Description The house is approached via a long tree-lined drive, over a bridge and past a lake on the right and leads you up this majestic home.
On entering the house through the picturesque porch, the first room you arrive at is the triple-aspect kitchen/breakfast room, which is currently simply appointed but fully functional, with the advantages of an oil-fired Aga and plenty of potential. Next is the impressive dining room which is packed with original features, including a handsome inglenook fireplace, priest hole and oak-panelling on the walls, as well as a beautiful bay window looking out to the garden. The Victorian-style drawing room has an eye-catching bay window, with stunning views and a beautiful fireplace with an inbuilt stove. There is a separate, double-aspect living room which would suit a more relaxed feel.
Heading up the striking oak staircase takes you to the first floor, with the large, triple-aspect master suite featuring two walk-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a corner Jacuzzi bath. Across the other side of the house is the second bedroom, which also benefits from an en suite. There are a further three double bedrooms, all with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. One also features two exquisite lead stained-glass windows. Also on this floor is the family bathroom, which has a bath.
Outside is a ground floor studio room, perfect for a home office or studio, and a separate boiler room. The extensive, well-established gardens extend over 1.3 acres to the north and south of the property and are principally laid to lawn with well-stocked beds and borders abound with roses, camellias and hydrangeas. At the front of the house is a well-maintained pond with aquatic planting. Beyond the rear lawn are a grassy meadow area, housing the tennis court and a thriving vegetable garden.
Slightly further away at 1.5 miles is the bustling market town of Edenbridge which has two railways stations that travel you to London in under an hour, a Waitrose, Tesco Express, Bakery, Post Office and much more. The Plough in Dormansland is a fantastic quintessential country pub providing no frills cooking that champions the superb local suppliers.
There are plenty of schooling choices in the area ranging from state to private including the much sought after outstanding Chiddingstone Primary, most of which can be accessed via the railway or local bus service. This beautiful area is incredibly peaceful and tranquil, offering a real escape from the fast-paced lives we have become accustomed to. View more View less
