Front, Bartholomew Lane, Saltwood, CT21

Set in the heart of the village, this surprisingly spacious family house enjoys a delightfully secluded setting at the end of a private footpath but with the added benefit of a garage and parking. The current owners have considerably improved the property during their ownership and it now offers attractively presented, light and airy accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions. This includes an entrance hall, dining room, sitting room opening onto the garden, well fitted kitchen, cloakroom, three double bedrooms and a bathroom. The house also has the advantage of ample storage throughout.

The setting in which the house stands is quite unique, it offers a rare level of privacy and is surrounded by other gardens so really does feel very peaceful. There is a generous garden to the front, a further area to the side with a vegetable garden and the rear garden, which faces south, provides a generous paved terrace, the perfect environment in which to relax and dine alfresco.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
