Situated in the heart of the tranquil hamlet of Rolvenden Layne, this beautiful 3 bedroom detached period cottage with wonderful mature gardens offers everything you can imagine from a truly country retreat, and yet is within easy reach of the village of Rolvenden and the historic town of Tenterden.

Grade II Listed, this 3 double bedroom property can only be described as the epitome of a quintessentially charming Kentish cottage. Downstairs, there is a good size cosy sitting room with snug area and wood burner, a bespoke country style kitchen with Rayburn, lovely dining area with huge inglenook fireplace and a useful boot room, which links the main part of the house to a separate outbuilding currently used as a home office, utility area and store. In the past, this useful additional area, which has a shower room, has been used for a home beauty business, and it certainly offers the potential as garage space, an annexe, holiday let or for dual occupancy, subject of course to any necessary permissions. This property also benefits from parking to the front and cottage gardens that are in perfect harmony with the character of the house.

Situated in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by wonderful unspoilt countryside and only 13 miles from the coast, Rolvenden Layne with its renowned gastro pub is the ideal base for anyone looking for a welcoming rural retreat, and yet is just a short drive from the village of Rolvenden and the historic Cinque Port towns of Tenterden and Rye with all their many amenities, making it a peaceful, but very convenient place to live.

Sitting Room 21' 7" x 11' 7" (6.58m x 3.53m)
The welcoming, spacious sitting room with its brick fireplace and wood burner exudes warmth, and is a delightful place to spend cosy winter evenings. Lovely bay window with shutters to the front. Patio doors to the rear give access to the pretty brick patio at the back of the house.

Dining Room 12' 1" x 11' 10" (3.68m x 3.61m)

Kitchen 12' 1" x 9' 7" (3.68m x 2.92m)
The country style kitchen with butler sink, free standing large dresser and sideboard, fits perfectly with the character of the cottage and has lovely views over the pretty garden to the rear. A gas fired Rayburn provides the cooking, heating and hot water. Walk-in larder. Doors to staircase and boot room.

Boot Room 11' 10" x 4' 1" (3.61m x 1.24m)
This useful, enclosed, glazed roof boot room is ideal for shoes, coats, bags and dogs! Doors give access to the front and rear gardens and the outbuilding which houses a shower room, utility area, office and store / garage.

Outbuilding (see floor plan for dimensions)
This building is divided into a number of different spaces. To the front is a room currently used as a store, but which has in the past been used as a treatment room for a beauty business. As such, there are two radiators and a window to the side. Double doors at the front mean that this space could be used for garaging. The remaining space consists of a separate shower room, utility area where there is storage, a sink and space for a washing machine and dryer, and to the rear, a home office area which has lovely views over the garden and double doors that open out onto it. This building certainly offers the potential for annexe or holiday let accommodation if desired (stpp).

To the side of the house, a gate takes you through to a beautiful, mature south west facing cottage garden which is enclosed by natural hedging and is completely in keeping with the character of the house. Three old fruit trees not only bear apples and pears, but also frame the view from the house. A brick patio at the back of the house makes a lovely sunny place to sit, eat and relax, and a mill stone and water well make interesting features.
