However, there are plenty of contemporary touches too, including an electric oven and grill and a four-ring ceramic hob beneath an extractor, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine, and overhead recessed LED spotlights.
The design also incorporates room for an upright fridge/freezer and a stainless steel sink and drainer adjacent to picture windows and the external door opening onto the delightful, terraced rear gardens. White ceramic tiles have also been fitted above and below the cooking and preparation spaces.

With off-street parking space for two vehicles, the property sits a little back from the road, fronted by a traditional courtyard garden bordered by low walls and with a distinctive circular design. A covered wood shed sits to the right of the front door - currently painted an eye-catching blue - with established shrubs and hedges to the left screening the house from neighbouring homes.
However, some of the property's most attractive features are to the rear, where the kitchen door opens onto steps leading down to a south-facing terraced garden, including a flagstone patio area providing a real sun trap adjacent to raised beds ideal for planting vegetables.
A second flight of stone steps then leads down to another flagstone area – currently used as an outdoor workshop area - where a timber picket gate opens onto a substantial enclosed space, half laid to gravel and the other half to lawn.
With privacy ensured by established green borders and head-high timber fence panels, this area of the garden also boasts three timber storage sheds as well as a large two-roomed log cabin, currently used as a gym and private reading room - the latter easily converted into a home office if required.
The property sits at the end of a delightful, private, block-paved cul-de-sac off the Kent Weald village's Goudhurst Road, within easy reach of walks in open countryside to the north and south.
Amenities within easy reach include the award-winning village store –recognised among the best in the UK - and a pharmacy at the centre of the villiage, which provides a home delivery service if required.
The village is also served by the family-run Gun and Spitroast Inn overlooking the village green, offering a good selection of local Kentish ales and draft beers as well as a home-cooked food including traditional pub favourites.

Maidstone is roughly a 13-mile drive to the north with Tonbridge is also within relatively easy reach by road, about eight miles north-west.
The nearest train station is at Paddock Wood approximately five miles from Horsmonden, offering regular and direct Southeastern services to Ashford International, Ramsgate, Strood, Dover and London Bridge, London Cannon Street and London Charing Cross – the latter normally no more than an hour away.
Horsmonden is served by the village's primary academy – rated as a “good” school at its last Ofsted inspection in 2016. Secondary schools also within reach include the grammar schools in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone. The property falls within the Cranbrook Grammar School catchment area, which has been rated by OFSTED as Outstanding.
