Description

An enchanting three-bedroom cottage, built in the early 1800s and is bursting with period features including stripped pine latch key doors, an exposed brick open fireplace, and original panelling. The current owners have an eye for detail and embraced the character of this home whilst thoroughly renovating the property throughout, they have significantly improved not only the layout but installed two brand new luxury bathrooms and creatively enhanced the cottage with a neutral palette, and natural materials.

Situated in the village of Chilham overlooking rolling countryside, Bagham Cross Cottage is ideal for those that need to commute to London with the train station just a five-minute walk and the Cathedral City of Canterbury less than six miles away.

The formal entrance sits to the front of the cottage beneath a pitched canopy; however, the current owners use the side entrance which opens into a small boot room, which in turn leads through to the beautifully updated kitchen. There is an array of wall and floor units, finished with metro style tiles, solid wood work tops and set upon high quality porcelain floor tiles. The units surround a double range oven, and other free-standing appliances, there is access to the side of the garden and entrance to both the sitting room and conservatory, which is used as the dining room. Here one will find stripped pine flooring, an apex roof with decorative tie bars, and French doors to the rear garden, the room can be used all year round as has good levels of central heating.

The sitting room at the front of the property has an open fireplace encompassed by exposed brickwork, there are two cupboards, both of which have reclaimed doors which look perfectly at home in this period cottage. The room has slight division via wooden supports and could be used as a lounge/diner depending on individual requirements.

The stairs rise to the first floor where one will find a galleried landing with latch key doors leading to two double bedrooms, and a newly appointed family bathroom with roll top bath, Victorian style taps and vanity unit which complements the attractive flooring.

The main bedroom has been reconfigured and now incorporates a beautiful, luxury ensuite shower room accessed via a pocket door, the ensuite comprises of a walk-in shower, WC, vertical column radiator and basin set within a vanity unit.
