A house of two halves: An exceptional bespoke contemporary home in this prime position, tucked away just a few hundred yards from the High Street and within half a mile of the station.
Eden Road is located in an elevated position, tucked away in the ‘old village’ area at the top of Mount Sion in the conservation area above the High Street. The historic Pantiles, the Common and the mainline station offering regular commuter services to London Bridge (from 44mins), Cannon Street (from 52mins), Waterloo East (from 53 mins) and Charing Cross (from 57 mins) all lie within half a mile of the property.
Schools in the area include the sought-after Claremont Primary School (about 0.5 miles on foot and 0.7 miles by road), The Mead School (approximately 0.5 miles), Holmewood House and Rose Hill, whilst the Kent grammar schools for girls and boys lie on the north side of the town. Independent senior schools can be found in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Eastbourne.
Communications: The M25 can be accessed via the A21 to the north of the town centre, linking to the national motorway networks, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports and the Channel Tunnel.
Every corner of this striking contemporary home is full of surprises. Tucked away in an elevated position in a private road off Mount Sion the property was completed in 2014, replacing a derelict house and built to high bespoke specification with expansive accommodation designed to enhance the natural light from every angle.
This exceptional centrally-located house lies within a half mile walk of the High Street, historic Pantiles and the mainline station. There is a good choice of schools in the vicinity, including independent and Kent grammar schools; the tennis club and Kent County cricket ground are also within half a mile, making this the ideal base for family life.
The accommodation flows over four floors with beautiful mellow oak and cherry joinery throughout creating a wonderful feeling of warmth. The impression of light and space can be immediately appreciated on entry into the elegant principal living area with its superb oak and glass open tread staircase spiralling with the high atrium ceiling above and the banks of huge picture windows and doors opening out from the drawing room to the garden. A separate characterful study to the front is fitted on the curve with oak bookshelves providing more intimate space. Both rooms have fireplaces.
By contrast, the northern side of the house is more traditional, being constructed to reflect the circa 17th century character of the original dwelling with brick and tile hung elevations and sash windows. The farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room is complete with an Aga, walk-in pantry and period style doors opening out to a part-walled red brick courtyard garden. The dining room has a large glass pivot door opening out to a secondary courtyard, creating many options for enjoyment of the
wonderful outdoor space which surrounds the house.
A spacious galleried landing gives access to a dual aspect master suite offering a lovely outlook on the southerly side, three further bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms.
Of particular note is the adaptable accommodation at the rear of the house, comprising a first floor study area and a double en suite ‘eaves’ bedroom ideal for use as a guest wing with its own private side entrance on the ground floor.
The generous outdoor space surrounds the house with bricked courtyards and an extensive gently curved raised terrace accessed from the drawing room and the kitchen/breakfast room. The main area of the garden stretches to the south easterly side, designed for easy maintenance being parterre-style with a hint of the Lutyens influence, with a high brick wall on the north boundary, mixed hedging and herbaceous borders softening the hard landscaping.
The property is accessed at lower ground floor level from Eden Road through high wrought iron pedestrian and vehicular gates with a remote entry system. Steps lead up to the main front entrance and a secondary pedestrian gate allows access to the west side and the guest wing entrance. The double garage on this level, together with store rooms, is also accessed from within the house and there is secure forecourt parking for several cars.
