Full description

Keith Ashtons take immense pleasure in offering for sale this simply beautiful three bedroom grade II listed cottage, with origins believed to date back to the 16th century. Surrounded by a plot of approximately one acre, the cottage has been subject to a quite remarkable restoration and now boasts a stunning blend of old meets new, with huge attention to detail.

6 Boyles Court Cottages offers a commanding position within this protected lane. Spectacular gardens flank the property, and are complimented by a lovely hand-built covered seating area which is ideal for outside dining and entertaining. In addition to the covered seating area you will also find an elevated terrace area which leads directly from the kitchen. Various paved pathways lead to all areas of the garden, which also offers a timber framed office with power, light, telephone point and CAT 5 connection. Gates within the garden lead to the property's own protected woodland, which once explored gives rise to fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and towards the distant South Weald Park.

The property offers a wealth of charm and character, with many of the rooms having exposed brick and beam work to walls, beamed ceilings and latch key doors. A fantastic Inglenook fireplace with inset wood burner and beamed mantle in the focus point of the main sitting room and a particularly interesting feature of the second sitting is a small glazed inspection window, showcasing original wattle and daub. The superb kitchen/diner is fitted in a comprehensive range of bespoke wall and base units, incorporating displays all complimented by granite work surfaces. Glazed French style doors from the kitchen lead onto an elevated terrace.

The Cottage has undergone an immense refurbishment programme, with huge attention to detail paid by it's current owners, due to it's grade II listing. We firmly believe that this is a truly unique opportunity to acquire such an outstanding property.
