About this property

Presenting a rare and exciting opportunity, in one of the most sought-after locations in the area and adjoining the village cricket pitch, a detached period cottage now requiring renovation and restoration, set amongst private, landscaped gardens and light woodland.

In a wonderfully tranquil hamlet just to the southeast of Sevenoaks, an intriguing, detached cottage believed to date from the 1860s. With mixed external elevations of stone and tile hanging, the property is not Listed and has been in the same family for nearly fifty years. Presenting a marvellous and very rare opportunity for a new owner to create a wonderful home in one of the most sought-after locations in the Sevenoaks district, the cottage requires a programme of restoration, renovation and possibly extension – subject to all necessary building control requirements. At present extending to just over 1700 square feet together with garaging, the accommodation is arranged over two levels and backs on to the local village cricket pavilion. At ground floor level there is a reception hall leading to three reception rooms together with a kitchen/breakfast room and utility space, whilst the first floor is given over to three bedrooms – one with an en-suite shower room, balcony and spiral staircase down to the living room – and a bathroom.

Outside
The property is approached via its own sweeping drive, which leads through the gardens, past stately mature trees and on to a parking and turning area in front of the detached garaging. The gardens surround the house on three sides with large swathes of level lawn, fine mature trees, colourful shrubs and herbaceous borders, terracing and rose beds. The total plot extends to in excess of 7.2 acres as beyond the garden is a charming further lawned area encircled by shrubs such as rhododendrons that then open up to light, deciduous woodland.

Situation
Bitchet Green is a charming hamlet in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty about two and a half miles southeast of Seal village, where there are local shops for everyday needs. The thriving town of Sevenoaks is just less than five miles away with its excellent selection of supermarkets, high street stores, cafes, bars and restaurants. The locality is renowned for its choice of schooling at primary and secondary levels in both the state and private sectors, including primaries in Seal and Borough Green, Sevenoaks Prep School, New Beacon, Walthamstow Hall and Solefield School in Sevenoaks along with St Michael’s and Russell House in Otford, Trinity School, Weald of Kent Grammar School for Girls, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge public schools and the grammars in Tonbridge and Maidstone.
