The apartment is located on the top floor of this impressive Period House which dates back to the late Victorian era. It is presented in good order and retains many original features including bespoke fitted cupboards, ornate balustrades, 4 panel doors and wonderful feature fireplaces.
To access the apartment you must enter through a communal entrance on the left hand side of the building and take the main stairs up to the first floor. The communal areas are very smartly presented and offer a pleasant first impression. The apartment itself is entered via a private door with your own internal hallway and staircase. The top of the stairs opens out into a spacious galleried landing which provides access to all rooms.
The kitchen / dining room is dual aspect and has been designed with vinyl floors, shaker style cupboards and patterned wall tiles. There is space for a dining table and views out over Sevenoaks and the North Downs. An electric oven, double sink and a 4 burner gas hob are all integrated. The cosy living room which also boasts fantastic views over Sevenoaks is fitted with carpets and features dado rails and an attractive period fireplace with Victorian brass inset providing a lovely focal point to the room. There are two double bedrooms both with built in wardrobe space and far reaching views out to Knole Park. The bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising panelled bath with overhead shower attachment, vinyl flooring and a vanity unit with integrated wash basin. There are numerous cupboards throughout, together with a large loft space which is for the sole use of this apartment offering plentiful storage space.
The apartment is deceptively spacious and the hipped ceilings are less imposing than it appears due to the overall height of the ridgeline. An internal viewing is therefore highly recommended.
The apartment is approached across a gravel driveway which leads to a parking area at the front of the building. Flat 5 has a designated parking space and also benefits from an attractive detached garage, 19 ft long with windows to the side and rear. The garage has power, lighting and a water supply and could easily be converted into a studio or home office (subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents).
To the rear of the building are attractive communal grounds featuring a large area of lawn interspersed with trees and a wide variety of shrubs and flowers. There is plenty of space for children to play and to entertain friends in the sunshine.
The property is conveniently located in the centre of Sevenoaks Town, 0.4 of a mile from Sevenoaks High Street. The wide choice of social and recreational activities include the Stag Theatre and cinema, vine cricket ground, leisure centre with swimming pool and fitness suite and a fine selection of shops, bars and restaurants are all on the doorstep. Hollybush Recreation Ground, which includes tennis courts, bowls, astro turf pitch, a café and a children's playground is just around the corner and the 1,000 acres of Knole Park is also a short walk away.
Sevenoaks mainline station (fast rail services to London Bridge, Waterloo East, Charing Cross and Cannon Street) is approximately 0.7 miles distant and access to the M25 (junction 5) can be found at the Chevening interchange about 2.3 miles distant. Schooling is excellent with many highly regarded primary, private and grammar schools within walking distance including Lady Boswells, Sevenoaks Primary and St Johns Primary Schools, Trinity School, Weald of Kent Grammar Annexe, Walthamstow Hall and Sevenoaks School.
Further places of interest within the local area include Chartwell (Winston Churchills former home), Ightham Mote, Hever Castle, Emmetts Garden, Leeds Castle, Penshurst Place, Old Soar Manor, Lullingstone Roman Villa and Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve.
