A beautifully presented 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom period property set in a semi-rural location just outside Langton Green. The house has been recently renovated and extended to provide fresh, contemporary accommodation alongside original features. The loft and/or garage could also be converted, subject to the necessary consents, to provide further accommodation and the house is within close proximity to both Langton Green and Speldhurst Primary Schools.
2 Waterfrets Cottage is a truly lovely family home. The current owners have sympathetically and tastefully refurbished the entire property, whilst also completing a substantial two storey extension, resulting in spacious accommodation and well proportioned rooms - all beautifully presented in a style that has very successfully blended contemporary elements with the building’s original roots. The rear garden is an excellent size and the garage, currently used for storage, could meet a number of needs if further accommodation were required. The house is warm and welcoming with strong internal and external space.
The versatile accommodation sees the front door opening into the welcoming first reception room, which in turn leads to an inner hallway. This provides access to the ground floor accommodation which includes a second reception room, with its open aspect to the front of the house, a utility room, where a WC, laundry appliances, butlers’ sink and the boiler are located and the recently completed extension, home to the contemporary fitted open plan eat in kitchen - a beautiful space with stone worktops, quality integrated appliances and space for cooking, dining and relaxing. French doors lead out to the large rear garden.
Upstairs, there are two good size double bedrooms, a beautiful family bathroom and a very impressive master suite with large bedroom, ensuite shower room and dressing area.
The accommodation throughout is light and bright - elegantly finished and with further scope for additional conversion of the loft and/or garage space, subject to the necessary consents.
To the front of the property are two off-road parking spaces, and to the rear there is further allocated parking. The rear garden is a very good size, with a large area of stone terrace and lawn, with an additional bordered area at the rear of the garden, perfect for compost and garden waste. The garden has a lovely wooded backdrop, again emphasising the rural aspect of the property. The separate garage, situated in the rear garden is currently used for storage, but could easily be converted into a home gym, teenage den or home working studio, subject to the necessary consents.
The thoughtful renovation and refurbishment are what really sets this property apart. Beautifully presented throughout, it has a truly welcoming and calming feel, embracing its period roots whilst also having a fresh, contemporary feel. The current owners are a growing family, and have created a home that really meets those needs with the open plan kitchen, the separate sitting room, the exquisite master bedroom suite and the safe and generous rear garden. The ample off-road parking means that the house is also highly practical. The further potential that the garage offers is also exciting - if a separate home working space were required, the space could easily be converted to provide access from the rear garden. The house is set in a lovely location, with a rural backdrop from every aspect and yet with the popular villages of Langton Green and Speldhurst within easy distance.
Langton Green is a popular village on the western fringes of the vibrant spa town of Tunbridge Wells with local shops, church, pub, community sports club/recreation ground and an excellent primary school. Tunbridge Wells is just over 2.5 miles distant and has an array of restaurants, leisure facilities and shops, including the historic Pantiles, the elegant Georgian colonnaded walkway believed by many to be the most pleasant place in Tunbridge Wells to browse, shop, eat, drink and stroll. There is also a fast and frequent train service to Central London from the mainline station. The area benefits from excellent independent and state schools, including those in the much sought-after Kent Grammar system. The impressive, award-winning Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 45 minutes' drive away and if you want to escape to the coast, then the lovely seaside towns can also be reached in under an hour.
Stairs up from the inner entrance hall lead to the three double bedrooms, the master of which has two windows overlooking the garden, a dressing area with inbuilt wardrobes and a dedicated ensuite bathroom, all beautifully presented. The other two large double bedrooms have an outlook to the open farmland that borders the property. The family bathroom, fitted with tongue and groove wall panelling and a bath with shower over is a good size, and there is access to the part boarded loft from the hall landing.
