6 bedroom detached house for saleOttershaw, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16
Sold STC £1,995,000
Rarely do opportunities arise to acquire such a property as Dunford House. In fact, the current owners purchased this almost 40 years ago and it has been a great family home since.
The property enjoys 5 acres of beautifully kept parklike grounds on the cusp of Horsell Common and Ottershaw, just over two miles of Woking town centre which is linked by frequent fast trains to London Waterloo.
Approached via automatic gates, the distinctive welcoming rear courtyard and elevations set the tone of this truly charming property. You immediately get the feeling of space - with a superb garden and wide far-reaching grounds set against a wooded back-drop. In addition to the tennis court and heated outdoor swimming pool, a particular feature and pleasing to the eye is the River Bourne winding its way through the West flank of the grounds. Two bridges allow access from the main garden to the adjoining grass paddocks.
Accommodation over 4300sqft currently includes staff accommodation. True to the age of its construction the property offers features you would expect such as the grand entrance hallway with open fireplace, splendid reception rooms with high ceilings and very well proportioned bedrooms accessible via two independent staircases. Special features downstairs include the 26'5ft triple aspect drawing room with feature fireplace and striking bay window with panoramic garden views. Along with the formal dining room with decorative Victorian wall panelling and fireplace. The sociable open plan kitchen/breakfast room with Aga overlooks the front courtyard and further double doors flow out to the gardens at the rear.
Upstairs the master bedroom incorporates a dressing room and en suite. Two further bathrooms service the five remaining well-proportioned bedrooms. The former Coach House and stable block was linked to the house by the previous owners and can be used for staff or guest accommodation.
Further benefits include a large integral garage, additional car port and substantial parking space.
The property is ideally located on the edge of Horsell and Ottershaw within a short drive of a range of local shops, pubs and restaurants and just over 2 miles from Woking town centre. Within a short walk Horsell Common offers hundreds of acres of walks and bridle paths with easy access to the M25 via Ottershaw and M3 via Chobham.
There are also a number of highly regarded state and private schools at primary and secondary levels within easy reach..
