Full description


Description - As Sole Agents we are delighted to present this substantial family house which comes onto the market for the very first time since being built in 1956. The house was built specifically for the builder himself and therefore was finished to a particularly high specification. The Old Walk remains one of the most sought after of locations in the village being so convenient for walking to the station, schools and village centre. On entering the property one is immediately struck by the quality of many of the original features, particularly the polished parquet floors in the Entrance Hall and Sitting/Dining Room. After almost sixty years they remain exquisite and a true feature of the house. In our opinion this property will appeal to a young family wishing to lay down roots in Otford and become involved with all the many activities on offer in this vibrant and popular village, of which there are many and for all ages. The property offers so much potential for extending subject to planning consent as there is adequate space to the rear and side for rearranging the current layout of the house making it more in tune with the requirements of a modern family. The garden also offers immense potential for redesigning with the rear section providing a perfect location for a summerhouse, office or gym. The garden is currently well screened providing seclusion and a safe play area for young children.
