'Beckets' is a simple detached cedar clad bungalow situated in the tranquil setting of Bethersden village. An original sawmills workshop from the 1920s, it was converted in the early 1960s into a property. Since then, two extensions have been added to enlarge the property and this has provided further spacious living accommodation. There is the possibility of further extension - subject to planning. The property is positioned opposite open fields and has far reaching views across to the hills in nearby Charing. You are only a short walk from many wonderful countryside walks including the famous Bluebell Wood and there is also a private fishing pond close by which is secluded and peaceful making this home ideal for the keen angler. Set back from the road and secluded by a well positioned hedge there are two separate drives providing ample parking as well as a single garage. Inside there is a bespoke kitchen/diner with under floor heating, which is a fantastic space with plenty of work surfaces and cupboards along with a very useful moving island. There is also room for a dining table and from the kitchen you have access to your sunny rear garden via french doors enabling you to dine al fresco in the summer months but still keep contact with guests. The lounge is a wonderful, cosy room with wood flooring and a beautiful wood burning stove taking centre stage. The stove also provides the central heating and hot water for the property. Along with these rooms you will find the three double bedrooms, an office and family bathroom. The good size windows and patio doors keep this home bright and airy all year round and the addition of solar tubes on the roof which provide hot water during the summer months plus further insulation in the cavity with sheep's wool, really makes this home economical to run too. Outside you have some useful outbuildings, a lovely patio area and a mature garden this is the perfect place to enjoy all year round. Bethersden is situated between Ashford and Tenterden via the A28 and is famous for its marble and Stevenson's rocking horses. Pluckley rail station is only approx. 2 miles away with links into Ashford for the International station and into London. There are further transport links all close by including the M20. The village centre has a shop, post office, butchers and deli, hair salon and even a cookery school! There are numerous farm shops also close by along with two very good pubs. Within a few minutes walk there is the Bethersden tennis club and the recreation grounds and for families with children there is a local nursery and primary school both with good Ofsted ratings. Agents note: Please note the property is of non standard construction with steel frame and timber.
