Property description

**beautifully presented** ** extended victorian cottage backing onto open countryside with spectacular views** **three bedrooms and three bathrooms**

Codlin Cottage is a Victorian property dating back to 1874 when it was a two up two down weather boarded famers cottage that was once part of Hewitts Farm. Now this delightful property has been totally reconfigured and extended over a period of time with no expense spared including new grey aluminium double glazing throughout and has been transformed into a charming three bedroom property which oozes charm and character with a modern twist. The ground floor offers a sitting room and dining room both with wood burning stoves, gliding glass doors flow through to a well-appointed kitchen for the chef of the family, a utility room and a large shower room. The first floor will not disappoint with the master bedroom enjoying a spectacular view over the local countryside and views as far as Canary Wharf, two further double bedrooms are just as pleasing with bedroom two having an en-suite shower room. The upstairs is completed by a family bathroom. There is an extensive mature garden of approximately 320ft being ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. ‘Codlin Cottage’ stands on the edge of Chelsfield Village and overlooks Chelsfield Lakes Golf Course to the front, adjoining open fields to the rear and side, thus commanding spectacular views. There is easy access to Junction 4 of the M25 and Chelsfield Railway Station is within 15-20 minutes walk adding to its appeal. We highly recommend this property for an early viewing so as not to lead to disappointment.
