This represents a unique opportunity to purchase one of the most substantial and elegant of the original Victorian houses situated within the private Dormans Park. The property has been subject to an extensive programme of improvements, creating both a tasteful and contemporary interior, which compliment this character home. Features typical of the period include open fireplaces, high ceiling heights and well proportioned accommodation with large window space.

Outside, the property is approached by 2 sets of electronically operated gates, where a gravel driveway serves the double garage and main entrance to the house. To the rear, a raised deck with glazed balustrading is ideal for summer entertaining and takes full advantage of the extensive views. The mature grounds extend to about 0.8 of an acre and enjoy a southerly aspect. 

Situated on the West Sussex/Surrey borders, the origins of Dormans Park date back to the 1800s. It originally comprised of over 200 acres of farmland and woodland. Following the arrival of the railway, with London just 28 miles away, it became a peaceful environment in which to live. Today, it offers an interesting variety of houses, both old and new, in tranquil surroundings.

The property is within about 2.5 miles from the old market town of East Grinstead with its wide selection of shops, stores and supermarkets. Dormansland village is about 1 mile with village amenities and pretty church, whilst Lingfield is about 2½ miles with local shops and the renowned Lingfield Park Racecourse. There is a good choice of schools, in both the state and independent sector. For commuters, Dormans Station is just under 1 mile away. The station provides a service to Croydon and London (about 50 minutes). For national travel by road, junction 6 of the M25 (Godstone) is about 10 miles away. For the international traveller, Gatwick airport is about 9 miles distant.
