Quirky Whimbrel Cottage has just come on to the market, complete with three floors full of old world charm.
Named after the large coastal wading bird, the whimbrel, the Grade II listed home is in Wingham, near Canterbury. It is now on the market with Charles Bainbridge Estate Agents priced at £235,000.
It has an external door leading to a small lobby. On the ground floor there is a 13ft double aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace, woodburning stove and a bressumer beam. The sitting room has a door to the garden. A second door from the sitting room leads to a well designed and pretty kitchen with units built to suit a sloped ceiling. The up-to-date units are cream, the floor is tiled and an integrated oven and extractor hood is set into a corner.
Head up to the first floor to find a light and airy dining room with a fine fireplace.
Also on the first floor is one of the bedrooms and the family bathroom, which has a separate shower cubicle.
On the top floor are the final two bedrooms, both built into the eaves and with sloped ceiling. This floor has lots of useful built-in storage. The house is exceptionally well maintained and is in very good decorative order. It is in the centre of Wingham, set back from passers by.
The 120ft garden is in three main areas comprising, firstly, an attractive courtyard adjacent next to the house, secondly a main garden area with lawn and mature borders and thirdly a kitchen garden with vegetable beds and fruit bushes.
Zoe Lawton-Barrett, of Charles Bainbridge Estate Agents, said: “This is an enchanting Grade II listed period cottage offering atmospheric and beautifully presented accommodation. The property is arranged over three floors, boasts delightful gardens to the rear and is set well back from the road in a central village position.
“The cottage provides deceptively spacious accommodation.
“Wingham is a thriving village with a comprehensive selection of local facilities and has easy access to Canterbury and the A2 to Dover and M2 to London.
“The surrounding countryside provides lovely walking and cycling.”
Wingham Wildlife Park is within walking distance.
