Eyehorn Hatch Cottage is a fine detached country house of brick elevations under a mellow clay tiled roof. The property has been upgraded and refurbished by the current owners to provide a most comfortable and efficient home with a new heating and hot water system installed in 2017, with an oil boiler supported by solar panels and a multi fuel stove. The property is finished and presented to a high standard, with light, airy accommodation and clean, neutral décor throughout
On the ground floor there are three comfortable reception rooms. The 22ft sitting room has a dual aspect and a brick-built fireplace, while there is also a formal dining room and a splendid conservatory/garden room. This was built by the current owners and has much exposed oak, a roof lantern and French windows to the terrace.
The kitchen is fitted with attractive wooden units, integrated appliances and an Aga, as well as a brick-built fireplace with a multi-fuel stove.
On the first floor there is a galleried landing, leading to three double bedrooms, including a generous master with an en suite shower room. There is also a family shower room with a large walk-in shower unit.
The property is located in a beautiful rural location, between the villages of Oad Street, with a pub and craft centre and Borden which has a local pub, a primary school, a village hall and a parish church. Within easy reach is the bustling town of Sittingbourne which provides a good selection of shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities.
The M2 iand M20 are close-at-hand, while the well-connected road network provides easy access towards the Medway towns and the county town of Maidstone. Mainline rail services are available at Sittingbourne, with direct services to London St Pancras and Victoria (from 58 minutes and 1 hour 10 minutes respectively).
The property stands 20 metres back from the lane with a large gravel drive for parking. There is a large outbuilding to the side which includes a double garage and workshop and two storey granary, currently used for storage, which has planning permission for conversion to ancillary accommodation (SW18/500498) granted 17 April 2018. This would provide a kitchen/living room with a double bedroom and en suite on the first floor. Also attached to the building is a utility room and log store.
To the front of the property there is a lawn with attractive borders. There is a terrace and carp pond at the rear and beyond extensive lawns dotted with many fruit trees. There is a garden studio and stable. Beyond a five bar gate leads to a grass paddock.
