A charming and surprisingly well-proportioned four/five bedroom detached chalet bungalow offering truly versatile accommodation, occupying a plot of one fifth of an acre in a rural setting surrounded by farmland on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Smarden.

The property is a good example of the style of property found in the Weald with traditional white weatherboarding on the principal elevations. The flexible accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room with feature brick fireplace with bressumer beam, dining room, kitchen, study/bedroom five, downstairs cloakroom, two ground floor double bedrooms, family bathroom and two first floor double bedrooms.

The property benefits from timber framed leaded windows, a good deal of which are sealed unit double glazed, oil fired central heating, private drainage and a security alarm system.

Outside, the gardens lie principally to the south west of the house featuring extensive lawned areas and a relaxing paved patio to the rear. There are wonderful open views to the front and rear over neighbouring farmland. Ample parking is afforded by way of a gravel driveway for several vehicles leading to a covered carport and large single garage, with utility/store room (accessible via a covered walkway) and tool shed to the rear.

The property lies in a rural country lane on the edge of the village of Smarden, an extremely sought after historic village with a close-knit and welcoming community, boasting its own Church, village hall, Post Office and stores, butchers shop, gallery and three well-respected pubs.

The village is situated close by the neighbouring villages of Pluckley and Headcorn, both with mainline railway stations to London Charing Cross and Ashford International, which benefits from the High Speed 37 minute service to London St Pancras.
