Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming property is a superb example of a classic 1930's family home, full of the character associated with Frank Chown, the renowned local builder of the era. Having been owned within the family for nearly 60 years, there can be no better testament for what a wonderful place it is to be! The owners have improved and maintained their home to a particularly high standard, retaining many of the original features including latched oak doors, leaded light windows and an abundance of exposed oak beams. The impressive brick, render and beam elevations perfectly complement the charming thatched roof creating a delightfully appealing home. The welcoming entrance hall features an impressive oak staircase and is the true hub of this home, from which all the downstairs rooms radiate. The triple aspect sitting room has an abundance of elegant features. A magnificent brick fireplace with oak shingle chimney breasts, quarry tiled hearth and flanked by ornate carved bench seats is an outstanding focal point for the room. Enjoying a commanding view of the southerly facing garden, there is an appealing carved oak bar - an undoubtable talking point when entertaining! Leaded light doors open to the well proportioned dining room, again featuring a delightful herringbone brick fireplace, together with a lovely bay window with fitted bench seating from which to enjoy the view of the gorgeous garden. The study overlooks the front of the property and has an innovative built in oak desk and cabinet. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of modern cream cabinets with complementing 'golden beech' granite preparation surfaces and features integrated appliances by Neff. The practical boot room has access to the garden and adjoins the large utility room. Upstairs all 4 bedrooms are well proportioned double rooms, all enjoying various aspects over the gardens, 3 of which are fitted with wardrobes and draw units. The fully tiled bathroom is equipped with a modern white suite complete with Vernon Tutbury fittings.

The property is situated in a highly sought after private road within a few minutes walk of East Horsley village and railway station, providing access to Waterloo in approx. 45 minutes. There is access at the top of the road to Horsley Sports Club, the heart of the area's sports and social activity. There is an excellent choice of schools within the area in both the private and state sectors. Comprehensive shopping, entertainment and leisure facilities can be found about 8 miles away in the market town of Guildford. Both the A3 and M25 (Junction 10) are within a short drive, allowing easy access to central London and both Heathrow and Gatwick. For those who enjoy 'the country life', the Surrey Hills - a designated area of outstanding natural beauty - are close by, offering some of the best walking, cycling and horse riding countryside to be found in the South of England.

The property is approached via a gravel carriage driveway with a mature hedge and yew trees providing a high degree of privacy. There is a detached garage together with gated access to the rear garden. Being mainly lawned, with an established hedge perimeter, the southerly facing garden is clearly a passion of the owners. The flower borders are well stocked with an abundance of plants and shrubs and there are many mature trees which will offer a welcome shade on a sunny summer's day. There is a feature pond together with a stream which adds appeal and charm to the tranquil environment.
