Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This two bedroom ground floor apartment forms part of the stunning Goddington Manor House and set amongst private grounds between Orpington and Chelsfield.
The property benefits from its own private garden accessed directly from the kitchen area, greatly adding to the appeal. A private driveway off of Court Road (opposite the end of Park Avenue) leads you through a densely wooded area to remote wrought iron gates with a secure entry system. As you continue, this imposing building with its Tudor style elevations comes into view and a sweeping drive around a green leads to the parking area.
You enter the main house through a grand entrance hall and immediately feel as if you have stepped back in time to a bygone era. Oak panelled walls and period features are in abundance. Once inside the apartment you are immediately struck by the period fireplace and tall ceilings that provide a great sense of light and space. These blend well with the owners contemporary styling of the open plan living/dining room and kitchen area.
There are two bedrooms - both doubles and a stylish family bathroom. The private garden provides a great space to enjoy the outside, hold a BBQ and for children to play safely.
The property comes with gas central heating and a long lease with over 190 years remaining. Situated on the edge of the leafy park sharing the same name, history dictates that Goddington was once a small manor in the parish of Chelsfield, first recorded in the 13th century as the property of Simon de Godyngton.
Goddington House was built in 1893 for James Harris, whose ancestors were lords of the manor of Orpington from the late Middle Ages.
The house was divided into 13 flats in the 1930s and was acquired in 1982 by the Methodist Ministers’ Housing Society for use as a retirement home. The society added more flats, modernised others for sale on the open market and changed the house’s name to Goddington Manor.
The town of Orpington lies just three quarters of a mile away and there are stations at Chelsfield (0.9 miles) and Orpington (1.1miles).
