SEALED BID DEADLINE 30TH NOVEMBER 2016. FINAL OPEN DAY SATURDAY, 26 NOVEMBER 2016 - 12 NOON TO 2 PM - CALL 01883 653040 TO ARRANGE A VIEWING - A grand Edwardian residence of over 4,000 sq. ft. requiring comprehensive modernisation, standing on a plot of 0.65 of an acre.
Built at a time when Woldingham was rapidly evolving following the introduction of the railway at Marden Park the house is a fine example of Edwardian architecture.
The sturdy brick construction and tile hung elevations are relieved by angular bays under a tiled roof. The impressive accommodation is arranged over three storeys and there is a small cellar off the entrance porch. Typically, the property benefits from high ceilings are generously proportioned rooms. The formal reception rooms and principal bedrooms are characterised by wide bay windows designed to provide interest to the rooms and maximise light. There is also a delightful seating bay window to the formal reception hall.
The house is rich with character and the craftsmanship of the mid Edwardian era is in evidence throughout. Original features include beamed ceilings and cornicing with picture rails below, elegant fireplaces, door furniture and feature inset stained glass panels.
Outside the gardens extend to the western side and rear. Established trees and mature shrubs and hedges ensure privacy from neighbouring properties. After a short stone terrace two pathways descend to a wide central lawn with further steps leading to an old vegetable garden with two green houses. At the very rear a pathway winds amongst the trees and there is a boundary onto Station Road.
To the front there is a gravel drive and an attached garage with storage loft above. There is a further single brick garage built into the front bank with steps leading up to the road.
There is no planning permission in place although the possibility of gaining a consent for a modest dwelling fronting Station Road should be considered subject to planning.
