Property Flirt

Cute, charming, perfectly formed… this coquette of a cottage in Offham has it all. If you think you're a bit of a property guru, go on then - guess the price!

Well, colour me happy – ain’t this cottage picture postcard pretty? Cute, charming, perfectly formed… this coquette of a cottage in Offham has it all. Don’t you just want to pick it up and pop it in your pocket?

So, you know what to do people – take a look at the pics below, and I’ll give you some tasty little hints so you can guess the price and claim your £1000 prize! Er, not really. We do this purely for the glory folks.

Right, shall we grab the keys and take a peek?

So what we have here is a most attractive and cleverly extended, 4-bedroom, Grade II listed semi detached cottage set in a quiet part of the village with far reaching views and delightful outlook over the cricket ground. Howzat!

This 16th Century semi detached cottage has colour washed and exposed square timber frame panels on the outside and on the inside there are many period features including inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers and oak latch doors.

The gorgeous double aspect Kitchen/Breakfast/Family Room makes the perfect kitchen disco space for when you’re entertaining and in the summer you can throw open those double doors to the garden to enjoy your evening G&T.

The sumptuously, lounge-able sitting room has good height ceiling timbers a substantial inglenook fireplace with woodburner on stunning raised flagstone hearth – hygge me up right here!

Upstairs the lovely light and airiness continues. There’s 4-bedrooms, including a Master Bedroom that has a rather super outlook to the front over the cricket ground, brick inglenook fireplace and, most importantly, a Dressing Area you step down into with built in cupboards.

Offham is brilliantly located smack bang in the middle of Sevenoaks and Maidstone and conveniently close to the M25 and M20 for travel. It’s also famous for having, what is believed to be, the only medieval quintain remaining in the country, located on the village green. What’s a quintain, you say? Glad you asked. It’s what they used to help to train a knight to use a lance. It consisted of a shield and dummy which suspended from a swinging pole. Chaaaaaarge!

The property is set on the edge of the popular village of Offham opposite the cricket ground and within just a short walk of the (Ofsted rated Outstanding) Primary School and Church. There is also a pretty darn decent pub, The Kings Head, in the village, you lucky things.

Then of course you’ve got all the brilliant grammar schools in the area – Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Maidstone, as well as being commutable into London.

Righto! Are you ready with your final figure? Get it set in your mind, argue it out with the cat (or whoever’s sitting next to you) and click here to see how close you got!
