Pretty as a picture is Bagshot Cottage, a Grade II-listed house set in the centre of large gardens in a quiet rural spot.
The three-bedroom cottage with detached studio annexe is within the Lees Court Estate, a historic country estate near Faversham.
Built in 1500, the timber-framed house has been beautifully restored to a very high standard by the current owners.
At the front of the house are the large sitting room and the dining room. Each of these rooms is double aspect, has beamed walls and ceilings and a large inglenook fireplace.
At the back of the house, with views over the garden, is the kitchen, with stunning hand-built units and marble worktops. There is a butler style sink and an oil-fired Rayburn is set within an exposed brick fire-place. A door leads to a utility room and to a shower room.
The three bedrooms are all on the first floor, the master bedroom having its own inglenook fireplace, which is fitted with a log-burning stove. Also on this floor is the family bathroom, which has a freestanding roll top bath as well as a large shower cubicle.
The hard work has already been done in the 0.6 acre landscaped garden which surrounds the house. Buyers will find manicured lawns, specimen trees and Elizabethaninspired box hedge gardens. The handy studio annexe has underfloor heating and a shower room.
This a home completely ready for the new owners to enjoy.
