About this property

  • Located in a delightful semi rural location with pretty countryside views, Willow Cottage is a three bedroom semi detached period property built in the 1930's with later additions, set in attractive gardens of about 0.64 of an acre.

    This characterful unlisted home which has been in the same ownership for 27 years, is located on a no through road overlooking apple orchards, about 2 miles east of the popular village of Horsmonden. The property offers an exciting opportunity to enhance the current property with planning permission (24/00182/FULL) to extend and create a six bedroom property and erection of replacement garage with habitable accommodation above.

    Internally, the property retains many period features including exposed beams, brick and an inglenook fireplace. The ground floor accommodation features oak flooring throughout and comprises a porch opening to the double aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace and log burner. Two sets of double doors open onto the patio area, creating an indoor outdoor living space. Off the sitting room is a versatile snug area. A door leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining room fitted with a comprehensive range of cupboards, various integral appliances and beautiful floor to ceiling windows allowing ample light.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms. The main bedroom enjoys a walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room whilst the other bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. Almost all bedrooms enjoy the beautiful adjoining countryside views.

    Outside, the well established gardens surround the property, there is a substantial terrace ideal for entertaining flanked with olive trees and seasonal shrubs. The lawn stretches away to the north totaling about 0.64 of an acre in total and with a vehicular access on the northern boundary. There is parking for several cars as well as a single garage with office above and a carport.
