Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bubblestone Farm is an enchanting Grade ll listed 16th century detached cottage nestling on Otford Green with views across to the famous listed Otford duck pond and the historic church of St.Bartholomews. Attractive elevations are part brick and part vertical tiled under a peg tiled roof, with a deep catslide roof to the side. An original barn, with later extensions that sits to the side of the cottage serves as additional living accommodation with a private garden, parking and private access. The current vendors have undertaken a programme of renovation to Bubblestone farm which has blended flawlessly with the original features of the period. In addition to the detached barn there are two further outbuildings, a pitched roof garage and large timber work shop. The gardens that surround the cottage are nothing less than a pure delight, a myriad of colour and rose arbours, hidden seating areas, paved walkways, and a ‘secret’ garden complete with the original wishing well.
To the side of the cottage is a secluded shingled area for additional parking and access to the garage and workshop.
The cottage accommodation is arranged over two floors with an abundance of exposed beams and latched doors. On the ground floor the light and comfortable sitting room boasts a magnificent inglenook, there is a separate dining room with a small inglenook which is open plan to a study area, a superbly fitted kitchen with an original leaded celestial window looking up to the first floor, a utility area, and a luxuriously fitted bathroom. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling, and the third bedroom is currently used as a large shower room but could be reinstated as an additional bedroom.
A note of interest, during the renovation of the cottage the vendors exposed what appears to be a simple sketch of a farm and the church. The drawing was discovered behind panelling above the kitchen door.
The detached barn has private side access and garden area. Internally, there is a light and airy sitting room with a full wall of bifold doors which open onto the patio, an open plan kitchen/dining room, a shower room, and a spacious double bedroom. The barn has separate services to the cottage. Read more
