This fascinatingly unique cottage challenges convention in some ways and provides a wonderful home in doing so.
This is a home that cries out to the romantic within you, says, 'let's get together and tweak the nose of conformity and have fun doing it!'
It is a detached cottage for those who love the unique, the idiosyncratic, for dreamers and thinkers, for artists and savants and most of all it's a place for those who want a home to be very and personally special.
It is in fact a family home, you'll see that as you walk around it, one that is set within a beautiful village, that of Sutton Valence and the age of that name is easy to believe as you look at the charming buildings that tell you, people have enjoyed this view across the Weald of Kent for many centuries. Known by many for Sutton Valence School this is a village surrounded by glorious Kentish countryside and footpaths will introduce you to some of it. Take a stroll past orchards of fruit, you may catch sight of blueberries ripening on a farm and wildlife will be close by.
The cottage enjoys a lovely view across the Weald from the first floor rear bedroom, that captivating vista awaits the lucky occupant and to the side the pretty church forms a backdrop to a quaint scene of timbered cottages wending their way up and along the lane.
As you walk into this cottage the living and dining rooms greet you, wooden floors beckon with glowing aged appeal and a fireplace sits awaiting the cycle of seasons to once more burst back into heart and toe warming life.
Explore downstairs and the beamed kitchen, home to that Aga, awaits. Windows seem to keep appearing as you explore the nooks and crannies of this space, there is a charm here and a quirkiness that is in keeping with all four floors of this home. Step out of the door and a passageway weaves around the house. Bistro tables are the order of the day, perfect sentinels by which to perch with a good friend be they of two legged or many paged variety.
In truth, this is a home that needs to be experienced, for only then will you appreciate the magic and the charm. Two bedrooms on the first floor are so individual, the bathroom nestled between. The attic room has headroom that is a challenge for the longshanks amongst us, except at the apex and yet forms a beautiful bedroom that is unlike any other and is all the more endearing for itGet in touch if you like this home.
