Biggens is a character four bedroom period house, sympathetically updated by the current owners to provide a comfortable home in a stunning established garden setting. Biggens is thought to be one of the oldest houses in Dockenfield and has been officially dated circa 1600-1625, with later additions. Oak beams, brick flooring in the snug and original fireplaces provide warmth and character. A stunning vaulted barn-style kitchen dining room is at the heart of the house with views of the garden through oak framed full height glass panels, and doors to the terrace. The bespoke, hand-built kitchen includes a gas fired AGA, travertine flooring, granite work surfaces, and a range of integrated appliances including a fridge freezer, dishwasher and an induction hob. The family room/snug has an original inglenook fireplace and the more formal sitting room is focused around an open fire. Upstairs the main bedroom is a very light and spacious dual aspect room with vaulted ceiling and has its’ own en suite bathroom. A charming bedroom in the oldest part of the house has a potential walk in wardrobe, with a further two good sized bedrooms in the newer part of the house. One of the newer bedrooms has potential for an en suite shower room with plumbing already in place. This is a special family home, carefully updated by the owners whilst retaining the character and charm. EPC Rating TBA.
A particularly secluded garden surrounds Biggens which is approached by a five bar wooden gate and bordered by mature trees and hedging. The garden features well-stocked, established borders with a variety of planting to provide year-round interest. The garden is perfect for those wanting to grow produce with a fruit and vegetable cage with raised beds. An orchard/wild garden set behind the main garden features a selection of fruit and mature specimen trees. There is covered parking with adjacent workshop, and parking and turning for several cars.
