***Guide Price £900,000 - £1,000,000***A unique opportunity to purchase the first property built at Holtwood Aylesford, dating back to 1938. 'Rhoden House' is a veritable 'tour de force' of Tudor revival architectural design, originally owned by the builders of Holtwood, Mr Billings. No doubt used as a catalogue to show off style techniques available on other homes being built on the site. This 80 year old home has had only 3 owners. Located in a commanding position on top of Holt Hill, with lovely views to the South and West. Set in a well established 1/3 of an acre plot flanked by mature specimen trees including Japonica and Holm Oaks. Whilst the property has a beautiful exterior from the moment the threshold is crossed, the nostalgic design features pervade from Oak panelling and doors with 'thumb latches' to leaded light windows with heraldic shields. This property demands to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The rooms classically peel from the reception hall and spacious landing on the first floor and are well proportioned with gas central heating, arranged on two floors and in addition a wine cellar, extending in all to 2300sq'. Externally the property features ragstone, exposed beams, herringbone brickwork, corbelled first floor, eyebrow windows, decorative chimneys, steeply pitched peg tiled roof and an imposing entrance hall. Rhoden House is a stunning 'forever home' bursting with character features. Call us to make an appointment to view.
