    About this property

    • Set within the Conservation Area of The Moor at Hawkhurst with its lovely historic church and village green, St Margaret's Cross is an attractive attached Grade II listed four/five bedroom property with established part walled gardens, off road parking, garaging and period brick outhouse.

      This charming home is understood to date from the early 18th century with 19th century additions and later internal touches still in evidence from the 1920s or 30s. The entrance hall has exposed floorboards and staircase to the first floor.

      Three attractive reception rooms comprise a lovely sitting room with deep bay to the front and impressive inglenook with wood burning stove, a family room with painted beams, wood burning stove and decorative stone surround and a dining room with pine flooring, period fireplace and access to a side hall.

      The kitchen has some generous built-in hand painted cupboards together with a gas fired three oven Aga. There is an adjacent utility room with space for white goods and direct access to the garden.

      Four attractive first floor bedrooms, all with feature fireplaces, are served by a shower room and a family bathroom which is located on the second floor. There are two versatile attic rooms on this floor, both of good proportions, which could be utilised as required.

      St Margaret's Cross is accessed via a pedestrian gate and path leading to the front door, whilst to the north double timber gates open to an off road parking area. There is a garage and period brick outhouse currently used as a wood/garden store.

      The part walled garden enjoys lawned areas with mature shrub borders, specimen trees and a gravel terrace area, perfect for al fresco dining.

    I love the mix of history wrapped up in this house from the 1700s and earlier through to some lovely 1920/30s touches.
