A lovely old-world cottage set in large gardens.
Description - An opportunity to acquire a lovely and unspoilt semi-detached cottage enjoying large gardens with lovely views to the rear. The cottage would make an ideal project for someone as there is ample room to both extend and update, although a relatively new combi boiler has been fitted providing full central heating throughout. Whilst there is no immediate parking, it is considered that, subject to planning permission, it would be very easy to put vehicular access in as per the other properties in the same area.
The property is set on the outskirts of the popular Wealden village of Staplehurst with its range of local amenities including post office, supermarket, primary school and mainline station providing commuter services to London Charing Cross, Waterloo, London Bridge and Cannon Street (approximately 55 minutes).
