A beautiful period property with generous accommodation and open countryside views, situated in a semi-rural position near the popular village of Leigh and just a short drive from neighbouring towns of Sevenoaks and Tonbridge with their mainline rail links and extensive amenities.


This lovely detached family home was built in 1900 and has been the much beloved home of the current owners for the past 15 years. The sympathetic and generous extension that they completed resulted in a fabulous open plan kitchen space, with clearly defined areas for dining, relaxing and eating, and with a lovely aspect and access to the rear garden and countryside beyond. The house is located just outside the popular villages of Leigh and Chiddingstone, with easy access to Hildenborough, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks with their fast and frequent trains to London. It therefore combines rural living with all the convenience of town living just a short drive away.

The house starts with a useful internal porch, which leads to the entrance hall and the second reception room to the left, which the current owners are using as a home office. This room features an original fireplace, shelving and storage to the alcoves, and a oak floor, which is a feature of much of the downstairs accommodation. To the right is the lovely open plan kitchen, fitted with a range of cream shaker style wall and base units, topped with black granite, whilst a large island has an attractive oak block worktop. There is a large AGA included in the sale, along with a separate integrated oven. Adjacent is an inner coats cupboard with a WC beyond, and also a useful utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.

The elegant separate sitting room, is a light and bright space thanks to its dual aspect and French doors to the rear garden. This again has an original fireplace and access to a useful understairs cupboard. Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms, with the ones to the rear enjoying far reaching views over the open countryside and all rooms benefitting from dual aspect windows. The family bathroom is generous enough to feature a separate bath and shower cubicle and has attractive tongue and groove panelling. The master bedroom is also part of the new extension and is a spacious room, with separate dressing room and large ensuite shower room with underfloor heating, all again beautifully presented. One of the other bedrooms has an ensuite shower room. The loft is part-boarded and fitted with a loft ladder.

Outside, the house is approached via a carriageway driveway, with space for off-roading parking, which in turn leads to the large newly constructed single garage. To the rear, the garden has a Indian sandstone terrace flanking the rear and side of the house, with the rest of the garden laid to lawn with mature shrubs. The rear garden is separated from the front garden with a 2m high wall with an arched wrought-iron gate for access. There is a pedestrian gate perfectly positioned at the foot of the garden to access the countryside that surrounds the house.

This house will really appeal to families, who want to enjoy a slice of village life whilst being within easy distance of neighbouring towns for extensive amenities and mainline stations.
