Property Description

Full description

Wonderful 3-bedroom family house positioned perfectly for Sevenoaks’ outstanding primary schools and excellent transport links, with views up to the North Downs.

On a quiet corner adjoining a cul-de-sac, this semi-detached family home is bright, professionally decorated and well-maintained. Three bedrooms (including a top-floor retreat for parents or teenager), two bathrooms (one ensuite), a spacious live-in kitchen, separate utility room and huge built-in cupboards. There are green views from all windows and two of the bedrooms enjoy fantastic views up to the North Downs. The good-sized garden (approximately 37’ x 62’) is quiet, fully-fenced and enjoys complete seclusion thanks to the mature beech hedges on both sides. The south-facing frontage is set back almost 30 feet from the road. There’s also a single garage, a 10’x8’shed and a children’s playhouse. The house, with gas central heating and new double-glazed windows, was modernized and extended in 2007 and has been very well-maintained and regularly decorated since.

51 Bullfinch Lane is for sale freehold chain-free and by informal tender, with the vendor inviting bids in excess of £475,000. Viewing is by appointment only on Friday 26th July (noon – 8pm) and Saturday 27th July (Noon – 4pm).
