Vine Cottage is a charming Grade II listed cottage, with a wealth of period features, including wooden casement windows, exposed timber beams and a traditional inglenook fireplace. Situated within a conservation area in the village of Sarre, to the north-east of Canterbury, the property has been a much loved home to the current owner for close to 50 years. The cottage has a wonderful feel to it and its picturesque appearance is a delight.
The cottage is of brick and flint elevations beneath a tile roof, and is attached to its neighbour, another pretty period house.
The property opens directly into the good-sized sitting room, which has exposed beams and is arranged around the inglenook fireplace to one end,

A door from the kitchen leads to the lobby area with access to the bathroom and a door to the garden.
Stairs from the sitting room rise directly to the two bedrooms, which are both double aspect with dormer windows to front and rear.
To the front, the cottage is set back behind a white picket fence. There is an area of grass with shrubs, trees, and decorative flowers and a brick path leads to the front door.
The rear garden provides a lovely setting for the house with a large, well-kept lawn and mature shrub borders surrounded by a tall hedge. A sheltered terrace sits behind the house, and there is pedestrian access to the side.
