Oh la la! Here we have Oast Cottage, a four-bedroom house in Limpsfield accessed via a long private driveway through about 1.4 acres of private gardens. It’s secluded and it’s full of character.
The house itself dates back to the 17th century with exposed beams, lead light windows and beautiful fireplaces. You enter the property via a charming entry hall, which leads through interlinking reception rooms including a music room, sitting room, library and dining room to a large kitchen/breakfast room which features a traditional Aga range cooker. A handy utility room also comes off the kitchen.
The dining room is full of charm, and includes a door out to the garden. There’s also a separate study on the ground floor, as well as a gym.
As well as the main four-bedroom house, there’s also a self-contained ground-floor suite which includes a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom – ideal as a granny flat or for guest accommodation.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms – two with ensuite shower rooms and one which connects, Jack and Jill style, to the main family bathroom.
Outside, the 1.4 acres of grounds are nothing short of stunning – and a gardener’s dream. There are expansive sweeping lawns, mature trees and formal hedging, a feature walkway with herbacious borders and wide York stone terrace.
There’s also a detached garage complex which is made up of two garages, three carports, a garden store and a large workshop with an inspection pit.
