Attractive four / five bedroom period house of generous proportions dating originally from the early 1800s set on a generous 0.8 acre plot and offering versatile accommodation and further extension potential (STPP).
Wrotham Heath Place is an attractive double fronted attached period property that is believed to have been the ballroom wing of the original manor house. The house is of a red brick construction with sash windows and benefits from being the end property, giving a more secluded feel.
The front door opens into an inviting double height entrance hall from off which is access to the ground floor rooms and a staircase leading to the first floor. Double doors lead through to an impressive 24 ft. reception room which boasts intricate cornicing and pretty ceiling rose, two large sash windows with shutters and window seats, stripped wood flooring and a striking open fireplace with marble surround.
Further ground floor accommodation includes a study, downstairs WC, kitchen breakfast room with adjoining utility room, a bright conservatory / orangery overlooking the garden that the current owners use as a dining room, and a second reception room with attractive wall panelling and French doors to the terrace is currently used as a fifth bedroom but could equally be used as a play room, library or snug. Access to the cellar is from this room via a trap door. The cellar extends to 605 square feet and has conversion potential subject to planning and a buyer’s own investigations.
Stairs lead up from the hallway to a galleried landing on the first floor. The dual aspect master bedroom overlooks the rear garden and benefits from a spacious en-suite bathroom with separate shower. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
