Charming Grade II listed semi-detached hall house with superb gardens

About this property

  • Cherry Cottage is a charming Grade II listed 14th century semi-detached Hall House, with part tile hung elevations, situated in the centre of the sought after hamlet of Chiddingstone Hoath. The light and spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors and has been meticulously refurbished and extended by the present owners, subtly combining character features with modern embellishments. Salient features include a bespoke kitchen, modern bathroom suites, some exposed brick walls, exposed wall and ceiling timbers, thumb latch doors and fireplaces. The superb south east facing gardens provide a lovely backdrop to the house and amount to over 180 foot in length.

    The impressive double aspect reception hall has a wood burning stove. The spacious sitting room benefits from a square bay window and a striking inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.

    The superb double aspect bespoke kitchen is fitted with a double butler sink, an electric Aga and integrated appliances.

    The adjoining dining room has access to the rear terrace.

    A well-appointed cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Arranged over the first floor is the master bedroom, two further bedrooms, a stylish shower room and a contemporary family bathroom with a roll top bath and delightful views across the rear garden.

    A second staircase rises to two further bedrooms and a cloakroom.

    To the front of the property is a paved path, flanked by areas of lawn with established evergreen shrubs to the boundary.

    To the rear of the property, there is a generous terrace, enclosed by raised beds, ideal for al fresco entertaining. Steps lead to the established south east facing gardens which is principally laid to lawn, with specimen trees and well-stocked mature borders providing year round interest. There is a summerhouse, a shed and gated side access.

    To the left of the property is a track leading to the garage and off road parking. A room above the garage is currently used for storage, and offers potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

I feel this is a very special home, an absolutely charming property with modern interior, yet retaining its characterful features. A must view!
