Property Flirt

Puckle Cottage in West Malling is a real corker. Tally-ho, property pervs! Binoculars ready?

A new house for those of you who like to perv at property! Guess within £5k of the asking price and get your stamp duty discounted on your next house purchase. Yes *cough*, really!

Puckle Cottage in West Malling is a real corker – and with that name, well quite frankly you had me at Puckle. But let’s look inside anyway. Binoculars at the ready?  Let’s go nose…

What we have here is a gorgeous Grade II listed, white weatherboarded detached cottage that’s been recently renovated – so all the charm of a period property with all the convenience and style of contemporary remodelling. Not only that but while it sits nicely tucked away in pretty secluded gardens it’s also within walking distance of West Malling High Street.

Puckle Cottage is full of character including many exposed beams, sash windows, timbers and brick fireplaces. It’s a three bed with a separate Sitting Room, Dining Room and Kitchen. Perfect for anyone starting out with a young family or if you are downsizing (from your mansion) and are after a swish stylish home with decent amenities and café culture on your doorstep.

Upstairs you’ll find 3 decent sized double bedrooms complete with wall timbers and brick fireplaces for that extra bit of character.

Location wise, West Malling is packed with lovely shops and restaurants (gorgeous eateries, independent shops and a monthly farmer’s market). Oh and there’s good local Primary Schools as well as the Grammar Schools of Tonbridge and Maidstone nearby. With Sevenoaks just to your west, Maidstone just to your east and London about an hour by train this property is in just about the perfect location.

The pretty garden has just the right combination of lawn, flowerbeds and a patio area for those essential sundowners. But the question is, how many spondulicks will you have to gather up to buy this fab pad? Flex your property finder muscle and add your guess to the comment box here. Then click here to see if you’re right…

      Hi Becky – pretty good guess – but remember this is within walking distance of West Malling High Street and also very commutable into London! Maybe a smidge higher… Thanks for playing!!!
