A delightful Grade II Listed detached thatched cottage in a central position in the highly regarded village of Wingham. Formerly two dwellings of 16th and 18th century origins, Yew Tree Cottage features thatch, exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and inglenook fireplaces. The thatch was renewed by local master thatcher Glen Charter in 2013. The property offers versatile and atmospheric accommodation including an impressive sitting room with inglenook fireplace and fitted real flame gas stove. The dining room also has a handsome fireplace and the kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the house opening to the garden. In addition, there is also a useful w/c on the ground floor. On the first floor are three principle bedrooms, two of which feature timbered and vaulted ceilings, a study/occasional bedroom four and the family bathroom. The cottage would now benefit from some general updating.
Externally the property has mature gardens with paved seating area from the house, to the side of which is a further paved area with greenhouse. The principle garden then includes grassed areas with a wide range of inset mature shrubs, trees and bushes. There are timber garden stores and the garden is enclosed by wood panel fencing. Pedestrian access can be gained to both sides of the property to the pavement.
