A charming grade II listed four bedroom attached cottage with land extending to 0.25 acre, situated in arguably one of the most delightful rural positions in the Kent countryside in Pluckley, surrounded by farmland and orchards.

This beautiful property has been the subject of painstaking improvement and extension by the present owner to create a stylish, contemporary living environment whilst retaining many original features.

Upon entering the property, you are immediately greeted with hand made solid oak internal doors and solid French oak flooring, exposed oak beams and brickwork detail to many rooms. The light and airy sitting room benefits from a feature Inglenook fireplace and the quality fitted kitchen enjoys a range of built-in appliances and a breakfasting area to one end. The accommodation also benefits from a ground floor wet room with Travertine stone tiled floor and underfloor heating and a double glazed conservatory / dining room with Indian Sandstone floor and full length windows taking advantage of the far reaching countryside views across the garden and beyond. The first floor features four bedrooms with far reaching views and a character bathroom with roll top bath.

Outside, the landscaped rear garden backs onto open farmland with far reaching countryside views and benefits from a summer house, garden shed and extensive sun patio. Off road parking is afforded by a large gravel driveway for four vehicles along with a newly constructed garage measuring 22'10” x 13'2” (6.96m x 4.00m).

An additional parcel of land can be found directly across the lane from the property, which is principally laid to lawn and gravelled for additional parking for a number of vehicles.

The property is situated in a rural country lane and sits within ¾ mile of Pluckley's main line railway station which provides travel to London Bridge, Canon Street and Ashford International station with its high speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras.

Pluckley is an historic rural village situated in a most beautiful part of the Kent countryside famous for its orchards and farmland and, in particular, being the setting chosen for the television series “The Darling Buds of May”. The village enjoys three historic pubs, Church, Post Office & General Stores, butcher's shop and a well respected primary school. The area is rich in natural beauty with an abundance of public footpaths and horse riding routes, providing an amazing playground for the outdoor enthusiast. Transport links are well served with the previously mentioned railway station along with excellent road networks leading to the A20 and M20 at junction 9, some 6 miles distant, providing access to London and the Kent coast.
