While enjoying access to the M25 is at either junction 17 or 18, with connections to the airports and motorway network, the property itself is both quiet and extremely private due to its setting and screening.

Description

This charming Victorian period house is thought to date from around 1900. The current owners carried out an extensive program of improvements between 2012 and 2014 to create a charming, luxurious and contemporary family home of character, ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. The renovations included a complete new roof and insulation, double glazed windows, kitchen and bathrooms, boiler, Megaflo and rewiring (including Ethernet cabling throughout with fibre optic internet access up to 200Mbps).

On entering the property there is an entrance vestibule/cloakroom with built in seating, shoe storage and hanging space. This opens to the large 'L' shape open plan living/family room, with a fine double aspect, high ceilings, a sleek, modern glass fronted gas fire and part glazed double doors to the study and dining room.

The study is well appointed containing both a built in oak desk and open fronted units. The dining room is an extremely spacious room with a light southerly triple aspect with lantern roof and two sets of double doors open to the garden. A superb space for entertaining, there is ample room for both sitting and relaxing as well as formal dining. The dining room flows through into the stunning bespoke kitchen/breakfast room by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, comprised of white composite work surfaces and large breakfast bar with a comprehensive range of high gloss base and wall units, incorporating SMEG Range, AEG Fridge
Freezer, AEG Dishwasher, Insinkerator Waste Disposer, Abode Ceramic Sink and separate Wine Cooler.

From the living room, "secret panelled" bookcase doors lead to
bedrooms two and three. Both of these double bedrooms are beautifully light, have high ceilings and bay windows overlooking the garden. The larger of the two has an en suite contemporary bathroom with Grohe fittings. Further potential exists to expand the current accommodation into the extensive loft space subject to the usual planning consents.

An inner hallway leads to the impressive master bedroom, with two Velux windows, containing a large built in recessed wardrobe with drawer and hanging space. A door opens to the high quality en suite bath/shower room with Grohe fittings, underfloor heating, large floating sink unit, built in cupboard, bath and extra-large rain shower.

From the inner hall is a fully fitted utility/laundry room with extensive built in floor to ceiling cupboards, sink, secondary full size Bosch fridge freezer and a rear stable door to the garden via a covered porch where wisteria, passion flower and roses are trained along the oak framework.

Outside - The property is approached through electric double gates to a tarmac driveway, passing a colourful and deep alpine flowerbed which opens to a gravelled area providing ample parking space for several vehicles and a double garage with additional loft space. The gravelled area is bordered by raised beds containing trained wisteria, jasmine and an olive tree. The property is well screened to the front and side boundary by tall hedging that provides excellent sound proofing and complete privacy for the property.

The property is centrally situated on the plot, is not overlooked, and has continuous well cared for gardens surrounding the house, which are a haven for a wide variety of birds. The current owners have beautifully landscaped and planted the garden with a wealth of plants and shrubs that provide an abundance of colour and interest from March to November. To the rear of the house is the south facing aspect of the garden, which has been planned to resemble a walled garden with crab apple, nectarine and apple trees, clematis, winter jasmine and well stocked flowerbeds as well as a wildlife pond. The west facing garden area has a deep herbaceous bed bordering the large lawn area, as well as several small fruit trees, including quince, greengage, plum and mulberry. The front garden is divided into formal lawn and a contained area of wild flower meadow surrounding a beautiful and mature magnolia tree.
Finally, there is a period outbuilding blending into the garden which was re-roofed and converted in 2015 to an art studio with separate electric circuit sufficient to support a pottery kiln or heavy duty woodworking equipment.

Square Footage: 1,861 sq ft
Acreage: 0.25 Acres
