About this property

  • The Bower House is a superb example of a Grade II listed property, dating from the 16th Century with later additions, situated on the edge of the historic and picturesque Ightham village which is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    The bright, versatile and beautifully appointed accommodation is arranged over three floors, well-proportioned and stylishly presented throughout, with a wealth of character features seamlessly blending with contemporary embellishments. Salient points include a bespoke kitchen by Chambers, luxurious bathroom suites, attractive fireplaces, an oak staircase and flooring, bay and sash windows, window shutters, exposed ceiling timbers, secluded, landscaped gardens of about 0.5 acres, a detached double garage and an impressive garden room with a fully equipped kitchen, living area and shower room.

    The reception rooms provide excellent areas for entertaining and family living, comprising a large reception hall with a fireplace, a drawing room with an open fireplace inset with a wood burning stove and French doors to the rear terrace and a double aspect sitting room, also with a fireplace. A playroom has a bay window and a fireplace.

    The kitchen is fitted with bespoke wall and base units by Chambers, a butler sink, a four oven gas Aga and integral appliances, and the adjoining dining area has a fireplace, spiral staircase and doors to the terrace.

    A well-appointed utility room with an Aga and access to outside, and a cloakroom complete this floor. A cellar provides further storage and houses the boiler room.

    To the first floor is the elegant principal suite, served by a dressing room with fitted storage and en suite bathroom with a freestanding slipper bath.

    There are three further well-proportioned bedrooms, one currently utilised as a study and one served by stylish en suite facilities, and a separate shower room. A study encompasses the first floor landing.

    Across the second floor are four further bedrooms and a modern bathroom.

    The landscaped gardens amount to about 0.5 acres and create a wonderful backdrop, with a generous terrace that is ideal for al fresco entertaining and features a charming water well. The level, manicured garden has shaped beds and deep, well-stocked borders planted with a wide variety of colourful perennials, herbaceous shrubs, deciduous and specimen trees, creating a high degree of privacy and year round interest.

    The garden room benefits from central heating and a vaulted ceiling, with a living area, well-appointed kitchen and shower room. Adjacent to the garden room is a Victorian glasshouse and a gravelled terrace, creating a further seating area. The property is approached over a gravel driveway which provides ample parking and leads to the double open bay oak framed garage.
