Property Flirt

It’s the Flirt Alert! Time to nosey through the corridors and cupboards of another gorgeous pad. Shall we...?

Right then property pervs it’s time to look through the keyhole of another mega des res in Kent, have a poke around and guess how much it’s worth. The winner gets a romantic break with Jamie Dornan in the Maldives. Or, maybe not.

Come on. lower the helicopter, we’re going to poke our noses in their cupboards.

Er, nooo, don’t land there please. Mind the Dragon fountain and beautiful front lawn… Ah that’s better. This quiet private road will do, I’m sure the neighbours won’t mind one bit. Okay out you get, let’s look inside. We’re talking the cake, the icing AND the cherry on top

So let’s start with the cake… The location. Tucked-away on the south side of Sevenoaks at the end of a exclusive road, (shared with just 5 other houses) and benefiting from privacy and seclusion whilst being close to Sevenoaks amenities and mainline station.

Now, the icing. Built by the award winning and locally established Berkeley Homes in 2003, this detached family home is handsome and full of character yet being a new-build also perfectly proportioned and beautifully designed.

Firstly let me introduce you to the Open plan Kitchen/Breakfast/Family Room. *Swoon*. Just look at those swanky glossy surfaces and delightful dimensions.

Continuing with the spacious and stunning theme I can tell you this is a full 5,003 sqare foot of hunky house. Yes siree, this is a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 4 reception room corker! Just feast your eyes on the 3 further Reception Rooms and Study.

Slipping off our shoes we can glide upstairs to view the 5 double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and enjoying views out over the gardens. Oh and did I mention the walk-in wardrobe/dressing rooms in two of the bedrooms? There’s built-in wardrobes in two other bedrooms (oh but of course) – see really, it doesn’t get better than this.

Oh but hang on. What about the promised cherry on the cake? Over the detached triple garage is a gorgeous studio annexe. Pass me my pastels please, I feel my creative juices flowing.

Then there’s the beautifully landscaped gardens complete with water features and great spaces for entertaining…

Mature trees and high hedging gives a good degree of privacy and the elevated nature of the plot allows an unusual tree top view for a town property. Speaking of town – for anyone that doesn’t know Sevenoaks it’s just superbly placed for state, grammar and private schools. Sevenoaks offers a good range of shopping and leisure facilities. Tunbridge Wells and Bluewater shopping centres are also within 20 miles.

Sevenoaks mainline rail station offers fast and frequent services to London Charing Cross (via London Bridge and Waterloo East) and Cannon Street in about 32 minutes. Win, win, win.

Bramble Lane is just over 1 mile from the town centre and about 2 miles from Sevenoaks station. A footpath just a few hundred yards down Ashgrove Road is easily accessible providing walking opportunities, with the Common and surrounding farmland close by.

In short, if I haven’t made it crystal clear yet… I. Want. This. House. You too? But how much will it cost you? No cheating – work out the price you think it’s worth, consult your colleagues – or the cat – then lay your bets and click here to see how close you get. Then check on where your nearest bank is and start planning your raid.
