Property overview

Introduction

A deceptively spacious modern detached family house that has been extensively renovated by the current owners, with open plan living accommodation a short walk from the centre of the popular village of Leigh.

Description


Built in the 1960s, the house has been extensively updated by its current owners, including wiring and fuse box, Worcester combi-boiler, flat roofs, repairs to the main roof, bathrooms and downstairs WC, kitchen, window repairs, gutters, fascias and soffits and extensive work to the garden. The front hall has Scandinavian style wood flooring that runs throughout the ground floor and a spacious under-stairs cupboard. Off the hallway there is a downstairs WC, decorated with pretty Winchester tiles and containing a large coat cupboard. The impressive recently installed kitchen has Neff applicances, including two double ovens, microwave, induction hob, pop up extractor fan, warming drawer, integrated dishwasher and full height fridge. The kitchen has a significant amount of storage, with pull-out larder cupboards, rotary corner storage, deep pan drawers and glazed dresser units. The dining area is big enough for a table to seat 16. The kitchen gives views of the delightful folly style gatehouse of Hall Place.The dining area leads to the sunny south facing sitting room which has sliding doors leading onto the patio and a Yeoman wood burning stove. The light filled triple aspect playroom has sliding doors into the garden and could easily be fitted with doors to divide the open plan ground floor. A utility/boot room completes the ground floor, with a Neff integrated freezer, space for a washing machine and sink.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms (two double, three good sized singles) all enjoying pretty views over fields. Three bedrooms have built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has a suite comprising panelled bath with a hand shower, toilet, basin and deep storage cupboard. There is a separate shower room with a powerful rainfall shower and handset, plus toilet and basin. Both rooms are floored with hard-wearing Karndean vinyl flooring.

Outside there is a single garage that extends from the front to the back of the house and gives access to the garden. The adjoining garage belongs to the neighbour.

The generous gardens are a particular feature. There are beds filled with David Austen roses, a vegetable plot, large shed, established asparagus bed, sunny greenhouse and a fruit cage with cherry trees, strawberries, raspberries and currants. There are lots of fruit trees including eating and cooking apples, pears and a very special quince tree - the quince jelly is a real delicacy. The lawn is not overlooked and there is plenty of room for football matches, a Wendy House and a giant trampoline. There are beautiful walks from the front and the back of the property. Children have a good deal of freedom to roam the countryside away from traffic. Barn owls make a regular journey over the garden at dusk to hunt in the field behind the house.

This is a sunny, spacious and well maintained 1960s house; as such it represents excellent value and is a rare find in this picturesque village.

Location

The house is situated a short walk from the beautiful village centre. Leigh has a friendly pub, a very useful shop and post office, a daily doctor's surgery, a hair dresser and an extremely popular school and pre-school. The classic English village green hosts football, cricket and stoolball teams. The community is very active, with frequent events such as a produce society show, Leigh Superstars (silly races for charity), History Society talks, sociable tennis club, toddler groups, a choir and a range of fitness classes. The two village halls host badminton, Pilates and parties. Children from the village attend grammar schools and comprehensives in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Many people choose to live in Leigh for its excellent commuting: Hildenborough station takes approximately 40 minutes to reach Charing Cross. There are 3 commuter bus services each morning and evening taking residents to the station. There is also a village train station which connects to Tonbridge and Redhill, and on to Gatwick and Victoria.

Directions

Leave Sevenoaks in a southerly direction and at the bottom of River Hill bear left towards Hildenborough. Take the second turning on the right into Watts Cross Road and at the end of this road, turn right onto Rings Hill which becomes Hildenborough Road. Follow the road into the village of Leigh passing the village green and primary school on the left and take the third turning on the left into Donkeyfield where the property will be found on the left hand side.
