Embark on an enchanting journey to Old Rectory Cottage, nestled amidst 12 acres of lush woodland and vibrant bluebells, boasting its own private lake – a true hidden treasure in the heart of Kent!

Offered without any chain, this historic property, dating back to the early 1850s, has undergone substantial transformation, now offering nearly 5000sqft of flexible living space, including six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and additional conveniences.

As you approach via the grand gated driveway, lined with majestic trees, a sense of privacy and tranquility envelops you – here, you're not just acquiring a home, but an entire lifestyle. Ample off-road parking, two double garages, a barn, and garden sheds provide practical amenities alongside luxury. Step inside to discover two inviting reception rooms, each with its own unique charm, complemented by a well-equipped kitchen, a conservatory perfect for soaking in natural light, and various other delightful spaces including a formal dining room and study.

The lower level surprises with a versatile basement, currently serving as a gymnasium but ripe for transformation into a play area or home cinema, offering endless entertainment possibilities. Venture upstairs to find two luxurious en-suite bedrooms, alongside three additional double bedrooms and a single, each exuding character and comfort. Storage is plentiful, ensuring organisational ease.

Outside, the sprawling lawn invites leisurely strolls, while the woodland, adorned with breathtaking bluebells, provides a picturesque backdrop. The private lake, adorned with its own fountain and teeming with wildlife, offers a serene retreat for sunset views or alfresco dining. With southern exposure bathing the sitting room, kitchen, and conservatory in abundant natural light, every corner of this property exudes warmth and charm, beckoning you to make it your own sanctuary.
