*Two Detached Houses* A truly unique opportunity to purchase two side by side detached houses currently linked together by the existing owners, just 550 metres from Elmstead Woods Station.

When the owners (Lucas & Christine) first moved in to Bonar Place 23 years ago, they were a young family expecting their first child - attracted by leafy Chislehurst and the quick links into the city.

‘Bonar Place is such a peaceful close, we never had to worry about the kids and you always know that the neighbours will look out for you.’

11 years after moving in, the opportunity arose to purchase the house next door, which came just at the right time, having the desire for more space but not to relocate.

Lucas has always been a keen gardener, so buying next door also gave the family the potential to create a real exhibition garden of the two already lengthy plots (approx. 160ft long).

Lucas & Christine spent circa £170,000 remodelling the gardens with the help of a garden architect to create the spectacular space you see today - which the pictures or plans simply cannot do justice.

The stone patio stretching across both houses is almost 100ft wide, while the raised part of the garden hosts three staggered veg planters on one side (each with their own water supply) and green space on the other – shaded by a gorgeous mature oak holding a homemade swing.

For the accommodation, by adding a neat link extension in 2017, the two houses effectively became an East & West wing, hosting a larger home office, art studio & giving the then teenage children more personal space.

Fast forward to now and the children have flown the nest - so a move home to Austria beckons.

Considering the effort the family had put in to making this such a practical single residence over 23 years, when Lucas & Christine approached me to sell, we mutually agreed it would be remiss to split the two houses immediately without having initially tested the market as one.

Logically 2 plots are worth more than 1, however to the right buyer we’re conscious, that may not be the case – especially if planning can be achieved to do something out of this world.

The houses are still both on separate titles (with separate utilities) so offer maximum flexibility to new owners - with immeasurable potential. Other houses on the street have done big side extensions so have arguably set a precedent for modern twists of the early 70s shell.

Should you wish to keep it as it is, Lucas & Christine have added some fantastic personal touches over time which I’m sure many others will also value.

The European inspiration is clear with a sauna/spa area to relax after work, modernised bathrooms (both with Villeroy & Boch / Hansgrohe sanitaryware), a wood burning stove in the reception room, a dedicated bicycle store at the front, fully rewiring (in 2008) with adjustable lighting plus adding solar panels to the roof.

Having 2 garages and 2 driveways has also been extremely helpful, especially now that the kids are grown up and each driving. The lofts are both boarded & insulated.
To top it off, you’ll struggle to find a home with a better ‘full-service history’ (with numerous certificates & manuals) or more considerate previous owners.

Please do indicate your interest soonest if possible, as it’s very much an exclusive opportunity while plans are in place to split the houses and sell them individually.
