The traditional double fronted exterior of Magnolia with its classic 1930s style continues through to the interior but with a modern twist, further enhanced by the seamless addition of a double storey extension. The smart entrance hall, which has the original wooden flooring and internal doors with leaded light windows, opens left and right to the sitting room and dining room respectively. A pretty brick fireplace in the sitting room and an elegant curved bay window in the dining room both serve to remind one of the era in which the property was built. These rooms overlook the front and therefore benefit from a naturally sunny aspect and one can also access the patio from the back of the sitting room via a single patio door. To the rear of the hallway, a doorway opens into the extended kitchen/diner and family room which can certainly be described as the hub of the house with its relaxed seating area, views to the rear garden and the fitted modern kitchen with central breakfast bar. The room has a lovely light and spacious feel thanks to the clever use of a glazed semi pitched roof linking the old structure to the new and in addition, there is the unusual feature of an internal Juliet balcony, which certainly adds character to the room. The kitchen has black granite worktops and wooden units. The stainless steel range cooker has been neatly recessed with a mosaic tile splash back. There is space for dishwasher and a large double fronted American fridge/freezer. A door from the kitchen leads to what was the garage and which has been divided to create a good sized utility room and useful storage area for bicycles and the like.
The ascending staircase from the hallway turns the corner displaying the original wood spindled balustrade and handrail and gives way to the upstairs landing, with a large window from where there is a perfect view of the rear garden. A carpeted passageway links the four double bedrooms and fifth bedroom/study. The master bedroom is double aspect with a stripped wooden floor, fitted wardrobes on either side of the bed and an en suite shower room. The double guest room on the opposite side of the house boasts the Juliet balcony and has a useful bank of floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. In between the guest room and bedroom 4 is the family bathroom with fitted double sink and separate bath and shower.
This is a much loved family home in a very sought after location and must be seen!
The property is situated in a sought after private road, ideally located for access to East Horsley village, which is a few minutes walk away, offering a good range of shops and every day amenities. The station allows access to London Waterloo in approximately 45 minutes. The sought after Raleigh Primary school is within a few minutes walk, so there will be no excuse to be late for registration - or pick up! For the motorist, the A3 and M25 (junction 10) are close by, allowing easy access to central London, both Heathrow and Gatwick airports, together with the South East's extensive communication network. The Surrey Hills - a designated area of outstanding natural beauty - is nearby offering some of the best walking, cycling and horse riding countryside to be found in the South East of England. The county town of Guildford is approximately 8 miles away, providing a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities.
Garden & Exterior
The approach to the house is neatly landscaped with ample parking for 3 cars and a small lawned area, the focal point of which is the mature Magnolia tree. To the rear, the garden extends approximately 70 ft and is neatly framed on the far boundary by a row of mature oaks trees and an ash, and from which there is an open view of the playing fields beyond. The level lawn is immaculate and the garden is well stocked with some unusual mature shrubs including the lavender tree, a hazel tree and the hornbeam hedge creating the boundary to the right. The curved patio on the back of the house allows ample space for entertaining and there is side access to the front.
