Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on the edge of the village of Challock in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pested Cottage is set in beautiful and well-tended grounds of approx. 1 acre, fully enclosed by hedging and surrounded by orchards and open farmland.  The small country lane on which the property is located has several public footpaths giving direct access to the surrounding countryside and woodland. 

The village has a thriving community with a pub, Post Office/stores, barn shop, village hall, playground, church and a primary school with an OFSTED rating of outstanding.  Further local convenience stores and amenities such as doctors and dentist can be found in the nearby villages of Wye and Charing, with a more extensive range of shops and services and highly regarded schools in the market towns of Faversham and Ashford, and the historic City of Canterbury, all of which are within a reasonable proximity.  Ashford International Station provides a High Speed train service to London in 37 minutes and a Eurostar connection.

The chalet style property has the majority of the accommodation on the ground floor and has been extended and refurbished to make the most of the countryside surroundings.  The spacious living room has a feature open fireplace with exposed wooden beam, tiled hearth and houses a multifuel stove.  To the front, two windows overlook the private front garden and to the rear, triple French doors overlook the main garden area with views over the countryside beyond.  

The stunning double aspect kitchen/dining room extension was added by the owners and boasts a handmade kitchen with large feature island, solid oak worktops and range style cooker.  Again, triple French doors make the most of the views and the window to the front overlooks the vegetable garden. 

Three double bedroom are located on the ground floor along with two shower-rooms, each with toilet and basin.  Upstairs is the master bedroom which occupies the whole of the first floor.  There are two large built-in storage cupboards, one of which has access to the eaves where there is further storage.  There is also an en-suite bathroom.

To the front of the property is a cottage style garden, mainly laid to lawn with flower border, hedging and a winding path from the pedestrian gate, and side access to the rear.  Vehicular access is via a gated driveway to the side of the property which leads directly to a detached garage with office/workroom (currently used as a craft room), with toilet and sink.  There is possible potential for conversion to an annexe, subject to the necessary planning approval. 

The driveway continues to the rear of the garden where a double cart lodge and large barn/workshop (currently used as a games room) are located.   The main garden comprises large lawned areas, several flower and shrub borders, a wild-life pond, patio area, a variety of mature trees including fruit trees such as cooking apple, conference pear, plum and cherry and a separate vegetable garden.  This area has a greenhouse, established raspberries, asparagus and rhubarb, as well as ample beds for annual vegetables.
