Built during the 1920s to a very exacting and high quality specification, a character single storey property set within a 6 acre plot. The accommodation is both elegant and versatile whilst many of the original features are still in place including hardwood panelled doors and outstanding fireplaces together with stain glass windows, wonderful oak and patterned quarry tiled floors and curved glass casement bay windows. There is a broad pillared portico providing shelter adjacent to the impressive double opening front doors which have the original stained glass panels and open into the lobby with a cloakroom and WC to one side. A door then leads into the reception hallway which is an exceptional feature of the property. This is a magnificently proportioned room with vaulted ceiling and glazed skylight together with imposing fireplace fitted with wood burning stove. The sittng room also has an exquisite fireplace and a panoramic bay window which takes full advantage of the long views across the gardens and to Boxhill beyond. There is a separate dining room with the original fireplace and windows providing a view across the gardens. The kitchen breakfast room has a dual aspect and is extensively fitted with a range of light wood units. A door leads to a laundry room, a workshop and storage. There are five bedrooms, two of which have ensuite facilities and a family bathroom. The large attached garage has an electric up and over door.
The property is located within a mile of Dorking High Street with its comprehensive range of facilities including; Waitrose Sainsburys and Lidl Supermarkets; a wide selection of specialist shops, cafes and restuarants; Sports centre and arts venue at Dorking Halls; numerous well regarded schools incuding St Pauls, The Ashcombe and The Priory. The mainline railway station offers services to London (Victoria and Waterloo). There are good road communications to London and the south coast, the M25 motorway ( junction 9) is within 5 miles. The general area is famous for its outstanding countryside, (much of which is under National Trust ownership).
The gardens and grounds are an outstanding feature of the property and extend to around 6 acres of rolling lawns and light woodland. Within the woodland there are some Spainish Chestnut trees that are believed to have been planted to commemorate the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Directly to the rear of the property there is a broad paved terrace and formal lawn which offers a perfect place to sit and enjoy the stunning views. There is an extensive range of outbuildings including worshop, timber outbuildings and range of kennels and enclosed dog runs which offer the potential for a variety of uses.
