Property SummaryLintern Cottage is a very pretty stone cottage in a delightful rural setting backing onto open countryside in the hamlet of Lottisham. It has been recently extended and refurbished with exceptional attention to detail and is presented in immaculate condition. Beautiful, double glazed sash windows fill the rooms with natural light.
The lovely kitchen, at the rear of the cottage, overlooks the garden and countryside beyond, with cream fitted units and wood worktops - and a perfect spot by a window for a breakfast table. This leads through to a spacious utility/boot room, with a lovely pale stone floor and a door to the garden, and then to a cloakroom with a marvellous dog shower – perfect for a rural lifestyle! A separate dining room with stripped floorboards and a multi-fuel burner is the place for family lunches and suppers with friends. The sitting room is spacious and airy, with wide French doors opening into the garden and a contemporary wood burning stove.
Upstairs, the beautiful double-aspect master bedroom is extremely spacious and light, with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and a stylish en-suite bathroom. A second double bedroom has its own bathroom and the third bedroom is currently an office.
A gravel driveway leads round to the front of the cottage and provides ample parking. To the side, a stone garage with a pitched tiled roof has potential to make a charming studio/office, or simply remain as useful storage space. A terrace at the back of the cottage is positioned to take in the views and perfect for al-fresco meals. The cottage is surrounded by spacious flat lawns, edged with picket fencing and laid hazel hedging, and open countryside stretches out as far as you can see.
The small Hamlet of Lottisham is very close to the sought-after village of Baltonsborough. The village has many facilities including a Parish Church, farm shop with Post Office, popular pub - which has a visiting Fish and Chip van on Thursday nights bringing the villagers together, and a primary school and active village hall.
