Situated in a prominent position in the centre of the village of Wittersham, this pretty, deceptively spacious 3 double bedroom Grade II Listed period home with previous commercial space attached is now in need of modernisation, but could offer someone an exciting opportunity to create something really special.

This quaint building, known locally as “The Old Corner House”, has a double fronted quintessentially English country property set back on on side and attached on the other, a heavy oak timber structure, which in Victorian times was the local village store, “Neves”, selling groceries and millinery. In more recent years, it has been a well known antique shop. Not only is the property located in a very visible position on the main thoroughfare through the village should anyone wish to reinstate it as a commercial business, but it has well-proportioned spaces and many original period features, a lovely cottage garden and off-street parking to the front and rear which would combine to make an attractive package should anyone wish to convert it into one large family home (subject of course to planning).

This property, which is situated in the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, also benefits from being a short drive from the historic Cinque Port towns of Tenterden and Rye and their superb array of shops and amenities. The wild and wonderful Romney Marshes, Rother levels and coast are also just a short drive away.

Rear Lobby 7' 8" x 4' 3" (2.34m x 1.30m)
A stable door at the back of the house opens into a lobby area, ideal for dirty boots, coats and dogs. This space in turn leads into a utility area and the kitchen.

Utility Area 6' 4" x 4' 0" (1.93m x 1.22m)
This area, which is at present a store, would be ideal as a utility room.

Kitchen / Breakfast Room 18' 4" x 13' 8" (5.59m x 4.17m)
(including fireplace) This spacious room with its oil Aga and French doors onto the garden, feels like the heart of this home. Fitted units to three sides mean that the middle of the room is ideal for a large table and chairs. Sink unit with drainer. Space for free standing oven, under counter fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Cupboard housing hot water cylinder.

Dining Room 15' 2" x 10' 2" (4.62m x 3.10m)
Handily situated next to the kitchen, this lovely room could be used for formal dining or as a second sitting room. Door onto garden and into small lobby that leads to front door.

Rear Hallway
This stunning space, with its part vaulted ceiling, herringbone brick floor and beautiful carved staircase, really shows off the history of this building. This area forms the link between the domestic house and the attached former shop building. Door onto rear garden.

Shower Room 8' 7" x 4' 8" (2.62m x 1.42m)
A useful downstairs shower room which also acts as a cloakroom.

Sitting Room 15' 0" x 11' 9" (4.57m x 3.58m)
This spacious sitting room exudes character, especially with its huge inglenook which houses a wood burning stove. Large cupboard to side of chimney breast.

Bedroom 1 15' 8" x 11' 4" (4.78m x 3.45m)
Stairs from the ground floor rear hall lead up to all three bedrooms, the principal of which has its own large en-suite bathroom and dressing room.

En-suite Bathroom 11' 4" x 9' 9" (3.45m x 2.97m)
This very generous en-suite comprises a large double ended bath, wash basin and WC. A door gives access to a very useful eaves storage space (unmeasured).

Dressing Room 10' 1" x 9' 3" (3.07m x 2.82m)
A useful dressing area with built-in storage and room for free standing storage. Access to large eaves storage space (unmeasured) at front.

Bedroom 2 16' 3" x 14' 3" (4.95m x 4.34m)
A large double bedroom with window to the side and feature Victorian fireplace.

Bedroom 3 16' 0" x 15' 10" (4.88m x 4.83m)
A good size double aspect bedroom with feature arch windows to the front.

The Old Corner House Shop 36' 5" x 23' 8" (11.10m x 7.21m)
This wonderful space, currently divided into three distinct zones, has bags of potential (subject to the necessary permissions). At present, there is a shop area, office area and store room. A door to the front of the shop means that this area has a separate access from the house if needed. A further door gives access to the house.

To the front of the house is a gate that takes you through to a lovely cottage style garden, and to the front of the old shop, a tarmac area provides off-street parking for one vehicle. The lovely gardens which wrap around the side of the house are completely in keeping with the character of the property. A patio area at the rear would make an ideal setting for al fresco dining or just somewhere to sit and relax. A gate from this area leads to a pebble driveway where there is parking for up to two cars.
