Pears, plums and even a vine­yard

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

Buy­ers will be charmed by sweet Ap­ple Tree Cot­tage, just on mar­ket in a large plot in Smar­den.

The Grade II listed cot­tage has a guide price of £675,000, four bed­rooms and plenty of char­ac­ter.

The prop­erty is warm and com­fort­able, but some parts are a lit­tle dated and the agent con­sid­ers that a buyer could ex­tend or re­fur­bish to add value.

Buy­ers will love the pe­riod fea­tures, which in­clude a cat­slide roof at the back, the ex­posed tim­bers, in­glenook fire­places and latched cot­tage doors.

There is a draw­ing room and sit­ting room with an in­glenook fire­place.

The din­ing room has a re­cess which has been used as a bar area and the kitchen looks out over the back gar­den.

There’s a util­ity room, with a walk-in pantry and a gar­den room.

A back porch is usu­ally a great spot for muddy boots, but this one has also played host to the fam­ily pi­ano.

Ap­ple Tree Cot­tage in Cage Lane stands on a plot of half an acre.

It is on the mar­ket with Lam­bert and Fos­ter. You could have a try at mak­ing your own wine at this de­tached home which comes with a small vine­yard.

Five-bed­room Blakes­bourne, in Petham, is part of a small and ex­clu­sive res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment built in 1998.

It has nearly an acre of grounds, which in­clude an or­chard with ap­ple, pear, quince and plum trees and a small vine­yard planted with Ger­man vines. There is large grav­elled park­ing area lawns, well-stocked flower borders and a de­tached triple garage.

Inside, a large en­trance hall leads to a sit­ting room with fire­place and bay win­dow over­look­ing the gar­dens. French win­dows lead to a con­ser­va­tory. There is a kitchen/ break­fast room, util­ity, a separate din­ing room and two down­stairs cloak­rooms. On the first floor is the mas­ter bed­room with built-in wardrobes, separate dress­ing room and en suite. The guest bed­room also has an en suite shower room. There are three fur­ther bed­rooms and a fam­ily bath­room.

The house is five miles from Can­ter­bury and is on to the mar­ket with Jack­son-Stops & Staff at £1.1m.
