A highly attractive and charming semi-detached Victorian Cottage in this delightful rural location on the edge of Brenchley village, in about 1.73 acres
Well-presented throughout, Owl Cottage is a four-bedroom family home that has been updated and extended over the years to offer over 1900 sq ft of family living space with beautiful mature gardens totalling about 1.7 acres.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors, enjoying an open-plan kitchen/dining room with traditional farmhouse-style cabinetry, granite work surfaces, and a range of integrated appliances including an electric oven with a 5-ring gas hob, steam oven and heated drawer, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.
The sizeable sitting room is of particular note, enjoying an attractive feature fireplace with a log burning stove, and concertina doors opening to the impressive conservatory with limestone tiled flooring, and double doors opening to the rear flagstone terrace. There is a useful scullery with a Belfast sink situated off the conservatory, with doors opening to the rear terrace and wc.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, one of which enjoys a charming feature fireplace and fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom has an attractive outlook to the front of the property, whilst bedroom three has an outlook to the rear. A good-sized family bathroom with a fitted airing cupboard and additional storage cabinets completes the first floor accommodation.
The triple-aspect principal bedroom is found on the second floor, with fitted cabinetry and far-reaching views over the neighbouring countryside, together with a further bathroom featuring a roll top bath, also enjoying an attractive outlook.
Outside, there is a spacious detached garage fitted with both water and electricity, with an adjoining log store. Steps from the garden lead to the office, situated above the garage, providing an opportunity to update and extend to create a self-contained annexe, subject to necessary planning and consent. There are two further sheds providing useful garden storage.
The mature gardens and grounds as a whole are laid to lawn, with herbaceous borders and arbours with climbing roses and jasmine. There is a large pond with a small island, inviting an abundance of wildlife. There are many specimen trees in the grounds including oak, chequer tree, silver birch, ash, chestnut and larch with underplanted spring bulbs. A gravel driveway that provides ample parking for multiple vehicles.
