    About this property

    • Aston Cottage is a high quality family home located on one of the area's most unique and popular positions in Blackheath. Over the past few years, the current owners have completely remodelled the house to provide unique and stylish open plan living with the emphasis on light and space that is equally suitable for use as a comfortable family home or a delightful country hideaway.

      The welcoming entrance hall is a good size and leads through the reception room, a wonderfully light and comfortable room with a log burning stove and views of both the front and rear gardens. Off the hall is a delightful sun/art room with huge amounts of natural light from the skylight, and a guest cloakroom.
      The family room and dining room are both good sizes, ideal for entertaining guests and busy family life, and are simply separated by a number of steps, enjoying views over the gardens to the rear and woodland to the front. The kitchen has been superbly designed, fitted with high quality cabinetry and appliances, central island and vaulted ceiling with a door opening on to the pleasant patio and gardens beyond.

      There is a generous and well-appointed boot room with storage and utility room off the kitchen with separate access to the front of the house.

      An attractive oak staircase rises to a galleried landing that in turn leads to five double bedrooms, three en suites and a family bathroom incorporating high quality fittings throughout. The stunning principal bedroom includes a walk-in dressing room fitted with open cupboards and an en suite shower room with twin basins, separate WC and open views to the area towards Newland Corner.

      The is a large barn style garage to the side of the house (currently being used for storage as well as a gym) which is extremely flexible with its future use.

      The rear gardens have a private feel surrounded by woodland and a paddock, all primarily laid to lawn with mature hedging, a summer house at the bottom and a patio running across the rear of the house.

      There is a good size driveway to the front of the house with ample parking for a number of cars as well as side access to the garden.
