'Forkways' is a most attractive Grade II listed building situated on the outskirts of the semi-rural village of Chelsfield and surrounded by glorious Kentish countryside. It sits on a plot of just over one third of an acre with well-tended gardens all around and parts are believed to date back to the 16th Century.
The rear gardens are south facing and there are delightful views over rolling pastures to both front and rear.
The accommodation is over two floors and begins with a pretty entrance vestibule that gives way to dining room with exposed brick fireplace, beamed ceiling and part timber panelled walls.
From here you can also access a double aspect reception room that makes an ideal study with stairs that lead you to the first floor landing.
A welcoming sitting room features another brick fireplace and exposed beams and two sets of double doors facing south and opening to the rear garden.
The kitchen is in the 'country' style and comprehensively fitted with a range of wall and base units with contrasting granite work surfaces, butler sink and a range cooker.
An opening from the kitchen leads you to a wonderful, heated dining conservatory that is ideally positioned to enjoy views over the garden and has tiled floors that run through from the kitchen. You will also find a combined utility room and downstairs WC off of a lobby that also provides another access point to the garden.
Upstairs, a spacious landing provides access to the four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The double aspect master bedroom is of generous proportions and has its own en-suite shower room with WC. All four bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.
The family bathroom has a classic white suite including a claw foot freestanding bath, walk-in shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC.
Outside, the pretty, manicured gardens are enclosed by a traditional white picket fence and the driveway to the garaging is to the right hand side as you look at the house.
The rear gardens enjoy the sunny southerly aspect and include areas of lawn, flower and shrub beds plus a block paved patio, paved terrace, heritage rose walk and a pergola.
The property also has a detached double garage with an internal store room accessed from Jubilee Road. Planning permission exists for the replacement of the existing garage and associated landscape works ref: DC/18/03188/FULL6.
