On the edge of the North Downs, late-Victorian Lilac Cottage is an instantly lovable home with views across the Elham Valley.
Beautifully refurbished, the four-bedroom detached house is in a hamlet outside Lyminge, near Folkestone and is priced at £695,000 with Hobbs Parker.
There’s lots of driveway parking and Sandling train station is three miles away.
Buyers will find an old-fashioned cottage garden at the front. This sunny spot is perfect for a lilac tree and comes complete with established rose arbour and lavender beds.
A 27ft x 13ft lounge is at the front and is triple aspect with fireplace and a wood-burning stove.
A door leads through to the 18ft x 17ft kitchen/breakfast room and there’s a large double aspect dining room at the back of the house, with french doors to the garden and another wood burning stove.
On the first floor is the master bedroom with bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. Three further bedrooms and family bathroom are also on this floor.
Buyers will love the large and lawned back garden, with its split-level Indian sandstone terrace.
There is a cascading water feature and at the bottom of the garden there is a workshop.
Alex Davies, of Hobbs Parker, says: “Combining countryside and convenience, this charming house comes with a large garden and lovely views as well as swift access to major communication links.
“It has been sympathetically remodelled in recent times, with many of the rooms enjoying fabulous views over the valley and countryside.”
