This cot­tage in a pop­u­lar vil­lage ticks all the boxes for a warm wel­come.

The prop­erty, with sweep­ing southerly views and 2.5 acres, dates back to the days of El­iz­a­beth I and is Grade II listed.

A huge brick fire­place in the 16ft beamed sit­ting room has a bres­sumer beam over and a se­cond fire­place with wood­burner and bread oven is in the coun­try-style kitchen/break­fast room.

The din­ing room has doors lead­ing out to the gar­den at the side. A handy util­ity room and a shower room are also found on this level.

A 26ft con­ser­va­tory stretches across the back of the house.

The first floor ac­com­mo­da­tion is ar­ranged off an L-shaped land­ing.

All four bed­rooms are dou­bles and the mas­ter bed­room has di­rect ac­cess to a loft room, which has the po­ten­tial to be a home of­fice if re­quired.

A roll top bath is the cen­tre point of the fam­ily bath­room, with a sep­a­rate cloak­room on the other side of the land­ing.

A great sell­ing point for this his­toric home is the large plot, which has great views, pa­tios, lawns and fenced pad­docks. There are a num­ber of wooden stor­age build­ings, some with power and light.

Boughton Monchelsea is a short drive from Maid­stone.

The vil­lage is an an­cient set­tle­ment known for its im­por­tant his­tory in stone quar­ry­ing, which dates from Ro­man times.
