An impressive and stylishly presented Grade II listed family home with planning for an annexe and home office, set in attractive gardens with far reaching views
The Coach House is an impressive Grade II listed property formerly serving the neighbouring house Darenth Hulme. The house has been in the same occupancy for about 10 years and has been updated by the present owners, providing stylish and well-presented accommodation arranged over three floors. To the rear is an attached vinery which could be incorporated into the main accommodation if required, subject to the necessary planning consents. Also of note are the two additional outbuildings; a former stables and garden store, both of which have planning permission to convert to ancillary accommodation and a home office. The house sits in secluded gardens and benefits from far reaching views to the front.
A front door opens to the generous entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor, coat and storage cupboards and access to the well-appointed shower room.
The reception rooms provide well proportioned accommodation ideal for both formal and informal entertaining. The sitting room is double aspect with an attractive outlook over the front provided by double opening glass doors and a high level window to the rear. The family room has direct access to the garden and has an outlook to the front together with a contemporary wood burning stove.
The impressive kitchen/dining room is also double aspect and is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units by Harvey Jones with Corian work surfaces which extend to provide a breakfast bar and incorporate a double sink with a Quooker hot tap. Appliances include an electric Aga, dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. The dining area has two fitted dresser style cupboards.
The utility room has additional storage cupboards, a butler sink and space for appliances. There is an outlook to the rear and a door to the side garden.
From the hall, stairs rise to the first floor which has a view into the vinery to the rear and access to the loft space.
The vaulted double aspect master bedroom has a view to the front and a feature exposed brick wall. The generous and contemporary styled en suite bathroom comprises a bath, separate shower cubicle, wall basin and WC.
There are two further bedrooms on this floor, both with attractive views to the front.
Arranged over the second floor is a further bedroom with an outlook to the front and small windows to the rear and both sides.
The house is approached over a shared drive which culminates in the stone pillared private entrance and drive which provides parking for a number of cars. To one side is a pond with aquatic planting, bound in part by an attractive wall, and there are double gates leading to the garden.
The studio/store was formerly stables and now comprises two store rooms and a studio/gym. This building has planning to convert to a one bedroom annexe.
Within the garden is a potting shed which has planning permission to convert to a home office with a WC.
The part walled garden is principally laid to lawn with areas of decking with inset lighting which provide ideal areas for al fresco entertaining and to enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside. There are beds and borders flanking the lawns planted with a number of trees and shrubs.
To the rear of the property is an unusual attached vinery which provides the opportunity to incorporate into the main accommodation or to use as intended, as a greenhouse to grow vines. There is also a boiler house and an additional garden shed.
