Willington Manor, West Kingsdown, Sevenoaks
Willington Manor is an imposing country property close to Sevenoaks, situated in a prestigious gated estate with park-like grounds. The property was built in an Edwardian style in 1999 and finished to a high standard and specification.
Approached by a tree-lined private road, the property benefits from a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The well-proportioned accommodation, with high ceilings throughout, has been well maintained by the current owners. The stunning, established gardens are a particular feature of the property and in total amount to about 2.5 acres.
Double entrance doors lead to an impressive reception hall with oak flooring, and an imperial staircase with octagonal gallery above. The triple aspect drawing room is a light and well-proportioned room with high ceilings and views of the gardens. It features a stone fireplace, two deep bay windows and French doors leading to the terrace. Further reception rooms include the sitting room, with a deep bay window and views to the front of the property, a dining room with garden views and access to a walk-in wine store, and a study/snug which also has garden views.
The stylish kitchen/breakfast room has integral appliances and a breakfast area incorporating a bar-level table for informal dining. Adjoining the kitchen/ breakfast room is an octagonal garden room with vaulted conical ceiling and French doors leading to the terrace. There is also a utility/boot room with side access to the garden, as well as a cloakroom, storage and coat cupboard completing the ground floor.
Upstairs, the spacious principal suite comprises a double aspect bedroom with views towards the London skyline, a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a stylishly appointed en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and a beautiful free-standing feature bath.
Arranged over the remainder of the first floor are four further bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have en suite facilities while the fourth has a walk-in dressing room and plumbing in place for an en suite shower room.
To the second floor there is a superb suite of rooms comprising a hobby/games room, a double aspect bedroom and en suite bathroom. There is access to generous loft storage spaces from both rooms. Together, the rooms would make an excellent guest suite.
Willington Manor is approached by an electrically operated five bar gate and brick paved drive flanked on either side by manicured lawns interspersed with mature beds and framed with attractive park railings. The driveway culminates in a circular area providing parking for several cars, which leads to the detached triple garage to one side.
The established and secluded south-facing gardens have been extensively landscaped, incorporating a stone terrace spanning the width of the property and extending round to one side, perfect for al fresco entertaining. From the terrace, a large expanse of lawn leads to curved flower and shrub beds including mature rhododendron. Sleeper steps lead up to a further level lawn which is interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. An additional area of land is immediately to the rear of the garden boundary and combined with the gardens, the total acreage is approaching 2.5 acres.
The property is within an impressive 17-acre park-like estate approached via a tree-lined private road and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just seven miles from Sevenoaks.
David Johnston of Savills Sevenoaks says: “This imposing country home is in a brilliant semi-rural location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet just seven miles from Sevenoaks and with views of the London skyline. Its excellently proportioned accommodation is complemented by the exceptional gardens and grounds, which are a real feature of the property.”
