A picturesque detached small character cottage dating back to the 1800s, nestled in a wonderfully peaceful 1.16 acre plot along the Pilgrim's Way on the North Downs with huge potential to improve and develop into a larger property, subject to consent.

Having been owned by the same family since 1927, this quintessentially typical Kent cottage is a classic example of period properties in the area with an abundance of character features such as inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and cat slide roof.

The Pilgrim's Way is the historical route supposedly taken by pilgrims from Winchester, to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury. It dates back even further, possibly to the Stone Age and now is a wonderful countryside footpath to explore and enjoy, right on your doorstep.

The pretty accommodations is arranged over two floors to include living room with inglenook fireplace, dining room, galley kitchen, rear hall, ground floor bathroom and to the second floor a smaller single bedroom leading to a double bedroom both with reduced ceiling heights.

Outside, you arrive at the property via an iron-gated brick paved driveway with secure parking for several vehicles. A brick laid path then leads you down to the rear of the property and the wonderful view across the property's grounds beyond. Mainly laid to manicured lawns, the garden drops down creating a magnificent open vista yet being private as it is enclosed by hedging with a variety of trees, there is also a small woodland area, shrub and flower beds, vegetable patch along with a tool shed/brick outbuilding with original bread oven, garden office and a newly installed stable/workshop.

The property is located in the very heart of the Kent countryside just 1 mile from the village of Westwell, a rural Kentish village situated on the North Downs surrounded by farmland and open countryside providing country walks and outdoor pursuits.

The village enjoys its own pub called The Wheel, this and the nearby village hall are the centres for many village activities including the Women's Institute, Parochial Church Council, and the ever popular Westwell Players amateur dramatics. Charing village is just 3 miles away offering yet more amenities.

Transport links are well supported with Ashford International station being just 4.9 miles which benefits from the High Speed train service to London St Pancras, with a journey time of just 37 minutes, whilst junction 9 of the M20 motorway is some 3.8 miles distant.
