'The Old Bakery' is a most wonderful Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Chelsfield Village, understood to have been built around 1664.
A working bakery until 1952, the property has since been converted into a home full of character and charm.
The accommodation is over two floors and includes two split-level reception areas downstairs and four bedrooms on the first floor. There is a wonderful bespoke country kitchen/breakfast room, plus, a downstairs shower room/WC and utility room. A first floor bathroom serves the bedrooms upstairs.
Features include beamed ceilings, exposed brickwork and a cosy inglenook fireplace in the living room, plus, a small cellar. Unusually, the property also has the benefit of an integral garage.
To the rear you will find a lovely landscaped garden just under 90' long with areas of paved patio and lawn, and mature flower and shrub beds. It also enjoys a south easterly aspect.
Chelsfield is a traditional English village with pub in the centre, village hall, playing field for children and surrounded by glorious Kentish countryside. It is well placed for commuters with a station less than a mile away and the M25 junction 4 is equally close.
The village has its own primary school and there are numerous reputable schools within the Orpington area. The town centre of Orpington has a comprehensive range of shops and facilities including the Walnuts Shopping Centre and Odeon cinema. Sports facilities are also well catered for with the Walnuts Leisure Centre, golf courses, football and rugby clubs all within the area. A little way out of town you will find larger stores at the Nugent Retail Park along with electrical superstores, furniture shops and DIY centres along the Sevenoaks Way. Shopping centres at Bluewater and Bromley can also be found within 10 miles drive or bus ride.
