Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1926, Woodend is a fine example of ‘Arts & Crafts’ architecture, a substantial property occupying a large plot of 0.73 acres behind a 170ft wide frontage and sweeping ‘in-and-out’ driveway.
Woodend forms part of a prestigious row of properties and is every inch a property of class and opulence; add this to the picturesque setting and one can quickly appreciate why the owner fell for its position alone.
A 33ft reception hall with original panelling and beautiful stained glass light wells gives the first hint and indication of the kind of lifestyle you may come to expect with this truly stunning residence.
There are two principal reception rooms, elegant in both size and presence with a continuation of the original herringbone parquet flooring. The formal dining room overlooks the secluded rear garden and then leads onto a gentlemen’s room. Traditionally a room for the gentlemen to retire to after dinner, this room features an attractive bow window and would make an ideal study.
The kitchen is now the focal point of modern day living and the large open-plan kitchen and dining area here is no exception, an extremely sociable area and the definite hub of the home.
Two large rooms on the ground floor serve equally well as bedrooms as they do a family room, home office or games room, and provide a stunning outlook across the front gardens. A bathroom, laundry room and a utility room then complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor then presents three further bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. Most notably the impressive dual-aspect master suite with an outstanding vista across manicured gardens and rolling countryside beyond. The extensive roof space offers excellent potential for conversion (subject to necessary consents being obtained) and is easily accessed via a bedroom.
Externally, Woodend enjoys landscaped gardens which are predominately to the front of the property whilst a smaller secluded garden can be found to the rear, mainly laid to lawn with raised flower bed borders and a large patio area; ideal for dining al-fresco.
A detached double garage with additional storage rooms is adjacent to the principal property and offers even further potential for conversion; perhaps as annexe accommodation, a gymnasium or a separate studio for those who work from home?
Woodend is a truly unique family home situated within a location that can only be envied. Take advantage of this exceedingly rare opportunity and call the exclusive sole agents, Kent Estate Agencies on 01227 367441 for further information.
