Please call to register your interest in this stunning property which is coming to the market soon.

Aegis Estate Agents are delighted to present what is, in our opinion, an architectural gem of a property to the market. A unique “art deco” detached residence of some historical interest set within its own impressive grounds. This imposing house benefits from stunning south facing views across unspoilt open countryside, yet is within a short distance to Hayes & West Wickham rail Stations and a short distance from the pretty village of Keston. This unique property has undergone a comprehensive and complex programme of refurbishment to the interior and exterior in recent years, far too extensive to include within these sales particulars, but as a result has a number of unique and unusual features. The property has changed hands only three times since it was built in 1936. We believe represents a real opportunity for buyers looking to purchase a rare house indeed. The accommodation comprises of a large open plan living room, with the advantage of an original solid wood room divider providing its own inset full size door to the second reception room when the need arises. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with walk in pantry, a utility area and a cloakroom off the inner hall completing accommodation to the ground floor. To the first floor are three bedrooms, the smallest of which benefits from a glazed shower cubicle and balcony to the front. The impressively proportioned master bedroom again benefits from wonderful views and a bright and spacious feel, which is echoed throughout the property. The extensive grounds include two detached garages to the front, set before an inclined landscaped frontage with pedestrian gate and path leading to the house, and a drive leading to hard standing for vehicles to the side of the property. There is an array of mature trees and shrubs set within attractive borders throughout the grounds. To the rear are a detached summerhouse set on concrete foundations, a utility shed and a patio area with lawn section, set before a wooded area leading up to the border of West Wickham Common. The property further benefits from planning approval for a third storey extension. 

A full inspection is necessary to appreciate the character, scope and originality of this impressive and unique house.
