Rare opportunity to acquire a stunning period cottage in the beautiful village of East Malling.
Believed to be built circa 1500, the front of the property was once used as a butchers shop; the current owners have enjoyed this delightful property for just over 40 years and it has been a much loved and cherished family home.
As you can see from the floor plan, the property is deceptively spacious; comprising a large kitchen/diner, sitting room with feature fireplace and formal dining room, in addition to a separate utility, two shower rooms plus access to the cellar.
To the first floor, the period charm continues with a huge landing and three bedrooms, one with W.C and two with built-in cupboards. The top floor houses two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
One of the most exciting aspects of this property is the further development potential it offers. As you can see from the photos there is a good size barn to the rear of the property and planning consent has been granted to convert this into a 1 BED ANNEX for the next owners to enjoy, plans can be viewed on the Tonbridge & Malling website using planning ref: TM/11/01408/LB.
Parking certainly isn't an issue here with space at the rear of the property for several cars.
East Malling itself is renowned for research in fruit and the lovely surrounding countryside reflects this, with an abundance of local paths taking you past gorgeous orchards and vineyards. The property is also a short walk to the local railway station, with direct links to central London.
The M20 and M26 are easily accessible ensuring quick communications with the M25, Gatwick, Heathrow, City and Stansted airports, Canary Wharf, the Channel Tunnel and Ashford and Ebbsfleet International Stations (Ebbsfleet to St Pancras station in 17 minutes).
A stunning period home, which would offer it's next occupants a fantastic opportunity to make it their own family home for many years to come.
