This is a wonderfully attractive 15th century house that every viewer will surely fall for. Dowle Street Cottage is an excellent example of a Wealden Hall House featuring a wealth of exposed heavy timbers and an abundance of character that one would expect of a property from this era.
The property has been lovingly cared for and improved by the present owners who have updated the kitchen and bathrooms to more contemporary styles, whilst retaining all of the character throughout the property.
You have an entrance hall with heavy oak front door, kitchen/dining room with French doors leading directly onto the rear patio, stunning drawing room with an inglenook fireplace and a contemporary wood burning stove. The ground floor has the en-suite bedroom, then there is a galleried landing with space for a small study area, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room and a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
Outside, the cottage is approached via a five bar gated entrance onto a long driveway that sweeps past the front of the house leading to a detached double garage and parking area.
The front garden boasts a wealth of mature trees and shady lawned areas along with a lovely lily pond. The rear garden is landscaped with patio, lawn and well tended borders and a small orchard. There is also a 28’6” x 12’7” (8.69m x 3.84m) detached outbuilding to the rear of the house that benefits from planning consent.
Dowle Street Cottage is set back from the road in a small country lane on the outskirts of the sought-after village of Pluckley, a historic rural village situated in a most beautiful part of the Kent countryside famous for its orchards and farmland and, in particular, being the setting chosen for the 1990’s television series, The Darling Buds of May. The village enjoys two historic pubs, Church, Post Office & General Stores, butcher’s shop and a well-respected primary school. The area is rich in natural beauty with an abundance of public footpaths and horse riding routes, providing an amazing playground for the outdoor enthusiast.
