DESCRIPTION 

Little Springfield is a quintessentially English Country Cottage. Set on a plot of approximately 1.75 acres, it lies between Marden and Goudhurst and has been in the same family for almost 90 years. The family previously ran a grocery business from the Barn, delivering to the local community by horse & cart. There is potential to convert the large barn, or even seek planning permission for another house on the land to the side of the plot. In addition, there is potential for equestrian facilities, or to leave it all as it is and enjoy the garden surroundings which resemble parkland.

LOCATION 

The property is set in the popular Wealden village of Marden with its range of local shops and amenities. The mainline station provides excellent commuter services to both London (approx 1 hour) and the coast. The county town of Maidstone is about 20 minutes drive away and Tunbridge Wells is approximately a 25 minute drive away, both offering a wider range of shopping, leisure and educational options. There is a primary school in Marden as well as nursery facilities and an excellent doctor’s surgery.
