Large Outbuilding With Three Rooms - Ideal Home Office
Beautiful Gardens Of 0.35 Of An Acre
Highly Sought After Village Near Canterbury & Sandwich
A beautiful detached thatched cottage, brimming with character, set towards the end of a quiet no through road in the sought after village of Preston with gardens of 0.35 of an acre.
It is thought the cottage dates from around 1600 and unusually for a property of this age, the cottage is not listed. Many of the period features one would expect from this era are preserved, such as exposed beams and brickwork and lovely inglenook fireplaces.
The front door opens to an entrance porch and through to both the sitting room & dining room with their exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces. The kitchen is large, bright and spacious with ample room for a table & chairs and has a high vaulted ceiling and a gas range cooker.
There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and a modern family bathroom as well as a handy downstairs w.c.
On the first floor is the master bedroom which has a high vaulted ceiling and lovely exposed beams and a built in wardrobe. Also found on the first floor is the office - it is thought it would be relatively simple to enclose this room from the landing to create a 4th bedroom.
Outside the cottage is set towards the centre of is's 0.35 acre plot and is surrounded by beautiful gardens to three sides which are clearly a labour of love for the current vendors. There is a large gravelled parking area with ample parking for several cars and a detached double garage. Set over to one side of the garden is the timber built home office which has three rooms, is fully insulated and has power and light and could even be used as a summer house with two office rooms.
Preston is a sought after village set 9 miles East of Canterbury and just 7 miles from Sandwich. There is a well regarded primary school currently rated 'Good' by OFSTED as well as a public house, garden centre and miles of walks through the surrounding countryside.
