Tenure: Freehold

A charming attached cottage within the Scotney Castle Estate offering beautifully presented accommodation of over 2,000 sq ft

The former lodging of Scotney Castle Estate's game keeper, Sweetbourne Cottage has recently undergone significant extension and complete refurbishment throughout by the current owners. The property now offers a superior quality finish whilst retaining the style and character of a country cottage with such original features as the Victorian fireplace in one of the bedrooms.

Externally the property is of mellow brick and hanging tile elevations under a tiled roof. Internally the cottage is a comfortable and stylish home benefiting from beautiful unique features including French Oak flooring in the entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room and upstairs master bedroom. The timber was sourced in France and shipped to a Mill in Kent where the extra wide planks were cut to size.

Further to the above, the beautiful oak staircase, timber framed French doors and a country style kitchen are complimented by modern features such as the inset downlights, then effortlessly blended with Farrow & Ball tones giving the house a modern, contemporary feel.
