The Cottage, Roman Road, Marsh Green, Edenbridge
    3 bedroom detached house for sale
    The Cottage is an immaculately presented three bedroom detached property on the private, single track old Roman Road, a no-through lane about a mile south of Edenbridge and surrounded by open fields. The property originally dates from the late 1800s and was substantially extended in the 1990s, with original Victorian details including leaded windows and decorative brickwork carefully duplicated. Oak was used extensively and can be seen on some floors, the staircase and throughout the upstairs in open supporting beams, lending a charming cottage-feel to a house with very contemporary proportions.

    A solid oak door leads into the Dining Room, so the current owners generally use the recent hardwood stable door at the side of the house. This leads into a smartly fitted utility room and adjacent downstairs cloakroom. The utility leads in turn to the fully bespoke, oak fitted kitchen with a double butler sink and Britannia range cooker. The floor was recently retiled with Italian ceramic tiles, which add to the feeling of warmth.

    An internal passageway leads back to the dining room, or it can be crossed to a downstairs bedroom suite consisting of a large bathroom, dressing room and bedroom, the latter is currently used as a delightful study, with French doors leading into the garden. Off the dining room are two reception rooms: a ‘snug’ or TV room with an original fireplace and Morse gas ‘wood burner-style’ fire. Opposite is a more expansive drawing room featuring a substantial fireplace and ‘Franklin’ multi-fuel burner. French doors with glass surrounds provide a panoramic view of the garden.

    The first-floor landing is large and includes a fitted study area currently used as a home office. The two upstairs bedrooms are of a good size and feature the aforementioned structural oak beams; leaded windows afford excellent views of the garden or open fields. Also upstairs is a second bathroom of a good size and incorporating both a bath and separate power shower. A half-door in the bathroom and a further three on the landing provide access to extensive eaves storage.

    A feature of the property is the landscaped garden of about ¼ acre. The garden is bordered by and includes a mix of native, ornamental and fruit trees, deep flower borders and shrubs. The large Victorian patio is perfect for entertaining and smaller covered patio and morning sun trap extends the al fresco season. To the front of the house is an attractive oak framed Heritage double garage, with parking for an additional four cars.

    The Cottage is on the literal edge of the High Wield AONB, numerous public footpaths lead from the Roman Road and provide immediate access to open country and woodland.
