Gower is a spacious three bedroom house with generous living space in the heart of the village of Halstead. The property was built in the 1930s and has also been cleverly extended by the current owners, incorporating the old Post Office, to maximise ground floor space. Set over two floors, the neutrally decorated accommodation extends to 1,947 square feet in total.
There are two entrances to the ground floor, one to the side into the entrance hallway, where there is a useful WC and utility area and the other door opens into the spacious family / reception room at the front. The entertaining space includes a dining room at the rear of the house with floor to ceiling bi-fold doors to the garden, an adjoining sitting room with an open fireplace and attractive built-in cupboards into the chimney alcoves, a kitchen breakfast room and the family room, which has large windows either side of the door, wood style flooring and built in shelving. The kitchen has red tile flooring, matching base and eye level cream units with wooden work surfaces.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with roll top copper bath and separate shower. Two of the bedrooms are spacious double rooms with built in wardrobes, the third is smaller and ideal as child’s room or study. The house also boasts good storage, with an under-stairs cupboard in the sitting room, an airing cupboard and storage on the first floor. There is existing planning permission to extend into the generous loft space to create two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
Gower is positioned in the heart of the desirable village of Halstead, conveniently situated just outside of Greater London amid Kent countryside and just north of Sevenoaks. The village offers local facilities including village shop and Post Office, two Public Houses, a café, church, Halstead Community Primary School and nursery. The property is in the catchment area for Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge grammar schools.
A more extensive selection of shops and banking facilities can be found in Sevenoaks or Bromley.
