    About this property

    • Timbers is an attractive detached bungalow of excellent proportions, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within lovely, established grounds of about 1.07 acres, creating a high degree of privacy and with direct pedestrian access to the adjoining woods of the Montreal Estate, which features a number of public footpaths. The property, which is offered with no onward chain, features bright, versatile and well-presented accommodation of over 1,700 sq ft (158 sq m), and is set in the hamlet of Goathurst Common, on the edge of popular Ide Hill village with its church, primary school, public house and community shop, and excellent access to the M25 (approx. 2.5 miles) and Sevenoaks station (3.3 miles).

      The well-proportioned, double aspect sitting room features a wood burning stove and a study has a view to the front.

      The kitchen has a curved bay window and is well appointed with a range of wall and base units, an island unit and space for appliances, with the adjoining dining area featuring a bank of storage with an integrated microwave.

      There are four bedrooms, one with fitted storage and another with an adjoining storeroom.

      A modern family bathroom and a separate cloakroom complete the accommodation.

      A detached, double aspect office with a sedum roof has excellent proportions and benefits from underfloor heating, a shower room and a mezzanine level, ideal for home working, guest accommodation and storage.

      The property is approached via a private drive, shared by a neighbouring property, which leads to an extensive parking area.

      Timbers benefits from extant planning permission (23/02526/FUL) for a replacement dwelling, if required.

      The gardens wrap around the property and are a wonderful feature, creating a high degree of privacy and amounting to 1.07 acres. A paved terrace spans the width of the front elevation and has a delightful southerly aspect, with the remainder of the garden laid to sweeping lawn, with a wide variety of established deciduous and specimen trees to the boundaries. There is also a large woodstore and two garden implement stores.

    I love this setting, such a wonderful rural spot, yet very well located for Sevenoaks.
