Description: Originally a late Wealden Hall House and converted to its current structure between 1490 and 1530, Tudor Cottage is a very pretty Grade II listed detached cottage with most attractive external elevations of brick and tile hanging beneath a tiled roof.
The property has been well maintained over the years, with the roof having been renewed over the last 5 years, and internally having been improved, including a new kitchen, to provide well presented and spacious accommodation with good ceiling heights throughout that combine some lovely period features with modern day tastes. The cottage offers excellent scope for further improvement and enlargement (subject to the necessary consents), and also benefits from having a detached garage, off road parking and a private, west facing rear garden.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors including on the ground floor and entrance porch, a sitting room with an impressive inglenook fireplace, a dining room with a feature fireplace, an inner hall, a newly fitted and well appointed kitchen/breakfast room, a garden room, a store room/utility and a cloakroom. On the first floor there is a spacious landing leading to a master bedroom, which benefits from a useful storage room, a further double bedroom and a spacious family bathroom.
To the front of the property there is a pretty garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and plants. There is a picket fence and a gate which leads to a brick path leading to the front door. To the side there is off street parking leading to a detached single garage. A close board gate leads to the delightful private rear garden, which is west facing and not overlooked. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and includes some lovely mature shrubs and specimen trees, as well as a mature yew tree. There is terracing to the rear of the house which is ideal for outdoor entertaining and the garden has fencing and hedging to all sides.
