Vigo Cottage was once part of the Vigo public house which has now been converted into 2 properties, this being the left hand cottage as you look at the property. The accommodation is very spacious, indeed much more generous than most 1 bedroom cottages. Downstairs there is a good size sitting room with a fine inglenook and stove, a wide opening leads to the kitchen and there is a rear hallway with access to the bathroom and rear lobby. Upstairs there is a large landing/Study area and a double bedroom.

The cottage has a long rear garden, approximately 100ft., and there is pedestrian and vehicular access via the gate to the left. This leads to the rear garden and 2 private parking spaces at the far end of the garden. The property has double glazing and heating is via the stoves in both the sitting room and kitchen. Mains electricity, water and drainage and a liquid gas tank and pipe work is in place that could service a central heating system.

The Barn is adjacent to the cottage and is of quality traditional oak construction. It includes an open plan living area with kitchenette and shower room. The far end of the living area is divided off to provide a bedroom area. It has mains electricity and water.

Location - The cottage is located on the main road, but set back, and backs onto countryside. The owner has indicated that he owns the adjacent field and is happy to allow owners to have use of this space. It sits at the top of Vigo hill with excellent road links to the M20/M26 and in turn to the M25, London, Ebbsfleet International and the coast. The area is well served with excellent pubs, restaurants and other leisure amenities with the villages of Wrotham and Trottiscliffe nearby and Borough Green is about 3 miles distant with a good range of local shopping and other facilities. Borough Green has a mainline station serving London (Victoria) and Maidstone. Sevenoaks is about 9.5 miles with a mainline station serving London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.

The rear garden is about 100 ft long with a patio, gravelled area, a deck with covered store and shed and a large area of lawn. The owner has advised that as a courtesy he is happy for owners to make use of the adjacent field, although this will not be legally binding. There are 2 brick outhouses and a 15'6'' x 15'6'' lodge with power and water supplied.


Agents Note - Please note, there is currently a restriction placed on this property as part of its original planning permission. This states that the owner of the cottage must act as 'manager' for the adjacent pair of holiday-let properties. This restriction is currently in the process of being appealed by the present owner and their planning consultant has advised us that in his opinion he has a high percentage chance of a successful outcome. If it is not removed, our vendor is also owner of the holiday lets and is happy to provide documentation appointing the new owner as 'de facto' manager without any onerous obligations or responsibilities.
