A picturesque Grade II listed former gamekeeper's cottage that boasts stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
Situated on the North Downs midway between the villages of Merstham and Chaldon Cold Blow Cottage enjoys a semi-rural environment, stunning views over the surrounding countryside and pretty cottage gardens all within approximately 2 miles of Merstham village high street, with its art gallery, pubs, selection of shops and main line station to London Bridge/London Victoria (which is now in the Oyster Card zone). For a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities the town centre of Redhill offers a diverse selection of shops, boutiques, coffee shops and eateries in addition to the main Belfry shopping centre that also has an M&S department store. Redhill is also home to the Harlequin theatre and cinema and recreational facilities at Donyngs sports centre and swimming pool. There is also a Waitrose at Caterham.
Connections are excellent with Junction 8 of the M25 4 miles to the south west and the M23 1.4 miles to the west giving access to the national motorway network, the international airports of Gatwick and Heathrow and the South Coast.
Sporting activities in the area include racing at Lingfield and Epsom (home of the Derby). Golf at Surrey National Golf Club in Chaldon, Bletchingley, Copthorne and Chartham Park. Cricket at Merstham Cricket Club. Tennis at Redhill Tennis Club and Chipstead. Rugby at Caterham and gliding at Kenley.
The local area is also renowned for its pretty Surrey countryside and offers extensive access to miles of riding, walking and cycling. The surrounding area also boasts a number of good schools, for all ages, including Dunottar, Reigate Grammar, Woldingham Girls and Caterham School to name but a few. The Hawthorns Prep school for ages 2 to 13 is located 3 miles away in the village of Bletchingley.
This picturesque Grade II listed former gamekeeper's cottage dates, we believe, from the 16th Century with later additions. As you would expect of a property of this age it offers the best of both worlds with many fine period features combined with all the conveniences of a modern house. Arranged over two floors Cold Blow Cottage offers flexible accommodation. Downstairs it consists of an entrance hall, a large triple aspect drawing room with inglenook fireplace, sitting/dining room with another inglenook fireplace and stove, kitchen, breakfast room and downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, 2 further bedrooms and a family shower room.
Outside the cottage is surrounded on three sides by beautifully landscaped gardens of approximately 0.75 acres that offer stunning views out over the surrounding fields beyond. A terrace wraps along the rear and side of the house and is accessed from not only the drawing room but the sitting room and kitchen as well making it the perfect place for al fresco dining/entertaining in the summer months. From the terrace steps lead up and across an expanse of open lawn to a large garden shed. To the east of the house lies an unfinished detached garage block of substantial size that once finished will provide parking for two cars with the bonus of a room above.
Acreage: 0.75 Acres
