Heverswood Lodge is an individual four bedroom extended detached lodge house and offered with no onward chain. The property, which comes to the market for the first time in over 40 years, is located in the sought after village of Brasted, which offers many antique shops, public houses, a village shop and Tea Room. The accommodation offers the incoming purchaser an ideal opportunity to update and renovate as required, subject to the necessary building consents. It is versatile and therefore could be reconfigured and has annex potential. The property is approached via a side private driveway, which leads to the rear of the property. The 1.67 acres south-facing plot has ample off road parking, single detached garaging, superb, rear gardens with mature planting which creates a high degree of privacy and year round colour. Within the gardens, there are two green houses and several sheds. The garden part of the property leads to a five bar gate and adjoining paddocks created by post and rail fencing with the facilities of a stable block comprising two loose boxes and a hay store. We understand the rear part of the plot falls within the Greenbelt. To the front, there is a pedestrian gate and a paved path, which leads to the front door and areas of lawn. The grounds are a real feature and provide a lovely backdrop to the property. The rear plot having been used in the past for equestrian use it has this potential once again or something similar. The generous grounds could have other usages such as those buyers looking to have a more self-sufficient living by home growing. This vacant possession family home has bags of potential and is now looking for a new custodian that will now renovate and modernise this part period home and it is sure to suit an array of buyers, including growing families or those from London looking for an ‘escape to the country’ and a 'get away from it all' and experience village life, yet still been conveniently located for road and rail links into central London. The historic village falls in the Sevenoaks District of Kent.
