convenient for both Orpington amenities and J4 of the M25. The Grade II-listed home is believed to have been built circa 400 years ago as a traditional timber-framed home and later refaced in the 19th century. The property is built in the characteristic local vernacular with weatherboard and brick elevations under a slate roof, with the interior offering a wealth of original features including exposed timber beams, character fireplaces and wall panelling. The house has been attractively decorated and offers a good mix of modern and period style, though would benefit from some cosmetic modernisation offering excellent scope for personalisation by the new owner. The rooms are well sized and the layout is versatile with a choice of reception rooms, and there are lovely views from the lower windows over the garden and the upper floor across the surrounding countryside.
On the ground floor, a porch opens onto a dining room leading to a double aspect sitting room, family room, shower room with w.c., kitchen and conservatory. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with ample fitted storage and an en suite shower room. The three further bedrooms all have good storage and share a family bath/shower room.
The gardens are a highlight of the property, which are very well established and provide a peaceful and idyllic setting. To the front, the property is set back from the road behind a pretty garden and picket fence. A driveway accessed from Jubilee Road provides off-street parking and access to the garage and store. The rear garden is well enclosed by hedging and features a huge variety of specimen trees and plants, with raised borders, roses, pergola and paved patio for outdoor dining.
The property is positioned close to the hamlet of Well Hill, about 3 miles outside of Orpington which has plentiful amenities and shopping. Local schools include Brown’s School, Chelsfield Primary and St Olave’s Grammar. There is easy access to the M25 via the A21 at Junction 4, with Orpington station being 3.5 miles distant and offering fast commuter services to London in about 16 minutes.
