Location    Eynsford is a picturesque village in the Sevenoaks district of Kent and is located in the historic Darent Valley. It is famous for the ancient ford and hump-backed mediaeval bridge which is still very much in use today, St Martins of Tours the 16th century village church, and Eynsford Castle to the north of the village. Eynsford Castle is one of the earliest Norman stonework defences in the country, and the castle and Roman Villa are within easy walking distance of the village centre as is the Lullingstone Country park which provides stunning views over the valley. The nearby Hop farm attracts visitors from all over the world with its beautiful lavender fields and farm shop selling local produce. Eynsford has a number of cosy pubs, restaurants and a tearoom by the ford. Eynsford also boasts an excellent primary school – The Anthony Roper school – which is a ten-minute walk from Whispers.   Eynsford Station has fast links to Victoria and the City, and the village is convenient for the M25, M20 and Ebbsfleet.

Directions    From our Fine & Country Sevenoaks office head East on the high street, at the roundabout take the first exit onto Station road. Continue along Station Road: 4.3 miles. The property can be found on the left hand side via an access road.

Sellers Insight    Beautifully positioned in the highly sought-after picturesque village of Eynsford nestling in an area near to the North Downs of Kent. Whispers is an extremely attractive three / four-bedroom family home that was built in 1999.
“Back in 1957, when I was just thirteen years old, I joined a ramblers club, and one sunny day we took a trip from the hustle and bustle of London to the beautiful Kent countryside. I remember vividly stopping off in this gorgeous little village, with a pretty Ford, some rather enchanting Roman ruins and the most delightful old fashioned sweet shop with wisteria festooned around the door. I didn’t know where exactly I was, but it was a place that captured my imagination, and a place I never forgot,” says the owner. “Fast forward some forty odd years and several moves later with my children grown up and having left home I was hunting for a new property. While driving around the Kent countryside, searching for the perfect location, I once again stumbled across the village, the beauty of which had for all those years been etched on my mind, it was almost exactly as I remembered it. Unfortunately, there were no available properties for sale at the time, but there was a plot of land, tucked away off the main road in a very peaceful spot. I engaged the help of a fantastic architect who helped me with my design and so I built my dream home, the rest as they say, is history.”
“It’s such a pretty house, a real hidden gem someone said recently, and internally it’s spacious and bright, with a really warm and welcoming feel. I love to entertain, so I have a wonderfully large kitchen/diner which also encompasses a large conservatory, I did not want the whole of the living space to be open plan so I chose to have a large sitting room which features a very attractive inglenook. The bedrooms are well proportioned so it’s comfortable when friends and family come to stay. There is a further room which I currently use as a study, but could definitely be used as a fourth bedroom or for a “work from home” room if needed. I was able to put a lot of thought into the design of the house and how I wanted to use it. I have been so pleased with the end result. I think it will be hard to find somewhere else that even compares.
“The walled garden is another delightful feature,” continues the owner. “It is not overlooked and therefore I enjoy total privacy. I decided to use hard landscaping for ease of maintenance, with raised beds and pots filled with pretty plants and flowers which create colour all year round. It is a truly relaxing space and very conducive to alfresco entertaining, which has given me a huge amount of pleasure.
Favourite room: “The living room with the gorgeous inglenook fireplace is probably my favourite. It is a large but cosy-feeling room for the winter months but during the summer the double doors can be opened to bring the sunshine in.
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: “The village is every bit as lovely as I remember it all those years ago. It has won the “Best Kept Village” Gold Award for several years running and the sense of community within the village is wonderful.   There are various clubs and activities if one wishes to use them together with 2 churches, 4 pubs, 3 of which sell delicious meals, some attractive castle ruins, a highly regarded junior school, many country walks and also within easy reach of a couple of golf clubs, a station and motorways but most important the original sweet shop with its pretty wisteria! is still here.
What they will miss most / why they are leaving: “I love this house, and all my friends love it too,” says the owner. “I’ will be very sad to leave, but I’ve decided to move closer to my son and his family. If I could pick up my home and take it with me, I honestly would not hesitate.” Perhaps I may build again !!
