    A family bathroom completes the first floor.

    Arranged over the second floor are two linked bedrooms, one currently utilised as a study, and both served by a well-appointed family bathroom.

    Teston Cottage is situated behind a charming ragstone wall with a path surrounded by lawn and specimen trees, including a variety of acers and a magnificent wisteria, leading to the front door.

    The delightful south facing garden to the rear is predominantly laid to lawn with a well-stocked border to one side and an expansive paved terrace providing an excellent area for al fresco entertaining.

    To the rear of the property and accessed via Tower Hill, a no through road, is the driveway and detached garage with adjoining gym and large storage area above accessed by a staircase, and double gates leading to the garden.
