About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Set at the head of a sweeping drive, The Knoll is a handsome Victorian house dating from the late nineteenth century together with later additions. Red brick external elevations are typical of the period together with oak framed windows – some with stone mullions - attractive tile hanging to the first floor, tall chimneys, under a pitched tiled roof. Internally the house retains many fine, Victorian features including tall ceilings with cornicing, oak flooring along with internal doors with brass fingers plates and handles. Refurbished by the present owners, reception areas are elegant and well proportioned, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room is furnished in a contemporary style with cabinetry by Great British Kitchens, granite work surfaces, integrated appliances by Neff and an oil fired Aga. An orangery by Peter Edmondson adjoins the kitchen and has bi-folding doors to the gardens. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a secondary kitchen and a games room with cloakroom and secondary stairs to the first floor – this could be more formally arranged to create an annexe if required.

The first floor is accessed via an easy rising oak staircase and is given over to seven bedrooms. The master suite, which has a lovely outlook over the gardens through a large bay window, has an en-suite shower room which is furnished in a contemporary style. The remaining bedrooms are all generously proportioned and supported by three bath/shower rooms, one of which is ‘Jack and Jill’.

The Knoll is perfectly positioned to enjoy village life as well as access to connections to Sevenoaks and the motorway network Ightham itself is a charming and historic village, world famous for Ightham Mote a medieval manor house now owned by The National Trust. Sevenoaks town is just under five miles away with an excellent selection of boutiques, specialist shops, bars, cafes and restaurants together with a selection of large supermarkets in and around the town. The area is renowned for a superb selection in high achieving schools in both the state and private sectors including prep schools such as Sevenoaks Prep, New Beacon and St Michaels Otford, primary schools in Ightham, Plaxtol and Shipbourne, public schools including Sevenoaks School and Tonbridge, secondary schools including Weald of Kent Grammar, Judd and Tonbridge Grammar School for Girls. There are many sporting venues in the locality including golf at Knole and The Wilderness, various local tennis, rugby, soccer and cricket clubs along with various gymnasiums.

The property is set back and approached via a pair of tall, wrought iron electric gates, on to a sweeping drive, leading to a large parking and turning area in front of the house and garaging. Taking full advantage of the plot, the lovely landscaped gardens have been laid out to reflect traditional English country garden design with some classical influences included such as extensive banks of rhododendrons which provide a riot of vibrant colour in spring, mature hedging, herbaceous borders, tall indigenous trees and specimen shrubs. A Japanese garden has been created to one side and the surrounding woodland has paths meandering through. The heated swimming pool has an attractive pagoda style pool house and the enclosed tennis court is all weather. A stable yard is enclosed by post and rail fencing and has two loose boxes together with a tack/feed room.
