Property Description

Full description

OFFERS INVITED - A gracious 6 Bedroom Family Residence with Billiard Room and Swimming Pool, standing in mature grounds approaching 2 acres close the village centre.

A fine example of late Victorian architecture, 'Kingshaw' was the subject of a commission by Thomas Raffles Davison (1853-1937) one of the leading illustrators and architects of the period who was living in Woldingham until his retirement in 1927.

Built in 1889, today the house comprises over 4,600 sq. ft. of light and spacious accommodation over three floors.  The topography of the surrounding land is such that the upper floor windows enjoy views over surrounding greenbelt to the South and East.

The external elevations are a distinctive blend of tile render and brick with timber.  Leaded windows have been planned to provide maximum light and many of the rooms afford dual aspects onto the gardens, 

The four reception rooms are generous in size and three of them give external access to the gardens. Served by a modern Bultaup designed kitchen, the Dining room has an impressive inglenook with timber surrounds and seating, complimented by wood block flooring typical of the period, The triple aspect drawing room is fitted with window seating to the angular bay and French doors open onto a large stone terrace which captures the southern sun.

Staircase  leads to the first floor  where the spacious landing gives way to five first bedrooms.   A further staircase, off the sewing room, leads to the sixth bedroom.  There are three bathrooms and a shower room on the grounds.  A separate staircase leads to the billiard room which ensures this is completely independent from the main house.

Of particular note is the impressive and voluminous Billiard Room situated on the western wing, with its vaulted timbered ceiling and long windows to the north and south elevations.  The room is being currently used as a studio.  At one end is a fireplace with a log burning stove and the floor is in an attractive pitch pine.

The current residents have enjoyed many years of ownership and have cared for the house well. In 2006 the entire roof was re-tiled and improvements have been undertaken throughout.

Outside  

Approached from a sweeping driveway, the property stands well back from the road and is thus afforded total seclusion from all aspects on this sunny plot, a stones throw from the Village centre.

The gardens are most attractive and stocked with a variety of flowering shrubs and fauna.  Rhododendron
bushes and rose beds fringe the approach drive which leads to a large parking area.

The surrounding grounds offer many differing dimensions.  On slightly higher ground, exposed to the full sun there is a kidney shaped pool accessed by a gate (approx. 30' x 15') with a diving board and pool house with new boiler.  A large level lawned area to the eastern side can easily house a marquee and there is also a summer house and a greenhouse.

The village of Woldingham continues to be extremely popular offering a tranquil country setting, away from the bustle of the city yet within easy commuting distance.  Noted for the popular Woodlea Junior School, the highly rated Woldingham Girls School and Caterham School, the village has an active community at its heart.  The Village Hall hosts many social activities and the parish council are actively involved with the daily life of this North Down idyll.  The village centre, offers a convenience store and post office serving most daily needs, together with a saddlery and repairs and servicing garage.  Local amenities include golf at North Downs and The Woldingham golf clubs, tennis, cricket, amateur dramatics and other societies/groups, together with riding facilities.  There is easy access to surrounding Green  Belt countryside with its network of footpaths and bridleways.    

Woldingham Station offers a frequent service direct to London Victoria (approximately 35 minutes) and, changing at East Croydon, to other London stations including London Bridge, Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St. Pancras International and via Clapham Junction to other locations.  The M25 London Orbital motorway (Junction 6) is only 4 miles distance.  The local towns of Oxted and Caterham are a ten minute drive.
