About this property

  • Coming to the market for the first time in over 24 years, Three Fields is an exciting opportunity in a delightful and peaceful countryside location.

    Believed to date back to the 1830s, Three Fields was formerly two cottages, which were later converted and extended to form the property that stands today. The accommodation is set across two floors, almost symmetrical in nature and enjoys much character throughout, with exposed timber beams, feature fireplaces, Accoya double glazing and ledge and braced doors throughout.

    The well-appointed shaker style kitchen is fitted with granite and Iroko worksurfaces, a range of integrated appliances and enjoys an adjoining breakfast/ dining area. There are three further reception rooms that can be arranged to suit, currently comprising a sizeable formal dining room with a full-length window providing delightful views of the garden, a generous sitting room with a Heta wood burning stove and French doors opening to the rear terrace and a snug/family room with fitted cabinetry and shelving.

    Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, two of which enjoy a useful dressing area, whilst the remaining two bedrooms offer built-in storage. The bedrooms are served by two family bathrooms, both fitted with a bath, sink basin and wc.

    There is a detached single garage with storage above and an adjoining utility room with fitted cabinets and space for a washing machine and dryer. The established and level gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a rear terrace spanning the breadth of the house. A vegetable garden with a greenhouse provides the perfect readymade infrastructure for gardening enthusiasts. The boundary is marked by a mixture of mature hedging and fencing, with attractive views over the rear boundary to the adjoining field and treeline beyond.

    It is worth noting that the previous owners secured planning permission (1999) to extend over the garage to form further bedroom accommodation, together with a side extension to the kitchen. The planning permission has long since lapsed so buyers are encouraged to make their own investigations moving forward.

I instantly fell for the charm and the cosy welcome that is on offer at Three Fields; this very pretty cottage is nestled in the heart of the Kent countryside, for the nature lovers there is immediate and easy access to nearby footpaths and the surrounding countryside, for those looking for the 'good life' the garden offers the space and chance to become a dab-hand at veggie growing. The cottage itself is traditional and much-loved, the new owners will have a wonderful time making it their own.
