Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Church Lane House was built in 2007 and is a beautiful family home of exceptional quality that sits in a wonderfully tranquil village setting. The house was designed and built with great attention to detail and with a view towards the practicalities of modern day family living, a fact which is apparent throughout the house. The beautifully light and airy living spaces on the ground floor also have a certain degree of versatility to the way in which they can be used, depending upon the needs of the incoming buyer but are without exception, superbly presented and very comfortably proportioned.

At the front, an attractive covered entrance porch leads into an entrance lobby and from there, into the main reception hall which immediately creates a feeling of space that runs through the house as a whole. On the front of the house, the drawing room is an extremely attractive and very comfortable main living room for the house with a substantial inglenook style minster stone fireplace that creates a wonderful focal point. A lovely rich solid wood floor gives warmth while a bay window looks out over the front garden. On the other side of the hallway there is a large study with a fitted bookcase and the same beautiful wooden floor and outlook across the front garden. Running across the larger part of the back of the house, is the lovely kitchen/dining room which very much feels like the heart of the house and makes a superb informal day to day living space, particularly as it leads out onto the beautiful rear garden. The kitchen has recently been completely refitted to an exceptional standard with a whole range of hand painted units along with stone worksurfaces. Integrated appliances include a stainless steel 5 burner, two oven range, a wine cooler, a double stainless steel oven, dishwasher, a fitted microwave and a substantial stainless steel fridge freezer. A central island unit gives an excellent breakfast bar area while the whole overlooks the fabulous rear garden giving it a beautiful outlook. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a large dining area with a lovely deep bay which makes a wonderful spot for entertaining and which has double opening doors that lead out onto the terrace at the back of the house. Off the kitchen and also on the back of the house there is a very cosy snug, again with a wood floor as well as a central log burner and double doors that lead out onto a very pretty loggia. Off the inner hallway beside the snug there is also a home office with the same wood floor and a whole range of fitted furniture. On the other side of the kitchen/dining room there is a large utility room with a range of cupboards and a personal door into the double garage. There is a further boot room with a Belfast sink and a back door to the part covered rear courtyard.

From the kitchen, a wide turning staircase leads to a very large, airy and extremely versatile first floor games / media room.

Upstairs the first floor landing is similarly light and airy and continues in the same beautifully proportioned vein. The master bedroom suite overlooks the front of the house and is a very comfortable double bedroom with a bank of fitted wardrobes. Adjacent to this is an en-suite dressing room, again fully fitted, while from here there is also a door into a beautiful en-suite bathroom complete with bath, shower and twin sinks. Across the landing, the second bedroom also has a range of fitted wardrobes and its own en-suite shower room while the third bedroom also has a full en-suite bathroom. On the top floor, there are two further double bedrooms, both with their own fitted wardrobes and their own en-suite facilities which make excellent guest/au-pair accommodation, according to need.
Garden & Exterior
The property and double garage is approached at the front by way of a sweeping carriage driveway which allows for the parking of numerous cars, while off to one side, is an additional oak car barn. The house sits behind a mature beech hedge which affords it a certain degree of privacy, a fact which adds to the overall pleasure of the setting as a whole. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped with a large Indian sandstone terrace across the back of the house which takes advantage of its southerly aspect and makes a wonderful spot for eating outside. Throughout the garden, there are a variety of beautifully planted and tended flower and shrub beds while the whole is extremely well enclosed by mature trees and hedges giving it a wonderful feeling of seclusion and privacy. There is a solid oak gazebo with a built in barbecue which likewise makes a hugely attractive area for eating outside. To one side of the house, there are two timber built garden sheds as well as a greenhouse while to the other side, there is a log storage shed. There are various power points throughout the garden, on the veranda and in the gazebo. The garden as a whole is undoubtedly a beautiful part of the property and contributes to what makes this such a special home.
Location
Church Lane House is in a wonderful semi rural setting with open countryside just a short walk away and in the other direction a number of local facilities including a pub, butcher, baker, post office and Sainsburys local. A short drive will take you into the villages of Knaphill and Chobham, the latter with an eclectic array of interesting pubs and restaurants. For those times when you require something more comprehensive, Woking town centre is within easy reach of the house and has been the subject of enormous investment in recent years which has given it a busy and contemporary feel with restaurants, bars and cafes as well as the New Victoria theatre and multi screen cinema in the Peacocks shopping centre. For the commuter, Woking has what is widely regarded as one of the best stations in the south east and runs a very fast and frequent service into Waterloo and also has a very efficient coach service to Heathrow airport. Slightly closer to the house, there is also the option of commuting from Brookwood station. A short drive will also take you into the beautiful county town of Guildford with its historic cobbled high street lined with period buildings that house a wide variety of shops while in the surrounding area generally, there are wide open spaces of open countryside that make for excellent walking and cycling opportunities. There are numerous schooling options in both the private and the state sector within easy reach of the house as well as a collection of superb golf courses. The M3 is close at hand which connects with the M25 for access to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports. All in all, this is almost the perfect setting to take advantage of both the surrounding towns and countryside.
