About this property

  • Coming to the market for the first time in over 65 years, Twyssenden Cottage nestles amidst charming cottage gardens in a lovely country lane position, about 2.5 miles from the historic village of Goudhurst, where there are a good range of shops, a church, primary school and various other local amenities. About 5 miles further afield is the popular market town of Cranbrook with more comprehensive facilities. Fast and frequent mainline train services run to London from Marden and Staplehurst stations, 5.4 miles and 8.6 miles respectively.

    Now in need of complete updating, this charming unlisted three bedroom cottage, which is believed to have been built on the site of an ancient old tavern, known as The Black Dog Inn, offers potential purchasers the increasingly rare opportunity to fulfil their own requirements (subject to any necessary planning consents).

    Internally, the accommodation is arranged over two floors and currently comprises three reception rooms, (the dining room with a two oven Everhot range), a kitchen fitted with various pine cupboards, a ground floor bathroom, a buttery/store room, three first floor bedrooms and a WC.

    Outside the pretty cottage-style gardens surround the house, with indigenous hedging to the boundary, seasonal climbers including clematis and rambling roses and various fruit trees including apple and fig.
