    Description

    A beautifully restored historic Queen Anne house with considerable presence. This Grade 11 Listed house with Victorian and Edwardian additions, is in the centre of this popular village, surrounded by secluded mature gardens and approached by a sweeping gravel drive. Sympathetically restored by the current and last owners, there is extensive family accommodation, with 7 bedrooms, four receptions and kitchen/breakfast room all in keeping with the style of the house. The owners made every effort to preserve the original interior of the house, including retention of lime washed ceilings and walls in some rooms, original doors, skirting and floors to most rooms and large sash windows, with original shutters and fireplaces to all main reception rooms.
    The canopied entrance with original oak door leads into a welcoming hall, there is a pleasant sitting room with log burner, dining room with door to the more formal drawing room with impressive open fireplace. The bespoke, extensively fitted 35' kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating and Rangemaster range cooker leads to a utility room and the rear hall giving access to the garden and the 'Oak room'. Built in Edwardian times, this large room ideal is for entertaining with feature oak beams and doors opening onto a paved terrace. Attached to this room is an original flint and brick stable with hayloft above, ideal for further accommodation if required. There are five bedrooms to the first floor, with two bathrooms and a shower room, one with under floor heating and two bedrooms on the second floor.
    The grounds of approximately 1 acre are a particular feature of the house with an impressive pillared entrance opening into the sweeping formal gravelled drive. The boundary is mostly walled, both original and more recent, brick and flint, with some new fencing. The gardens are mature, with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs, particular highlights being Monkey Puzzle, Copper Beech and Walnut trees, as well as recently planted Hornbeam trees along one boundary. In lockdown, the owners' sons created a woodland walk, there is also a formal low box hedge garden with shingle paths and feature centre piece. There is also a wooden greenhouse/potting shed, raised timber vegetable planters, walled rear courtyard and further paved seating areas.
    Located in the heart of Bredhurst village, adjacent to the North Downs a designated area of Outstanding Natural beauty close to the Pilgrims Way. Though set away from the 'hustle and bustle' of daily life the property is very well-placed for communication links being within easy access of from junction 4 of the M2 and around 6 miles from Junction 7 of the M20, both linking to the M25 as well as offering road connections to the Eurotunnel and Channel Ports. Rainham Railway station is around 3 miles offering services to London's major stations including Cannon Street, Blackfriars and Victoria and hi-speed services to St Pancras.
