This 3 bedroom character home is well presented throughout with a wealth of original features, boasting stunning countryside views as well as a large garden, driveway and separate home office.

Starting in the main living room, here you can imagine yourself during the winter curled up in front of the feature log burning stove whilst admiring the far reaching views, watching the wildlife through the window and stable door in the meadows beyond.

Beautiful wooden flooring flows through the living room through a set of double doors into the formal dining room. With space for a table to seat eight and French doors out into the garden this is the perfect room for entertaining, conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen.

The kitchen itself has been fitted with a range of ‘shaker’ style wall and base units topped with solid pine worktops very much in keeping with the country charm of the property. There is a built-in double oven with grill, 4 ring gas hob and a delightful white enamel sink and drainer where you would be forgiven for being distracted from the washing up by the views out over the garden and rolling countryside. The kitchen has plenty of space for a breakfast table and direct access into the front garden via another stable door.

Through the kitchen you come to the utility and boot room, a must have for when you have been out exploring the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that surrounds the property.

The staircase to the first floor is located off the dining room and leads up to the landing, which boasts two storage cupboards and provides access to the three bedrooms as well as the family bathroom. The smallest of which is still a good sized room with beautiful views over the garden and ample space for a bed and storage. The second bedroom accommodates a double bed and boasts built in wardrobes as well as benefiting again from that fantastic picturesque outlook. The main bedroom is simply stunning with dual aspect windows facing both front and rear offering a real sanctuary of relaxation.

The additional en-suite shower room has been fitted with a traditional white suite with stylish chamfered tiles and is conveniently located to still provide space for storage. The Family bathroom concludes the accommodation and has also been fitted with a traditional white suite and finished with wood panelled bath and shower above.

The property is approached across a shingle driveway, which provides off-road parking for two vehicles. A set of railway sleeper steps leads up to the two stable doors at the front of the property, with access to the boot room via a pathway that runs down the side of the cottage.

There is a pretty front garden which offers a pleasant place to sit and soak up the afternoon sunshine with an area of lawn and several beds of mature shrubs and flowers.

To the rear of the property the garden has been mostly laid to lawn with a further shingled area providing the perfect spot for alfresco entertaining.

In addition to the internal accommodation the property also benefits from a spacious home office which has been insulated and is well serviced with power and lighting. This room, with its views over rolling countryside certainly offers an enviable home working environment.

The property is located between the villages of Eynsford and Farningham within an area of outstanding natural beauty. Eynsford itself is a beautiful village with a fantastic community in addition to a mainline station providing services to London on the Victoria/Blackfriars line.

There are also fantastic road links in the area giving access to the A2/M2, A20/M20, M25 and Dartford Tunnel as well as Ebbsfleet International station, major airports, the coast and Channel Tunnel.

Farningham which is also nearby is believed to be home to Neolithic history with flint and other tools that have been discovered here now found at the Dartford Museum. The River Darent that runs through these villages provides excellent trout fishing, even good enough for Charles Dickens who was a regular visitor here. Now both villages are home to a number of pubs and independent cafes and shops to provide essential amenities on hand.
