An opportunity to acquire a unique detached country cottage situated on the outskirts of Staplehurst.
Caine Grove dates back to 1925 and is built in the style of a Colonial plantation house. The present owners have carried out an extensive programme of refurbishment to include new concrete floors, new UPVc windows and general upgrading to bring this beautiful cottage up to date. The cottage is unique in that it is situated in the centre of wrap-around gardens and the accommodation is well laid out and spacious on the ground floor, providing a magnificent drawing room and separate day room / dining room. The gardens form a feature of the property which are spacious and well laid out and there is a large open parking area in front of the double garage.
The property is set almost equal distance between the popular Wealden villages of Staplehurst and Marden. Both villages have a range of local shops and amenities including mini supermarkets, primary schools and doctor surgeries. In addition to this, both villages have a mainline station providing commuter services to London Charing Cross, Waterloo and Cannon Street (approximately 55 minutes). The County town of Maidstone is approximately 9 miles away providing a wider range of both shopping and leisure facilities. There is an excellent selection of local primary and secondary schools, both state and private, and the property falls within the Cranbrook School catchment area.
