An enchanting and historic Hall House in idyllic rural location
TRULY reflective of the period, Oakenden is a Grade II* listed medieval Hall House in the hamlet of Chiddingstone Hoath near Sevenoaks which has origins dating back to 1490. Set within beautiful grounds, the property offers unspoilt and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside and is on the market through Savills Sevenoaks.
Oliver Hodges, of Savills Sevenoaks, said: “Oakenden is an enchanting country home which has been in the same family since the 1950’s. Caringly restored the property retains a wealth of character and offers huge potential for prospective buyers.”
The property is rich in period features throughout including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and wide oak floorboards. The ground floor accommodation comprises two reception rooms, with views over the noteworthy, established gardens and a charming kitchen/ breakfast room. The first and second floor accommodation presents a master bedroom and three further bedrooms.
The property benefits from a one bedroom annexe, attached to the property with separate access. The property offers potential for expansion with the annex that could easily be incorporated into the main residence together with lapsed planning permission to extend the kitchen.
The front aspect of the property is particularly charming with a picket fence enclosing a garden laid to lawn. There is also parking for several cars. The grounds are generous and planted with an abundance of plants and shrubs which further enhance the peaceful setting. Much of the gardens are laid to lawn, there is a brick terrace to the rear of the property which offers a lovely space for al fresco dining and an array of paths lead to further seating from which to enjoy the exceptional views.
Oliver added: “Oakenden offers a charming home in a tranquil rural setting. The annexe offers opportunity for multi – generational living or guest accommodation while there is equally significant potential for expansion.”
Oakenden is being marketed by Savills, Sevenoaks with a guide price of £1,250,000. For more information, please contact Oliver Hodges on 01732 789 700.
