Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rosecroft Cottage is a most delightful Victorian Grade II listed building dating back to the mid 1800s and set amongst three quarters of an acre of glorious landscaped gardens. Historical records suggest that it once formed part of the Cockmanning Farm Estate and has since been extended by previous owners from the 1930s.
The property currently consists of four bedrooms (with master en suite), kitchen/breakfast room, drawing room and study/dining room. You will also find a 23' x 14' cellar, utility area and cloakroom plus a first floor bathroom. Outside, a gated gravelled driveway leads to a detached garage and provides off-street parking for several vehicles. The mature gardens surround the property and include a summer house and many topiary trees and shrubs which provide a 'park like' setting. The property is situated within a mile of Orpington town centre and St Mary Cray Station (c.23 minutes by train to London).
Orpington is a thriving suburban town within the M25 and therefore ideally situated for access to the motorway network and the railway stations that can transport you into London in as little as 16 minutes. The town centre has a comprehensive range of shops and facilities including the Walnuts Centre and Odeon cinema. Sports facilities are also well catered for with the Walnuts Sports Centre, golf courses, football and rugby clubs all within the area. A little way out of town you will find larger shops at the Nugent Retail Park as well as the large DIY stores and big name retailers at the industrial estates near to the River Cray. Larger shopping centres at Bluewater and Bromley can also be found within 10 miles drive or bus ride. The Orpington district has lots of green areas to enjoy including Priory Gardens and Goddington Park and the rolling Kent countryside starts from the edge of town where you will find cosy country pubs in the surrounding villages. Many people are drawn to the area for the reputable schools that include 'Outstanding' rated primary's at Warren Road and Perry Hall Road plus the highly regarded Darrick Wood Secondary School. St Olaves Boys and Newstead Wood Girls Grammar Schools are also within the BR6 area.
