An impressive, well presented, five bedroom detached Grade II listed home believed to date back to the 17th Century, with extensive parking and attractive gardens located in the popular semi-rural village of Bethersden.

Sunnyside was originally believed to be three cottages with a later addition to the side that was the village butchers. Since then, the four properties have been incorporated into one large family home with a wealth of character and charm yet offering flexible accommodation not always possible with properties of this age.

The notable features include reception/entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, study and cloakroom. To the first floor, there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom and dressing area, third bedroom and a spacious first floor shower room. To the second floor, there are two double attic bedrooms, each with their own original staircase.

Outside, the grounds total approximately 0.68 acres and comprise a large front garden with pond, two driveways with off road parking for numerous vehicles to the rear, along with a number of small barns and landscaped gardens.

Bethersden is a sought after semi rural village with a range of local shops including a Butchers and Post Office, hair dressers, two village pubs and a Church. The village lies south-west of the large market town of Ashford with its wide array of shopping and leisure facilities and excellent schooling options.

Transport links are well supported with access to the M20 at Junction 9, some 7 miles distant with access to London and the Eurotunnel, in addition to the International Rail Station at Ashford providing fast services to the continent and a 37 minute high speed service to London St Pancras.
