Description

2 Stonebridge Cottages offers the opportunity to purchase a wonderful 3 double bedroom attached cottage with beautiful gardens, studio, off-street parking and potential for extension, situated within the sought after village of Woodchurch, and within easy reach of the towns of Tenterden and Ashford.

This lovely unlisted period property, part of the original Stonebridge Inn, has undergone extensive and sympathetic refurbishment and extension by the current owners, and now offers a stylish blend of modern living and period charm, which has a layout and design to suit any number of different buyers. Although the current accommodation is surprisingly spacious, there is recent lapsed planning consent for a two storey side extension which offers the potential to increase the footprint of the cottage and for someone to put their own mark on it, subject of course to the necessary current permissions.

Outside, there are more good surprises in store. To the side of the house is an off-street parking space, behind which double gates open onto an area which at present provides additional parking. To the rear of this is the pretty landscaped cottage garden that is perfectly in harmony with the feel of the cottage and has plenty of space for the enjoyment of children, pets and gardeners alike. An added bonus is the purpose built outbuilding at the end of the garden which has been used as a home office, but could provide studio or hobby space, or simply be somewhere to sit, relax, sip a G and T and enjoy the garden.

Outside
The front of the property is well screened by a mature hedge, to the side of which is off-street parking for one vehicle. Double gates lead you through to a gravelled area, currently used for additional parking of up to three cars. To the rear of this is a pretty screened patio area, which makes a sunny place to eat or sit and have your morning coffee. The garden itself, which is south east facing, is surprisingly large and beautifully landscaped with cottage style plants that are perfectly in keeping with the feel of the property. A path leads down the side of the lawn to a purpose built outbuilding which could be used as a home office, summerhouse, studio or retreat.
