil fired central heating system, there is electric under floor heating to the ground floor and the two bathrooms.
