SITUATION Wildernesse Avenue is considered to be one of the premier private roads in Sevenoaks. It lies within the prestigious Wildernesse Estate, about 1.5 miles to the North-East of the town centre and about 2 miles from the mainline station. Badgers Wood is set well back from the road in a very well screened plot with a long private driveway. The attractive Avenue is lined with Lime trees, planted to commemorate Wellington's visit to the estate in 1815 (the year of Waterloo). The Estate has been designated a Conservation Area to protect its sylvan nature, which makes it so unique and popular. Sevenoaks offers a good range of shopping facilities, cafes, bars and restaurants. It also has a mainline rail station with services to Charing Cross (via London Bridge and Waterloo East) and Cannon Street in about 35 minutes. The area is well supplied with highly-regarded state and private schools including popular choices in Sevenoaks itself such as Walthamstow Hall (independent school for girls), Sevenoaks School (independent co-ed), Sevenoaks, Solefields, Granville and New Beacon preparatory schools and Lady Boswell's primary school. The new Weald of Kent grammar annexe in Sevenoaks is also expected to expand in coming years. There is also St Michaels & Russell House preparatory schools in the neighbouring village of Otford and Radnor House School in Sundridge. There are boys and girls grammar schools in nearby Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. Golf clubs in Sevenoaks include Wildernesse and Knole with Nizels in Hildenborough also nearby. There is a sports and leisure centre in Sevenoaks and a private health/fitness centre at Nizels. Cricket is played at The Vine in Sevenoaks and there is also a thriving rugby club. The M25 is easily accessible, just 3.5 miles to the West, providing access to London, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports as well as the national motorway network. DIRECTIONS From Sevenoaks High Street proceed in a northerly direction, over the cross-roads, and at the end of the line of shops fork right onto Seal Hollow Road.
