About this property

  • The Cottage is an attractive, Dutch gable fronted property with painted brick elevations under a Kent peg tile roof, built in 1868 in the grounds of Bucksford Manor. Situated on the outskirts of the charming village of Great Chart it is conveniently located being just over 2 miles from Ashford International station and Junction 9 of the M20.

    Internally the accommodation comprises an entrance porch, reception hall, well-proportioned double aspect drawing room, cloakroom, door leading to the courtyard. The kitchen/breakfast room, with wonderful views over the lake, has painted wall and floor units with wooden work tops, electric double oven, electric hob and integral dishwasher and space for an American style fridge freezer. French doors lead off the kitchen to the conservatory and the terrace. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom and en suite bathroom with overhead shower. A laundry cupboard has plumbing for a washing machine. A turned staircase leads to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, and family bathroom with roll top bath and shower over.

    The Cottage has a right of way over a private drive to a gravelled area with double garage and parking for several cars. There is a spacious paved terrace and decked area overlooking the lake – perfect for ‘al fresco' entertaining or just enjoying the abundance of wildlife. The gardens extend along the southern boundary of the lake to the grazing land beyond and the property has river frontage to the western boundary of the Stour. Of the five acres, the lake comprises approximately 2.5 acres. The property also benefits from two further garages with parking and three garden sheds.

Great opportunity to enjoy lakeside living with great commuting potential
