Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to have once been a 16th Century Inn, Gwen's Cottage is a delightful semi-detached Grade II Listed period home in a popular village location close to the market town of Sevenoaks.

Now in need of some modernisation, the cottage is constructed of brick with wooden windows under a slate tiled roof and has been in the same ownership for almost 30 years.

Of particular note is the sitting room which has a range of exposed structural timbers and a fine inglenook fireplace with timber bressumer beam and a gas fire.

The rest of the property maintains many period features including an old bread oven in the dining room and exposed beams.

There is a useful single garage with a study above which could possibly be turned into a third bedroom subject to planning permission.

To the rear of the kitchen is a conservatory which we are informed was added by the owner in 1998.

Gwen's Cottage is in the centre of Kemsing village which benefits from good local facilities including nursery/preschool, primary school, church, pub, doctor's surgery, local shops with cashpoint, post office, recreational fields and tennis/squash club.

Both Otford and Kemsing stations are within easy reach and provide regular services to London Victoria, from Otford taking approximately 40 minutes. There is also a direct service to Ashford International.

Nearby Otford village benefits from a range of good local facilities in addition to a church, many speciality shops and public houses. There is also a good state primary school as well as St Michael's and Russell House Preparatory schools.

Sevenoaks town is close by and offers an excellent range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities together with main line station serving Cannon Street/Charing Cross in about 30/35 minutes.

To the rear of the property is a beautifully kept south-facing cottage garden which is mainly laid to lawn but has some stunning borders with a pond, greenhouse and sun terrace.
