Description

Hampton Court House is a distinctive Grade II Listed property dating from the 18th Century with a later extension. The house provides well proportioned and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors together with a cellar. Features include attractive fireplaces, wooden flooring and casement windows, some of which have shutters. The mature gardens provide an attractive backdrop, and there are far reaching views to the front towards the Darenth Valley. Also of note is the benefit of off road parking for a number of cars and a double garage.

A porch leads to the dining hall which has a fireplace and an outlook over the front garden and toward the Darenth Valley. There are three further reception rooms including a drawing room with full height arched windows and doors to the side gardens, together with double doors opening to the charming
courtyard garden. The family room also has direct access to the garden and both these rooms have fireplaces. The sitting room is double aspect and all four reception rooms provide excellent entertainment areas.

The well proportioned triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with bespoke range of wall and floor cupboards with granite work surfaces, a dresser style unit and a matching central island. Appliances include a four oven Aga, a 5 ring gas hob, integrated microwave, dishwasher and fridge. This room is ideal for informal family living and has views to the front.

There is a rear hall with flagstone flooring and provides access to a cellar, utility room (with space for various white goods) and a separate cloakroom. There is also a door to the charming courtyard garden.

Located on the first floor is an impressive master suite comprising a spacious bedroom with far reaching views and a fireplace with duck nest grate, a dressing room with wardrobes and an en suite bathroom featuring a roll top bath.

There are four further double bedrooms all with attractive views over the garden.
