A charming period property, beautifully presented throughout, located in the centre of Seal village close to the local shops, recreation ground and village school.
This delightful period home has been extended and renovated throughout by the current owners. It offers a wonderful mix of character charm and contemporary living with high ceilings and a light and airy feel.
The downstairs living space has been opened out to create a large kitchen/dining/living area that has real wow factor. This fantastic modern space has recessed ceiling lights, picture rails and engineered oak floors. The working open fireplace is simply beautiful and provides a lovely focal point to the living area with a fitted cupboard and shelves either side. The kitchen, looks out over the rear garden and has been tastefully designed with contemporary white handle-less cupboards, a solid oak worktop and stylish grey chamfered tiles. Appliances have all been integrated including a microwave, dishwasher and gas hob. The original doors have been retained throughout and stripped back to add further character. The downstairs bathroom has been exquisitely finished with a white suite and stylish contrast tiling. There is a rainfall power shower fitted above the bath and a sleek floating vanity unit.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms to the 1st floor both with lovely ornate fireplaces. The master bedroom is on the 2nd floor within the loft space and benefits from fitted cupboards and far reaching views out to the North Downs. The refurbishment which was completed in 2015 included a full rewire and new heating system fuelled by a gas combi boiler.
The entrance to the property is located to the rear of the house and is accessed via a passage way off Zion Street. A lovely winding brick path leads from the entrance gate through the garden to the terrace and the main door of the house.
The rear garden has been nicely landscaped with a raised deck providing a wonderful place for some al fresco entertaining. It is fully enclosed and feels very private despite being in the heart of the village. There is an area of lawn together with a small bed of flowering plants and lovely tree that provides screening. To the front of the property is an enclosed garden covered with gravel for low maintenance. On-street parking is available on a 'first come, first served' basis on Zion Street and neighbouring roads.
As the address suggests, the property is situated on the High Street in the centre of Seal village, which benefits from a primary school, library and an excellent range of local facilities including a very good general store and award-winning butcher (www.hwcoldbreath.co.uk), a popular kebab shop and a local car maintenance garage. There is also The Five Bells public house, Tandoori Nights Indian restaurant, an Italian cafe and a pet shop & pet hotel. Seal recreation ground is nearby, which has a Pavilion available for hire, a secure children's playground, football pitches and a wildlife area.
