    About this property

    • Coming to the market for the first time in almost 30 years, Oak Tree House is a beautifully situated unlisted home, formerly two farm workers cottages and believed to date, in part, from the early 20th century with later additions. Situated about 1 mile from the popular town of Cranbrook off a shared private lane, the property enjoys gently sloping established gardens with far reaching southerly and westerly views.

      This charming home which offers the opportunity for some updating if required, currently comprises a welcoming reception hall with wood block flooring and off which are three reception rooms including sitting and family rooms both with wood burning stoves and having lovely views and a flexible dining room/study with French doors to the garden.

      The L shaped kitchen/breakfast room has a range of cupboards, an oil fired Aga and space for various white goods. Off the kitchen is a utility room with additional cupboards and housing the boiler. Access can be gained to the garage.

      There are five bedrooms, a family bathroom and en suite shower room on the first floor. The main bedroom suite is of good proportions, enjoying a dual aspect, the lovely views and benefitting from a shower room and dressing room. Ladder access leads to a substantial boarded attic space with window to one end and potential, subject to planning.

      Outside to the front is a sloping gravel driveway which provides off road parking for a number of cars and access to the double garage.

      Attractive, well established gardens with mixed hedging and fencing to the perimeter lie mainly to three sides of the property. Wonderful southerly and westerly views can be enjoyed, there is a generous paved terrace with raised beds and gently sloping lawns interspersed with shrubs and various trees including cooking and eating apples.
