Description - Every now and again a property comes onto the market which can only be described as 'special'. In our opinion Goodbury House definitely falls into that category. As Sole Agents we are delighted to present this stylish family house in an idyllic rural location surrounded by open countryside and far reaching views from every aspect yet less than 2 miles away from the popular village of Otford. Goodbury House is approached via a gated driveway and immediately the combination of natural brick and aged oak give the property a warm and inviting feel which extends throughout the house. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with a comfortable Sitting Room, Dining Room Kitchen and Utility Room on the Ground Floor. On the first floor the Master Bedroom with En Suite benefits from a roof top balcony/terrace overlooking the gardens. There are 3 further Bedroom including a Family Bathroom. There is so much more to enjoy outside. Set in the immaculate grounds not only is there a Self Contained Annexe above the Double Garage but for those working from home a 2 Room Outdoor Studio with bi fold doors to front and side offering which could be used as an office, gym or any number of uses. Subject to planning the building may well be converted to a small bungalow for an elderly relative. An attractive Summerhouse sits within the grounds and at the far end of the garden is a well maintained vegetable garden. It is only by internal viewing that one can appreciate the attention to detail that has gone into transforming Goodbury House into a superior and impressive family home.
