Constructed in 1901 by the historic and renowned local builder, Durtnell, Deepdale is a handsome and generously proportioned detached house, enjoying fabulous, far reaching views to the south. Presenting a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to create the quintessential country house, the property is being brought to the market for the first time in nearly fifty years. Accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the further possibility of converting the expansive loft (subject to the relevant planning approval) and displays features such as leaded light windows, period fireplaces, an attractive staircase and a covered loggia with direct access from the house. There is original wooden flooring in the dining room and drawing room and both rooms are graciously proportioned with a fine aspect over the rear gardens and beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is supported by domestic offices such as the utility and boiler rooms and direct access out to the gardens. Leading to the upper levels are two staircases, one of which is of ornate design and is easy rising. The bedrooms are principally laid out over the first floor and include the master, which has an en-suite bathroom. Five further bedrooms are serviced by two bathrooms and a separate W.C. The second floor is at present given over to attic storage and fully boarded and runs across the whole length of the house.
Occupying an elevated position on Westerham Hill, the house is located approximately 1.6 miles from the popular town of Westerham, which has various pubs, shops, cafes and various antique and lifestyle shops. Sevenoaks and Oxted offer further amenities, with the house located 6.5 miles from Sevenoaks station, which offers services to London from 24 minutes, 1.6 miles from Westerham and 5.5 miles from Oxted, which has connections to London Victoria and London St Pancras. Access to the M25 (Junction 5) and A21 can be found north of Sevenoaks at the Chevening Interchange and leads to the major motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted International Airports, as well as the Channel Tunnel Terminus, Ebbsfleet International and the South Coast.
There is an excellent selection of schooling in the area which includes the state grammar schools in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, local village primary schools as well as Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Caterham public schools and various prep schools in Sevenoaks and Oxted.
In total the grounds extend to approximately 10.704 acres with formal areas of level lawn, kitchen garden, woodland and terracing, colourful herbaceous borders, mature shrubs, hedging and trees. There is the added benefit of a brick built greenhouse, vine house and a swimming pool, all of which enjoy the far reaching southerly views. A sweeping driveway services the property, which benefits from a turning circle alongside the detached garage/workshop. Much of the land is woodland, however there are many pathways that have been created so that the owner can do various different walks and utilise all the acreage.
