This attractive period house with elevations of red brick was built in the early 1930s and is presented in good order. The entrance door opens into a porch area with space for storing coats and shoes. A further door leads into the cosy sitting room which boasts stripped wooden floors and a large window overlooking the front of the property. An open fireplace with painted brick surround provides a wonderful focal point to the room with fitted timber furniture either side. The same stripped wooden floors continue into the dining room which is semi-open to the kitchen and offers a fantastic place to entertain. A large cupboard under the stairs provides handy storage space.
At the rear of the house overlooking the garden is the marvellous kitchen which has been updated by the current owners. There is a range of shaker style wall and base units with solid oak worktops with inset sink and stylish chamfered tiled splashback. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, electric oven, extractor hood and 4 burner gas hob. A conservatory utility space next to the kitchen has plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and offers further storage space and access into the back garden.
Upstairs the first floor landing leads to two bedrooms and the family bathroom. The family bathroom is particularly spacious and has been finished in a period style with neutral mosaic tiling and a white suite. There is a wonderful roll top bath with shower over and glass screen, pedestal basin, low level W.C. and a feature cast iron fireplace. The master bedroom is located in the converted loft space which has its own ensuite cloakroom and eaves storage space. There are delightful views over the roof tops and to the Sevenoaks Downs beyond.
The property benefits from double glazed windows and mains gas central heating with a modern Worcester Bosch combi boiler.
The house is approached across a block paved drive which provides off-road parking for one small vehicle with a gated pathway down the side of the house giving access to the back garden. There is some attractive planting to the front of the property and white picket fences on the boundary.
To the rear, there is a beautiful raised stone patio bordered with granite setts and a fantastic west facing private garden (approximately 58 ft long). It offers plenty of space for children to play or for you to relax and enjoy the afternoon sunshine. There are well stocked borders with a wide range of flowering and herbaceous shrubs and plants together with a good sized area of lawn. Some of the panelled fencing has been recently replaced and at the back of the garden is a timber shed providing outside storage space.
The property is located in the highly desirable 'Hollybush' area of Sevenoaks Town within walking distance of both the High Street and Sevenoaks mainline station. Despite being in the centre of Town, Hollybush is often described as having a village feel and boasts its own collection of boutique shops, cafes and a fantastic park, which includes tennis courts, bowls, astro turf pitch, a café and a children's playground. Knole Park is also on the doorstep with 1000 acres of dear parkland and the stunning Knole House to explore.
Sevenoaks High Street is just 0.7 miles away and has a number of pubs, restaurants and shops as well as the Stag Theatre and cinema, vine cricket ground and Sevenoaks leisure centre with swimming pool and fitness suite.
Sevenoaks mainline station (fast rail services to London Bridge, Waterloo East, Charing Cross and Cannon Street) is approximately 0.9 miles distant and access to the M25 (junction 5) can be found at the Chevening interchange about 2.5 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, Penshurst Place, Lullingstone Roman Villa and Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve.
