    About this property

    • 1-2 Upper Street Cottages is a delightful unlisted period home, formerly two farm workers cottages which were originally part of the Leeds Castle estate, and believed to date, in part, from the early 18th century or earlier. Situated off a rural country lane, the property enjoys well established south easterly facing gardens, which adjoin open farmland to the rear.

      The property has been beautifully refurbished by the current owners, who have also extended it to incorporate a very stylish kitchen/breakfast/family room with under floor heating, UV roof lantern and a lovely garden outlook. It also features an abundance of exposed beams and timbers, Italian porcelain tile and brick flooring to several rooms and wood burning stoves to the sitting and dining rooms.

      Reception rooms include a dining room which is open to the kitchen and a dual aspect sitting room, both of which are situated in the oldest part of the house.

      The bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast/family room is a wonderful family space, having been configured to make the most of this flexible space. It is equipped with an excellent range of cupboards, a central island and various appliances including Miele ovens, an induction hob and integral dishwasher. Two sets of bi fold doors open to the terrace and gardens. Completing the ground floor is a study, a rear hall with coats cupboard, a utility room with cupboards and space for white goods, a boot room/cupboard and a WC.

      On the first floor are three bedrooms, all enjoying views either over the farmland to the north and north west or the gardens and adjoining farmland to the rear. The main bedroom is an attractive part vaulted room of good proportions, benefiting from air conditioning, an excellent range of custom made wardrobes by Kent Wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower. There is a further family bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware.

      Outside, there is parking to either side of the house and access to a double open bay garage. The beautifully maintained garden lies to the back of the house, with rabbit proof fencing, mature hedging and an expanse of lawn interspersed with specimen and fruit trees including pear and cherry and an ornamental pond. A generous Indian sandstone terrace provides the ideal area for al fresco entertaining and there is also a covered BBQ area, a log store and shed.
