This was the second property we've sold through Mann and although they were eight years apart, we've walked away with the same positive view.
Mann Countrywide are delighted to bring to the open market the most quintessential two bedroom Grade II listed cottage in the heart of the idyllic village of Petham, Canterbury.
This charming two bedroom cottage circa 1745 has an abundance of character features throughout. Entry to the property can be made either from the front door or via the rear stable door. The accommodation comprises: pretty lounge with a stunning wood burning stove with oak beam mantle, exposed beams, lovely sash wooden window to the front and storage cupboards with original doors. The lounge leads through into a beautiful country style kitchen with granite work surfaces and a quaint butler sink with chrome mixer tap. Contrasting light grey floor tiles flow throughout and there is room for both washing and cooking appliances. A pantry allows room for fridge/freezer and there is a dining area and stable door with an outlook towards the courtyard garden.
There is a downstairs bathroom with a white suite and metro tiling, with a 'Triton' power shower over the bath. To the first floor, a staircase takes you to two large double bedrooms. From the staircase you will enter directly into the second bedroom of which benefits from exposed beams and a large built in wardrobe and storage cupboard over. A wooden sash window gives a pretty outlook over a flint cottage and gardens. The bedroom leads through to the master bedroom with chimney breast giving more of a character feel and built in wardrobe. Once again stunning exposed beams take central focus point and the large window to the front fill the room with copious amounts of natural light.
To the rear of the property, the current owners have created a pebbled courtyard area with fencing. Along the pathway, you will find an idyllic cottage garden laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees and plants. A wooden shed is useful for storage and an archway leads through to the private driveway measuring approximately 31ftx24ft with parking for up to three vehicles and a second shed. PLEASE NOTE, there is not a boundary fence between one part of the garden and the neighbouring garden through the current owners choice as the pathway forms the boundary. Please contact the office for further information.
The property benefits from electric heating but oil is an option. Please note there is NO mains gas in the village of Petham, although neighbouring properties use gas bottles.
The property has a warm and cosy atmosphere and would suit those looking as a first time purchase, an additional home or a downsized choice in a beautiful rural village of Canterbury.
