Striking detached family home in need of complete refurbishment, on the edge of this popular village.
Oakfield House is a striking detached family home, built in the 1970s and coming to the market for the first time in 40 years, providing the incoming purchaser the opportunity to update and renovate, subject to the necessary building consents. The light and well-proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors, with salient points including a modern kitchen, wood panelled walls, some ceiling timbers, established and secluded gardens, which surround the property with a predominantly south facing aspect, an integral garage and off road parking. Also of note is the property's excellent proximity to the sought after and historic village of Ightham, together with good road and rail links.
The reception rooms are arranged over the first floor and comprise a double aspect sitting room with ceiling beams, a fireplace with fitted shelving to one side and a set of doors which provide views over the gardens, and access to a balcony and a dining room with wood panelled walls and ceiling, also with lovely views to the garden.
The modern kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a comprehensive range of sleek wall and base units and integrated appliances.
There is also a double bedroom on this floor, which has a triple aspect and is served by an en suite bathroom.
To the ground floor, a large entrance hall provides access to two further bedrooms, one of which is currently utilised as a TV room, with sliding doors to the rear terrace. There is also a well-appointed shower room and a separate sauna.
A staircase leads to the integral garage and a double aspect study.
Oakfield House is approached via a driveway, flanked on each side by areas of lawn and a multitude of established deciduous trees and shrubs.
The south facing gardens provide a lovely backdrop to the property and have a predominantly southerly aspect. The paved terrace and balcony both provide ideal areas for al fresco entertaining, and the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with border planted with a wide variety mature trees and shrubs, which provide year round interest and a high degree of privacy.
In total the plot amounts to about 0.23 of an acre.
