With a delightful setting close to the heart of the desirable village of Shoreham, this simply charming semi-detached cottage offers a quiet setting on a no-through road leading down to the river Darent and the popular Darent Valley Path. The Grade II-listed cottage is believed to be 15th century with later additions, built in the traditional style and having many beautifully preserved period features throughout, including exposed timber beams and a large inglenook fireplace. The property’s substantial character is complemented by modern improvements, featuring a lovely contemporary country style kitchen and attractive bath and shower rooms.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to approximately 1628 sq. ft., with a cottage-style layout offering good flexibility. The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises a sitting room with storage cupboard, separate dining room, kitchen with space for a breakfast table, bedroom with en-suite shower room, conservatory and family bathroom. On the first floor there are a further two double bedrooms.
Within the rear garden there is a stylish detached studio with W.C. which has excellent potential as a home office, gym or hobby room.
The front garden is stocked with a variety of shrubs and separated from the road by a charming picket fence, with a five-bar gate opening to a gravel parking area alongside the home. The rear garden is south facing and is mostly laid to lawn, with a number of well-established trees and shrubs providing interest and a pergola area at the rear having space for garden furniture. There is also a separate decking terrace adjoining the house. Please note that the neighbour has a right of way over the garden.
The popular village of Shoreham nestles beside the river Darent, which winds through the North Downs providing a wide choice of footpaths and bridleways including the Darent Valley Path. The village benefits from a number of amenities including a local store, golf club, primary school and a selection of well-regarded pubs. Further amenities can be found in nearby Sevenoaks (approx. 5 miles) where there is shopping, restaurants and a wealth of educational facilities. Shoreham station and nearby Otford have rail links to London Victoria/Blackfriars, whilst Sevenoaks has fast and frequent commuter services to Charing Cross and Cannon Street.
