A charming Grade II Listed village cottage, built in the 17th century with a wealth of period features throughout including exposed beams and original fireplaces, located close to the centre of Sundridge village. The cottage is set over three floors with Kentish ragstone and brick walls, timber windows and clay tiles on the upper elevations and roof.
The entrance door opens into the large split-level reception room where a stunning inglenook fireplace with brass hood takes centre stage. The room has carpeted floors and is dual aspect with a pleasant leafy outlook to the front and views over the garden to the rear. The vendors currently use the upper level as a home office space but it could be used as a dining area depending on personal preference. There is also a handy built-in storage cupboard beside the inglenook.
Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where the kitchen and bathroom are located. The kitchen is fitted with a range of contemporary handle-less white wall and base units with gloss laminate worktops and stylish patterned tile splashback. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, electric oven, microwave, ceramic hob and a fridge freezer all from from Siemens. There is a utility area with space for a washing machine and wood effect floors that flow into the bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with a traditional white suite, panelled bath with shower attachment over and patterned wall tiles.
Upstairs the first floor landing leads to two good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom located at the back of the property has a particularly low door which only adds to the quirky character of this wonderful old building.
The property has all mains services connected with mains gas central heating and a modern combi boiler.
Planning permission is in place for the erection of single storey rear extension, providing an open plan kitchen/dining / living space to the upper ground floor.
The property is accessed down a cobbled path to the right hand side of the building. A small set of stone step leads to a wrought iron gate which gives access into the garden and leads to the rear door of the house which is the primary entrance used by the current vendors. There is an alternative front door entrance accessed directly from Church Road although this is not currently in use.
The delightful garden located at the rear of the property is south west facing and has been transformed by the current vendors involving significant groundworks. It is mainly laid to lawn with stepped tiers and offers plenty of space for children to play or just to relax and enjoy the afternoon sun. The borders are fully enclosed with a combination of attractive white picket fencing, brick wall and timber panels. It has been designed for low maintenance with gravel edging to one side and a few herbaceous shrubs providing additional colour.
On road parking is available at the bottom of Church Road with further spaces available around the corner on Chapmans Road.
