Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Positioned along a quiet country lane set within the conservation area of Cobham Village. A rare opportunity has arisen to secure one of the last landmark properties requiring renovation. Occupying a plot approaching one acre, the grounds require attention but are well stocked with an excellent array of specimen trees and plants. The house belies its 19th century façade and dates from much earlier times and offers a host of character features. Arranged over four floors including practical cellarage there are two spacious reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and scullery. To the first floor are four well-proportioned bedrooms and family bathroom, and two further bedrooms to the second floor. The long driveway to the side offers ample parking and leads to the far end of the property where you will find a double storey brick former stable block and a garage which, subject to necessary planning consent, would offer excellent annexe accommodation or workshop/studio.
