Originally the village bakery, this lovely period property situated in the heart of the pretty village of Appledore, is now a charming and deceptively spacious 4 bedroom / 2 bathroom home, which comes with the benefit of a detached garage, plentiful off-street parking and hidden south facing garden.

On entering, you realise immediately that you are in a very special, unique home. Not only are you struck by its comfortable, vintage style lived in feel and beautiful period features, but by its deceptively generous proportions and the surprising number of rooms which are arranged over three floors.

To the ground floor, there is a spacious sitting room with wood burner, dining room with separate access from the outside, utility cum scullery, shower room and kitchen. NB: The layout of this floor would certainly lend itself to some kind of commercial use, possibly a cafe or tea room, subject of course to any necessary permissions. To the first floor is a large landing with open fire, currently used as a study, two double bedrooms, a cloakroom and walk-in wardrobe, and to the second floor, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

This property also benefits from off-street parking for a number of vehicles, a detached garage to the rear, timber outbuilding / studio and a very pretty hidden south facing courtyard garden. The village itself sits between the Cinque Port towns of Tenterden and Rye, close to the famous Military Canal, the wild and wonderful Romney Marshes and coast, which is what makes this location so very popular.

Sitting Room 19' 2" x 14' 6" (5.84m x 4.42m)
With its beautiful brick fireplace with wood burner, carved wood beamed ceiling and stripped floors, this generous room exudes character and warmth. Large bay window to front. Door linking this room to dining room.

Dining Room 11' 4" x 10' 10" (3.45m x 3.30m)
Currently used as a dining room, this lovely space, with its original floor, tongue and groove wood panelling and shelving, still has the feel of a baker's shop from a by-gone era. Linked to the sitting room, these two spaces at the front of this property could certainly again be used for a food or retail business, subject to the necessary consents.

Utility / Scullery 10' 2" x 9' 10" (3.10m x 3.00m)
This useful space has a number of built-in cupboards with worktops and dresser unit, making it great for storing things away that you don't want to see and for displaying all the household gadgets like coffee machines and air fryers that you do. Space and plumbing for washing machine. Walk-in Larder. Original oak ridged panelling to one wall. NB: We understand this area has been set up with additional water and power supplies to support food business use.

Kitchen 15' 10" x 8' 9" (4.83m x 2.67m)
The kitchen, which is at the back of the property, has a bespoke industrial feel. Fitted cabinets with sink unit. Further set of fitted cabinets next to Range cooker (extractor above). Space for dishwasher and American style fridge/freezer. Door to garden.

Downstairs Shower Room
This useful downstairs shower room also doubles as the cloakroom for the ground floor.

First Floor Landing 14' 2" x 11' 2" (4.32m x 3.40m)
Stairs from the ground floor lead to a wonderful landing with working open fire, currently set up as a study / home office. Large under stairs built-in cupboard and door to walk-in-wardrobe / storage space.

Bedroom 1 11' 7" x 10' 3" (3.53m x 3.12m)
A beautiful double bedroom with window to the front overlooking the village.

Bedroom 2 12' 6" x 9' 6" (3.81m x 2.90m)
Double bedroom with built-in storage and window to the front.

Cloakroom 3' 11" x 2' 11" (1.19m x 0.89m)
A useful cloakroom, situated at the base of the stairs to the second floor, serves all four bedrooms.

Second Floor
Stairs from the first floor lead to a small landing which gives access to the two bedrooms on the second floor. NB: Some restricted head height to this floor.

Bedroom 3 15' 5" x 12' 2" (4.70m x 3.71m)
A very spacious double bedroom with beautiful old wide floorboards and window to front.

Bedroom 4 11' 8" x 9' 0" (3.56m x 2.74m)
A very pretty room which gives access to the bathroom on this floor. NB: This room would work well as a dressing room to bedroom 3 and this whole floor would make a lovely principal suite.

Bathroom 7' 6" x 5' 8" (2.29m x 1.73m)
Traditional style bathroom with panelled bath and wash basin. Room for free standing storage. Access to eaves (unmeasured).

To the front of the property is an area of off-road parking providing space for three vehicles. To the rear is a gravel driveway which we understand belongs to this property and gives access to the detached garage and provides additional off-street parking. A gate at the rear takes you through to a pretty hidden south facing courtyard garden with a very private raised area for outdoor dining. There is a useful, pretty wooden store with power and lighting that could also be used as a home office or studio.
