Full property description

Dane Cottage occupies a generous plot of approx. 0.39 acres of lovingly landscaped grounds which wrap around the entire property and includes a 140 ft gated driveway.

It is conveniently situated a short walk into Ash with its local amenities and just over two miles to the cinque port town of Sandwich which offers high speed links to London.

The property dates back to the mid 1940s and still shows elements of this era within the original part of the property where one will find solid wood parquet flooring, picture rails, a bay window and a period glass cupboard built into an alcove.

Whilst sensitively extending, the newer additions blend beautifully and combines period charm with modern convenience. Open plan living areas, a sleek gloss kitchen and contemporary bathrooms are just a few of the enhancements evident.

The thoughtful architecture allows vaulted ceilings, light and energy to flow through the 1600 sq.ft property with open plan living areas rightly placed at the rear admiring views of the gardens. The space is balanced with four generously proportioned bedrooms and two modern bathrooms.

Every effort has been made to ensure the property runs economically with double glazing, solar panels, a wood burning stove and excellent roof insulation which helps towards energy efficient living.

The dual aspect kitchen breakfast room has an array of grey gloss units integrating all main appliances and has been finished with slim line composite work tops. An island overlooks the dining area which in turn leads onto a raised veranda. The kitchen is further enhanced by a well-appointed utility area and cloak room.

The split-level living room has French doors onto the garden, whilst the exposed brick chimney breast encompasses a wood burning stove.


Dane cottage occupies approx. 0.39 acres of beautifully landscaped rear gardens, it is accessed via a gated driveway which leads to a double garage with electricity and lighting.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with beautiful shrubs and borders of pretty flowers, with seating areas dotted around the garden.

Behind and to the side of the garage is a shingled area with raised beds and plenty of space for storage sheds or further vegetable plots.

The garden is further enhanced by a wooden gazebo offering shaded seating area, and a wildlife pond which is located at the front of the property.
