Updated Tudor-style treasure with pools and a tennis court

    Byways

    Byways is a grand and substantial house in a semi-rural position on the edge of Bessels Green, just one and a half miles from Sevenoaks station.

    With delightful landscaped gardens, a swimming pool and a tennis court, the house is believed to have been built around 1900, with later additions.

    There is a strong Tudor influence with leaded light windows, exposed timbers and timber panelling throughout.

    On the ground floor there is an impressive reception hall, a dual-aspect drawing room with a fireplace and double doors to the garden, a dining room, sitting room and cloakroom.

    A recent extension has created a stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room with hand-painted units, beamed ceiling, a wood burner and double doors to the rear.

    There is a useful utility room with door to the garden and the ground floor is completed by a versatile study/bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

    A cellar with storeroom is accessed via stairs in the reception hall.

    The first floor features a bright and spacious landing, with five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC.

    Above the kitchen/family room, the extension has created a superb master suite with a spacious fitted dressing room, a superb en-suite bathroom and a beautiful dual-aspect bedroom. Intriguingly, there is also eaves access through to a secret room.

    The property has a substantial two-storey detached barn of over 2,600 sq ft, with a large area doe garaging and useful secondary accommodation. This comprises a kitchen/breakfast room and shower room on the ground floor, and a large sitting/family room on the first floor, along with a bedroom and a storeroom.

    There are delightful established landscaped gardens, including a charming Wendy house built in a similar style to the main house.

    The excellent leisure facilities include a swimming pool and hard tennis court.

    There is ample private parking and the grounds amount to around 1.85 acres.
