A charming detached cottage with secluded gardens originally part of the Ightham estate and situated in the peaceful hamlet of Ivy Hatch.
Scatheswood House is believed to have been built in the 1700’s and was originally two cottages, forming part of the Ightham Mote estate. The cottages were converted into one dwelling over 50 years ago by the renowned local builders, Durlings.
It is a charming character cottage built of brick and ragstone with leaded light windows all under a clay Kent peg tile roof.
The property retains many original features, including the solid oak herringbone parquet flooring, timber beams, a baker’s oven and open fireplaces.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors with ample storage space. The kitchen has a range of units with a large pantry and useful utility room. There is a large dining room, with a door leading out to the paved terrace. Leading from this room is the delightful triple aspect drawing room which has an open fireplace and views out to the front garden. The study is a delightful room with a stunning vaulted and beamed ceiling, a brick faced fireplace and has access outside.
On the first floor, there is a spacious master bedroom which features a charming arched window. There are three further bedrooms and two family bathrooms.
The house is approached off the country lane into a gravelled driveway, with a double garage to the left hand side of the property. The house is situated in a secluded position, backing onto Scathes Wood and with a delightful outlook onto fields and National Trust land opposite.
The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with an attractive brick and ragstone wall enclosing the front garden. There is a paved terrace area which wraps around the house, providing an ideal space for entertaining.
