Description

A stunning period house situated at the heart of this popular village, and has been in the same ownership for almost 50 years. The house retains its original features and has much character and charm. It is light and spacious and the solid wood floors and doors give warmth to the rooms. The main entertaining rooms have high ceilings, sash windows, and there are some notable ornate fireplaces.
On the ground floor there is a drawing room, sitting room, dining room, study conservatory, kitchen, two guest wc's and a spacious utility room. The drawing room, sitting room, conservatory and kitchen look over the garden with its pond and jacuzzi, and enjoy views of The Surrey Hills, which provide a dramatic backdrop to both the house and garden.
The first floor has a sitting room, 7 bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a linen room), 3 bathrooms and three additional wc's.

This elegantly proportioned house, ideal for entertaining, provides a delightful home for a family which could include elderly dependents. It has been the family home of the current owner for the past 50 years.
