Property Description

Full description

A superbly presented Grade II Listed cottage with a wealth of period features in a fabulous rural location. EPC N/A


The Situation 
The property is wonderfully situated in a rural hamlet of five houses located in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is surrounded by beautiful downland providing a wealth of walks, rides and cycle routes. Nearby villages provide necessary amenities, and the coastal town of Folkestone, six miles away, has a range of supermarkets, town centre and out-of-town shops, the high speed rail link to London (50mins), as well as access to the M20 and the Channel Tunnel. The medieval World Heritage city of Canterbury is within half an hour's drive, providing a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, plus the Marlowe theatre and many bars and restaurants, all within its historic walls.

The Property 
Little Shuttlesfield is beautifully positioned within this tiny hamlet offering exceptional downland views. The cottage, understood to date from the 16th Century, is mainly of timber-framed construction under a Kent peg-tiled roof, and has been completely renovated in recent years. The current owners have extended the property with a large live-in kitchen. The sitting room has a beamed ceiling, large, inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove. There are traditional brick floors, wood floors, a flint and brick wall, and many old exposed beams. The superb kitchen contains reclaimed pine cupboards, hand-built by local artisan Wesley Dadson, and has a large walk-in pantry and separate laundry room. Some of the original doorways do require you to bend on entering, however, the actual head height in all the rooms is excellent. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room, whilst upstairs in bedroom two there is a useful walk-in wardrobe. A magnificent oak beam runs through bedroom...
