About this property

  • Dartford House is a substantial semi-detached house circa 1891 set back from the road and screened by mature trees.

    Having been renovated by the current owners, the property offers well proportioned principle rooms that retain many period features including good ceiling heights, fireplaces, original beautifully stained glass windows, architraves and door casements.

    The ground floor accommodation has been re-configured to provide a stunning open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room with doors leading out to the rear garden with sizeable terrace.

    An adjoining studio has also been converted into a fantastic reception space currently used as a games room making Dartford House an ideal home for entertaining.

    On the first floor, the main staircase has a striking stained glass window and leads to the attractive principal bedrooms. There is a second staircase that leads to the dressing room of bedroom five making this an ideal guest bedroom.

    Outside
    The house is initially approached over a right of way from the road. This leads to electric double gates and to a wide gravelled parking and turning area for several vehicles. The trees at the front offer a high degree of maturity screening the property from the road. There are attractive winding steps leading to the front entrance.

    On the south side of the house the drive extends via gates and leads on to further parking. The gardens at the rear of the property provide a wonderful setting for this lovely home with a large terrace that is perfect for outside entertaining and an expanse of lawned garden that enjoys a South West aspect.

    At the far end of the garden there is access to a rear loke which leads to Judges Walk. The mature boundaries of the gardens have established trees and hedges giving a great sense of privacy.

What really makes the property stand out is the outside space. It's rare to find somewhere this close to the city centre in such a private setting with such a large garden.
