This attractive period house with elevations of red and yellow brick was built in 1912 and is presented in good order. There are many original features that have been retained including sash windows fitted with bespoke internal timber shutters, picture rails, 4 panel doors and wonderful feature fireplaces.
The front door leads into an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor straight ahead. To the left there is a cosy sitting room with carpeted floors and a beautiful original fireplace offering a lovely focal point to the room. A separate dining room that overlooks the garden offers a formal place to entertain with fitted cupboards under the stairs providing handy storage space.
The kitchen, situated at the rear of the property has been designed with quarry tiled floors, timber cupboards with stainless steel handles and contrast coloured tiles to the walls. There is plenty of cupboard space and a door that provides access to the garden. Integrated appliances include an electric oven, extractor hood and a 4 burner gas hob, ideal for those with a flair for cooking.
Upstairs the first floor landing leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom boasts fitted wardrobes and views out over the garden. The bathroom has been tastefully updated by the current owners with a beautiful combination of mosaic tiles and features a white suite with a shower above the bath and vanity unit with integrated sink.
The house offers plenty of space but for those who wish to add value and expand the living accommodation further there is an abundance of extension potential. The corner plot offers space out to the rear and to the side and there is also a large loft which could be converted to add a further bedroom and en-suite (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).
The house is approached across a paved driveway which provides off-road parking for at least 2 vehicles with a pathway down the side of the house giving access to the back garden. There is some attractive planting to the front of the property including a flowering Clematis over the frontage. To the rear there is a beautiful walled garden, which is west facing and larger than the majority of gardens in Prospect Road. There is a patio area to the immediate rear of the house under a pergola which offers a nice place for some al fresco entertaining. The garden has been landscaped with a mixture of stone and bricked paved paths winding between ornamental box hedging, interspersed with a wide range of flowering and herbaceous shrubs and plants. There are a number of specimen trees and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the afternoon sunshine and included in the sale is a timber summer house and greenhouse.
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 0.8 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.
