IntroductionA rare opportunity to purchase a stunning, deceptively spacious Grade II Listed house, which maintains several period features blending sympathetically with the comforts of modern living, located in a popular village on the outskirts of Sevenoaks.
DescriptionThis beautiful, Grade II Listed townhouse offers deceptively spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. The entrance door leads into the hall with staircase rising to the first floor and doors leading to the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is to the front with two sash windows with original working shutters and attractive feature fireplace. The dining room has door to side leading out to the courtyard, feature fireplace with shelved storage cupboards in alcove. Beneath the carpet there is a trap door leading down to a cellar with original brick block flooring. Off the dining room there is a walk in pantry and door leading to the kitchen. This room is dual aspect with windows to rear and side and door leading out to the courtyard. There are work surfaces with a range of cupboards and drawers beneath and wall mounted units above, butler sink, wall mounted display units and space for oven, washing machine, fridge and integrated dishwasher.
To the first floor, a staircase rises to the second floor and there are a range of storage cupboards, bookshelves and doors leading to the principal bedrooms. Bedroom one has an attractive feature fireplace and a range of fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom is to the rear and is dual aspect and, once again, has an attractive fireplace. The bathroom has multipaned sash window to side, fireplace and suite comprising original Victorian roll top bath, wash hand basin and WC. To the second floor there is an office/snug which opens through to the third bedroom which has a built in storage cupboard.
Outside, there is a stable block with planning permission to convert into a self contained annexe, which currently consists of a stable with cobbled floor, hay loft above and tack room. Between the stable block and the house there are double gates providing access to a cobbled driveway for off road parking and leading to a courtyard area with paved flagstones, lawned area and flower beds, gardeners WC and brick built potting shed. A gravel path stocked with herbaceous borders leads down to the majority of the garden which is walled to two sides with flower borders, a variety of fruit trees and is mainly laid to lawn with separate vegetable patch. Internal viewing is highly recommended as there is no onward chain.
From Sevenoaks station proceed into Riverhead. At the first mini roundabout turn left and at the traffic lights, by the school, turn right into Witches Lane. At the crossroads turn right into Chipstead Lane and the property will be found towards the bottom on the left.
