Full description

If you are looking for a country cottage with a large garden and views over farmland then this could be the home for you. The current owner has been here since the late 70's and carried out many improvements and also extended it twice shortly after buying it. We feel that there is also scope to further extend, perhaps above the side extension or to the rear, especially given the size of the plot which is approaching 1/5 Acre (TBV). If you have a dog or just like countryside walks then you will appreciate the gate at the back of the garden which gives access directly onto a public right of way across the neighbouring farmland and leads to the picturesque Mill Pond in Wateringbury. The current owner has more recently installed a new kitchen and bathroom so there is not much for the incoming new owner to have to do. We feel that this attractive mid 19th Century, semi-detached cottage is sure to attract a lot of interest, so please contact us early to avoid disappointment.

Situation - Wateringbury and Nettlestead are both situated by the River Medway between the Towns of Maidstone and Tonbridge. Wateringbury has a great community spirit with events such as the Summer Fayre and the Christmas Panto bringing the local residents together. If you like countryside walks or hacks then the surrounding countryside will be a delight to ramble over, whilst if cruising down the river on your own boat sounds more your thing then you could moor one in the Marina at the bottom of the village. Some local amenties include a primary school, restaurant and bar, public house, convenience store, petrol station and train station. The nearby town of Maidstone is the County town of Kent and as such boasts extensive retail, entertainment and leisure facilities in addition to numerous state and grammar educational establishments. The town has mainline train links via Maidstone East train station giving journey times to London of just over 1 hour. The town has links to junctions 5, 6 and 7 of the M20 providing road access to London.
