- Download Brochure
The Old Post Office is a quintessential Grade II listed cottage. Set on the edge of the village, the property has been sensitively restored and the current owners present it in a wonderfully pared back manner, allowing the features of the house to stand to the fore.
The main front door (there are two of them!) opens directly into the former shop, now a wonderfully bright and spacious reception room and flooded with light from a part-glazed roof and windows on three aspects. A most delightful room to curl up with a book in front of the coal-effect fire in the winter or equally inviting in the summer overlooking the gorgeous and colourful front garden. A door to the other side of the room leads to the garden.
A door from the drawing room leads into the kitchen, which is well equipped with custom built units and plenty of working areas. An exposed brick chimney is a focal point. Newly installed double doors lead out to the terrace, so convenient for al fresco dining! There is a useful cloakroom.
The dining room faces the front garden and has good ceiling height with plenty of honey coloured exposed beams. A wide brick chimney breast is a beautiful feature. This is the perfect place for cosy and informal dining. From the dining room a door opens to the generous reception hall, from where the principal everyday entrance leads to a parking area. A utility room is set off the hall.
Stairs from the dining room rise to the first floor landing. On the right is a lovely bedroom with exposed timbers and open fireplace. Adjoining is bedroom 2 with an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
This property has 0.3 acres of land.
The gardens are a delightful feature of the house. The front garden was professionally designed and planted in a traditional Old English style, with box hedging, old-fashioned roses and cottage perennials, creating a lovely setting and welcoming front garden.
To the rear is a large lawned area that backs directly onto adjoining farmland.
Dargate is a charming and peaceful village set amidst a beautiful area of countryside between the well serviced towns of Faversham, Canterbury and Whitstable. Together they offer a comprehensive range of leisure, shopping, cultural and educational facilities
There are excellent road and rail communications in the area. The A299 (1 mile) provides fast access to the M2 and trains from Faversham to London Victoria take from 80 minutes and the High Speed link to St Pancras takes from 65 minutes.
From the M2 (Junction 7): Exit and continue onto the A299 towards Ramsgate. Take the exit for Dargate/Waterham, which brings you to a slip road. Turn left, then left again and continue over the flyover. At the T-junction turn right into Dargate village. Just before a sharp left-hand bend turn left into the drive signposted Plum Pudding Cottage and into the garden through the five bar gate directly ahead. Please park there and do not continue directly up to the house.Read all
