Property Flirt

A period property in a prime location - how much do you think this super cute cottage is worth then?

Fancy yourself as a latter day Barbara from The Good Life? Then this Property Flirt is for you. There’s ample raised beds space to grow wonky courgettes that your children will refuse to eat at this deliciously cute cottage, in Fordcombe, just east of Tunbridge Wells. Press your nose up to that pretty little window and prepare to be charmed…

Chocolate box sweet on the outside, suprisingly spacious on the inside, this property has bags of character, not least because it was formally the Old Post Office and Village Shop (it’s Listed). 7 Stone Row is perfectly positioned, literally opposite the local Primary School and you’ve go the Chafford Arms pub within walking distance. It’s that perfect mix of rural setting but with easy access – Hildenborough Station is close and you can get into Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge or Sevenoaks quick as you can say the end of summer sales are on!

Downstairs, you’ve got a hallway, family room, dining room and kitchen breakfast room. Under the stairs you’ll find some stone steps leading you to a very handy store room and… *shudders with excitement* wine cellar! With so many cute details this has a country farmhouse feel, but managing to be so with a modern vibe. Think high beamed ceilings, open fireplaces… but with up-to-date touches like tri-fold doors into a courtyard terraced area (this is my favourite spot…but we’re coming to that). Upstairs first – master bedroom with en-suite shower room and three further bedrooms.

Now, shoes back on, I’m dying to show you the outside. This terraced seating area looks just right for me and my G&T. You go ahead and explore the gardens, I’ll be right behind you…

See, look – lovely area to grow your own veg and stunning views over the North Downs. Did you see the barn/garage which would make a perfect home office or little guest room…So, fellow nosey parkers – and budding Barbaras – how much do you think this cutie is on for then? Let’s find out right here.
