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. Supposedly the most bombed village in Britain, the famous great white cross cut into 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. A very friendly village with an active sense of community, Shoreham hosts a range of events throughout the year, including the famed ‘Duck’ Race, Village Fete, Garden Safari, Midsummer Festival and the Heavy Horse Show. Further, the popular Darenth Valley Golf Course is located on the edge of the village for those with a sporting interest.
