£975,000
This is a smart 1920s detached property set in a semi-rural location near Dartford. Set on the side of a hill and with stunning views, the rear garden backs onto a nature reserve.

For those exercise addicts, this property comes with a gym, but the room could easily serve as a study for the less active buyer.
