'Homestead' is thought to have been built C1837. Although we do not know the full history of the property; what we do know is that this cottage was once a butchers serving the village.
If you're looking for a period property and take delight in researching the history relating to the property then you will love this wooden framed Georgian style; weather boarded cottage. The property also comes with a weather boarded and Kent peg tiles barn, ripe for conversion as an annex. It also has lapsed planning for commercial use. If however you have other uses for the outbuilding; again there is expired planning permission to build a completely separate annex elsewhere in the grounds.
As you enter on the ground floor through the main door; facing Stockett Lane there is a spacious hallway with the stairs straight in front of you. To the left is a spacious dining room and to the right a large lounge. Move through either of these rooms and into the rear of the building there is a downstairs WC as well as a kitchen/breakfast room and a downstairs bedroom with an ensuite. The doors through out are a mixture of original and very close imitations.
Upstairs there are three good size double rooms. There is a second ensuite servicing the larger of the 3 ensuite bedrooms and a main family bathroom there to service the others.
In terms of outbuildings there is a full size garage attached to the main house but there is also a beautiful barn, ripe for conversion offering plenty of space to the rear. The house is surrounded by gardens with plenty of room for all the family. There is a beautiful veranda attached to the main house providing a stunning; peaceful area to sit and enjoy the garden.
Coxheath itself is a relatively modern village bordering the Weald of Kent and the North Downs. It is easily accessible to Maidstone Town Centre either via Loose Road or following Stockett Lane into Tovil. Or taking a right turn into Forstal Lane then joining Well Street and down into Loose Village, a historical village characterised by the high walls on some roads, kerbs and gulley's built from Kentish ragstone. A short walk south from the property will lead you onto the south downs, with stunning walks across the orchards down into the weald.
This delightful character cottage is unlikely to stay available for long so hurry now to secure a viewing.
