About this property

  • Faircrouch, 22 Oakhill Road is a spacious, versatile and attractive detached family home built in 1926 with a later extension, and situated on this sought after private road. The property, which comes to the market for the first time in over 45 years, provides light, well presented and proportioned accommodation, offering the incoming purchaser an ideal opportunity to update and renovate as required, subject to necessary building consents. Also of note is the west-facing, Japanese-influenced, beautiful, flat rear garden amounting to about 0.5 of an acre, garaging, ample driveway parking and the very convenient location to the station, being within 0.4 miles by footpath.

    The principal reception rooms comprise a double aspect sitting room which features an attractive fireplace, inset with a wood burning stove, an adjoining conservatory with views over and access to the rear garden and a dining room with a view to the front and a brick feature fireplace.

    The kitchen has lovely views to the rear garden and links to the utility room and breakfast room which has fitted storage. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units with a range style electric oven and space for a fridge freezer.

    A study with a view to the front, a utility room with access to outside and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    Arranged over the first floor are five generously proportioned bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes and two with fitted wash basins.

    A well-appointed shower room with a separate W.C. and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

    A further staircase leads to a fully boarded and versatile attic, with views over the garden, an excellent ceiling height and light and power connected.

    The house is approached over a tarmacadam driveway, flanked on each side by established shrubs and evergreen hedging, providing ample parking and leading to the garage.

    The landscaped, west-facing rear garden is a real feature, providing a wonderful backdrop to the property, with an enchanting Japanese influence reflected in the planting and design throughout. The level garden is principally laid to lawn, with deep borders planted with a wide variety of perennials, herbaceous shrubs and mature specimen trees, including many acers, all providing year round colour and interest. Within the garden is a charming water feature and pond, together with timber Tea Houses, overlooking shaped beds, well-stocked with structural planting. A paved terrace spanning the width of the property and a further paved area towards the rear of the garden, provide ideal areas for relaxation and al fresco entertaining. There are two useful garden stores, and in total, the plot amounts to about 0.5 of an acre.

I love the Japanese inspired gardens and the enormous potential, particularly with the attic room.
