LOCATION Situated in the delightful, rural village of Outwood, and within walking distance of three village public houses. With a couple of local pubs and a beautiful 19th Century church, it is surrounded by National Trust land with many bridle ways and footpaths ideal for dog walking and horse riding. The property is walking distance of Outwood Common with its famous windmill and picturesque cricket club. Gatwick is within an easy drive. There are local shops in Smallfield (2 miles) and a more comprehensive range of shops in Redhill (5 miles). There is a local primary school with other schools nearby including The Hawthorns, Dunottar, Reigate Grammar, St Bedes and Caterham. Both the M23 and M25 are easily accessible. Outwood has a tightknit, welcoming community. 

DESCRIPTION Centrally located within the plot, the house is approached by a private driveway leading to the garage with an area in front suitable for parking several cars. The enclosed glass porch leads into the entrance hall with attractive parquet flooring and a handy cloaks cupboard. The light and airy living room has a double aspect with large sliding patio doors straight out onto the patio. A stone mantle surrounds a warming, open fireplace which is very effective on those cooler nights. The open plan kitchen/dining room leads off the hallway, also enjoying a double aspect to the front and rear of the house. The area divided by a work surface with storage cupboards beneath. The kitchen is very well set out with a range of wall and base units, the sink and drainer are perfectly located under the large window overlooking the extensive garden. The double oven, dishwasher, electric hob and extractor fan are all integrated with space then for the fridge and washing machine. The oil fired boiler is located neatly beneath the work surface of the kitchen. A step down takes you to the rear door which doubles up as a separate entrance to the integral annex. The house was extended in 1989 to accommodate a granny flat to include a living room and double bedroom with a nicely appointed en-suite shower room.
Back in the hallway, next to the downstairs w.c, the stairs lead to the first floor, where a large window offers plenty
of light to the area and lovely views of the grounds. The family bathroom has a Jacuzzi corner bath and wash hand basin, with the w.c. in a separate room. There are four good sized bedrooms, two spacious double rooms and two smaller double rooms, the largest of the four has built in wardrobes.
The whole house benefits from double glazed windows, oil central heating (with new oil tank) and is fully alarmed.  

OUTSIDE The grounds are approximately three quarters of an acre,and with the house set in the centre of the plot the garden feels very spacious. Although there are neighbours, for the most part, the garden is not overlooked at all so there is a sense of complete privacy. The single garage has power and light and an electric up and over door. The garden is mainly level and laid to lawn with mature hedging around the edge. An area to the side has mature trees offering shade whilst other parts of the grounds are open and sunny. 

BEST BITS... In 2009 the current owners were granted planning permission to extend the house to include a large master en-suite and a double car port. This permission has since lapsed, however there is every chance it can be reinstated. This is the only house out of the four on this private road that has not had significant extensions.
