6 Bull Lane Cottages is a pretty Victorian cottage, originally part of the locally renowned ‘Bayham Estate’ and forms one of a row of cottages copied from those seen by Lord Camden at Blenheim Palace in 1873.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a property in the hamlet of Hook Green, where property infrequently comes up for sale, the last comparable property being back in 2017!

The property has been well maintained, offers surprising space and excellent ceiling heights, and is decorated throughout with Farrow and Ball colours. It features beautiful original brick fireplaces, one housing a woodburning stove, stripped pine floorboards, a farmhouse-style kitchen and double-glazed wood-framed casement windows.

The house is entered via a pretty front door, featuring iron fittings, with a porch cover mirroring the wavy bargeboards of the gabled front roofline. This opens into a lobby area with stairs rising to the first floor, space for hanging coats/shedding shoes and a pine panelled door leading into the sitting room.

The sitting room features stripped pine flooring, a woodburning stove housed in a brick fireplace with tiled hearth and wooden mantle, and a window to the front. A part -glazed pine door opens into the kitchen/dining room.

The kitchen/dining room is reminiscent of a period farmhouse, with a terracotta tiled floor, painted faux ceiling beams, a stable style door to the rear courtyard and another beautiful brick fireplace, currently housing an oil fired Rayburn . The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units with cupboards and drawers, a twin bowl sink beneath a window to the rear, space for a washing machine, fridge and dishwasher. The dining area offers ample space for a six-seater table beneath rope lighting, with a window to the rear. An understairs cupboard provides space for a freezer and additional storage.

The first floor landing has a rooflight. The main bedroom is a beautiful room, with a fantastic view out from the front facing window, over the road to the open countryside beyond. This room features original pine floorboards, an original cast-iron fireplace, and a fitted cupboard over the stairs with pine door.

The second bedroom is at the rear, with an outlook over the courtyard, rear outbuilding, garden and fields/woodland beyond. The floor is of stripped pine boards and there are two fitted cupboards either side of the chimney breast, one being a useful wardrobe, and the other housing a new aluminium hot water cylinder, forming a useful airing cupboard. A loft hatch in the ceiling with fitted ladder provides access to the fully boarded loft running across the rear of the property, which is served by electricity and lighting.

The bathroom is of a generous size, comprising a white panelled bath with new Aqualisa shower over and folding glass screen, WC and basin. There is a window to the rear, oak flooring and skirting boards and part tiled walls. To the front of the house is a brick block driveway with a bin store and flower bed. There is an outdoor electric plug point, useful for electric car charging.

Directly to the rear of the house is a fenced, brick paved courtyard, providing access to a brick outbuilding, currently used as a studio/office, with a skylight, power, lighting and electric storage heater. A covered walkway/store with electricity supplied, leads to a door concealing the “secret” garden. This delightful garden is well screened with hedging and fencing and features flower bed borders, central lawn, a brick patio and access to an old privy, now forming a store for the oil tank. At the rear of the garden is a shed, fruit trees, a small pond and a greenhouse.

Hook Green is a rural hamlet boasting a highly rated 16th century pub and a network of footpaths into surrounding countryside, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bewl Water is nearby as well as many other local attractions including the Bayham Abbey ruins, Scotney Castle and Bedgebury Pinetum.
