A delightful unlisted character cottage, with an attractive and secluded additional garden of about one eighth of an acre overlooking open farmland. The property is beautifully presented and offers particularly well-appointed accommodation over two floors, with the added benefit of a detached double garage and parking. The property has the benefit of recently installed, state-of-the-art electric radiators with Wi-Fi.
The front door opens into a useful storm porch which has a tiled floor, and a double glazed door leading into the sitting room. Here, there is an attractive cast iron working fireplace with a wood surround and mantle. There is also natural wood shelving to the chimney recess. The dining room also has an attractive feature fireplace with a natural wood mantle. An under stairs cupboard provides plenty of storage, double doors lead to a rear lobby and out to the rear garden. A pine door leads to the kitchen, which has a range of natural pine wall and base units set around marble effect work surfaces with an inset sink and drainer, decorative multi-coloured splashback tiling. A doorway leads to the pantry where there is space for a washing machine. The ground floor shower room has a tiled shower cubicle, wash basin and w.c.
The first-floor landing has natural pine doors leading to both double bedrooms. The main bedroom is to the rear of the property and has a floor to ceiling fitted wardrobe, an attractive feature fireplace with oak mantle and a pine door leading to the recently refurbished en-suite bathroom. This is a white suite comprising a deep roll top bath, washbasin inset to a vanity unit, w.c., brick-shaped white splashback tiling and painted match boarded walls. The second bedroom to the front of the property has superb views across to the marina and creek and has a feature fireplace and a built-in wardrobe. Stairs lead from here to the converted attic room, with views from the recently replaced Velux window across open farmland. The attic would make a superb study or home office.
To the rear of the property, the gardens are open plan with rights of way across, allowing access for bins and to the parking area. The vendors have purchased an additional garden attached to the main garden which is very private and backs onto open farmland. This is well fenced and beautifully planted with fruit trees, shrubs and contains a lovely water feature. There are two patios, a decking area and a metal shed with power and light. In the adjacent communal car park, there is a detached double garage with power and light and parking in front. Virtually on the doorstep is the historic Saxon Shore Way and Conyer Creek.
Conyer is a quiet hamlet, equidistant between Faversham and Sittingbourne, which both provide high street shopping, supermarkets and award-winning schools. Teynham is also close by, with its village shops and train station providing direct access to London for the commuter. The area is famed for its Saxon Shore Way and marina and is popular with twitchers and walkers alike, along with those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, all of whom relish its rural setting along the Swale River and Conyer Creek. The Ship Inn public house and restaurant is close at hand as is Conyer Cruising Club.
Faversham has a wide choice of supermarkets, restaurants, individual shops and leisure facilities. There are three markets a week in the cobbled town square beside the ancient Guildhall. Community attractions include the famous annual Hop Festival (the town boasts the oldest brewery in the country) and a magnificent weekend-long classic car show. On the outskirts of the town, Brogdale 'The Home of the National Fruit Collection' stages regular events celebrating Kent as the fruit producing Garden of England.
Both Faversham and Sittingbourne boast high-achieving grammar schools. The cathedral city of Canterbury; Margate, home of its Turner Gallery; and trendy Whitstable, renowned for its oysters and interesting mix of shops, are short journeys away. Thanks to Eurostar, the 'Shuttle' and cross- Channel ferries, the Continent is virtually on your doorstep.
