The property

This lovely cottage is an annex of the owner’s home in the quintessentially English hamelt of Oad Street, close to the market town of Sittingbourne in Kent.

Further down the hall you will find a spacious sitting room with country-style furniture surrounding a feature fireplace with electric fire.

The room also features patio doors leading out to the lovely garden with patio and lawn area.

Take a seat in this calming space on a warm evening and enjoy a delicious meal alfresco.

The kitchen can be found just off the sitting room and is fully appointed with a dining table in the centre.

Through a further door is the bedroom, with double bed and additional door leading out to the garden.
