Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Fine & Country are delighted to present this elegant double fronted Grade II Listed residence, representing a fine example of Queen Anne architecture. Occupying an enviable position within a plot of almost half an acre in the heart of the charming village of Teston, Becketts Croft sits proudly, screened from the road behind a Victorian brick built wall and a regal row of mature lime trees. The property is reached by means of a five bar wooden gate, opening to a driveway dressed in fine shingle.

Step Inside

The home exudes strong evidence of its past with many original and characterful features remaining intact. A staircase rising from the entrance hall bisects the house and exhibits a wonderfully rich oak handrail and balustrade.Timber framed case and sash windows, some with original wooden shutters, flood well proportioned rooms with light, whilst high ceilings add to an ultimate sense of space. Impressive marble fireplaces feature within both the substantial dining room and the sitting room. The latter boasts dual aspect views and French doors opening to one of two large gardens. An additional reception room to the rear of the house offers a beautiful view of the rear garden, whilst a log burning stove provides a lovely focal point. A large cellar accessed from this room affords useful storage. The kitchen offers a comprehensive range of eye level, drawer and base units, in conjunction with dual aspect views and direct access onto a superb sandstone patio. A dedicated utility room and downstairs cloakroom provide practicality and convenience.

The first floor is currently configured with four double bedrooms, including an impressive dual aspect master bedroom with large inbuilt wardrobes and luxurious en suite bath/shower room. The remaining three bedrooms on this level are served by a generous family bath/shower room. Two further double bedrooms (one currently used as an office) are located on the second floor, separated by a small landing.

Step Outside

Becketts Croft commands an enviable position within grounds approaching half an acre. To the rear of the residence, a large sandstone patio leads on to a large lawn interspersed with prolifically well stocked beds containing a mature range of shrubbery, herbaceous plants and mature specimen trees. An equally impressive garden to the side of the property can be reached by means of an arched hedge from the formal garden or by means of French doors from the sitting room. Predominantly laid to lawn, this area would be ideally suited to a childrens' play area. Both gardens afford privacy and a feeling of seclusion and compliment the home perfectly.

Garaging & Parking

A detached brick built double garage with power/light and an electronically operated door offers plenty of additional storage space including its own loft and bolsters the imposing look of the property well, whilst a driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles.

Location

Charming Teston is situated on the fringes of Wateringbury village, enjoying a semi-rural setting, yet having the benefits of nearby West Malling and Maidstone, offering a wide range of amenities and grammar schools. Larger accessible towns include Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, where there are highly regarded private schools, superb restaurants, wine bars and leisure facilities. Commuter links are also excellent with the M20 and M2 motorway networks allowing easy access to Bluewater and Lakeside shopping centres and a choice of mainline railway stations are only a short distance away providing direct links to London and the coast.
