Description

Description
A most imposing house of immense character, built in 1933, and substantially extended over the years. Offering much potential, this has been a lovely family home to the sellers for the last thirty years or so, and is now ready for the next generation to move in and enjoy. The property, occupying a significantly wider than average plot, enjoys a striking, elevated position with distant views from many of the front aspect windows, and is set within easy walking distance of Orpington High Street with it's large Tesco Express superstore, plus a selection of other shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, gyms, and the Odeon Cinema Complex and Walnuts Leisure Centre. The mainline station with it's fast and frequent service to London, as well as bus routes serving a number of destinations, is also close by. Furthermore, the property is within easy reach of a selection of highly sought-after schools including St Olave's Grammar School For Boys and Newstead Wood School For Girls. Accommodation includes:- a welcoming entrance hall with oak paneling and balustrading to the staircase, two inter-connecting reception rooms, plus an additional study, a large conservatory taking in breathtaking views of the rear garden, most attractive and spacious kitchen/breakfast room, larger than average utility room, and downstairs cloakroom. Whilst, to the first floor, off an equally spacious and bright landing, there is a double aspect master bedroom with balcony overlooking the garden, and with an en-suite. Additionally, there is a guest bedroom also with an en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, and a family bathroom. The real feature of this property - and most unexpected for a property in such a central town location - is the lovely, secluded, approximately west facing park-like garden. It really is a unique find, and encompasses so many different areas- from a large terrace with adjacent outdoor heated spa/swimming pool, to a formal lawned area with an abundance of plants and shrubs that leads to a more natural wild mature garden. At the front of the house there is parking for many cars, plus a double garage. Viewing is a must in order to fully appreciate all that this handsome, sizeable house has to offer.

Rear Garden
Undoubtedly a true feature of this lovely family home, and a very rare and unique garden to be found so close to the town centre. This is a garden of many parts, and is very well secluded, pleasant and peaceful with an approximate westerly aspect, and backing onto other gardens. Immediately behind the property, and extending to the side, there is a very large terraced area - ideal for sitting and relaxing, or alternatively for outside entertaining and dining. There are steps that lead to a walled, lawned area, and here you find the raised 'Swim Spa' swimming pool with two inset spa seats and jets. The controls for this regulate both temperature and current therefore allowing for the most comfortable of swimming experiences. Further up the garden, via an arched pergola, there is another expanse of lawn and here the focal point is the large central circular plant and shrub bed, offering an abundance of different colours and shapes. Overlooking this, there is an open verandah sitting area. To the other side of the garden, and approached from the house via a lovely arched twine canopied path, there is a more mature and wild part of the garden with cultivation and composting area. Back down towards the terrace, there is a raised ornamental pond. With a vast variety of mature well stocked plant and shrub borders, there are also many different hedges and trees, including blossoms, firs, silver birch, and conifers to name just a few. There is outside lighting, outside power supply, and also two outside water taps.
