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.
