Substantial village houses are seldom available and Well Farm enjoys remarkable privacy whilst being at the very heart of Banstead Village. This location is within a short walk of a choice of excellent schools; Greenacre, St Anne's, Banstead First and Middle and The Priory Prep and the adjacent Old Barn pre-school Nursery. There are several other schools in the area. The High Street offers diverse shopping as well as Waitrose Supermarket and M&S Simply Food and the village has numerous cafes, a variety of restaurants, the Woolpack pub and the nearby Mint gastro-pub. There are rail services at Banstead and nearby Chipstead stations and faster services from Sutton or Epsom and the A217 provides arterial road access to London and to the M25 at Reigate (Junction9). The A3 at Tolworth is also easily reached. This part of the Surrey Downs has much to offer for sport, leisure and cultural pursuits with theatre and cinema at Reigate, Epsom and Sutton, several local gyms, golf courses and sports clubs and the open spaces of nearby Banstead Downs, Banstead Woods, Park Downs and Epsom Downs offer great walks and cycling, the latter being home to the famous Derby Races. The Lady Neville Park nearby is also home to Banstead Cricket Club.

A magnificent period detached house originally comprising a medieval Yeomans farmhouse with later Georgian facade, set in private, leafy gardens. The house, complete with its several historic alterations, is preserved in excellent order. As you step through the front door of the elegant Georgian facade, you enter a remarkably light and spacious interior that has provided a well appointed and practical family home.

There are several living rooms, each with a distinct character and purpose and the large kitchen features an Aga stove and ample space for a central table, ideal for family dining. The five bedrooms are all of good size and unusually there are three bathrooms, including one ensuite to the impressive principle bedroom which itself features a heavily beamed and vaulted ceiling and Jacobean panelling. The oak staircase is beautifully worn and there are magnificent oak timbers throughout, many bearing the signs of an earlier use, maybe within ships or barns. There are also several fireplaces of various periods, some having been reclaimed from other period origins.

The gardens are a delight, encompassing the house and consisting of lawns and beds of long-established shrubs and trees. There is a sunken ornamental paved garden with pond, an ancient Well, and to the rear a nature garden creates a secluded idyll. The gardens have a broad, walled frontage and to one side a gate leads to a parking area in front of a detached double garage. Well maintained throughout, the house has changed little in recent decades and offers a unique opportunity for new owners to refurbish and update some elements of this beautiful home.
