A unique and rare opportunity to acquire a walled nursery garden in a private and glorious greenbelt location. Enclosed within the walled nursery, is a large single storey bothy cottage.

The Bothy and walling are thought to be about 100 years old and part of the Weardale Estate. Weardale Manor fell into disrepair in the late 1930's and no longer exists. More recently, the nursery was in private ownership and operated as a productive retail garden centre, although the business closed some years ago. The buildings now require complete refurbishment therefore French Street Nursery presents buyers with a blank canvass. Purchasers are advised to take planning advice with regard to their own specific requirements.

The enclosed nursery extends to 1.9 acres. Beyond the walled garden there is a further 1.4 acres, which includes the driveway and an area of woodland. 3.3 ACRES IN ALL.

The name of French Street appears to derive from when the locality was under the ownership of John le Frenche, in the 13th century. Illustrious former residents of the area include the 16th century religious reformer, John Frith, Major General James Wolfe and, of course, Sir Winston Churchill who chose the nearby Chartwell as his long term family home.

There is a right of way for the bungalow over the entrance driveway, which is outside the walled nursery.

LOCATION
The property is situated in a secluded position on the outskirts of the highly sought-after area of Westerham, adjacent to acres of National Trust woodland, providing delightful walks. A long track leads across a farmland estate to the private entrance of both the Nursery and the Bungalow. The historic village with its shops, restaurants and church is surprisingly only 1.5 miles away.

The property is also conveniently located for the M25 (junctions 5 and 6), providing links to the national motorway network, London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent coast. Sevenoaks station is 6.5 miles to the east providing mainline links to London Bridge, London Waterloo East, London Charing Cross and London Cannon Street. Sevenoaks High Street is a further 0.6 of a mile with a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and commercial facilities. Oxted is 5 miles to the west with a mainline station to London Victoria, as well as cinema and leisure centre.
