A delightful detached family house built in 1934 and situated on an extremely desirable private road in Otford village, a short walk from the mainline station and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Over the last 26 years the current owners have extended and improved the house, it is beautifully presented throughout with good size rooms and a lovely garden, with far reaching views of the Downs. The property is a fine example of Arts and Crafts style architecture with natural materials complemented by features including leaded glass in iron casement windows set in wood, wooden wall and ceiling beams and heavy oak doors with iron fittings.
The gabled oak front door opens into a generous hallway with solid wood flooring, stairs to the first floor and doors leading to the reception rooms. To the front of the house is a useful study with a built-in corner unit and there is a spacious dual aspect family room/games room which could have a number of uses. The dining room is also dual aspect and has an attractive fireplace with wooden mantle. Across the hall, the sitting room is an elegant room with a fireplace taking centre stage. Off the sitting room is a conservatory with a vaulted ceiling and tiled floor, which enjoys a splendid view of the beautiful garden. The kitchen/breakfast room, at the rear of the house, is well designed and fitted with a comprehensive range of oak wall and base units with granite worktops over, there is a range of Miele appliances including gas hob, fan oven and steam oven and an integrated sink and drainer. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
From the entrance hall, a wooden staircase with attractive carved wooden balusters leads to a half galleried landing. When the owners extended the house they created a large master bedroom with wonderful views to the front. Off here is a dressing room with built-in mirrored wardrobes and this leads to an en-suite bathroom with a corner bath and separate shower unit. The second bedroom overlooks the garden and benefits from an en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms also overlooking the garden and a good-size family bathroom.
To the front of the property is a well-manicured lawn with flower beds and a rockery, and an in-and-out drive with additional parking provided by a double garage with a side door access. There is a wood shed to the rear of the garage. Brick entrance steps lead to the front door.
The rear garden is a most attractive feature of the house, approaching ½ acre and with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There is a patio running adjacent to the back of the house providing ample space for alfresco dining. There is also an outside W.C. and a boiler room with water softener and a useful storage shed/cupboard. The lawn is beautifully maintained and has deep flower beds with a selection of colourful plants and trees. There is an ornamental pond and a summer house which provides the perfect spot to admire the view. In the back section of the garden you will find a vegetable patch and a greenhouse as well as further lawned areas.
