South-facing gardens and exposed beams are impressing buyers at a four-bedroom house on the market. Homes & Living found out more.
On the market now is Oakmead, an extensively renovated attached house.
The property incorporates beautifully presented interiors and is within walking distance of Cranbrook’s High Street.
Four-bedroom Oakmead has recently been subject to an extensive programme of renovations, creating a revitalised, spacious family home.
It also retains a number of lovely original features including wooden floors, period fireplaces and exposed beams.
The accommodation is made up of three bright, airy reception rooms and further versatile living space is provided on the lower ground floor.
This is currently arranged to provide a playroom and bedroom but could be used in a variety of ways to suit your family’s requirements.
Of particular note is the bespoke made kitchen which incorporates hand-painted units with walnut worktops and high specification stainless steel dual fuel range cooker, double dishwasher and fridge freezer.
The bathroom has a freestanding bath and walk in shower.
The outside space at Oakmead wasn’t forgotten in the recent renovations and the wrap-around garden is a charming feature.
Access to the front of the house is via cast iron gates and through a neat clipped knot garden.
The south-facing part-walled back garden has clipped box topiary and masses of herbaceous plants and flowering shrubs, creating a delightful setting.
Access for vehicles is via nearby Waterloo Yard, with private parking reached through the car port.
The property is located directly opposite the highly regarded Cranbrook School and Staplehurst Station is just five miles away, providing frequent services to London.
