Hawkhurst £725,000

Louisa Lodge West is a charming, semi-detached former toll cottage set in the heart of Bedgebury Forest, accessed by a private gated road. The well-kept garden, full of roses and herbs, blends seamlessly into the woodland vista and even has its own working well. Inside, the house is full of character, with beams, vaulted ceilings, open fires and arched windows. A pretty arched doorway leads into a large, stone-floored hallway with a high vaulted ceiling and a corner cast-iron fireplace. The more formal drawing room has an open fireplace, wooden flooring and forest views. The dining room is wonderfully coy, with a picture bay window, open fireplace and access to the loggia and snug. The farmhouse-style kitchen has a Rayburn cooker, a large butler sink and the original terracotta tiled flooring. Upstairs, there’s an en-suite master bedroom and three further bedrooms sharing a family bathroom with a shower and claw-footed bath. Fine & Country 01580 715000

Upton Farmhouse is Grade II Listed period farmhouse believed to date back to about 1710 and with a fine Georgian façade. In the heart of the Alkham Valley, enjoying superb views to both front and rear, principal rooms include a drawing room and dining room both with cast-iron log-burning stoves, a farmhouse-style kitchen with a ceramic tiled floor and a scullery with doors to the courtyard and rear garden. A walk-in store cupboard is currently being used as a gym area and there’s a brick-floored cellar approached via the reception hall. A galleried first-floor landing leads to the master bedroom and three further bedrooms, all with stripped pine doors; the family bathroom has a central French roll-top bath on ball and claw feet, ‘his and hers’ period wash hand and a corner shower cubicle. On the second floor are three further rooms which could be used as lounge areas or bedrooms served by their own bathroom. The enclosed garden has a brick-block patio leading to lawned areas. To the front is a gravelled driveway which would accommodate up to six cars. C R Child 01303 267421
