Property Overview

Set on the boarders of East and West Farleigh in a semi rural position this quaint one bedroom farmers cottage offers a great opportunity to get on the property ladder or downsize to a lock up and leave home.

The property offers a lounge, kitchen, wet room style shower room and utility space downstairs plus a large double bedroom to the first floor. Character with beams offering a cosy cottage style throughout the property also benefits from an outside courtyard style garden and workshop style shed. We understand from the vendor that they have had indicated to them a consideration for off road parking being provided via the verge at the junction with Lower Road and Kettle Lane. Further enquiries should be made with the planning office.

East Farleigh is highly sought after and offers a rural way of life with a short distance of Maidstone with all its amenities. Popular pubs and hostelries are to be found nearby and East Farleigh train station within a mile.

We cannot wait to show you round utilising our accompanied viewing service from our local Barming office.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
