An extremely charming grade II listed detached property with delightful gardens and off street parking in a prime location.
Located in a desirable location in the sought after town of Tenterden, Pittlesden Gatehouse is an ancient former gatehouse which is allegedly the oldest house in Tenterden dating back to the 14th century. This charming property has stunning front and rear elevations and boasts a wealth of period features including inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams. The property remains in excellent order throughout with the addition of a rear extension understood to have been added within the 16th century to provide generous and unique living accommodation.
The property is arranged over two floors and offers spacious accommodation with three well-proportioned reception rooms; a sitting room, a study area and a formal dining room both with inglenook fireplaces. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of bespoke hand made cupboards complimented by wooden worktops, an Aga and butler sink. Off the kitchen is a utility room with space for a washing machine. A cloakroom and a useful store conclude the ground floor accommodation.
A beautiful bespoke staircase leads up to a half landing area with a delightful vaulted ceiling. Further steps lead up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a shower room. All bedrooms benefit from excellent cupboard/storage space, whilst the main bedroom has a walk in wardrobe, a wc and a shower. The family shower room has a shower cubicle and boasts period features including beams and latch doors.
Approached via a picket gate, with a path edged with established borders full of flowers and shrubs, Pittlesden Gatehouse is a hidden gem, nestled amongst delightful gardens to both the front and rear. The rear south facing garden has a patio area with steps up to a terraced area with a windy path which leads to the summerhouse and garden shed/store. Double gates provide access to the off road parking for two cars and also space for a further car within the gates.
