An imposing 5 bedroom detached house in a highly sought-after road in the centre of Sevenoaks. Constructed with a strong Arts and Crafts influence and designed by Charles Bowles, the house is in an elevated position with superb far-reaching views to the North Downs
Constructed in 1909 and extended by the current vendors, the Grade II Listed property is for sale for the first time in 32 years. It is a landmark house in Sevenoaks and was commissioned by the artist Mary Batchelor. There is an original painted panel of Knole House done by her in the drawing room, together with bell pulls designed by her. The second floor was used as her studio.
The house has a driveway down to a large detached garage but it is also accessed from The Drive via double pedestrian gates passing impressive box hedging. The substantial oak front door leads to the entrance hall, off which are the principal reception rooms. The dining room is to the front with exposed timbers, feature fireplace and superb views. The drawing room is south-facing with an attractive fireplace and French doors to the rear terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a lovely space having been extended by the current vendors to create a family area and opens to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of bespoke oak units with an island and an Aga.
On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms with the master having a shower area. There is a family bathroom and separate WC. On the second floor is a superb bedroom/games room and a further bedroom and bathroom.
The south-facing rear gardens are a delight. They are landscaped with a paved terrace, lawn and an array of established shrubs. The garage and drive offer off-road parking which is at a premium in the heart of town.
