A charming Grade ll Listed cottage, situated in a quiet and secluded mews-style setting within easy reach of the centre of Wingham village. The property dates back to the 17th century and has some wonderful period features, however it has also seen numerous improvements in recent years, and now offers well appointed and characterful accommodation, set over two floors.
The property is entered via a wooden front door, which opens into a homely sitting room, with stairs to the first floor and some lovely period features. These include stripped wood flooring, exposed brickwork and numerous exposed beams. The vendors have also added a wood burning stove effect gas fire, which also adds to the warmth and character of this cosy room.
An open doorway leads from the sitting room, into a beautifully appointed kitchen. This has been fitted with a good range of modern wall and floor units, set around oak work surfaces with an inset ceramic sink, space for appliances and attractive ceramic wall and floor tiling.
On the first floor, a small, central landing leads to two double bedrooms and a well appointed shower room, with a contemporary white suite including a walk-in shower enclosure. The master bedroom is a particularly generously proportioned double room, with bespoke built-in wardrobes, exposed brickwork and a handsome cast iron fireplace. The whole property is extremely well presented throughout and would make a great first time buy or an ideal 'lock up and leave' holiday home.
The property's garden is solely to the front and side of the cottage, but not to the rear. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature flower and shrub borders, including a pretty rosebush. There is an allocated parking space opposite the cottage, whilst to the side of the cottage, there is a large patio area, which currently serves as an additional parking space for the property. Adjacent to the patio area, there is also a useful brick built storage shed.
