Stable Cottage dates from 1874 and has attractive elevations of brick with a pattern of burnt headers under a clay tile roof.

A canopy porch with new oak front door leads to a sitting room of considerable character with a feature fireplace (currently sealed), exposed brick and painted doors with ancient hinges; a large five-bay window fitted with slatted blinds overlooks the square and church. A wide door opens to the kitchen/dining room with mellow terracotta floor tiles, exposed ceiling timbers, a large window overlooking the square and a leaded light window to the rear. There is free-standing kitchen furniture with a sink unit, and space for a range cooker. An opening leads to the rear hall with door to a cloakroom, with white suite and heated towel rail.

From the kitchen a staircase rises to the first floor landing where there is a door to the master bedroom, with vaulted ceiling, and an airing cupboard. French windows open to a wonderful roof terrace which provides a secluded spot for relaxing outside, with sun most of the day. The second bedroom, has two windows and is fitted with a good range of wardrobe and drawer storage. A stylish bathroom is fitted with a white suite with roll top bath, heated towel rail and Travertine floor and wall tiles.

Lenham nestles at the foot of the North Downs in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stable Cottage is well located close to the church in the heart of this thriving village, which is a rare example of a medieval village still retaining excellent local amenities.

Centred on a picturesque square, Lenham provides boutique shops, hair and beauty salons, village store, butcher, bakers, post office, pubs, a library, medical centre and schools; there are golf courses at nearby Leeds Castle and Ashford. Canterbury, Maidstone and Ashford are readily accessible and offer a broad range of facilities, including excellent schooling in both the private and state sectors.

The M20 (Junction 8), accessed via the A20, is 5 miles distant and gives fast access to London - Canary Wharf is just 44 miles. The village station has services to London and Ashford International, from where the High Speed service to St Pancras takes 37 minutes. The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone, the Port of Dover and Ashford International provide services to the Continent

The property is approached from the centre of Lenham into the brick-paved Church Square, where there is unreserved parking for the residents of the square.

To the front is a stone flagged terrace with access to the front door. At the rear of the property a door from the utility area leads to a small courtyard which is south and west facing; a door from here leads to the outdoor utility/store room, with power and plumbing for a washing machine.
