A wonderful three-bedroom period property which once served as the coach house for Brasted Place, the neighbouring Grade I-listed country house (now converted) which was once a retreat for Emperor Napoleon III. The coach house itself is believed to date back to approximately 1790 and was converted by Durtnells in the 1960s. The house has been sympathetically extended and modernised over the years to create a bright and spacious home, with many of the rooms benefitting from a double or triple aspect and neutral décor throughout.
The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom, stunning kitchen breakfast room, dual aspect 20ft sitting room with an attractive fireplace and French doors to the patio and garden, generous orangery which overlooks the garden and provides extra living and dining space, guest bedroom / home office / playroom off the sitting room with a utility cupboard. The kitchen is fitted with a large central island and features quartz work surfaces, attractive painted wooden units and a number of integrated appliances including a dishwasher and microwave, with space for a range oven and American-style fridge freezer. There is further space for a kitchen table, making the room ideally suited to both entertaining and day-to-day family life. Stairs lead up from the orangery to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom with separate shower, plus a family bathroom also with a separate shower. The impressive master bedroom has a triple aspect and a wall of built in wardrobes. If necessary there is scope to return to the original layout and divide this room to create a fourth upstairs bedroom.
The house is situated right in the heart of the popular village of Brasted on a private access road within the grounds of Brasted Place. The village has two public houses, various antique shops, a tearoom and a village shop. Sevenoaks, historic Westerham and Oxted offer further amenities, with the house located four miles from Sevenoaks station which offers services to London from 30 minutes, and 1.7 miles from Westerham and 6 miles from Oxted which has connections to London Victoria.
The mature garden is a delight and of good size, comprising a level lawn, a variety of mature trees and shrubs, a wooden shed and two paved patio areas ideal for garden furniture. The garden can be accessed from the kitchen, orangery and sitting room. There is a rear gate leading directly to the front of the garage.
The property occupies a corner position on The Carriageway overlooking the courtyard and converted stable block with its listed clock tower. It is possible to park to the front of the house or alternatively in the detached garage to the rear of the house. Part of the garage has been converted to create a home gym.
