Location
The property enjoys a wonderfully unspoilt location in a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amidst the rolling North Downs countryside. Ranmore Common, which is a
much loved protected open space, is a short distance away and the area in general is ideal for the riding and walking enthusiast. Dorking to the south east is a delightful market town with an excellent selection of mainstream and individual
shops including a large Waitrose store. Dorking also has a good sports/swimming centre, and the Dorking Halls hosts a variety of cultural events. Bookham and East Horsley are both well served villages with local amenities, and Effingham Junction offers train services to Waterloo and Victoria. Guildford to the west has an outstanding range of facilities as befits its status as
the county town. Schooling in the area is excellent with a good range of schools in the state and independent sectors - St. Teresa's School for Girls is located just to the north of the property.

The Property
A delightful period property which was formerly one of the lodges for what is now St. Teresa's School for Girls. The property dates, we believe, to the early part of the 19th Century and has been sensitively and imaginatively extended to
provide versatile accommodation. The accommodation briefly comprises; entrance lobby with three-quarter glazed double doors leading through to the sitting room, which is a delightful
room enjoying a double aspect with period style windows and features a large wood-burning stove with a handsome stone fireplace surround. From the sitting room, access is gained to the family room/snug with oak flooring and an attractive aspect over the property's gardens to the rear. From the sitting room, a door leads to the inner hall with access to the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a walk-through dressing area and a range of fitted wardrobes and drawers and an en-suite bathroom with corner shower. The fourth bedroom is located off the inner hall and enjoys a double aspect. From the inner hall, the staircase descends to the lower ground floor. The
kitchen/breakfast room is very much the hub of the house and the kitchen area has a range of hand-painted timber cupboard with granite work surfaces and an array of kitchen appliances. From the breakfast area, there are French doors which lead to the patio and rear garden. There are two further bedrooms, family bathroom, utility room, cloakroom and a boot room which acts as a drying room with access to the rear patio and
garden. The grounds are a lovely feature of White Lodge
extending just to the rear where the two stables and attached office are located. The gardens have been well maintained over the years offering a high degree of seclusion and are very much in harmony with the charm and character of the property. Beyond the sand school, there are two further stables and an adjacent paddock. To the south side of White Lodge a gravelled area provides parking. Please note that White Lodge has an established Right of Way along the length of the driveway located to the East of the property for which the Agents can supply further information upon request. A major attraction is the extensive grazing land which lies to the west of Critten Lane and consists of two large fenced fields with a high degree of screening thanks to mature deciduous trees. The two fields enjoy a wonderfully unspoilt scenic rural location and there are attractive distant views back to the home. In all, the grounds extend to about 28 acres.
