It is a beautiful quintessential country cottage approached off a quiet lane with farmland on either side. A block paved parking area fronts neat lawns framed by mature trees and hedging with a pretty stream meandering up the side of the property. A stepping stone pathway winds up to a smart front door while a rustic wooden bridge spanning the stream at the side enables access to the rear garden.
You enter into a light porch with room for coats and shoes which leads you through an internal door and into the hallway.
To the right of the entrance hallway is a bright double aspect living room with French doors opening directly onto the side garden terrace which enjoys open farmland views beyond. It is a cosy, tranquil room perfect for relaxing in whilst warming yourself in front of the wood burning stove.
On the opposite side of the hallway the dining room is brimming with character with its wooden floor, exposed brick chimney breast and slate hearth. It is deceptively spacious with plenty of room for a dining table and chairs and is conveniently placed next to the kitchen.
The kitchen/breakfast room is pretty and welcoming with its honey coloured units and homely AGA providing a balance between family living and practicality. The cooking area which is cleverly separated from the dining area by a breakfast bar is well fitted with plenty of units and work surfaces. A butler sink is thoughtfully placed under the window enabling you to keep a watchful eye over the children as they play in the garden as you wash up. There is an integrated dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer while glass wall blocks at the far end add interest to the dining space which is flooded with light from the French doors leading out to the garden.
At the far end of the kitchen is a separate and spacious utility room which houses a chic guest cloakroom. A butler sink and space and plumbing for utility machines and additional fridge/freezer space.
The central staircase leads you up to a half landing with double bedrooms on either side. The double aspect master bedroom with a wall of fitted wardrobes enjoys restful views across the front lawn and the quiet lane beyond. There are three further quiet bedrooms with open farmland views. A luxurious modern family bathroom complete with double walk in shower cubicle, panel enclosed bath and heated towel rail completes the first floor.
The house is secluded on its quiet country lane and sheltered by a lush green backdrop of front and rear gardens with open farmland stretching beyond it as far as the eye can see. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty you are spoilt by the abundance of country lanes, woodland walks and stunning farmland that makes you feel at one with nature.
However, you have the best of both worlds with Sevenoaks` excellent shopping facilities just over 5 miles away and Sevenoaks Railway Station offering a fast service into mainline London stations in just over half an hour. The nearby A21 provides direct access to Tunbridge Wells and the M25 offering a quick route to Central London.
There are numerous excellent schools in the area including Sevenoaks Prep School, The New Beacon Prep school, The Granville Prep school, Solefield Prep school, Walthamstow Hall, Sevenoaks School, Hilden Grange Prep School, Schools at Somerhill and Tonbridge School as well as the Grammar schools in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells and a selection of very good local primary schools.
