Description

This bright four-bedroom, end-of-terrace ‘Span’ house, with private garden, is situated on the Punch Croft estate in the renowned village of New Ash Green in Kent. Built to a design by Eric Lyons in 1968, it is a great example of a type ‘K’ house, with almost 1,250 sq ft of internal space.

Entered through a porch, the original part of the house is composed of a large open-plan kitchen and dining room connected to a generous sitting room through an original sliding door. Much of this space has a wonderful reclaimed oak-parquet running underfoot. The extension houses a second living space which is lit through expanses of glazing on two sides and with a lovely cork floor. It has direct access to the private garden via floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. Downstairs, there is also a coat and utility cupboard and guest WC.

On the upper level there are four bedrooms, with one currently used as a study, and a good-sized family bathroom. Exposed brick walls and timber clad ceilings in two of the rooms, provide each with a sense of characterful texture. The second largest of the bedrooms is located above the extension and has a sun-yellow floor and a fantastically high vaulted ceiling with exposed truss beams. The second bedroom has a pull-out bed discretely hidden behind a curtain.

As is usual of Span’s developments, large windows flood each space with light whilst granting views over the carefully considered communal spaces of the estate.

New Ash Green is a remarkable village in the Kent countryside that was almost entirely built in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is a large village with a range of shops and services (a small supermarket, library and a doctor’s surgery), and extensive green spaces including a beautiful village green, some communal orchards, fields and woodland.

Approximately 50% of the housing stock in the village was built by Span, a company that is widely considered to be the finest developer of the post-war period. Span, who employed the architect Eric Lyons for the majority of their projects, had a strong belief in excellence in their housing design and, just as importantly, the landscaping and environment in which the houses were placed.

Punch Croft is in a particularly quiet and verdant position, a stone’s throw from many good walks and bicycle rides through the Kent countryside. This particular house, not only as a private and beautifully planted garden with a pergola, but also looks onto a communal garden to the front and opens onto another larger shared green space to the rear. Minutes away is The Pavilion, a sports club complete with tennis courts.

New Ash Green is well located for train services into London and for access to the motorway network. Longfield (approximately two miles) is the closest station and runs services to London Victoria in 30 minutes. Ebbsfleet (approximately six miles) runs services to St. Pancras in 18 minutes.

There are a number of grammar schools for which Kent is renowned (Dartford, Gravesend, Wilmington) as well as numerous private schools. New Ash Green itself has a well-regarded primary school. There are also various good pubs and eateries nearby, including gastropub, The Royal Oak. Beyond New Ash Green, further shops and services can be found at Bluewater Shopping Centre (approximately five miles) and Sevenoaks (approximately ten miles).
