The Property

The Old House is a most charming period cottage thought to be, in the main, over 500 years old and was in part, over those years, an animal shelter and cattle shed; while later on the author of a local book resided there and wrote all about the cottage and indeed the village of Bilsington. This cottage really does encapsulate the quintessential village cottage, boasting some wonderful features to include an inglenook fireplace, smugglers step, exposed walls and wood floors. Whilst this is a typical Kentish cottage, with some low beams, it does, however, offer deceptively spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor there is a custom built kitchen with modern wall and base units, carousel and deep pan drawers, integral washing machine, granite worktops, butler sink, handmade Delft tiles and a super Italian stone floor; a pretty sitting room with an impressive inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling; a separate equally charming dining room also full of character plus a stylish bathroom beautifully presented with roll top bath, and corner shower cubicle. Upstairs are two double bedrooms both with lovely views to the front and one with a fireplace and cloakroom/wc. On the second floor is a large bedroom extending across the width of the property again with super rural views. The pretty private gardens are accessed via a traditional cobbled courtyard. Owned by the neighbouring Knights Cottage, this courtyard space is enjoyed by the three adjacent properties as a communal area with full rights of access allowed. The lawned gardens are then located to the side of the property being fully enclosed with a paved area and a garden shed, plus the oil tank is also positioned here. An outside brick built room houses the oil fired boiler.
