Dream Home of the month
Imagine living in a home like this, one that is believed to have 16th Century origins. How would you like to live in a home that harks back to one of the most intriguing periods of English history – the Tudors? It’s true that period homes have a history and charm that many people love – a chance to own a piece of history – and this is a perfect example.
You know that you are in for something special at first glance on this Grade II listed cottage in Loose, Kent. The black-and-white timbers outside are stunning, and just the first of the many period features that pack this wonderful home.
The beautiful beams are a feature of many of the rooms and a magnificent stone flanked fireplace in the main reception room will definitely be a talking point.
The house is spread over three floors, with 2 bedrooms and a nursery. Most rooms feature these beautifully coloured beams. All the bedrooms are beautiful, but the beamed bedroom with the angled ceilings is definitely something special.
The house doesn’t just keep its charms hidden inside. Externally the grounds are both generous and eye catching with fine terraced lawns extending towards a rear sun terrace. Unusually, this home benefits from generous parking with a wide driveway offering parking for two cars plus a substantial detached double garage which has a rear utility area inside. The front approach even has its own Tudor knot garden.
The village of Loose nestles within a picturesque valley setting just beyond Maidstone. The area is beautifully positioned to enjoy the wide ranging amenities of Maidstone yet is just seconds from stunning countryside. This area is an ideal base for commuters having selection of rail stations within easy reach plus the motorway network is only a short drive.
There are a choice of primary, secondary, grammar and private schools in the area which is also blessed with a selection of country pubs and restaurants – many within walking distance.
Holiday Home of the Month
DON'T FORGET TO CLICK ON THE SIDE ARROW ON THE PICTURE TO SEE ALL THE AMAZING PHOTOS! Appassionata, Le Marche, Italy Giacomo Leopardi estate consists of two uniquely designed, luxury properties, both set within five acres of landscaped gardens, close to the beautiful medieval town of Montefiore dell 'Aso. The five acre estate is home to two spectacular properties, the newly built Casa Giacomo and the newly restored Casa Leopardi. Both properties are on offer as fractional ownership, each buyer owns a share of their property, thus sharing all the running and maintenance cost with their co-owners. One of the main features of our shares in the Appassionata properties on Estate Giacomo Leopardi is that they don't just buy a share in a luxury property, they also have a share of the produce grown throughout the year on the Estate. Fractional ownership is fast becoming the smartest way to enjoy the benefits of owning a luxurious holiday home at a fraction of the cost of buying outright. As a lifestyle investment, fractional ownership makes sense. On average, a holiday homeowner only uses their property for 40 separate nights but pays for the entire year. Fractional ownership allows you to increase your buying power and significantly reduce the annual running costs by allowing a number of buyers to collectively own a luxury property and share maintenance fees.
