5 Bedroom Detached House, Sevenoaks Road, Orpington, BR6 9JL
'Newbury' is a charming detached property understood to date back to 1899 and overflows with features from the 'Arts and Crafts' period. Original Armorial stained glass leaded windows that have been restored with triple glazing, large oak doors, high ceilings and ornate cornicing are blended with a stunning oak Baronial staircase understood to have been rescued from an older property. The principle reception rooms are also unique in having flamboyant marble and stone fireplaces understood to pre date the house and having been originally installed in The House of Commons. Servant's bells can also be found in what was once the parlour and the living rooms.
The current owner has enjoyed the house for the last 19 years and informs us it was once a category winner in 'Beautiful Homes Magazine' a few years ago.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes four reception rooms off of the grand hallway downstairs, along with a bespoke handmade kitchen that leads into a bespoke conservatory. On the first floor you will find five bedrooms, two of which are interlinked to make a considerable suite. The family bathroom has impressive proportions of 12'2 x 11'6 with a claw foot bath and shower cubicle.
Outside, a sweeping driveway provides parking space for several vehicles and access to the attached garage. Further space to the side is ideal for extending (subject to planning permission) and currently leads to the rear gardens which are approximately 70' square and include a large heated summer house with hot tub. The property lies on the favoured south side of Orpington and is under half a mile of the mainline station (fast service to London Bridge in 17 minutes). Excellent grammar schools such as St. Olaves Boys and Newstead School for Girls are also within a mile.
A truly exceptional home.
