Description

Oak Cottage is one of 14 houses situated in the rural hamlet of Kevington (also known as Kevingtown) within the borough of Bromley. It is surrounded by farmland, open fields, woodland and old cottages, yet only a short commute into London from either Orpington to London Bridge (26 mins) or St Mary Cray to Victoria (27 mins) or Blackfriars (37 mins).

The name is Kevington is thought to have come from the Celtic word cefn, meaning ‘ridge’, i.e. The ridge people.
The house is an oak framed ‘Wealden Hall House’, it is Grade II listed, infilled with brick, wattle and daub, and topped off with a beautiful Kentish peg tile roof.The building dates from the 16th Century, with the later addition of the huge chimney stack added probably in the 17th Century. The property is a wealth of character and charm, Inglenook fireplace, oak beams throughout and original pine floor boards. The bespoke kitchen was created from antique pine, complete with butler sink and bare brick, and the property has maintained the integratory and history throughout, even leaving the smoke stained brickwork from the ‘copper’.

The vendors state it has been a joy to live there these past 15 years and they feel privileged to be a small part of it’s history. Now is the time for someone else to enjoy and make wonderful memories so book your viewings today.
