6 Bedroom Detached House, French Street, Kent, TN16 1PW

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

Set in one of the most sought after locations in the area, Mannings Wood is a country house built by Durtnell in 1936. Benefitting from an elevated position, affording spectacular views over gently rolling Kentish countryside, and with external elevations of red brick and Sussex-style tile hanging under a pitched roof, this handsome dwelling has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and restoration that has resulted in a sophisticated and understated combination of 21st century technology (including energy saving practices) and classic period features.

Works included overhauling the roof and tile hanging, re-wiring, re-plumbing, specially commissioned replacement double-glazed Crittall windows, a new private drainage treatment plant and the installation of a Mega Flow system and a Biomass boiler system.

Complete re-plastering and re-decoration was undertaken, along with restoration of the honey oak floors, staircase, balustrading and fire places.

The kitchen/breakfast room was designed and fitted by Rencraft with walnut cabinetry, green granite work surfaces, a Falcon range cooker and a Quooker hot tap. The reception rooms are elegant and positioned to the rear of the property in order to capture the exceptional views.

The first floor is given over to five bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms, with the Principal Suite having a dual aspect, a large walk-in closet and an en suite also fitted by Rencraft.

The second floor is accessed via the secondary staircase and is laid out to provide a spacious studio bedroom with a large en suite shower room that includes a sauna and a stream shower cabinet.

French Street is a small hamlet that is highly sought after due to its small number of properties.

Lying approx 1.5 miles to the south-east of Westerham, its name appears to derive from when the locality was under the ownership of John le Frenche circa 1254. Illustrious former residents include the 16th century religious reformer, John Frith, Major General James Wolfe and, of course, Sir Winston Churchill who chose Chartwell as his family home and lived there until his death.

Westerham has a charming mix of restaurants, cafes, banks, shops and boutiques, ensuring a strong local community and a thriving town with visitors attracted to its quaint atmosphere and historic associations.

The nearby the towns of Oxted (5 miles) and Sevenoaks (7 miles) provide fast train services to London Victoria (39 minutes) and London Bridge (32 minutes) and an excellent selection of local shops, cafes, supermarkets, restaurants, cinema, theatre and leisure centre.

The national motorway network is easily accessed via the M25 at Godstone (junction 6) or Sevenoaks (junction 5).

The area is renowned for its fine educational provision at pre-school, primary and secondary levels, in both the state and private sectors.

Approached via a drive to a parking and turning area in front of the detached garaging, the house sits within attractive grounds that are a particular feature of the property with mature trees, some light woodland, high hedging, expanses of lawn, well-stocked flower beds, shrubberies and a large York stone terrace.

The outdoor pool is heated via a heat exchange system, has a secure electric cover and is surrounded by a pool terrace, in addition to which there is a heated wave pool in a summerhouse-type chalet.

The all-weather tennis court is fully fenced and the present owner has installed an electric dog fence around the perimeter.

There is a secondary access for garden machinery and for the Biomass boiler outbuilding.
