To the left you will find the utility room with adjoining studio that allows access to the lower ground floor workshop. To the right you step into the attractive fitted and equipped kitchen with its walk-in pantry and cloakroom. The living/dining room enjoys a dual aspect and opens in turn into the cosy sitting room with its wood burning stove, beyond is a garden room that overlooks the south facing lawn with its far reaching views to the Kent estuary. Upstairs are three good bedrooms and a modern shower room.

The views are fantastic, the sunsets spectacular, and you can even walk to the pub !
