Period chic nestled within sprawling grounds in a typically serene Kentish village.

Prospect Cottage is far and away what your imagination might conjure up at the mention of rustic homes tucked away in a leafy corners of the Kent countryside.

In fact, this delightful country home feels like its own mini hamlet on account of the additional rooms and outbuildings distributed evenly around the main house. There’s also a private swimming pool and various terraced spots to enjoy sunshine, peace and tranquility at any time of the day.

Let’s focus on the main house. It’s a real eclectic mix of styles that work really well together. Bold colours are very much in tune with the homely feel of three reception spaces and pair exquisitely with the natural warmth transmitting from the exposed timbers.

White glossed tongue and groove ceilings with darker wood floors set the tone for a very welcoming environment. Upstairs, three nicely proportioned bedrooms, all with leafy vistas, share a generous family bathroom. 

The real statement room, however, is the beautifully curated 32 ft kitchen at the back of the house, which is essentially three rooms in one. The floor area is so vast that it easily accommodates a big family dining table plus space for an assortment of sofas. With a nod to it’s period heritage, the vaulted ceilings are suitably finished with more earthy timbered beams as well as an entire bank of windows and glazed doors which spill out onto the patio and swimming pool area. And capping this room, a glazed roof covers the large utility room accessed from the rear of the kitchen.

From this hugely social space outside, you can see the outbuildings that have layers of usability. Anything from guest accommodation to home workspaces. Both are very sizeable & private, with one having en-suite facilities.

The grounds are huge, and the position of the main residence at one corner of the plot ensures privacy and peace. But above all encourages you to make the most of every square meter, whether that be entertaining or living from the land.

One thing you’ll not be short on living here is the outdoors lifestyle, if that’s your thing. The opportunities to walk, run, cycle & ramble are endless and all start at the front door.

Theres a lovely mix of restaurants, coffee shops socialising haunts close by. Locksbottom Village is the closest with Chapter One restaurant, or The British Queen or slightly further away, Daisy Grey and Heathfields coffee shops serve up a mixture of day time coffee’s and evening dining.

Further afield, Sevenoaks is beautiful and historic town with a wide selection of gastronomic options to suit many tastes plus a variety of boutiques and shops.

And one of the best bits? This extraordinary set up is within sensible commuting distance to London at around one mile from Knockholt Station. From here, you can take direct services via Southeastern to London Bridge and Charing Cross. Alterative options are available. Chelsfield Station is a little further on with services to London Bridge or a short drive to Orpington where its possible to access direct services to Victoria and Cannon Street as well as London Bridge and Charing Cross.

It’s also a convenient spot for access to the motorway network. The M25 with its connections to the West and North of the country, is just mins away in the car. You can reach Both Gatwick and Heathrow very easily as well.
