This is a home that provides a window into a different time and forms part of a village community.
This is a quirky home, an unusual one. It is somewhere that needs some tender loving care and yet promises to make you an intriguing home.
Harrietsham is home to Grade I listed St John the Baptist's Church, believed to date from the eleventh century. The village sits alongside the A20 amidst lovely countryside with Leeds Castle just down the road. Beyond that is Bearsted and access via Junction 8 onto the M20.
This mid terraced cottage is set back off the road amidst a group of houses that sit at a right angle to West Street. The situation speaks of a past world, one that has subtly changed and living here provides a link to how lives were once spent. Step out of either front or rear door and you take a path to discover your garden. Along the way you may pass a neighbour for a quick hello and catch up.
The village has a post office and general stores including a Co-Op. There is a Veterinary Clinic, Sunrise Day Nursery, Harrietsham Pre-School and Harrietsham C Of E Primary School. To enjoy a local pint of fresh unpasteurised milk, pop along to Ben and Holly's Little Dairy, another taste of how life would have been in the past perhaps. You can pop along to Parkwood Trout Farm if you want to enjoy some time with rod and line.
There's plenty to do and discover in and around the village before you venture further afield to Bearsted Green and into Maidstone.
What about the cottage itself? We mentioned it is quirky didn't we. As you walk in you'll notice that it isn't completely square, offset slightly, widening slightly; as we said a memory of a past time. It adds to the charm and, whether you choose this for your home or it is somewhere you are thinking of letting out, it will always be a home that is different. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, another staircase leads to a useful attic room.
The garden is a pleasant surprise when you first visit it. A short walk from the house, it is a great space and ready for some loving input as well. It provides that outdoor room we all look for and scope for design and purpose.
To find a house at this price is a challenge and so embrace the opportunity and delight in its quirks.Get in touch if you like this home.
