Set in the heart of a super village, this grade II listed home has an appeal that is hard to ignore.

'It's a lovely looking house' a passer-by commented as we took photos and it truly is. Beyond that, this Grade II Listed home is interesting inside and sits at the heart of a super village community.
Believed to date from the mid-18th century it has been owned within the same family since 1975. In its time it has been noted as 'old post office', as 'new post office' and has been associated with Orpins the village stores but now sits proudly separate.
Explore it and you find a pleasant blend of beams, wooden floors and spacious rooms. There is a gentle quirkiness that endears it to you and a sensible practicality that makes the space it offers delightfully useful.
We are always drawn to homes that provide what we call 'frivolous space', room that adds something special to life because it isn't essential but is valuable and when you step into this house for the first time you are greeted by 'frivolous space', a reception that draws you in and is a 'room' in its own right.
The living room is super and the kitchen provides a family space to live daily life within, have breakfast and dinner here if it suits your routine.
Modern desires are catered for in this Listed building, a cloakroom downstairs, perfectly placed by one of the back doors so guests can easily find it when they are enjoying time in the garden and this is a garden that, with a westerly aspect, encourages use.
There's a spacious utility that is a perfect room for dogs to return to without traipsing muddy paws through the home.
Upstairs the rooms are all impressive and again, delightfully for a period home, there is a stylish ensuite, a capacious bathroom which sensibly caters for a washing machine and the landing broadens to again provide 'frivolous space' a perfect study area if required.
We mentioned the garden and it's a pleasant place, kept simple currently it has areas to enjoy, to set aside for individual purposes and there is plenty of parking plus a covered 'garage' that sports doors and is multi-functional, workspace, storage and/or home for a car.
Village life is about many things and here, in the heart of it, you are at the confluence of a wonderful network of footpaths. Endless opportunities present themselves to roam working countryside, stroll through a deer park and head for picture perfect village pubs (there are two good ones 'on your doorstep' already in the village).
The village shop provides post office and most things you need for day-to-day life. As a 'Costcutter' the advantage is that, in their own words 'Since May 2018, the Co-op has been the exclusive wholesale supplier to Costcutter Supermarkets Group. Through this wholesale partnership, our retailers have access to a range of Co-op Own Brand products. Our shoppers tell us that they love having a range of quality, ethically sourced Co-op products to choose from in their local Costcutter, alongside their favourite brands.'
There are two local primary schools, hairdressers and an intriguing, dazzling and practical selection of shops at Evegate Business, Retail & Artisan Village which sports a lovely coffee shop and deli as well as a micro pub.
We may be a little biased, Smeeth and Brabourne is our base of operations after all, but this is such a great area to live in, access to Hythe and the coast, easy reach of Eurotunnel, of ferries at Dover and Ashford with M20 access and a 38-minute fast train to St Pancras.
If you are seeking a touch of character blended with rural life then this is a home that deserves serious consideration.
