‘Little Copt’ is situated in a glorious setting and this distinctive five bedroom detached three storey (approximately 4051 Sq. Ft) property sits within the parish and confines of Shoreham Village, an idyllic Kent village surrounded by the beautiful rolling Kent Downs. Constructed in 2007 and never lived in by the current owners, the property is approached via a private drive which leads to extensive off road parking with five bar gate to the side leading to the private garden. A wrought iron gate with enclosing walls and steps leads to the main entrance with pitched roof timber recessed porch with courtesy lights. The property sits in a slightly elevated position and the front flagstone terrace can also be accessed off of the main reception that has a scenic view overlooking a separate 10 acre plot of fields (that can be bought with or without the property). To the rear the kitchen / breakfast / dining room leads out to the property’s rear secluded garden of gently rolling lawns, specimen trees and shrubs. The ground and first floor accommodate the five bedrooms with two shower rooms on the ground floor and a further shower room and one ensuite bathroom on the first floor.
The large lower ground floor area with integral garage, utility room and cloakroom also offers a wide scope of potential to create your own; studio / office / workshop, gym / spa / steam / sauna, cinema room / hydro pool, ambient store and / or wine cellar. This property with equestrian potential is also a ‘Perfick’ location for anyone wanting to live the ‘Pop Larkin’ lifestyle with an opportunity for a hobby farm, with your own horses, llamas, sheep, goats chickens or similar livestock. With the option of the additional land this unique home has endless possibilities for the next owner.
Location The village of Shoreham sits beside the River Darent as it winds through the North Downs and is situated six miles north of Sevenoaks, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reputed to be the most bombed village in Britain, the famous great white cross, cut in the chalk hillside is a monument to commemorate the dead of the First World War. The fascinating Shoreham Aircraft Museum holds hundreds of aviation relics and has a charming tearoom and tea garden. The village has a primary school, recreation ground, several pubs serving food, an excellent village store and post office. Shoreham Village hosts lots of events throughout the year, including the famed 'Duck' Race, Village Fete, Garden Safari, Midsummer Festival and the Heavy Horse Show. The Mount in Shoreham is a boutique Vineyard producing award winning still and sparkling wines and holds regular wine tasting events. Darenth Valley Golf Course is located on the edge of the village.

Seller Insight This is the ideal home for everyday life and entertaining alike,” say the current owners of this modern home built in 2007, “with flexible open plan living accommodation and a lovely secluded back garden with shady planted trees and a sunny patio area for al fresco dining. Though the house itself is very sociable, Little Copt enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting on the edge of Shoreham Village, within close proximity to the train station and to Sevenoaks. If the property is purchased with the additional 10 acres of land opposite, which incidentally has an array of various wildlife visitors, the opportunities for this home are countless.
Indeed, it was the superb location of Little Copt which first attracted the current owners to the property. Shoreham is a lovely little village boasting a handful of pubs; an excellent village store and post office; and a boutique vineyard producing award winning wines and hosting regular wine tasting events, “they say. “There is a superb primary school just a short walk from the house, and a choice of excellent comprehensive, grammar and private schools within easy reach for older children, too. The location truly offers the best of both worlds: there is mile upon mile of beautiful open countryside right on the doorstep, and the station is quite literally a stone’s throw away for direct services into London for commuting to work. This is a location that would be hard to better.
The village nestles beside the River Darent as it winds through the North Downs,” the owners continue, “and is situated six miles north of Sevenoaks, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
