Beautiful period cottage with permission for expansion in Brenchley.
Dating back to around the 18th Century and nesting in a semi-rural position about a mile from the popular village of Brenchley, this beautifully presented period cottage has been sympathetically updated with a fresh and modern finish. It comes with the added benefit of planning permission for a two-storey extension to further enhance the accommodation to the rear.
Painted brick work and good ceiling heights create a light and spacious feel throughout, whilst period character is abundant, with drop latch doors and aged oak beams.
The house opens to an entrance hall and downstairs cloakroom, which leads through to a cosy sitting room, comprising a terracotta tiled hearth with additional fireplace and wood burning stove. A dining room leads off, complete with inglenook fireplace, with inbuilt bookshelves and finished with limestone floor tiles, which embodies the rustic feel of the property.
Sitting at the back is a country-style Rencraft kitchen, featuring a Belfast sink with granite, wood and tiled surfaces.
Integrated appliances include a double oven oil-fired Aga,dishwasher, washing machine and halogen hob.
Upstairs features four double bedrooms, one with a dressing room, all enjoying a lovely outlook and a well-appointed stylish family bathroom to complete the accommodation.
There is an additional garage with remote controlled electric roller door, office, workshop and a temperature controlled wine store.
A proposed extension has already been granted and planned – this would create a generously proportioned modern open plan kitchen/family room on the ground floor and a master bedroom suite above.
