A charming Grade II Listed period cottage located in the centre of Sundridge village, within 3.5 miles of Sevenoaks town, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The owner has sympathetically modernised the property internally, retaining a number of period features and it is a most attractive cottage with tile hung elevations above a high plinth of stone. Three steps lead from the street to a porch recess shared with the adjoining cottage, which provides access to the front door of the property.
The front door opens into a delightful living/dining room with a secondary glazed window to the front and exposed wall and ceiling beams. There is useful built-in storage and a large inglenook fireplace with a Belgian enamel multi-fuel stove takes centre stage. There is solid smoked & hand-waxed oak flooring. This room is open to the kitchen which has been redesigned by the current owner with a bespoke Rencraft fitted kitchen and French oak flooring. Smart wall and base units are complemented with a granite effect worktop, hand painted tile splash-back and a butler sink with mixer tap. Built-in appliances include a Bosch fridge, a Bosch slimline dishwasher, a Neff electric combination microwave/oven and a Bosch 4 gas ring hob with extractor hood over.
From the living room, the solid smoked & hand-waxed oak flooring continues into a lobby with French doors opening to the garden. There is an opening to a study area where you will also find a Potterton gas central heating boiler and the HIVE central heating/hot water control unit. This area is also plumbed for utilities. The shower room has been updated by the current owner with a modern white suite comprising a large enclosed shower unit with power shower, a low level WC and a wash hand basin, this room also benefits from underfloor heating.
Stairs from the living room lead upstairs and into a double bedroom which is currently used as a second living room. There are dual aspect secondary glazed windows, exposed beams and a hatch provides access to the loft space. There is also a cupboard housing the hot water tank, and a fireplace which is currently boarded. A door from this room leads to the second bedroom which benefits from built-in storage. The bedrooms have secondary glazed windows to the front and rear.
The garden is a beautiful feature of the property, it is divided into three main areas and has views across the Darenth Valley. Steps from the French doors lead up to a paved area which is sheltered and has a brick outbuilding which is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A path from this section leads to a wooded area with a variety of mature shrubs and a summer house which is currently divided and used as a home office and garden storage. The third section of garden extends to the rear boundary.
