Property Information

Situated within the highly desirable village of Chislet is 'Rose Cottage', an endearing 18th Century, Grade II Listed residence occupying a substantial garden plot of 0.22 acres.
The property exudes charm with its alluring red brick and black weatherboarded elevations underneath a Kent Peg tiled roof. The characterful feel continues internally, greeted by a dual-aspect dining room which leads seamlessly through to the impressive kitchen/breakfast room with exposed timbers and a vaulted ceiling. A separate snug leads on from here with a very handy downstairs shower room adjacent, meaning this could be used as a guest room/fourth bedroom with ease.
The lounge features a large inglenook fireplace adding a wonderful sense of cosiness to a lovely size room.
Leading upstairs to the first floor and you will find a charming and tastefully modernised bathroom and two large double bedrooms, one with a dressing room. Bedroom Three is found at second floor level with a vaulted ceiling and stunning exposed timbers.
The huge rear garden is a gardeners paradise, well stocked with established flowers, fruit trees and shrubs, you will be forgiven for losing a few hours soaking up the sun in this picturesque oasis.
Extensive off-road parking is provided via the gravelled driveway to front which extends beyond double gates and leads to a timber, barn style garage with power and a first floor.
With far reaching views over fields, 'Rose Cottage' presents an exceptionally rare and 'one-off' opportunity to the market. Call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies, to arrange your viewing appointment.

The property borders the rural hamlet of Marshside, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty which features an extremely popular gastro pub called The Gate Inn. A plethora of countryside walks are available here.

The fashionable seafront town of Whitstable, with its boutique shops, fresh seafood restaurants, Oyster Festival and pubs is only 10 miles away.
