Description

High House is a charming Grade II listed late medieval Hall House with later additions, retaining a wealth of character features which include high ceilings, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and multi-pane windows. The property has been in the same occupancy for over 60 years and has been extended during this period, yet offers further scope to update if required. Of particular note are the wonderful established gardens, stocked with a variety of trees, plants and shrubs providing year round interest. There is also a swimming pool within the grounds, together with a garage and workshop. The house is well located within the popular village of Underriver, which is only four miles from Sevenoaks centre.

The attractive porch has a front door opening to the vestibule and entrance hall. Within the hall are stairs rising to the first floor, an under stairs cupboard and access to the cloakroom. There is also a second porch at the end of the hall, with a door to the front garden.

All the reception rooms are double aspect with lovely views over the gardens, and provide well-proportioned areas for both formal and informal entertaining. The drawing room is superbly proportioned with an attractive stone fireplace with brick inset and stone hearth. The dining room has a useful understairs coat cupboard and the sitting room benefits from double doors providing access to the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating a double sink. Appliances include an eye level double oven, Miele hob with extractor fan over, and there is space for a fridge freezer and dishwasher. The adjoining utility room also has a sink, storage cupboards and space for appliances, together with direct access to the south facing courtyard. From the kitchen, there is access to a back porch, wine store, boot room with water softener, and door to outside.

From the main hall an oak staircase rises to the first floor landing which has a number of fitted cupboards and an outlook over the southerly courtyard.

The double aspect master bedroom has the most wonderful views to the front, over the garden and countryside beyond. There are fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en suite bathroom.

There are three further double bedrooms, all with fitted cupboards and delightful views over the gardens. One of these rooms benefits from a vanity unit and access to a secondary staircase.

The family bathroom is well-appointed and has a connecting door to one of the bedrooms.

The house is approached over a tarmacadam drive which provides parking for a number of cars and leads to the tandem garage which has a workshop/garden store to one end, together with an external log store and an adjacent greenhouse.

The superb gardens are well maintained with generous areas of lawn flanked by deep herbaceous beds and shrub borders. A number of flowering cherry trees line the drive, and there is an orchard area to one side of the main lawn under planted by daffodils. The swimming pool area is paved and has a high brick wall to one side and an attractive summerhouse. There is a beautiful formal garden stocked with white flowering plants and enclosed by an established hedge. To the south is a paved courtyard area with a well and access to the boiler room and gardener’s W.C. The garden contains an excellent variety of plants including roses, rhododendrons, espaliered magnolia and apple trees, quince, star magnolia and hydrangeas. In total the area amounts to about 0.8 of an acre and provides a high degree of privacy.
