Property description: In a secluded location close to The Vine and a third of a mile from Sevenoaks High Street, an attractive, detached house of character, set within colourful, well-established gardens. Probably dating from the early decades of the twentieth century, the house has attractive exterior elevations of white painted render and tile hanging, under a tall pitched tiled roof with multi-pane windows. Coming to the market for the first time since 1987, this charming property has been very well maintained by the present owners and offers accommodation in the main house extending to 2,840 square feet with a further 1,271 in the cottage. During their period of ownership, the vendors have upgraded and extended the house, ensuring a sympathetic restoration whilst at the same time retaining the original character of the architecture. Ceilings are of good height and have simple elegant coving and room sizes generous. Leading off from the bright reception hall are gracious reception rooms including the marvellous drawing room, which has a dual aspect with tall French doors opening on to the wide terracing and a stone fire surround, and the dining room again with French doors out to the rear garden. The kitchenbreakfast room is comprehensively furnished with a range of wall and base units by Chartwell including integrated appliances and a gas hob. From the kitchen, a door opens through to the fine conservatory, which has a barsecond kitchen area and a tiled floor.
An elegant, easy rising staircase leads to the spacious first floor landing, where there is access to a boarded loft. The principal bedroom suite consists of a large bedroom area with views of the rear garden with a run of fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathroom with separate shower cabinet. There are four further bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes, supported by two bathrooms - one en-suite.

Renowned for its local history and beautiful open spaces such as Knole Park and Sevenoaks Common, the area is surrounded by glorious countryside and is yet under thirty minutes by train from the West End and City of London. The town itself has a marvellous selection of nationally known stores and supermarkets, interspersed with boutiques, specialist stores, bars, cafes and restaurants. Schooling is excellent at both primary and secondary levels and includes sought-after grammar schools, primaries and junior schools such as Lady Boswells, St Thomas-, Riverhead and Amherst, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge public schools, Walthamstow Hall and prep schools such New Beacon, Granville School, Solefields and Sevenoaks Prep. There are many sporting venues with local golf at Nizels, Wildernesse and Knole, rugby, cricket, tennis and football clubs, sailing at Chipstead and a network of public foot and bridle paths.

The property is set back behind a stone wall with a protected tree line and approached via a private drive, over which a neighbouring property has right of access, with the drive sweeping around a central island to a parking and turning area in front of the covered parking, which is formed of a double and single garage. The rear gardens back south and are fabulously colourful with herbaceous borders stocked with a wide variety of perennials and bulbs for spring flowering. There are mature trees and hedging, rhododendrons and magnolias as well as swathes of well-tended lawn. A wide terrace traverses the rear of the property, ideal for outdoor entertaining, extending to one side and forming a courtyard garden where there is a raised, brick pond with waterfall feature.
The Cottage is detached from the main house and provides excellent ancillary accommodation arranged over two floors. At present, it is arranged to provide a hall, a sitting and a games room on the ground floor with a kitchen, bathroom and two further rooms on the upper level.
