We are delighted to bring to market this characterful, detached four bedroom period cottage, which is bursting with charm and original period features throughout. Discovered in the picturesque village of Oare, nestled at the end of Oare Creek, just a short distance from the market town of Faversham – this captivating home offers semi-rural living, with all the amenities required close by.
The cottage boasts several period features throughout, such as; exposed brickwork, beams, fireplaces, a well and exposed floorboards. The current owners have lovingly decorated and improved their home over recent years. The property has been extensively decorated, a lovely new kitchen installed and bi-fold doors fitted to open onto the recently landscaped rear garden. All of this combines to create a warm and welcoming family home.
On entering the property you discover the inviting entrance hall. From the hall you access the open plan kitchen and dining room. The kitchen diner is a great size as it’s area spans the width of the house – creating the perfect place for entertaining or spending time as a family. The dining room retains several key features, including; exposed beams, an exposed brick chimney breast and wood burning stove.
From the dining room, steps lead down to the cosy family room. This room boasts further original features and leads into the shower room and conservatory – which is currently used as a utility room. The main living room is at the rear of the house and contains one of the most interesting features of the property – an old well, which has been covered and lit internally to create an unique seat or table.
Upstairs the landing leads to the four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are great sized doubles and the fourth is an accommodating single. The master bedroom contains fitted wardrobes and benefits from countryside views to the front of the property. The spacious family bathroom is also found off the landing, which includes bath, w/c and ‘his and her’ sinks.
Outside there is a small garden to the front of the property and a large, recently landscaped garden to the rear. The rear garden is laid mostly to lawn with a patio. It includes a brick retaining wall, raised flower beds and a timber shed. The garden would make a great family garden and would be perfect for summer barbeques and spending time with friends and family.
The attractive village of Oare is located just 1.3 miles from Faversham. The village retains two great public houses, St. Peter’s Church and a marina at the end of Oare Creek. The picturesque landscape of Oare Marshes is right on the doorstep. The marshes form part of a registered nature reserve and special protection area, as well as a site of special scientific interest. They along with the Saxon Shore Way footpath and both Oare and Faversham Creeks provide idyllic countryside to be enjoyed.
