- End of Terrace
- On Road Parking
A delightful 3 bedroom Grade II listed flint cottage in the heart of the village that boasts stunning period features tied seamlessly with contemporary elements.
The entrance door opens into a welcoming hallway with stairs leading to the first floor and an opening to the right through to the downstairs accommodation. This first door leads through to the bespoke kitchen by Great British Kitchens with beautifully hand-crafted painted solid wood units finished off with glass displays, topped with solid granite worktops and, at its heart, a gorgeous Rayburn stove in a exposed brick surround. The living and dining accommodation is adjacent to the kitchen through the hall with an exposed brick chimney housing a working open fireplace taking centre stage. Here there is ample room for both living and dining with a pretty stable door leading out onto the garden.
To the first floor the staircase opens out into a landing that provides access to three bedrooms. The master and second are both generously sized double rooms and all three boast fully built-in wardrobes by Sharps encompassing some cleaver stage solutions. The contemporary Villeroy & Boch bathroom is also accessed via the landing and was recently purchased by the current owners from Potts featuring an Aqualisa power shower.
The rear garden welcomes you with a walled patio area with a water feature, with steps to a further patio leading to a shed and one of the two brick built outbuildings. The first of which is accessed from the walled patio and has its own separate fuse board providing power for this building as well as to the other outbuildings, there is also a water supply here for additional white goods as well as an outside tap. This building combined with the others provides ample space for a workshop and storage.
The property is located in the heart of Halstead within easy walking distance of the local primary school. The village, which is set within the North Downs, has its own post office & shop, the Rose & Crown public house, which are also within easy reach of the property. The area generally is renowned for its excellent educational and recreational facilities and pleasant rural walks are close at hand. There is easy access to junction 4 of the M25 which provides access to Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, Channel Tunnel Terminals, Ebbsfleet International, South Coast and the major motorway networks. Knockholt railway station (services to London Bridge, Charing Cross and Sevenoaks) is approximately 1.4 miles away. The main towns of Orpington and Sevenoaks are about 4 and 6 miles distant respectively.
From Sevenoaks, proceed in a northerly
direction on the A224 out through Riverhead and Dunton Green. Continue out of the village passing the Rose & Crown restaurant on the right hand side and upon reaching the roundabout, take the third exit and proceed up Polhill. At the brow of the hill turn left into Otford Lane and continue along for a short distance. At the crossroads in the centre of the village, proceed straight over and the property will be found on the left hand side.
