This is a wonderful chance to purchase a bright and spacious detached stone cottage with three double sized bedrooms, sitting in large grounds in a slightly elevated position within the popular village of East Stour and enjoying some delightful views over the nearby countryside. The village boasts a hall, which hosts a variety of events and the 'Crown' Inn with accommodation and serving food. Not far away is the popular Udder farm shop with restaurant and the Kings Arms, which also serves food and has accommodation. Just a short drive away is the town of Gillingham with mainline train station and the sought after high school, which falls within the catchment area for the property. This charming property has been significantly transformed over the years from a modest cottage to a spacious and easy to use modern home - yet retaining a cottage feel - having been extensively and sympathetically extended to the rear. For the last twenty years it has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller, during, which time it has been exceptionally well cared for. The boiler was replaced two years ago with the oil tank replaced in the early years of moving in and more recently the en-suite has benefitted from a new mains shower unit. The well proportioned and well laid out interior must be viewed to really appreciate what is on offer, as well as the outside space with plenty of room for children and pets to let off steam. An early viewing is urged to avoid missing out on the opportunity to be the next resident.
