Shall we celebrate the start of a new year with a nose around a gorgeous family home in Kent? Yes, I think so too.
Usual rules apply – look at the pics and description, guess the price and do a victory dance around the kitchen/office/dentist’s waiting room, when you get it spot on.
So, a few little factoids first… Highfield House is a peach of a period property on the edge of Knockholt. Your nearest big towns are Orpington to the north and Sevenoaks about 6 miles to the south. Bluewater is 15 miles away – so shopping is not going to be a problem. And in that prime spot you’ve got easy access into London via M25 for motorists or by train (Cannon Street or Charing Cross) and all the great Grammar schools of Tonbridge and Sevenoaks on your doorstep.
So through, the five bar gate and crunch over a shingle driveway with me – pausing to admire the Rhododendrons and Azaleas that line the borders. And then, to the door – after you! Here’s a visual feast for starters:
What you’re looking at here is a 5 bedroom, detached property with oodles of period features, elegant proportions and shapely sized rooms. It’s not been on the market since 1950 – so this is a rare find – and a perfect chance to get your hands on somewhere special and update it to your tastes… Come on, swing on the staircase and up we go!
The property boasts stunning views, from the formal garden, to the orchard beyond and there’s even a stable and paddock (but of course). The total plot amounts to approximately 2.2 acres.
Oh, there you are! What took you so long? Been nosing around that gorgeous garden, haven’t you? So how much? I hear you cry. Oh come now, you have to guess the price, that’s the fun! Were you spot on? Well, just click here to find out.
