A stunning attached period villa within Cranbrook School catchment area.
Believed to date from 1840 and built by Lady Louisa de Spaen, Camden House is an elegant unlisted 19th century Regency home originally known as Camden Lodge. This charming and striking four bedroom property retains a wealth of period features throughout including sash windows, many with working window shutters; high ceilings, heavy panelled internal doors, picture rails and period-style radiators typical of the period.
The property has been refurbished by the current owners creating elegant living accommodation, whilst retaining a wealth of period features with the accommodation amounting to 3,700 sq ft.
Beautifully proportioned southerly facing principal reception rooms flow seamlessly featuring original stained flooring and creating a perfect suite of rooms for entertaining. They enjoy differing garden aspects and include a drawing room with large bay window and access to a covered verandah and a formal dining room with sash windows and window shutters. Both rooms feature attractive period fireplaces with marble surrounds.
Further reception rooms flow off the grand entrance hall and include a well proportioned snug with log burner and a staircase which leads to the lower ground floor to an adaptable living space currently used as a cinema room but together with a kitchenette and shower room, could be used as ancillary accommodation. A study has a log burner along with custom-made desk and enjoys views over the front gardens via a sash window.
The bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast with underfloor heating is a stunning space, with doors to each side affording a double aspect and an impressive vaulted ceiling to allow the light that this room boasts. Equipped with an extensive range of bespoke cupboards, some lined in walnut and a central island with super white quartzite worktops, this room is sure to take your breath away. Appliances include an electric Aga, Miele oven, dishwasher and steam microwave/oven. There is space for a fridge/freezer. Bi-fold doors lead to the beautiful contemporary-style courtyard, finished to an excellent standard with porcelain tiles and lined with cypress trees and a stunning range of seasonal shrubs.
A utility room is fitted to match the kitchen and has space for various appliances.
Over the first floor there is a total of four bedrooms, two shower rooms and one bathroom, fitted with The Cast Iron Bath Company sanitary ware. The principal bedroom suite is beautiful with southerly facing views over the gardens.
Outside, electric gates open onto the shared gravel drive which leads to a turning circle and a detached double garage which provides off road parking.
