A distinctive double fronted four bedroom detached property with pleasing elevations of mellow brick and warm terracotta scallop and vertical tiles under a pitched and tiled roof. In an elevated position, set back from the road, with views accross to the open countryside and is well screened by mature hedging and established shrubbery.
Set in the heart of Eynsford Village, designed and constructed in 1949 by a well-known business man, the current vendors being only the third owners. The property has been extended and upgraded with careful eye to detail which is evident in the replacement leaded windows and the external features of the ground floor extension. Many of the period features have been retained including the attractive recessed porch of angled brick, some original stained glass windows and the lovely Beech Herringbone parquet floor.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors. A light and spacious reception hall with a study area at the rear, an elegant 'L' shaped sitting room with an arched Claygate brick fireplace and French doors to the patio, a cool and pretty dining room, a well fitted kitchen, cloakroom and lobby which has open access to the conservatory. On the first floor, there is a galleried landing, on-site master bedroom, a spacious family bathroom and three further bedrooms.
Externally the delightful gardens have an unusual and versatile layout with level lawns to the front and side, a paved side patio, an elevated rear lawn, an ornamental lily pond and various seating areas around the garden. There is gated access to the rear of the property. The detached brick built garage and work shop offer the potential to use an annexe to the main house subject to planning, as there is ample off road parking on the drive at the rear of Stacklands, accessed via Pollyhaugh.
