Property description

Lilyvale cottages


The current owners have lovingly cared for, extended and improved this pretty cottage since purchasing in 1990, creating a contemporary home but retaining the character with bespoke bay windows, tile-hung elevations and an open fireplace, complemented by a fully-fitted quality solid wood beech 'Smallbone' kitchen including top of the range appliances. On the open plan ground floor there is a lovely u-shaped reception room with open fire, a fitted kitchen and dining area with extensive glazing, as well as a useful shower room. The first floor has a very impressive master bedroom with large dressing room and double doors to a balcony. In addition, there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.


Garden and outside area


The rear garden is a real delight, mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs, magnolia tree, fruit trees and bushes together with vegetable patch and raised beds. There is also an attractive patio, summer house and sheltered seating area enjoying extensive countryside views. The front garden is sheltered by neat hedging with a brick block drive for two cars leading to double garage and workshop.


Location


This property is situated in the popular village of Smeeth, which is surrounded by open countryside and close to the Kent Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is a village primary school, a village store and post office and easy access to local public transport. The nearby town of Ashford offers supermarkets, leisure facilities, cinema complex, McArthurGlen Designer Shopping Outlet and Ashford International Train Station.
