Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Eyot House is a hidden gem in the centre of the sought after village of Shoreham, encircled by its own stream, a private, detached, 3916 sq ft family home constructed in 1960 and set amidst delightful gardens with an adjoining meadow along with almost three acres of secluded level gardens and park like grounds.
Internally, this light and spacious house is arranged over two floors and offers flexible accommodation with a large amount of storage space, wooden floors, ceramic tiled flooring to the conservatory, kitchen, reception hall and cloakrooms. There are three reception rooms together with a large conservatory providing several ideal areas for entertaining. The triple aspect drawing room features an open fireplace and has French doors which lead onto the terrace and gardens beyond. The beautiful new kitchen/breakfast room with under floor heating is equipped with a good range of solid wood units with gleaming granite work surfaces over. Appliances comprise Rangemaster Classic electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher, microwave and there is space for a fridge and fridge/freezer. The separate utility room has a sink with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and stores the oil fired boiler (two year’s old and annually serviced). Situated on the first floor are six bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobe cupboards), including a master suite which enjoys en suite bath facilities. There is also a separate family bathroom. The majority of rooms enjoy a delightful outlook over the gardens and grounds.

The well established gardens surrounding Eyot House comprise paved terracing and level lawns edged with a mixture of planted borders and a variety of mature trees. The property enjoys river frontage and a stream flows through the garden with timber bridges over, giving access to the remainder of the land which comprises a lovely meadow stocked with an array of mature trees and plants. Also features a driveway and double garage with twin up/over doors.

Seldom do properties enjoy rural country living and retain the sense of community. With Eyot House's discrete position and proximity to the village centre it is an exceptional combination. Unusually for a village, Shoreham is free from an A road running through it which gives it a sense of peace and security whilst benefiting from quick access links at each end of the village to the M25. The plethora of activities that are enjoyed throughout the year by the local and surrounding community include the famous Duck Race, Heavy Horse Show, village fete, drama and historical societies together with the popular and well supported activities in the church. There are four good pubs serving excellent home cooked food and local beers together with a well-stocked village shop, and a railway station within walking distance of Eyot House with direct trains to London and Sevenoaks.
