HouseSimple is pleased to present this delightful 19th Century Detached ragstone cottage located off a quiet single track country lane.  The property is set in a rural but not isolated position approximately a mile from the village of Boughton Monchelsea and just three miles south of the County Town of Maidstone.

The cottage was completely renovated by the present owners some six yeas ago and benefits from gas central heating, double glazing and an en-suite cloakroom to the main bedoom.

Approaching the front, a ragstone entrance porch leads into the reception/dining room with part panelled wall housing staircase, feature brick fireplace and original polished pine floorboards.

Lounge:  A bright and airy double aspect sitting room boasts an original fireplace with wooden joinery double glazed casement windows to the front and rear which overlooks the private garden.  .  

Kitchen:  Units consist of solid wood limed oak doors, ceramic hob with extractor fan and electric oven under.  All switches have safety electrical cut outs. A modern combi boiler serves gas hot water and central heating.  Recent Gassafe checks available.  

Bathroom:  A fully modernised white suite, bath with shower over, basin and close coupled WC. 

A cottage staircase leads to two bedrooms upstairs, one with ensuite water closet and walk in wardrobe.


The rear garden has a paved patio and a further shingled area surrounded by lawns.  There is a brick path which leads to an original ragstone outbuilding. A large insulated wooden garden shed situated to the side has power points both inside and provides ample additional storage.  

To the rear of the cottage there is a single garage and a good sized parking area which is accessed over a shared driveway. There is also pedestrian access to the front from the garden through a private gate to the far side. The present owners believe the cottage could be extended or a garage erected subject to pp.  An old single garage exists at present.  Outside tap. 

Planning permission for extension was granted  in 2014 but has since lapsed.
