A wonderful detached bungalow set in the idyllic hamlet of Goathurst Common on the outskirts of the picturesque Ide Hill village and within easy reach of Sevenoaks town and mainline station.
A generously sized entrance hall leads to the two reception rooms, both situated at the rear of the property and enjoying views out into the southwest facing rear garden. The sitting/dining room has windows on two sides and measures over 18ft across. The second reception is light and spacious with an extension that now makes a lovely cosy space to relax and enjoy the garden. French doors lead out to the rear garden's paved patio.
To the front is a kitchen with a large window, a door leading out to the side and a pantry cupboard. Across the hallway is a bathroom and the fourth bedroom, currently used as a study. Bedrooms one and two are both great sizes and benefit from views over the front and rear gardens. There is also a beautifully fitted wet room serving both bedrooms. Upstairs is a large and light double bedroom with en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. The adjoining loft space is easily accessible and provides plenty of useful storage but also has the potential to create further first-floor accommodation, subject to planning.
The Hollies is located in sought-after Ide Hill, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 0.6 of a mile from the centre of this picturesque Kent village. The property is within easy reach of the surrounding towns of Sevenoaks, Westerham, Tonbridge and Edenbridge.
Ide Hill offers a community shop, a public house and the very well regarded primary school. The property is surrounded by open, unspoilt countryside, providing an abundance of beautiful walks and is only 150m from access to Greensand Way at Stubbs Wood. Sevenoaks town centre is approximately 3 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of shopping facilities together with a cinema/theatre complex, cafes, restaurants, leisure centre and library. Transport links include Sevenoaks Station (2.7 miles away) which has direct fast services to London Bridge, Charing Cross and Cannon Street (from 26 minutes). The motorway network can be accessed at Junction 5 of the M25 and is approximately 4 miles away.
The property is situated well back from Nightingale Lane with a large mature front garden which is mainly laid to lawn and is made very private by mature hedges to the front and sides. A driveway leads to the front of the property and provides ample private off road parking. To the rear, the southwest facing garden benefits from a secluded and green outlook, surrounded by mature shrubs and hedges with a paved patio area at the rear of the property. It is an extremely quiet and tranquil garden to enjoy al-fresco dining and entertaining.
We have been informed by our clients that planning permissions has been approved for alterations to the ground to the ground floor layout to provide an open plan kitchen diner and for the addition of an entrance porch.
