A 5 bedroom detached period house with character features and a stunning location. Further 1 bedroom self-contained annex on the ground floor. Beautiful gardens with lovely views over fields and countryside.
This beautifully presented and much-loved 5 bedroom Detached home is steeped in history and still retains much of its original character and charm.
The property is found in the picturesque village of Fawkham Green. It is a rural village that is surrounded by countryside with plenty of walks and amenities nearby including an excellent primary school, village church and the Rising Sun public house. The neighbouring village of West Kingsdown is only a few miles away and offers access to local golf clubs and the famous Brands Hatch racing circuit. Local shopping facilities are available in Longfield and Bluewater shopping centre is just over 5 miles away. Longfield also has a mainline station with services to London Victoria in just over 30 minutes, this is about 1.5 miles away. Ebbsfleet International is around 6 miles away and offers a 20 minute link into St Pancras, London. The A2, A20 & M20 are within easy reach providing links to London and the coast by road.
The home is going to be perfect for a large or growing family and has the potential to accommodate an elderly relative having part of the ground floor accommodation to be used as a self-contained annex. The Entrance Hallway has connecting doors to all the principal rooms of the home. The Lounge & Dining Room both have stunning fireplaces as a focal point and the height of the ceilings adds to the size and grandeur of the rooms. If to be a busy home then having the downstairs W.C. will be a tick on the must have list. A Garden room connects and is open to the Kitchen/Breakfast room making it a lovely layout for entertaining. The Kitchen is a light and airy room having a vaulted ceiling and dual aspect windows, there are plenty of cupboards, worktops and spaces for all necessary appliances. A large internal lobby then takes you through to an almost separate wing of the home which is currently used like an annex but has a multitude of uses. The first 2 rooms can be configured however you choose, either as a Bedroom or a Lounge. A further inner lobby then has doors connecting to a beautifully appointed Bathroom and further Kitchen/Utility room. This side of the home could easily be used as an annex for an elderly relative, a teenager's first taste of living on their own or even a guest suite for friends and relatives. It is also worth mentioning that this home has a vast cellar area, there are 3 main areas which are currently used as a workshop, a boiler room and a storage/workshop area.
Upstairs the size of accommodation is as impressive as the ground floor. The Master bedroom is a large, bright room and has dual aspect windows with stunning views over the adjoining fields and countryside. It also has a walk-in Dressing room and En-suite which could make this a sanctuary of privacy and quiet for parents. A further 2 double bedrooms and 2 good-sized single rooms are on this floor and will have use of the family Bathroom.
Outside are generous gardens that wrap around the rear and side of the home allowing sunshine to be captured for the majority of the day. To the rear boundary is a natural hedgerow onto the adjoining fields adding to the countryside feel and making the garden feel bigger and more open. To the other side of the home is a driveway that will surpass many other homes for the number of vehicles that could be parked here. 6 cars can comfortably park but there is certainly room for more if having a social event.
This is truly a home that must be internally viewed to be fully appreciated so please call to set up your appointment.
