The Kitchen Breakfast Room has granite work surfaces and painted cabinetry, an induction hob and stainless steel cooking appliances.

The property is located on the prestigious William Webb Estate, a Conservation Area. The 260-acre Webb Estate was laid out at the end of the 19th Century with the gated roads gently curving to give the best possible plots to demonstrate William Webb's principal of "Gardens First". A wide variety of shopping facilities can be found in Croydon, about 4 miles distant, with a Westfield shopping centre due for development over the next few years. Local shops can also be found in Purley, Coulsdon, Banstead and Reigate, with the Webb Estate's own local village shop on the Village Green. Purley Rail Station provides fast and frequent services to London Bridge and Victoria with journey times of approximately 20 minutes. The M25/M23 interchange is about 5 miles away. Leisure facilities include Woodcote Park Golf Club and a large selection of health clubs, rugby and tennis clubs. Excellent local state grammar schools include Wilsons, Wallington County Grammar School, and Wallington High School for Girls (which are all in catchment). Private schools include Whitgift, Trinity, Croydon High School (GDST), Woldingham and Caterham. There is also a local Dulwich Foundation School Bus which serves Dulwich College, Alleyns and JAGS.


The house is approached via a pair of wrought iron gates with video entry and on to a sweeping drive which leads past an ornate water fountain to a detached triple garage and a parking and turning space in front of the house. The delightful gardens have been landscaped with simple sophistication in mind and include tall mature trees, large expanses of well-tended lawns, a fish pond and a wide York Stone terrace which traverses the rear of the house.
