The Story

OLD OR NEW
The owners fell in love with the six-bedroom, character house,
which was built more than a century ago and initially they had no
intention of taking it down or building a new home on the site.
They loved the quaint old house with all its quirks, nooks and
crannies and therefore decided to completely refurbish the existing
house, giving it a new roof, installing a new kitchen with under floor
heating, bathrooms, and decorating throughout.
However because the plot is so unique and would really suit a large
dream home they secured planning permission to build a new
detached, seven-bedroom residence offering 6,175 sq ft of
accommodation with a triple garage and cinema/gym. Any buyer
would be able to proceed with this immediately if they wished.
The house is in the green-belt and it is very hard to be granted
permission to build here. This is a great opportunity for anyone
keen to build something new and planning is specifically permitting
the old property to be demolished after the new house have been
built
The new home owner can take complete control over the interior
design and specify the finishing touches to the property, not to
mention take advantage of lower stamp duty by buying and building
a new house, no CIL payment, VAT can be reclaimed on a self build
and the planning allows the buyer to live in the existing house until
completion of the new Godstone House.
TOTALLY REFURBISHED
Godstone House offers accommodation arranged over three
floors and in carrying out the refurbishments, the owners have
carefully combined its characterful charm with contemporary-style
living.
The refitted kitchen, dining and family room, is the focal point of the
house and where the family tend to spend most of their time.
“We enjoy most of our time in the kitchen with its beautiful view of
the garden and field” the owner says. “We made it an open plan
kitchen, so we can all spend time together, cooking, baking or with
the children doing their homework or reading.”
The kitchen has a contemporary style, and whole of the hallway,
kitchen, family and dining area have under floor heating to make it
really cosy and welcoming with a large dining table and sofa.
The downstairs guest toilet/ shower, has direct access to the back
garden, which is perfect to avoid wet wellies in the main house.
LEGO ROOM
On the first floor, there are six bedrooms, two with en suite,
including the master bedroom, and a family bathroom.
“The stunning view from the master bedroom never fails to amaze
the owners who often see a family of Deer roam freely at the back
of the field, which offers an amazingly tranquil contrast to Urban
life”
Because of low-slung beams on the second floor, the owners have
utilised the space by creating a playroom. “It`s named the Lego
room because it is literally full of Lego bricks. The children love to
play up there without having to tidy up in between building different
sets.
“From the window you can see the stunning views across the fields
beyond.”
There is the added benefit of the outside building which was
previously an office, but which the owners are using as a private
gym, however the possibilities for the new owners to utilise it for
their own hobbies is endless.
OASIS OF PRIVACY
The owners enjoy their privacy behind the wall and have refurbished
the gates to include black metal sheeting so even the drive way is
shielded from view. “We do not need blinds on the ground floor
windows, except for preventing the sun from getting in, it is that
secluded”.

Setting The Scene

There is plenty of room for children to run free in the extensive
gardens at Godstone House.
“There is a fantastic wildlife to be seen in the grounds, which always
excites the children, from the family of Deer that come to graze in
the field, to the rabbits, hedgehogs and amazing variety of various
birds”
For easy maintenance, the garden has been laid to lawn and is
securely fenced providing a safe haven for the youngsters to roam
freely and play outside in all weather. There is plenty of scope for the
new owners to install outdoor play equipment, the kids love riding
their Go Carts up and down the field. To the front of the house, a
high wall shelters the property from the road and runs the whole
width of the grounds. Access is via electric gates leading to an
extensive parking area, with can comfortably accommodate 12 cars.
The house itself sits to the front of the grounds and there is scope
to further enhance the gardens with planting.

House was the brilliant choice of schools”
