Poppy Cottage is an immensely characterful and pretty Victorian cottage, built in approximately 1890. Extending to 1163 sq. ft. the house is neutrally decorated throughout yet retains many period features throughout including fireplaces, fittings and wood flooring. The ground floor comprises a sitting room with a delightful cast iron feature fireplace and wall panelling, a dining room with a door to the courtyard, which leads through to a modern kitchen that features cream units and wooden worktops. Behind the kitchen there is a utility room that can also be accessed from the courtyard and a family bathroom that retains the period freestanding roll top bath, period sink and tiled flooring, and has separate shower. On the upper floor there are three bedrooms and a shower room with WC. There is also a boarded attic with a pull down ladder.
Poppy Cottage is situated along a private no-through lane in a tucked away location yet within 0.4 miles from Chevening C of E primary school and half a mile from the centre of Chipstead village. Chipstead village, which has a public house and sailing club, has a strong sense of community and indeed has won the ‘Best Kept Village in Kent’ award several times. The cottage is also 1.2 miles from Amherst junior school. Sevenoaks station which offers services to London Bridge, Cannon Street/Charing Cross in approximately 30/35 minutes is 2.2 miles away.
The house benefits from a wonderful L shaped rear garden which has many mature trees and plants and offers great space for a family to play and entertain. Directly outside the house there is a secluded courtyard with a wood store. A path leads to the main garden which is principally laid to lawn with a circular paved seating area. The owners installed a summerhouse which becomes an extra room in the summer and overlooks the remaining section of garden. The house also benefits from off street parking to the side of the next door property, from which a path leads directly into the rear garden.
