This delightful Victorian Cottage was built in 1900 and has been renovated throughout by the current owners. It offers a wonderful mix of character charm and contemporary living with a light and airy feel. There are engineered-wood floors throughout the two formal reception rooms together with original bespoke carpentry. Wonderful feature fireplaces can be found all through the property including a beautiful antique stove in the dining room. The downstairs bathroom has a white suite with a shower above the bath and is neutrally finished with a mixture of white and grey tiles. The kitchen, situated at the rear of the property, looks out over the garden and has been tastefully designed with white gloss cupboards, contemporary steel handles and laminate worktops. There is plenty of cupboard space and a door that provides access to the garden.
Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms which both benefit from new carpets and pleasant views. There is double glazing throughout the property and a combi boiler installed.
To the rear of the property is a charming courtyard garden which is West facing and provides a lovely place to catch the afternoon sun or enjoy some al fresco entertaining. There is bed of flowering and herbaceous shrubs and plants which offers a splash of colour with the majority of the garden paved and requiring little maintenance.
There is no direct off road parking with the property but parking permits are available for the recreation ground car park which is a 2 minute walk away.
A major attraction is the exceptional position, set back in a quiet lane just off the high street in the heart of Otford Village where everything is within walking distance. There are a variety of small independent shops, historic houses, several pubs and a restaurant, a 16th century church, a library, the village primary school and nursery, a recreation ground and playground for small children as well as two halls which host events and club meetings. There is an excellent range of educational facilities in both the state and private sectors including Otford village primary school as well as St. Michael's and Russell House Preparatory schools. At the centre of the village is a very picturesque spring-filled pond which is the location of the smallest listed building in England - a duck house. The attractive village green is surrounded by historic buildings including Chantry Cottage and St Bartholomew's Church.
Otford's mainline railway station is also within walking distance (approx. 0.5 miles) with frequent services to Victoria, St Pancras International, Ashford International and Sevenoaks.
The nearest town is Sevenoaks, which is about 3 miles away, where one can find an excellent range of shops, restaurants and Sevenoaks mainline station (fast rail services to London Bridge, Waterloo East, London Charing Cross & Cannon Street).
