Full description

A superb detached bungalow located in the highly sought village of Crockenhill, with its local amenities and convenient Motorway links, neighbouring Swanley town centre offers a wider array of shopping and social facilities, including mainline rail links to London Victoria in approx. 30 minutes. The generously proportioned accommodation comprises sitting room, dining room/ bedroom 3, kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, en suite and family bathroom. Externally the property benefits from a block paved driveway leading to a single garage which provides off road parking for several vehicles, whilst to the rear is a real hidden treasure in the form of a private garden with well stocked shrubs and flowers as well as a greenhouse and second patio area. The property still offers the potential for expansion (subject to necessary planning being obtained) and an internal viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the size and quality of this beautiful bungalow.

History Of Crockenhill - Crockenhill's earliest documented history starts in 1388, when the village, or hamlet as it was then, was known as Crockern-Held, which translates as "the hill where stands a pottery kiln". This bore fact to the heavy clay soil, sand and woodland that provided the resources to make, in this case, tiles for the surrounding areas, hence current names, like Tylers Green Road and Tilecroft. In Henry VIII's time thousands of tiles were supplied for the huge kiln at Dartford which was to smelt 'gold' found by Frobisher in Canada - the whole enterprise collapsing when the ore was found to be 'fool's gold'.

In the 15th century a large tract of Crockenhill was given to the nuns at Dartford Priory, who held it until the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII. After holding it for a few years, in 1540 the King gave Crockenhill to one of his favoured courtiers, Sir Percyval Hart of Lullingstone, and it remained part of the vast Lullingstone estate into the 1930s, when the estate was broken up.
By the mid 19th century, market gardening was booming, especially strawberries which grew well on recently grubbed-up woodland. London was readily accessible by road and rail, and with the benevolent rent policy of the Hart Dyke family, the most enterprising smallholders gradually became wealthy farmers.
Today Crockenhill continues to be a thriving community with a good social mix of well-established families and new ones. Most employment is now found away from the village, but its sense of identity remains strong and Crockenhill fiercely defends its status whenever it feels a threat.
