This charming property was built in the 1950s and offers plenty of well-proportioned accommodation and a large garden in the favoured south side of Sevenoaks. An enclosed glass porch leads to the front door which opens into the hallway with stairs to the first floor on the left hand side. On the right is the wonderful living/dining room which has been knocked through to create a large reception space, ideal for entertaining and modern living. The dining area has a large bay window overlooking the front of the property and the lounge benefits from a working fireplace with brick surround and sliding doors overlooking the truly fantastic garden. The kitchen, which is 15 ft long is fitted with a range of shaker style wall and base units with stainless steel handles, worktop over and vinyl flooring. There is a huge amount of cupboard space and an integrated electric over and 5 burner gas hob. A lean-to off the kitchen provides a large utility space and leads to the downstairs WC, with a door out to the back garden.
Upstairs, the first floor landing leads to three bedrooms and a shower room. All three bedrooms are a good size and boast fitted cupboards and there are nice views at the rear looking out towards Knole Park. The shower room has been recently renovated with stylish grey tiling to the floor and walls and includes a large walk-in shower, low level WC, pedestal wash basin and trendy contrast colour towel rail. A loft hatch from the landing provides access (via a pull-down wooden ladder) to a spacious loft room which has a skylight window, carpeted flooring, a plumbed-in radiator and plenty of eaves storage.
The property benefits from double glazed windows and mains gas central heating fuelled by a modern Worcester Bosch boiler. There are also solar panels located on the roof which provide a clean and renewable source of energy, offering real costs savings on the electricity bills. For those wanting to add further space and value to this wonderful home there is plenty of extension potential to the rear (subject to planning consent), with the neighbouring property having recently added a double storey extension
There is a pretty front garden mainly laid to lawn with a variety of plants providing colour and a picket fence to the front boundary. A gated pathway leads to the entrance door and to the left hand side is a side gate which provides access to the back garden through the lean-to.
The rear garden is south east facing and measures approximately 90 feet in length. There is a wide variety of flowering plants and shrubs together with a good size area of lawn offering plenty of space for children to play. A large paved stone terrace to the immediate rear of the property provides a generous spot for al fresco entertaining and incorporates a brick built barbeque. A matching stone pathway winds down the garden towards the garden office, which has power, light and double glazing and makes an ideal home office or studio for those who work from home.
Off-road parking is located at the back of the garden, accessed from Lea Road and could easily be expanded to accommodate several vehicles if required.
