Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Price Guide £1.9m -£1.995m.....With mixed use Stamp duty is reduced to circa 5%. A most impressive house situated near the centre of the village just behind the village pond. The original name of the property was 'Trowmer Lodge', then 'Tower House' and now 'Trowmers'. A foundation stone indicates that part of the house was built in 1711: However the greater part was built in 1777.
Originally constructed with three storeys and a tower, the top floor and the tower were removed in 1937. The 'Dome' of the tower has been skilfully incorporated into the present structure above the existing porch, thereby retaining part of the original feature.
There have been many notable residents at 'Trowmers', one being Sarah Wedgwood who purchased this property in 1868 and it was probably during this period that perhaps the greatest treasures of the house were created. On many of the ceilings and walls are delightful plaques sculptured in plaster by Wedgwood. These have been beautifully preserved and are reminiscent of 'Jasper' ware.
The accommodation includes seven bedrooms with two bathrooms and two shower rooms to the first floor and three well-proportioned reception rooms that include, a wood panelled dining room a large reception lounge and study.
A large yet to be converted attic has four rooms in addition to a good sized three room cellar.
There is a large double garage with electric gated drive. Outside landscaped gardens of approaching 2.9 acres can be found with a paddock and two stables.
Downe Primary School is under half a mile away, Chelsfield and Orpington mainline stations are under 4 miles way, with fast trains reaching London in 25 minutes from Orpington. Junction 4 of the M25 is under 6.5 miles, providing access to Gatwick and the Channel Tunnel.
