Property description

Tenure: Freehold

IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES, WE REMAIN OPEN AND ARE ABLE TO FACILITATE PROPERTY VIEWINGS UNDER STRICT COVID-SECURE PROCEDURES. A delightful Grade ll Listed two bedroom cottage, set within mature and secluded grounds of approximately ¼ acre, in a wonderfully rural setting just outside the picturesque village of Lynsted. Chapel Cottage dates back to circa 1835, with a distinctive flint façade and pretty, arched windows offering a glimpse of the charm and character contained within.

The front door opens into a magnificent open plan sitting room and dining room, with a pleasant dual aspect. There is a stylish feature wall, with glazed ceramic tiling and an inset wood burning stove, complemented by elegant Rockett St George light fittings. A set of stable doors open into an inner hallway, with attractive natural slate flooring and underfloor heating, which continues into the kitchen, the bathroom and the garden room beyond. There are two bedrooms, one of which is a double room with a built-in wardrobe and an arched window which affords lovely views over the gardens. The bathroom is adjacent to the bedrooms and has been fitted with a beautiful, traditionally styled suite, including a rolled top, claw foot bath with a shower above it.

The kitchen is to the rear of the cottage and has been fitted with a range of splendid handmade units, finished in Farrow and Ball Vert De Terre, and set around woodblock work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances. A door leads from the kitchen to a dual aspect garden room, with additional kitchen units and a striking exposed flint feature wall.

The whole property is beautifully presented throughout and offers a sophisticated blend of traditional features alongside modern luxury, culminating in an utterly chic and stylish period home.


Chapel Cottage is set within a generous plot of approximately ¼ acre and is set back from the lane behind a pretty front garden, enclosed by post and rail fencing. A lovely reclaimed brick herringbone pathway, flanked by lavender border with attractive box hedging, leads to the front door, whilst a five bar gate opens onto a large driveway with parking for several cars. From here, a set of twin timber gates open onto an additional area of parking, ideal for a larger vehicle, such as a motorhome.

The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a Scandinavian ‘Living Wall’ forming the front boundary and mature trees and shrubs planted along the rear, combining to create a sense of both privacy and nature. Adjacent to the cottage, there is a reclaimed brick patio area, set beneath a grape vine draped pergola, with outside lighting and power, ideal for outdoor entertaining.


Chapel Cottage is situated just outside the village of Lynsted, on a peaceful, quiet lane and is surrounded by some wonderful countryside and farmland, making this an ideal location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Lynsted has an active, close knit community, with local clubs and regular events. There is a village pub, a community orchard and an abundance of local footpaths through the Kent countryside. The nearby town of Faversham is ideally located for coast & country, with excellent transport links including High speed rail links into London and easy access to the M2.

Community attractions include the famous annual Hop Festival (the town boasts the oldest brewery in the country) and a magnificent weekend-long classic car show. On the outskirts of the town, Brogdale 'The Home of the National Fruit Collection' stages regular events celebrating Kent as the fruit producing Garden of England.
