3 Bedroom Cottage (Now Let)
Maidstone, ME15 8FF
This Grade II listed 15th-century cottage is a particularly important building of more than special interest and one of a very small number in the UK. Once half of a Wealden hall house, it served as the buttery ( A buttery was a service room in a medieval house in which barrels, bottles, or butts of alcoholic drink were stored, and from which they were served into the main Hall.)
It is full of lovely features including beamed ceilings and walls, oak flooring and an open fire containing a new wood burning stove and original bread oven.
The accommodation comprises; L shaped sitting/dining room with feature fireplace and bread oven with oak patio doors leading to the lovely well stocked mature cottage garden.
There is a separate white fitted kitchen off the dining area.
An oak staircase leads you to the first floor, where you are greeted with two spacious double bedrooms, the back one looking over the gardens and the front one looking over the park, a third children's bunk bed room, and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle!
Externally the property benefits from a beautiful garden with a well. The garden is fully enclosed and has parking at the front of the house with private parking for at least 2 cars behind secure electric gates.
The cottage sits within 3 miles of Leeds Castle and within a minute’s walk of a discreet side entrance to historic Mote Park. Dating back to the Middle Ages, this mature parkland offers many beautiful walks (dogs welcome), a 30-acre lake for sailing, angling and model boats and a leisure centre with pitch and put, play area, skate park and indoor swimming pool. Main line train station, shops and pubs and restaurants in Bearsted village, 1.5 miles.
This is a very unusual property in an unique setting. It has been used both as a family home as well as a successful holiday let property because of its lovely setting.
The cottage can be let long term or shorter term holiday lets ( minimum 1 month) price quoted is for long term let.
