A lovely period Grade 11 listed detached cottage situated in an attractive location within a conservation area overlooking the village green, set in a delightful garden backing onto farmland and retaining many interesting period features. Constructed of brick with painted rendered elevations under a Kent peg clay tile roof. Dating from the 16th Century the cottage is believed to be one of the oldest houses in the village with its origins as the laundry serving the local manor house and estate. This is borne out by the fact that the 2 main reception rooms at 19’x 18’ x 19’ x 14’ are larger than you would expect for a modest domestic cottage, in addition it has been extended to create a spacious 18’4 x 13’6 kitchen/breakfast room, plus a downstairs cloakroom.
The accommodation at present comprises; sitting room with original exposed beamed ceiling and Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and oak floorboards, dining room with exposed ceiling beams, Inglenook fireplace and flagstone floor, Farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with cloakroom and rear lobby. Upstairs are the bathroom and 2 double bedrooms (one with a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room, if needed the other is large enough to be remodelled to create a double and single bedroom.
