Tenure: Freehold

This well presented, detached property is a hidden gem in a desirably tranquil location. Secluded yet not isolated, this cottage has an ample, private garden and surprisingly spacious accommodation with all the period features you would expect, alongside the comfort of modern facilities. Exposed beams, fireplaces upstairs and down all add to the warm and welcoming atmosphere of this charming house. You enter a secret garden, well stocked with cottage garden plants, with a traditional brick path leading up to the front porch. An arbour with rambling roses and scented jasmine surrounds the enclosed patio, which is situated to the left hand side of the property, in front of a substantial garden room. An inglenook fireplace with intricate wrought iron back plate dating back to 1649 is at the heart of the cottage. A log store/herb garden, situated to the rear of the property, is conveniently close to the inglenook and kitchen. The property benefits from recent but sympathetic improvements: the kitchen and bathroom have been renovated in keeping with the feel of a period property and a bespoke made shower unit downstairs creates an inviting family or guest facility. The cottage has gas central heating throughout. 

Ivy cottage can be found at the top of Silverhill, with communal parking area near the original entrance to Homewood School. The pedestrian footpath runs behind the properties on Silverhill and provides easy access to the front of the property nearby. 

The historic town of Tenterden, locally considered to be the jewel of the Weald, offers a surprisingly wide range of popular shops and cafes as well as a variety of public houses and restaurants. Ivy Cottage is conveniently close to shops, schools and public transport.
