HIS fine Edwardian family house has a light and spacious interior and boasts some excellent period features, including attractive fireplaces, leaded light windows, parquet flooring and cast iron radiators. Located in the highly regarded village of Speldhurst, it is set back from the road and approached over an in-and-out drive. To the ground floor there is an entrance porch opening to a reception hall. The elegant, wellproportioned drawing room has a triple-aspect outlook with a door out to the terrace, an open fireplace and double doors to the dining room. The family room also has an open fireplace and a door to the terrace, and there is a study fitted with shelving and cupboards. The kitchen/ breakfast room is a good size and fitted with a range of wooden units and a fireplace recess with wood-burning stove. There is also a walkin larder and a useful boot room.

The bedrooms are served by two bathrooms and a separate WC. At the front of the house, the drive is flanked by a good area of semi-circular lawn with a detached triple garage block to the side. The house is screened from the road by evergreen hedging and at the rear the southwest facing terrace leads to a long lawn, with mature trees and shrubs to either side. At the lower end of the garden is a tennis court which requires some remedial maintenance. In all, the land totals just under three quarters of an acre.
