A well presented detached family house situated in a central position of this popular village within the Cranbrook School catchment area. Fircroft is a beautiful example of a detached 1920s double fronted property, providing well balanced family accommodation. The property is centrally located in the village of Sissinghurst within walking distance of all amenities. Fircroft is coming to the market for the first time in almost half a century, and is now time for another family to take up residency in this truly delightful home.

Many of the rooms have double aspect windows, allowing the property to be flooded with natural light, making it a fabulously bright and airy home. Outside, the gardens wrap around three sides of the house and are a real delight; expertly planted with mature shrubs, perennials and hedging, separate vegetable patch, fruit bearing trees and areas of lawn. Fircroft faces south so enjoys sun throughout the day in most areas of the gardens. A gardener's joy. The gardens amount to circa 1/3 acre in all.
