It is extremely rare to find homes of such character and charm in the local area but 'Trinity Cottage' is a Grade II listed building understood to date back to the 17th Century and situated in the heart of St Pauls Cray Village. Just a stones' throw from the River Cray and surrounding countryside, this end of terrace house is a fine example of the period and retains many of its original features from the era plus some modern touches. Once inside you are immediately struck by the wealth of exposed timbers and beams in both the walls and ceilings and the oak flooring which can be found throughout much of the property.
The living room is partially carpeted and has a stunning brick feature fireplace with log burning stove and study area to one side. This leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which has a country style to it including a tiled floor and wood block work surfaces. There is a breakfast bar and built-in appliances including a gas hob, oven, washing machine and slimline dishwasher. A solid wood door opens from the living room to provide access down two steps to a separate dining room which could also double as a third bedroom. The well-appointed bathroom can also be found on the ground floor level and comprises a panel bath with separately plumbed shower over, WC with concealed cistern and vanity unit with round stone effect wash hand basin with mixer tap. There is also a chrome heated towel rail and tiled floor.
A door from the entrance hall opens to give access to stairs leading to the first floor landing, off of which you will find two double bedrooms. The master bedroom is a pure delight with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, exposed timbers and floor boards plus an open fireplace with slate hearth. You will even find a walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom two contains a built-in double bed and has carpet plus a fitted wardrobe.
Outside, there is a driveway to the side which is just large enough to accommodate a small car and there is a courtyard style garden to the side (access from the kitchen or side gate) continuing to the rear garden which has an area of lawn with shingle patio.
Chapmans Lane is a quiet no-through road on the edge of the countryside equidistant to both Orpington and Sidcup towns with closest station at St. Mary Cray (direct service to London Victoria/Blackfriars) just 0.8 miles away.
