A charming Victorian cottage which has been creatively extended to the rear providing a wonderful kitchen/dining space, flooded with natural light from the skylights, with double doors out to surprisingly large, stunning gardens. This delightful cottage is not to be missed and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The property is located in a peaceful mews off Wingham's High Street, where you have a good selection of shops, amenities and an award-winning pub. Its situation allows you to fully immerse yourself in village life, enjoying a friendly community and the stunning Kent countryside. The property does not have any allocated parking but there is plenty of on-street parking available in nearby roads, which you do not need a permit for.

Dating back to the 1870's (approximately), this lovely cottage is bursting with artistic flair and charm, but the modern rear extension gives it a contemporary feeling. The front door opens into the sitting room, which features exposed floorboards, a wood-burning stove and storage and shelving in the alcoves either side. A door then leads through to the rear of the property, where you will find a modern kitchen which is open to a stunning part-vaulted dining area with six skylights, drenching the room with beautiful natural light. Due to the light and the inspiring outlook onto the gardens, the current owner uses this room a lot for her painting and artistic hobbies. There are attractive french doors with a dark-grey frame opening out to the garden and a door off the dining area opens into a room, which the current owner uses as a guest bedroom (it is a small single) or it could be used as a study. This too has a lovely outlook onto the garden and a door which leads out to it.

A wooden door from the kitchen opens to stairs, which rise to the upstairs landing. On this floor, you will find a large double bedroom to the front and a good-sized bathroom. The bedroom is a lovely size and has a large sash window which gives the room a warm and sunny aspect. It has a very relaxing feeling about it. It has a feature fireplace which has distressed brick, and exposed wooden floorboards. The bathroom is attractive, with natural slate tiling and features a bath and a heated towel rail. There is built-in storage above the bath and another storage cupboard off the landing.

OUTSIDE:

Outside, the property has the most glorious, well-established, cottage garden. There is a small patio area with steps leading from the house down to the first part of the garden, which has a small pond and beautiful, mature trees which are lovely hues of green and purple. The garden then opens out into a surprisingly large section which is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees bordering. There is a second pond to the corner of the garden, as well as another patio seating area and raised vegetable beds. There is a good mix of shady and sunny spots in the garden, with the trees providing some welcome shade when the sun is very warm. It is the perfect outside space for someone who loves their gardening and is great for garden parties in the summer.

There is an attractive timber summerhouse, which could be used as an artist's studio, a hobby room or just a relaxing garden room where you can enjoy the peaceful setting.

There is a gate providing pedestrian access across the rear of the adjacent properties, so you do not have to walk garden waste through the house.

LOCATION:

Wingham is a charming village set within the stunning Kent countryside, located almost equidistant from the City of Canterbury and the historic market town of Sandwich. Its High Street is thriving, with convenience stores, a wonderful bakery and two village pubs. The village has a warm sense of community and there is plenty for residents to get involved in.

The village benefits from an excellent bus service, with buses into both Canterbury and Sandwich and there is a mainline train station in the neighbouring village of Adisham, where you can catch direct trains into London.

Wingham is surrounded by stunning countryside and there is a footpath close to the property which takes you into and through the beautiful fields behind. There is an abundance of walking, cycling routes as well as bridle paths and liveries. Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve and the sandy beaches of Thanet are also within easy reach by car.
