2 Bedrooms, 1 Reception, 1 Bathroom, Town House, Leasehold & Share of Freehold

GUIDE PRICE £475,000 - £500,000. Legg & Co are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful boutique townhouse set in the very heart of Sevenoaks. This unique property has been recently renovated in an elegant and innovative way, creating a stunning and spacious yet cosy dwelling and care has been taken to conserve the period features of this listed property and each room has been given its own individual character. The property is set over 3 floors, with sizeable rooms and plentiful storage for easy and comfortable living. All the windows are new and fitted with acoustic glass and wooden shutters and there are antique brass fittings throughout. This house is a mixture of interesting, alive and tranquil. The property has a very fortunate setting on the quieter and more sort-after London Road, within this old market town. Annual parking permits are readily available at a cost of £35 for properties in this location, for parking that is less than a 2 minute walk away. It is a short walk to Knole, Kent's last medieval deer park that stretches over 1000 acres and a 10 minute walk to Sevenoaks station which is on a direct line to London (22 minutes to London Bridge, 24 minutes to Cannon Street, 33 minutes to Charing Cross). Access to the M25 is a 6 minute drive. Sevenoaks itself is neighboured by many country villages, National Trust properties and places of beauty and interest, yet Bluewater shopping centre and Tunbridge Wells are only an approximate 20 minute drive and both of these and the local villages are accessible by the direct bus routes that run from the centre of Sevenoaks. The town boasts a large Waitrose and an M & S (including foodhall) amongst many independent gift and homeware shops and a diversity of cafes and restaurants. The property has its own private front door, which is accessed along a short internal alleyway directly off the high street, thus making the property more secluded and quiet. The front door enters into the kitchen (2.25 m x 3m), a trendy yet happy room, reminiscent of a warehouse conversion in its style, with white painted masonry bricks and black door and window frames. Kitchen units have been kept to floor-standing only, making the kitchen feel open and spacious, with storage space made up for in the walk-in larder and built-in shoe and coat cupboard, recycling bin and 50/50 fridge-freezer. The kitchen currently houses a small extendable oak table that carries through the other oak accents in the kitchen. The units are custom built solid European oak and a Bora induction hob with integrated extractor adds to the clean lines of the kitchen. Boiling and drinking water come straight from the antique brass Quooker and a toaster, Nutribullet and food mixer can be operated on the marble working shelf within the walk-in larder. The kitchen is fresh, bright and comfortable. A wood and paint staircase winds gently up to the first single bedroom (3m x 2.75m). A nice sized, elegantly decorated room, with beautiful, delicate blue floral paper adorning the walls and the ceiling, giving the impression of being within a spring garden. American walnut shelves snuggly fit into a recess and a built-in wardrobe, fronted with American Walnut doors not only provides considerable storage but also adds depth to the room. White painted floorboards stretch over the floor and white wooden shutters and a white ceiling fan adds to the effect of being within spring and summer. The first floorboarded landing then leads you straight into the perfectly proportioned sitting room (4.25m x 3.75m), on trend with bicoloured walls of white and pavilion grey adding to the quirkiness of the property. A well-proportioned room with plenty of space for a sofa and a couple of armchairs. A floor to ceiling cupboard cleverly set next to the chimney breast not only provides plenty of shelving for books and stationery, it has also been set up to house the TV and contains a purpose-built pull out desk, all of which can be put away and hidden by the closing of the doors returning the room simplicity and calm. The windows are adorned with solid wood shutters giving more character to the room but the highlight is the original fireplace embossed with dragons. A second set of wooden stairs leads up to the next floor, where your eyes set on a stunning bathroom (2.75m x 2.75m). The most beautiful Antonio Lupi Corian deep free-standing bath with an integrated seat has been positioned so as to enjoy the rooftops of the old jailhouse while taking a dip and sipping wine. The fluid lines of the bathroom continue with a corian basin, set on a floating oak shelf and an Antonio Lupi rimless WC and an ultimately sleek Lazzarini Way vertical radiator brings more contemporary style. The tiles give the impression of washed out stone, complimented by the wooden boards painted to the same colour. Next door, and into an effective and well-planned utility room, once again maximising space to the nth degree. Wall hung laundry baskets and compact, functional, stylish airers complement the chessboard flooring, making this indeed a delightful room. And finally…..the spacious master bedroom (4.5m x 3.75m). A delight, with a Lewis & Wood wallpaper adorned between walls painted in Farrow & Ball setting plaster. The original fireplace, wooden shutters and halo lighting have conjured up an entirely charming and restful room. Built-in wardrobes stretch the whole length of the room ….storage that never runs out. we highly reccommend booking to view to truly appreciate this property and the space and specification offered!!
